In honor of the New Year, we thought that we would countdown the top 5 events that pop’ed our world. Number 3 on our countdown hit home for many…it’s the Jonas Brother breakup (get your tissues ready!).
The Jonas Brothers were the breakout group during the Disney “let’s pimp out our musically gifted actors” period (early 2000’s to…well now) . After a year or two break, Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas decided to get the band back together in the fall of 2012 for a world tour. The brothers toured all over the world as they continued to work on their fifth album, cleverly titled “V” (That roman numerals for five). As they were on the heels of starting their comeback tour, they cancelled that tour and deleted their twitter account. This was the start of the downward spiral of Jonas Brothers fans across the world that I’ve have called “Jonapocalypse”. But October 29, 2013 will be a day that will live in infamy.
On that fateful day, it was announced that the Jonas Brothers would be breaking up and going their separate ways (how does brothers break up anyways !?!).
Our own Bailey Miller summed up effect of the Jonas Brothers the best:
I honestly don’t even know what to think of this…They were such a huge part of my life for years. My room was covered in their faces as a teenager, I have all the albums, the book, the movies, everything. Their concert in 2008 for the “Burning Up Tour” was honestly one of the best ones I have ever been to…It’s just sad to see it all end over some “disagreement”. They really are talented musicians and songwriters, and I can only hope it isn’t forever…
While none of the brothers has talked about what caused this break up, it’s still being felt by the Jonas Brother fan community.
Check back on December 30th for the number 2 event in our Top 5 events in 2013 that pop’ed our world.
