The long-lived, fan-crazed boy band, the Jonas Brothers have called it quits.
The brothers have decided to take their own paths after several tours around the globe and numerous top hits.
The band consisted of the three brothers Nick Jonas, 21; Joe Jonas, 24; and Kevin Jonas, 25.
The band started their rise to fame in 2005 by taking over the Disney Channel starring in movies and TV shows.
For example, the Jonas Brothers played main characters in Disney’s “Camp Rock.”
According to People Magazine, in the first interview where the band spoke about their breakup, their decision to break up came after an Oct. 3 meeting where Nick shared his concerns about the band and its future.
“It’s really hard to say ‘forever.’ We’re closing a chapter, for sure,” Nick said in the issue. “I was feeling kind of trapped. I needed to share my heart with my brothers.”
Lauren Adams (freshman, fashion merchandising) said she was an avid listener of the Jonas Brothers back in the day, and that she was surprised to hear of the split up but also supports the decision.
“I feel like they just want to be on their own,” Adams said. “The brothers are getting old, and it is finally time to do their own thing. They have families to support and need to worry about themselves for a change.”
Karly Reinsel (freshman, special education) said she does not listen to the band any longer because of the change of tone from earlier years.
“The Jonas Brothers are just too old,” Reinsel said. “To sell songs and make girls want to come to concerts, you need young faces that will attract them to come and see you. When they first came out, they were a huge hit because they were teenage years, and now they are becoming too mature for the crowd they want to attract.”
Kevin Jonas told People that “it was a unanimous decision.”
The brothers have only agreed that the band is only separated for the time being.
According to People, “It’s over for now,” so there may be more from the JoBros in the future years.
Never say never.
