It's About Time We Show Kevin Jonas More Love
Since the Jonas Brothers first rose to fame in 2006, Joe and Nick were both positioned as the frontmen of the group, singing lead on the majority of the songs and taking centre stage at shows. As a result, Kevin had less of a spotlight. I'll admit it: I was a hardcore Nick fan growing up, but since the Jonas Brothers reunited, I've seen a completely different side of Kevin. He seems more confident and outspoken, and — let's state the obvious here — he looks amazing. I've slowly been jumping onboard the Team Kevin train this year, but now after watching the Jonas Brothers documentary, Chasing Happiness, I'm officially all in.
"That might have been the hardest moment in my entire life," Kevin says through tears, as I tried to hold back my own.
Not only does the film — which dropped on Amazon on June 4 — recount the group's rise to fame, but it also discusses their fallout as brothers after their 2013 breakup. In one scene, Kevin opens up about the time Joe and Nick did a radio music festival without him shortly after the Jonas Brothers broke up — and, whew, it's a lot. Although Nick and Joe assured Kevin that he didn't need to attend because they wouldn't be playing Jonas Brothers songs, Kevin explains that the entire set ended up being their biggest hits; even the Jonas Brothers band was there! "I think that might have been the hardest moment in my entire life," Kevin says through tears, as I tried to hold back my own.
Things really come out in the open when the brothers play a drinking game and answer each other's most burning questions. When Kevin asks why his brothers did a show without him, Joe gets brutally honest. "We felt like you were holding us back," Joe says bluntly, explaining that after Kevin got married, they felt like he started to put his family before the band (is that really a bad thing, though?). Following the intense moment, Kevin tells the camera that he's always felt like the odd man out in the band and still gets confused for Nick and Joe to this day. Sorry, but a true Jonas Brothers fan would never.
Not only is the scene incredibly heartbreaking, but it really made me see Kevin in a whole new light. As the brothers get ready to go on this new journey together, it's time Kevin gets his rightful chance to shine. Here are just a few reasons why I'm officially team Kevin (and you should be, too).
