While it seemed that life couldn’t be better for the Jonas Brothers, many fans didn’t know that Nick was hiding a secret — he had been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
His everyday health struggles inspired one of the band’s biggest hits, “A Little Bit Longer”, a song Nick wrote one day when he was struggling to balance his sugar levels. Nick even revealed that he’s found himself struggling to maintain his sugar levels while performing, but is thankful that his brothers are always there to support him and have his back.
Starring alongside former child-star Demi Lovato, the Jonas Brothers got even more attention with their roles in the Disney Channel original movie, "Camp Rock." The brothers played members of a fictitious group called Connect 3.
The film, which featured the boys in some rather questionable early 2000s clothing (think lots of skinny scarves and even skinnier jeans! ) became a huge hit. In addition to acting, the brothers released a soundtrack for the film. The film was so successful that the boys returned for the sequel in 2010, called "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam."
Burnin’ Up the Charts
The Jonas Brothers soon found themselves frequent fixtures at the top of the music charts with hits like “S.O.S”, “Burnin’ Up”, and the Miley Cyrus collaboration “We Got the Party”. Not too shabby!
Their luck continued with other major hits like “Hold On” and “When You Look Me in the Eyes”. Joe Jonas continued to win the hearts of his Disney fans with the collaboration with Demi Lovato on the song “This Is Me” which reached the top ten on the Billboard charts and sold almost a million copies.
From Opening to Starring
The Jonas Brothers may have started in the same way as many Disney Channel stars (starring in Disney Channel original movies and shows), but the boys soon became stars in their own right.
Though they starred in an episode of "Hannah Montana" and opened for Miley Cyrus, the boys soon became stars with their own loyal fans. Soon, the roaring crowds were chanting “Jonas Brothers” and hundreds of fans would line the streets just to be in the same vicinity as the talented trio of brothers.
It seems that the Jonas Brothers, or rather one brother, got a bit too close to Miley Cyrus when they joined her "Best of Both Worlds" Tour. Much to the dismay of their fans, Nick and Miley started dating. They dated for two years before calling it quits in 2007.
Miley told news outlets that their breakup was devastating and inspired her to dye her famous blonde hair dark. She even joked that she would one day end up marrying Nick. Considering Miley is now a divorcée, maybe Priyanka Chopra should watch her back?
