The Jonas Brothers’ triumphant return is in full swing. The dashing trio surprised and delighted fans when they released their new song, ‘Sucker.’ After a week of multiple promotional appearances, Kevin, Nick and Joe rounded things off with an appearance on late night talk show host James Corden’s much-loved celeb segment, Carpool Karaoke. The footage has now racked up over 11 million views. To the joy of millions of millennial fans, the Jonas boys belted out some of their catchiest tracks alongside the British funnyman. But in between the sing-along moments, the brothers revealed some seriously juicy secrets.
Speaking of their decision to reunite after a six year split, Nick shared, “When it ended, it wasn’t the best…We started saying, there is a magic in there that we’d like to feel again.” It was also revealed that Nick was the reason the band initially decided to break up. “I broke the band up, but I got the band back together,” Nick said, as Kevin joked that it made for a “true redemptive story.” The conversation eventually turned to the brothers and their infamous decision to wear purity rings. “Purity rings were to wait for the right person, when the time was right,” Joe recalled. “…You do that because we grew up in a church, and our dad was a pastor and so like, this came natural for everyone we grew up with to go through this and get one and say, ‘I’m going to wait for the right person.’” Needless to say the press had a field day with the boys’ public declaration of abstinence. Eventually, the brothers decided to take them off. “…We just kind of decided at one point, we’re like, ‘Look, this is not who we are. We don’t need to be wearing these anymore. This is annoying. People are making fun of it anyway,” explained Joe. A coy Kevin then admitted to having been the first brother to officially ‘take off the ring.’
To the brothers’ apparent surprise, the three were then hooked up to a lie detector. They were asked a few light-hearted questions like which brother gets on their nerves the most and whether Nick was ever exasperated by having to participate in so many wedding ceremonies with his new wife, actress Priyanka Chopra. “It was when I looked at the bill,” he joked. Corden also pressed Nick as to whether he considered himself a “better singer” than his brothers. When he answered “no,” it was revealed to be a lie. Kevin was also caught in a lie when he said that he did not want to “punch Nick” for splitting up the band. To watch the entertaining segment, click here.
