Joe Jonas says his brother Nick's decision to break up the Jonas Brothers hit him like a 'tsunami' in group’s new memoir

"It felt formal, serious… and permanent," the singer writes in the group's forthcoming memoir, Blood.

On Tuesday, the singer and member of the pop groups the Jonas Brothers and DNCE, shared an excerpt from the brothers' forthcoming book, Blood, on Instagram. The post details how he felt when he and his siblings, Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas, decided to take a break from their band after Nick admitted his "heart was no longer in this."

"The tsunami inside of me built until it broke and crashed through everything in its path. But sometimes things need to break down so they can be built up again on a stronger foundation," Joe captioned a black-and-white picture of the brothers looking over a mountain. "As we grow through our lives, I know I'll always have my brothers, as family, as friends, and as BLOOD."

The second slide in Joe's post features a full excerpt from the book.

"When people picture tsunamis, they usually think of it as this majestic, perfectly formed wave that ends in tragedy and destruction. It's brilliantly blue and crests above the horizon as it approaches landfall. It's almost a work of art," the excerpt reads. "That's not really what a tsunami looks like. It's ugly. It's not really even a wave. The ocean simply doesn't stop when it hits land. It builds up at the shore, and, when there's too much displacement, the water breaks free and the ocean spills forth, collecting filth and destroying everything in its path."

The singer adds, "I walked into that meeting like a tourist going to the beach. I kicked back on the couch, said, 'What's going on,' and put my feet up. I didn't see the tsunami coming. And the tsunami was inside me, building up as Nick spoke."

"I still remember the exact words he said, which were a bit different than what Kevin recalled but hit me a lot harder: 'My heart is no longer in this,'" Joe said. "It was like something our dad would say. Very pastorlike. Something an old-fashioned gentleman might say to his partner when getting divorced. It felt formal, serious… and permanent."

The "tsunami" building inside Joe was set loose by his older brother's response. "Kevin was going on about a breakup tour. 'We can figure this out,' he was saying," writes Joe. "'We'll just say, 'This is it. We're breaking up. And we're going to do this farewell tour.' How could he be cool with this so quickly? It was all over, and he was trying to market it. This was not okay. I opened my mouth to speak, and the words burst out."

JoBros fans can read about the band's split, reunion, and more when the memoir - which alternates between each brother's perspective and is co-authored by Neil Strauss - hits shelves Nov. 9.

Yeah, well Nick came for a reunion real quick when his solo career never happened.

I don't personally find Nick to be that attractive

He’ll be back

Were they hoping to be like The Monkees and start making interesting and well-produced music after they broke away from Mickey's clutches?

by Anonymousreply 506/09/2021

I think Nick's attractive but watching him try to sing is excruciating.

I don't want to read a book by Joe Jonas unless it's a coffee table book of his nudes.

They way Joe talks about The Jonas Brothers makes it seem as if they were on the level as The Beatles lmfao. Their target demographic was little girls who got older and moved on to different music. The JoBros themselves aged out of the Disney circuit. Now, the JoBros are enjoying renewed success, 10 years later, because of nostalgia. They should get The Cheetah Girls, Hilary Duff, Ashley Tisdale and Jesse McCartney for a package tour.

BTW, Nick was already had solo experience before the band was formed. He had a Christian pop record which he obviously tries to bury just like Katy Hudson (now Perry) does.

[quote] I still remember the exact words he said, which were a bit different than what Kevin recalled, but hit me a lot harder:

You recall it differently because you’re...special, Joseph. And neither of us love you any less for that. In fact, the love we have for you is very special, and, well...different, from the love Nick and I have for each other. Maybe one day you’ll be ready to hear all about that, buddy. Do you need me to get your blankey while you say goodnight to your little friends here?

Are the Jonas brothers white?

by Anonymousreply 1406/09/2021

I always thought they were Latino or mixed with Native American. Joe looks very Sicilian though which he got from his mother. Nick and Kevin look like their father which will result in unfortunate looks as they age.

Miss Joe basically discovered that Nick was also fucking Kevin, sending her wild with jealousy.

Also incredibly convenient that this tidbit gets released before they go out on tour. Side note: Their Vegas residency was on the verge of starting here in Vegas before Covid shut everything down.

Kevin: looks like a top, is a bottom Joe: looks like a bottom, is a bottom Nick: looks like a top, is a top Frankie: looks like a bottom, is a top

also when did we decide that Joe is the most gay one? It’s Kevin, all day every day and twice on Sunday....

Mr. Deleasa: [referring to making a salad for dinner] I would make a fanuk! Kevin: 😨.....

Is Joe the one who looks like an angry maitre d or is he the one who looks like his mom is also his aunt?

by Anonymousreply 2206/10/2021

Joe married an English girl, but he’s never really papped over here or anything. Did she move to the States, or are they just laying low outside of London?

Then again, the Jonas Brothers were never that popular in the U.K., so no-one’s really bothered about him. DNCE did ok in the charts, though.

by Anonymousreply 2306/10/2021

Whenever anyone brings up the Jonas Brothers, I’m always compelled to return that hilarious and shocking little scene in an episode of MARRIED TO JONAS, when Kevin hits on his teenage sister-in-law’s cute jock prom-date. Kevin opens the front door and in a second literally fawns and falls drooling all over this guy, even snatching the corsage from the poor kid’s hand and telling him he smells good. Brazen hussy!

(the moment is about 7m 30s into the clip at the link)

I couldn't care less. He's the least attractive of the three.

Nick came running back when he didnt become the big star he thought he was going to be. He's a huge famewhore.

by Anonymousreply 2706/10/2021

R27 right. It’s obvious that Nick sees his brothers and their band as a fallback plan B. If I were Kevin & Joe, I’d be rather insulted; what’s more, I’d be blackmailing baby bro a little harder, if he reaaaallly needs to go out on tour again...

by Anonymousreply 2806/10/2021

R27 U hit it right on the head. Despite tv deals, pictorials, solo-music career and a much publicized wedding; he's still 'meh.'

Nick has big solo dreams for himself, I dont think they are going to happen. Especially since Joe is a better singer and actor. And Kevin is a nicer human.

by Anonymousreply 3406/10/2021

Nick was terrible when he was in SMASH and I've seen video of him in Les Miz and he's forgettable.

Nick does not have what is takes to be a star in his own right.

by Anonymousreply 3506/10/2021

Nick got lucky with "Jealous". His music is extremely boring and devoid of any substance. The only acceptable album he ever made was Nick Jonas and The Administration where he tried to be a kid version of Springsteen. How he went from trying to make blues rock to shallow disposable pop trash, I'll never know.

The rumor is that "Cherokee" blood is actually just a code for black blood. Given their dad is from the South, it would not be surprising if they had some black in them.

R4& the phrase ‘gay as blazes’ was invented for men like Kevin.

Straightwashing Nick & Joe is a crapshoot, but I understand the attempt from a greedy fundie point-of-view; how the Jonai parents think they can pass Kevin off as straight all his life is a wonder. Then again, some people are buying it to this day.

But I know all of you people on DL are intelligent enough to deduct it from the context.

Didn’t they all marry Jesus first, but Jesus wasn’t having it?

I think Kevin is the only one who is really gay. The other 2 like to gay bait. I agree that Nick will not age well. Joe is the best looking of the three.
