Joseph Adam "Joe" Jonas (born August 15, 1989) shares the lead singer role with his younger brother Nick of the Jonas Brothers, a boy band made up of him and his two brothers, Nick and Kevin.

Acting career

On August 17, 2007, Joe, along with his brothers, guest starred in an episode of Hannah Montana. The episode debuted alongside High School Musical 2 and a sneak peek of the new Disney Channel show Phineas and Ferb.[1] The episode broke basic cable records with a record 10.7 million viewers and became basic cable's most watched series telecast ever.[2]

Joe and his brothers, filmed a Disney Channel Original Movie called Camp Rock where they play a band called "Connect Three." Joe plays the lead male role and lead singer "Shane Gray"; Nick plays the role of "Nate," a guitarist; and Kevin plays the role of "Jason," also a guitarist. The film's soundtrack was released on June 17, 2008.

The Disney Channel reality short series, Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream, premiered on Disney Channel on May 16, 2008. The show, which will tentatively run until September 5, 2008, documents the brothers' lives on the Look Me In The Eyes Tour, the name was inspired by the band's hit song "When You Look Me in the Eyes".

Joe, along with his three brothers Kevin, Nick and Frankie will also be starring in their own Disney Channel Original Series entitled, J.O.N.A.S., which they are currently filming.[citation needed]

Personal life

In 2006, Jonas dated AJ Michalka of pop-duo Aly & AJ, as confirmed by Michalka on her MySpace blog.[3]

In 2008, Jonas was in a high-profile relationship with country pop singer Taylor Swift. On November 11, 2008, in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Swift claimed that Jonas broke up with her in a 27-second phone call.[4] In explanation, Jonas wrote on his MySpace blog (in a post that has since been removed): "I called to discuss feelings with the other person, and obviously these feelings were not well received. I did not end the phone call. Someone else ended it for me. Phone calls only last as long as the person on the other end is willing to talk." Furthermore, Jonas says that he has tried to call her since the breakup, in an attempt at reconciliation, but received no response.[5][6] During the same interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Swift revealed that the heartbreak song "Forever & Always" on her album Fearless, recorded in late September/early October 2008,[7] was inspired by Jonas. Ironically, Swift and Jonas had appeared together on Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve 2009 on December 31, 2008 in Times Square moments before the times square ball dropped.
