Nick on the questions they used to get about the purity rings they wore: “The very simple answer is that it was incredibly annoying. And then it became a defining factor of who we were as a band, which was disappointing. I was just trying to navigate love, and romance, and what sex even meant to me, at a sensitive age. The question should have been: is it appropriate for people to talk about a 16 year old’s sex life? It’s absolutely not — and it wouldn’t necessarily fly today.”

Joe on the tipping point for the band: “At some point [the band] got so dysfunctional that we didn’t even let in outside writers. We didn’t have a producer. We didn’t have a label. We were like, ‘We’re good with this.’ Not to speak of memes, but it was like that dog and the burning house: ‘This is fine.’”

On their infamous breakup in 2013:
Kevin: “Being back with the Jonas Brothers? I truly never thought it would happen. Like, ever. When that chapter closed, it closed. I put that book on the shelf….It was like, ‘You’re joking.’ And then it was like, ‘Fuck this. And fuck you guys.’ I was like, I’m going to go figure out what’s next for me and this will never happen again.”

Joe: “I was like, ‘I’m not doing this again.”

Nick: “Right after the band broke up, I didn’t know if we would ever speak again.”

Nick on being the one who ended the band: “I felt guilty for having been so honest. But I was also aware that was absolutely what needed to be done. I could have done a better job of communicating the way I felt. I’d had a month or two to live with this decision I’d made, and they hadn’t.”

Nick on his wife, Priyanka Chopra: “Certainly the person I ended up falling in love with and marrying is very famous and successful and all of that. I couldn’t have predicted that would happen, that life would take me down that path. The fact that she’d been working in this business for as long as I have, we could relate on that. I’m grateful to have found the right person.”

Joe on his marriage to Sophie Turner: “We had to do a legal marriage before we did a real big one.” They’re having a wedding in France this summer, but they needed to get the union on the books in the U.S. beforehand. “It was either the courthouse, or our version, and I preferred our version. Friends, Elvis and Ring Pops.”

Joe on how Sophie helped him fix his relationships with Kevin and Nick: “It encouraged me to see she has such a great relationship with her brothers. That was really a big thing for me to be able to look at, and say, ‘I gotta get my shit together.’”

Joe on pop stars not bothering with secrecy anymore: “That’s why everyone loves Cardi B so much. She’s the Queen right now, because she is so brutally honest on her Instagram, whether it’s about herself, or others, politics. She’s a badass. I think people respond to that way more to that, than any kind of mystery.”
