Nick Jonas rose to fame with his brothers in their band on a Disney series called Jonas (Picture: Getty)Nick Jonas is glad the stigma of working with Disney has gone and he now believes it’s a brilliant platform for rising stars.
The singer, 28, rose to fame with his brothers Kevin and Joe thanks to their appearance on the Disney Channel in their own show Jonas and in movies such as Camp Rock and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.
While he admits working with the entertainment company had a stigma in their day, he says it can help performers reach superstar status.
Joe told GQ: ‘I don’t think working with [Disney] has the stigma that it did in our day, thankfully. I think it’s wonderful what’s happening with Olivia Rodrigo and others who have been launched on programs that are targeted towards teenagers but are still being taken seriously.
‘I think one of the biggest misconceptions about [the Jonas Brothers] in the early days was that, first of all, it was manufactured, which is just impossible because, well, we’re brothers.
‘The second was that the music we released as the Jonas Brothers was manufactured in some ways. It truly wasn’t.’

‘A collab would be awesome.’
