Kicking off the week with some brotherly bonding, Nick and Joe Jonas were spotted out to lunch in New York City today (May 7).
The “Burnin Up” rockers were joined by a friend as they waited for a table outside Peels Restaurant on Bowery and gave a thumbs-up to the nearby shutterbugs.
In career news, the Jonas Brothers have decided to sever ties with their record label Hollywood Records.
Nick told press, “This was a decision that we made as a group. Naturally, as with any partnership, when you do part ways, there is emotion tied to it. We’ve been blessed to have a lot of success with Hollywood and with Disney, but speaking on behalf of my brothers [Joe and Kevin] and our team, we’re all looking forward to this next chapter. We’re ready for that next step as a group, and being able to take our work with us was so important.”
“In these past three years, my brothers and I have not released a record, but we’ve really come into our own as men. And we’ve also lived life, which is an important part to making a record. I’ve got a studio set up in my apartment in New York where we can all put down our ideas. It’s a really liberating feeling to just be able to create and write whatever is on our hearts.”
Happy International Jonas Brothers Day, Love Bugs! (It was made up years ago. Google it.) The Twitter world’s helping spread the joy of JB Day with the trending topic of “Happy Jonas Day,” so we thought we’d hop on the bandwagon in our own way by announcing 10 reasons why we appreciate Nick, Joe and Kevin. We know what you’re thinking: “WHAT?! Only ten reasons??” But we promise they’re good!
1. The give us good TV. (RIP Jonas L.A.) Hello, Married to Jonas E! reality series!
2. They’re loyal. Well, at least Kevin is… (We’ll see what happens with Nick & Joe.)
3. They’re stylish. From spiffy blazers to colored pants, matching shoes to slicked back hair, these guys never go wrong on the red carpet.
4. They’re super-attractive. Just look at those smiles!
5. They have a sense of humor. Remember Nick on CBS’ I Get That A Lot prank show?
6. They’re family-oriented. After all, they are the Jonas Brothers.
7. They have many talents. Have you seen Nicky sing and dance on Broadway?!
8. Oh, and they’re athletic. Kevin playing baseball = HOT!
9. They give us juicy headlines. How often does Joe have a new GF? And they’re always
10. Most importantly… the music! As @RadiantJonas so elegantly puts it, ”7 years. 100+ songs. 5 albums. 42+ awards. 10 million+ albums sold. 36+ Gold and Platinum Certifications. Millions of fans. Happy Jonas Day”
A member of the Jonas Brothers has teamed with executive producer Ryan Seacrest for an E! series that promises to give viewers a different kind of New Jersey-based reality show.
Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle will star in Married to Jonas, a docu-soap series that chronicles both the young couple’s suburban domestic life and Jonas’ re-teaming with his siblings Joe and Nick as the group gets ready to record new music.
“Danielle is living a true Cinderella story after marrying into pop royalty, partnering in Kevin’s larger-than-life career and becoming a ‘Jonas,’ a name synonymous with hit music and a worldwide fan base,” said Lisa Berger, president of entertainment programming for E!. “The series presents a unique look at a young couple and their families from two entirely different worlds, one small town and one dealing with international fame, coming together as one and starting a whole new life together.”
The show explores the relationship between Danielle, who comes from a large and outspoken Italian family, and Jonas, one third of the internationally known pop group. For Danielle, marrying a Jonas in 2009 meant joining brother-in-laws Joe, Nick, youngest brother Frankie, father Kevin Sr., who manages the band, and mom Denise, the matriarch of the Jonas empire.
“I vividly recall believing from the very first time that I met them that the Jonas Brothers would, without a doubt, become a worldwide cultural sensation,” said Seacrest, who executive produces the series along with Stephanie Bloch Chambers and Adam Sher. “When we learned that Dani married Kevin, our production team became curious about what life would be like for a young bride entering the excitement, and sometimes chaos, of a pop star’s life. Looking through the lens of young love, the show will examine the ups and downs of Dani and Kevin’s marriage, against the backdrop of their contrasting family cultures, traditions and individual careers.”
Married to Jonas will make its debut on E! on Aug. 19 at 10 p.m.
Joe Jonas walks around with his rumored new girlfriend on Tuesday (April 10) in New York City.
The 22-year-old singer and his mystery girl stepped out together for an afternoon of shopping and relaxing.
“Just stopped by the @armaniexchange Pop Down shop in NYC got some rad stuff! Go to there store,” Joe tweeted.
Joe has reportedly been dating the mystery brunette since December, when they were first seen dancing the night away at New York’s Meatpacking District nightclub Catch.
Joe most recently dated Twilight starlet Ashley Greene.

