5 Things We Learned From Watching the Jonas Brothers Documentary
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard that the Jonas Brothers are back with a number one song, a new album, a book and a documentary. Talk about promo, huh?
If you’re not a Jo-Bro fan, like I am, let me spare you the time of watching their new Amazon documentary, “Chasing Happiness,” and tell you five shocking things I learned from it:
Miley Cyrus was basically the catalyst for Nick Jonas‘ songwriting career.
Joe was offered “Camp Rock,” but it was his dad who said, “the brothers or no one.”
Can you picture “Camp Rock” without the iconic Nick Jonas song Introducing Me? Neither can I. So imagine my shock while watching the documentary and Kevin Sr. (the Jonas’ dad) revealed how Disney wanted Joe for “Camp Rock.” Like, only Joe. But he told them, “all the brothers or no one” and the rest is history. Gasp.
The brothers spent years without seeing each other. For real.
We always see the JoBros being all happy and familiar but that wasn’t always the case. According to Kevin, after the band broke up, he didn’t see his brothers until the birth of his daughters, Alena and Valentina, who, like all of us, is obsessed with Nick.
They hated the “Jonas” TV show:
It was so bad that I even forget they had it, but at least I’m not the only one. Nick admitted, one of the worst decisions he ever made was accepting a second season of their t.v. show “Jonas,” which he felt stifled the evolution of the band.
Growing apart made them come back together.
After the breakup, each brother went through their own journey of self-discovery—experiencing success, failure and love. Their individual experiences gave them the perspective to realign priorities and come back together, as a family.
