A Farewell to Nick Jonas

Ladies, it’s happened. Our childhood is dead. As of December 1, 2018, 2/3 of the Jonas Brothers (aka the JoBros if you’re a real one) are married.

 

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra wed in India at the Umaid Bhawan Palace. According to CNN, the couple were both dressed in custom-designed Ralph Lauren ensembles and became husband and wife in both a Christian and subsequent Hindu ceremony to honor both of their cultures. BTW, this was after Priyanka had her celeb bridal shower at Tiffany & Co. in October. It’s fine. I’m fine. Everything is fine.

 

 

So yeah. Lots of feels right now. Let’s all come together, pour one out and remember all the good times we had with Nick Jonas.

 

Year 3000 (2006)

Ugh, what cute little nuggets they were. Nick, Joe and Kevin are about 14, 17 and 19, respectively, here.

 

The hit single “Year 3000” came off of the Jonas Brothers’ first album “It’s About Time”. Who remembers this music video being played on repeat on Disney Channel? Good times.

 

His Disney Start - Guest starring on Hannah Montana (2007)

Okay first, can someone lmk what on earth Joe is wearing on his head? Oh 2007, what a strange time.

 

This episode also skyrocketed all the pre-existing “Niley” rumors and basically confirmed they were dating. Their relationship (and breakup) would go on to bring us such jams as “Before the Storm,” “7 Things I Hate About You” and several others.

 

Camp Rock (2008)

Nick dishing out the tough love by sending bandmate Shane Gray (Joe) off to Camp Rock to get his **** together. TBH I feel like if Nick Jonas were there to tell us all to get our **** together before finals, we’d all have 4.0s.

 

Burnin’ Up (2008)

 

Peep Selena Gomez’s cameo in the music vid. Nick was breaking hearts and dating our faves left and right. This and “Lovebug” were classic tunes to belt out in the car and annoy your parents with. Dedication was knowing all the lyrics AND the rap by Big Rob.

 

Their 3D movie (2009)

We all rolled up to that movie theatre with our JoBros graphic t-shirts and J-14 posters hanging on our walls at home. We also held scholarly debates about who was the cutest — Nick or Joe (sorry Kevin).

 

The Show “Jonas” (2009-2010)

As their career was exploding, the brothers got their own TV series on Disney Channel called “Jonas”. We got to watch our boys entertain us weekly, even though Joe would later write an essay on his dislikes of the band’s career, one of them being “Jonas”.

 

Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (2010)

Nick made us all swoon with probably one of the most romantic scenes in DCOM history. When he can sing AND listen to your concerns about his ability to be vulnerable and communicate — then adjusting his behavior accordingly? Goals. This is why we all have such high standards now. Thank you, Nick Jonas.

 

The JoBros Breakup (2013)

In 2013, the boy band announced they would be splitting up due to deep creative differences. Sad times.

 

Chains (2014)

Nick Jonas had a big year in 2014. After doing smaller side projects after the band broke up, he came back with a bang! He released “Chains,” “Jealous” and did that famous Calvin Klein photo shoot. Yeah, THAT Calvin Klein photo shoot. *fans self* We all realized in 2014 that Nick Jonas went from cute to HOT.

 

Nick hasn’t stopped since 2014. He has continued to collab on a variety of songs and movie soundtracks including “Close” with Tove Lo and the Ferdinand soundtrack.

 

Congrats Nick and Priyanka on starting your new life as a married couple. Nick, we’ll always have a spot in our hearts for you.

 

I don’t even want to think about the members of One Direction getting married though.