Find Your Focus:
“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to be a celebrity mentor this year,” says singer Demi Lovato. “Empowering teens to reach for their dreams is important to me because having big goals will keep you focused and on the right path. In the face of challenges or pressure, having the motivation to achieve something great gives you a purpose.”
Know Anything is Possible:
“No dream is too small,” says celebrity mentor Joe Jonas. “You have to believe in yourself first and know that anything is possible. When you’re young, it’s a time to explore your dreams and find a way to make them a reality.”
Be True to Yourself:
“I’ve been lucky to have a lot of support in my life from family and friends, but as an actor there’s always pressure about what you look like and what you do, which can be a challenge,” says celebrity mentor Tyler Blackburn. “As a mentor, I want to be able to share that throughout your journey, it’s about really knowing who you are. Surround yourself with people who truly like you for you and don’t compromise yourself for anyone.”
Hard Work Pays Off:
“Last year I was a mentor to a fellow runner,” says celebrity mentor Allyson Felix, “and I was excited to share the ups and downs of my journey with him so that he would understand how hard work pays off. He taught me a lesson as well; every up and down gives you an opportunity to improve, every grueling practice a chance to overcome. It was amazing how we both inspired each other to be better.”
Confidence Comes From Within:
“Growing up in the front of the camera, I learned firsthand that confidence is found within,” says celebrity mentor Meaghan Martin. “With all the successes and challenges that come with growing up, I’m inspired by all these teens out there that have such unique, wonderful dreams. I’m excited to share a message of confidence, reminding them that it is what’s inside that will drive them to succeed.”

With younger brother Nick currently on Broadway, Joe Jonas is also venturing out on his own. “I love to just bike-ride everywhere,” he said last night at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares benefit at the Intrepid Air and Space Museum. Chief among his favorite stops? “Brooklyn has been really cool, to be able to see some of the street art and work that people have done,” much of which has been documented on his Twitter account through Instagram. But Jonas doesn’t want you to think of him as just another softie, celebrity-dilettante biker. The boy-bander says he gets his cues from the most fearless pedalers of all, the city’s bike messengers. “You watch [them] and you learn their ways and how they move around, and then you’re all right.”
Are you jonesin for some Jonas Bros action??
Well, tweak no more because the serenading siblings have signed a development deal with E! and are currently filming a family-based realty show in NYC.
The show will follow Kevin and his wife Danielle in their marital bliss, Nick as he takes on How To Succeed In Business Without Even Trying, and Joe doing…something. Oh, yeah! The solo career! Right, right!
Oh man! The Kardashians have some kompetition!
Maybe the two shows will eventually combine creating the ultimate reality romp.
Just add a dash of Jersey Shore for good measure and you have yourself a killer reality souffle. Consume with caution!!
Will U watch the Jobro reality show?

According to the NY Daily News, sources say Joe, 22, and Nina, 19, were seen canoodling during NBA All-Star Weekend in Orlando, Fla., in late February and more recently were spotted getting cozy at both Mansion and LIV nightclubs in Miami.
In the past, Joe has been linked to a slew of celebrity ladies, including Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Camilla Belle and Ashley Greene.
Although their relationship has not been confirmed, they would make a cute couple, don’t you think?
