The UK-based One Direction, have even openly admitted to admiring the Jonas Brothers both personally and professionally. When asked about the JB, One Direction’s Niall Horan recently stated, “Legends. The Jonas Brothers are legends.” All of these boy bands, although having their own unique musical identities, have been touched by the phenomena that are the Jonas Brothers. They simply cannot help but to imitate the actions of the three individuals who transformed the identity of a rock and roll band for years to come –and this is something that will continue to be denied by those grackle-fans who have abandoned the Jonas Brothers for said-newer bands.
Many individuals will and have claimed that the Jonas Brothers have already reached the peak of their success, and that they have “broken up” or that their window of fame is quickly fading This is simply untrue.
These same individuals are also the ones who believe that Jonas Brothers fans fall into a narrow category of obsessive, pre-pubescent girls between the ages of 9-15, fainting in their presence and tackling one another to receive a lock of their hair or simply just a glimpse of the singers/actors. This is false since many of Jonas Brothers fans have supported the JB as they personally graduated high school and started college.
(And for the record, we never did any of the stuff Jenni mentioned in her article when we became Jonas Brothers fans.)
When asked to explain why a fan supports the JB, many journalists will retort in a sarcastic or joking tone, “Because they are SO hot.” However, nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is, genuine Jonas Brothers fans such as my sister and I, do not just love the Jonas Brothers for their outward appearances. Instead, it is who they are as people: sweet, talented, intelligent and amazing individuals whose passion and profound love of music emanates from every fiber of their being.
So therefore, the Jonas Brothers are far from being stripped of their musical finesse and status as one of the most prominent boy bands of the music world today. In fact, they are just getting started in their new chapter of life as polished, mature and seasoned musicians and gentlemen. The sky is the limit. Fans like us will always be there to support them in their future endeavors and pursuits.
Get ready ladies and gentleman….2012 is the year of the Jonas Brothers!
