Jonas Brothers Try To Capture the British Teen Scene!

3 Jul

Following the footsteps of fellow Disney friend Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers are now trying their luck to break into the British market when they launch their first U.K. single as the trio relies not only on their musicality, but also on their clean and so far scandal-free rep to win the hearts of British children and parents.

The band from Wyckoff, New Jersey, wear purity rings to signal their abstinence from sex until marriage.  The trio – Nick, 16, Joe, 18, and Kevin, 20 – started wearing the rings when their parents, who follow the band around the world and watch every performance, asked them if they wanted to.  They just finished a sell-out arena tour of Britain and released their single “SOS,” which, experts believe, is expected to climb atop the U.K. charts any day now.

Despite their bow of abstinence, the siblings said they are not in any way immune to the charms of the female British fans.  Frontman Joe said British girls are “hot” and their accent is “very cute.” They also mention loving the food in the U.K.

Needless to say, the top dogs over at Disney hope the Jonas Brothers maintain their clean-cut image.  Cyrus, whose Vanity Fair pictures showed her with her bare back exposed and only a bed sheet covering her front, was practically forced to issue an apology after parents of her mostly young fan base expressed outrage at the revealing photos.

The siblings first went to the U.K. in April for a performance at Islington Academy, and then in May with Avril Lavigne for a series of performances across Europe.  Their self-titled album, which has sold more than a million copies in the U.S., will be released in a few days while their movie Disney’s Camp Rock will debut in the U.K. this September.

We can’t get ENOUGH of JB! 🙂

    That would be sweet to go see Avril Lavigne in concert in Beijing China. Her tour date says it’s October 6th. After watching the olympics, I really want to visit Beijing now.
