During the early stages of their career, the Jonas Brothers were seen as role models and teen idols by their fans. And drew much media attention when they made the decision. Similarly, to begin wearing purity rings during their time on the Disney Channel. Though he has stated that the rings helped “shape [his] view of sex”, Nick felt his faith became more about his personal relationship with God.
Moreover, Jonas has more recently earned the title of a sex symbol following a string of provocative photo shoots. Jonas has often rejected the title, claiming “I don’t really consider myself [a sex symbol]. If someone wants to give me that title, that’s fine, but I don’t say these words about myself. I just try to be humble, make sexy music and push the envelope a little bit.”

Partnering with five different charities, their goal is to raise money and awareness for diabetes.
