News of the Jonas Brothers breakup is taking the nation by storm Wednesday after the threesome announced their reasons on ABC's "Good Morning America" for the split. USA Today reports a recap of what the interview entailed Oct. 30.
"It was time," said Kevin Jonas told Robin Roberts on "GMA."
Nick Jonas claimed responsibility for "initiating the conversation" on the Jonas Brothers breakup.
"We're family first, and that's always been our main priority," Nick said. "And so, honesty within that, within what we do as a group, was really important. So I came to the table with the guys just before we were prepping to leave for our tour and I shared my heart with them, my feelings."
Nick did most of the talking in the interview. He said all three of them have had "some complications in the group for a long time." They had difficult choices to make, but felt limited as individuals in the group. Nick said the Jonas Brothers breakup occurred after mulling over the decision a few days
The three brothers are ready to pursue their own creative passions and be "brothers first."
Joe Jonas said they tried keeping things the way there "for so long," that it started to "get stale" on them.
The brothers would disagree on factors about setting up a music video or issues with personal opportunities. In the end, they felt it was best to support each other more than anything else.
Kevin mentioned that their album would "not be completed but we will be doing something for our fans. They have traveled with us for so many years we did not want to leave without giving them back something. So we're going to release four of the songs. The rest of the album will never be released. Then we'll put the live tracks from the last summer tour – about 10 songs – we'll be giving that to fans, just as a gift."
Kevin said he's aware the Jonas Brothers breakup "is going to be sad for a lot of people, but for us, we are looking forward to the future."
