that they’re gonna have a world tour, and I’m gonna go to every state
around California, and I’m gonna drop thousands of dollars on them
and have zero regrets, because I am obsessed with them.
– (FBE) So, that was the video for the Jonas Brothers’ new song,
“Sucker,” which they recently released as a total surprise to fans
after a six-year-long hiatus. – I know! I KNOW! – (FBE) All right, so before

♪ Burning up ♪ – ♪ For you baby ♪
– AHHHHH! Ah! I can’t!
I’m gonna be here all day. – Back in the day especially,
there are just so manufactured! They’re so plastic!
There’s literally no depth to them! And now, it’s like they’re
with their wives and it’s fun, and they have chemistry. And I feel like
that’s so important in a video. – (FBE) All right, so let’s go back
to the first video we showed you and their comeback.
So, in just a week since its release, the video has amassed
over 50 million views and was one of the most talked about
moments on social media. – When I saw that the Jonas Brothers
came out with a new song, huge surprise.
I was honestly shocked. – (FBE) Why do you think
that this is such a big deal to so many people?
– Because everyone waited so long! Everyone’s loving it
because it’s the same sound. You hear the music
and you’re like, “Yes, that’s the Jonas Brothers.”
– I think there’s just one big reason why people are freaking out,
and it’s just nostalgia. – This is part of
so many people’s childhoods, like the movies,
the shows that they had. They blew the [bleep] up.
– Because they’re brothers too that it was so sad for them
to break off and do their own thing. This is kind for all of the fans
that are grown up and got married and then stuff, that’s it like–
this is them coming back and saying, like, “Hey, we’re okay.
We’re still brothers. We still love each other.
We still wanna do this thing.” – (FBE) So, the brothers have said
that they combined Nick and Joe’s solo sounds to create
this new sound for the group. – 100%. You can tell
that they’ve combined their sounds, but it was a smart decision. – (FBE) What do you think
about this new era of Jonas Brothers’ sound
compared to their old classics? – I definitely see some maturity.
I mean, not as much as I would’ve liked.
They’re not, like, a George Clooney. – As they mature, their music has to,
and I think that’s normal. And it would’ve been weird
if they were still singing songs like “Year 3000.”
– It does sound a lot more like DNCE and Nick Jonas’s solo stuff,
which I have always gravitated more towards. Never hardcore,
but more than the original JoBros. – (FBE) All right. So, let’s dig
a little bit into the past. How old were you
when the Jonas Brothers were at the height
of their popularity, and how did you feel
about them back then? – I think I was 12.
And I literally couldn’t care less about them.
I was uncool for not liking them. – 11 or 12.
Their music wasn’t for me, but I never disliked them.
– 2007. I was in seventh grade. I was a middle schooler.
Too cool for the Jonas Brothers, like, I can’t be fans of them.
– We were in the seventh grade, ’cause we waited 11 hours
in line to see them. (laughs) And we skipped school to go see them.
– Yeah, we did. – 14, 15. And then as they kind of
caught that wind from there– And I definitely had total jelly,
like jelly feelings, because all the girls I liked
were into them. – Nine or ten then
when the Jonas Brothers were at their peak
right around 2008. My older cousins,
who I always really looked up to loved the Jonas Brothers.
So, it was perfect, because it was
the three of us together. And the two older ones
were like, “Yeah, I’m gonna marry Joe.” “I’m gonna marry Nick.”
So, I got stuck with Kevin. And no offense to Kevin,
but I wanted Nick! – Nine years old,
and those guys were my idols. They were everything
I wanted to be. This is really embarrassing,
but I wrote on the wall with a sharpie–
This is fourth grade me. I wrote their lyrics on a wall,
because it was just like– I don’t know.
I had to do that. – (FBE) So, one of the big aspects
that many tabloids liked to discuss back then
were the Jonas Brothers and their purity rings,
being on Disney and being a symbol to wait for the right person.
– My favorite tweet was, “The Jonas Brothers are back,
and they’ve had sex.” – I remember seeing everything
about the purity rings and being like, “I know these boys
are banging Selena Gomez behind the scenes.” Like,
you cannot tell me that they weren’t! – I had one because of them.
– One of the things I did like about them is that they were
totally open with their religion and totally open
with wearing purity rings. And that was the coolest thing,
especially coming from a Christian family and wanting
to wait and stuff like that. But now that they’re older
and stuff, they’ve experienced life and they lived their own lives
and they chose what they wanted to do, and they got married
and they did their own thing. – (FBE) So now, all three brothers
are either married or engaged, and their new song has a sexier vibe
than what fans may have been used to from their previous music.
– Well, yeah. They’ve experienced more life.
They’ve made it past first base. – (FBE) So, what do you
think it’s like for fans to see them grow up
and to see them go from kids on Disney to a more
mature style and music? – I mean, it’s cool,
’cause we forget that celebrities are people too,
and they age, and they go through their own things.
Now that they’re older and they see them grow with them,
it must be really cool. – I don’t think it’s all that weird.
It feels almost perfect just because a lot of their fans
are older now, so they’re kind of ready
for these mature themes. – It’s like watching your babies.
(chuckles) It’s like, I knew that dude
when he was singing ♪ Hold on ♪ And now, he’s over here
singing about adult themes. It’s just– it’s insane.
– It’s normal for them to grow up. But it’s difficult,
because, you know, you know them so well
as these young kids. But at the same time,
they had to. – (FBE) So finally,
as a young adult now, you are one of the first generations
of adults who grew up with social media,
allowing fans to follow artists or groups as they got older
and evolved or even split up like the Jonas Brothers.
So, how is this different than generations of the past who
grew up with their favorite artist but without social media around?
– I think it gives a bit more mystery to the artist.
It might draw you into them a little bit more,
because there is no social media. – Social media has twisted fandoms
into the most amazing thing and the most dark, twisted,
horrible thing, because you have these
whole communities online that are just rabid,
which means that it makes the bad really bad
and the good really good. It just spreads so much quicker now.
It’s so much more in your face all the time than it was back then.
– Yeah, that’s true. We had to wait till
the next Tiger Beat freaking magazine came out
with all the posters and had to buy every single
one of them and just use all the posters.
– Yeah! – It’s just more informative.
Having social media, you have a, “Oh,
they released Wire,”” “They tweeted this,”
or “They said this.” And it’s like–
it’s a good way to compile a whole bunch of different information.
– The relationship between the fans and the celebrity
is so much easier and authentic now
because the celebrity is the one that’s creating the content.
Before everything seemed to be, like, maybe there’s a middleman
or it was produced and there wasn’t that authenticity
that social media allows. – With social media,
we got to see a more personal side of them rather than
when they were on TRL or when their music videos
played on MTV. I’m gonna make up for the time
in 2008 when I didn’t go to any of their concerts,
and I’m gonna be the first one at that door at my computer buying
whatever concert tickets I need. I don’t know.
Maybe I’ll mess around and become a groupie.
I’m totally cool with it. – Thanks for watching
