Joe Jonas: Goodbye, Hollywood Records

Joe Jonas: Goodbye, Hollywood Records

Joe Jonas heads out on the red carpet for Tao Beach’s Season Opening at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday (May 5).

THR just announced that the Jonas Brothers and Hollywood Records have parted ways.

“This was a decision that we made as a group,” Nick Jonas shared. “Naturally, as with any partnership, when you do part ways, there is emotion tied to it. We’ve been blessed to have a lot of success with Hollywood and with Disney, but speaking on behalf of my brothers [Joe and Kevin] and our team, we’re all looking forward to this next chapter. We’re ready for that next step as a group, and being able to take our work with us was so important.”

He added, “In these past three years, my brothers and I have not released a record, but we’ve really come into our own as men. And we’ve also lived life, which is an important part to making a record. I’ve got a studio set up in my apartment in New York where we can all put down our ideas. It’s a really liberating feeling to just be able to create and write whatever is on our hearts.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about this news? Are you shocked or was this expected?

  • jade

    yay now they left that disney shit they can make the music they always wanted. cant wait for #JB2012 :)

  • sophie

    cant wait to her their new stuff :D

  • ozzie

    i hope they don’t feel pressured to keep their music so family friendly … it’s what has doomed young musical acts in the past … they have grown up and their music should reflect that but i am sure it won’t.

    This news was out a week ago, so no i’m not shocked lol ;)
    Can’t wait to hear their new music, I’ve been waiting for a new album since last year, but then joes came out this year which made me happy! JONAS BROTHERS 2012 <3

  • katta

    aw my Joe!! He’s so fine and gorgeous!!
    WHAT DO YOU THINK about this news? is the best decision for him and for the group. I’m a only a Joe fan… but i like JB too.

  • isabella

    Can´t wait for it it´s going to be amazing! love you Joe!

    Maybe they will go indie like Hanson did when they left Island/Def Jam in 2001. It worked great for them and they are still one of largest indie Bands around when it comes to sales and concerts. An Indie Jonas free of Corporate Record labels telling them what to do would be awesome! We will finally see Jonas at their very best without any rules making the music they always wanted to make!

  • Natalie

    Their career is over! These guys are not The Stones, Dylan or Springsteen, or REM, or U2. Boy bands have very short careers.

  • Marielle

    Good for them. When they make their new music I’ll support them. I can’t wait for their tour whenever that is.

  • Michael

    I’m sad.

  • fatima

    this makes me real sad.. im 19 and i love the jonas brothers.. and i loved them more because they were disney.. and now i love them less because their not :( im so sad right now.. we’ve been waiting so patiently for them to come back together for three whole years.. nicks solo project came and it was amazeballs.. joes was a shamble.. im sorry to you joe jonas fans.. i love him to bits.. but that record was so bad… and now theyre not even disney.. :( so so so sad! But hopefully the music will be goooood and our brothers will be back touring soon :D xx
    PS I LOVE THEIR NEW LOGO.. very cool

    wtf were you expecting when they grew up? To be in their 20s singing “Its a Small World” and the Greatest Hits of disney? It sounds like you are the one who needs to grow up and catch up to them! They’re adults who drink, have sex, and want to sing about adult things now. Britney did it. Justin did it (Timberlake), its called becoming men!
