Nick Jonas is on the cover of free magazine Diabetes Focus: 'I was diagnosed at age 13 in November 2003. Although I had been having the usual symptoms, I lost weight, was always thirsty, had to go to the bathroom all the time and I was in a really, really bad mood all the time, I didn't know what it all meant..
I announced that I had diabetes at the Carnival for a Cure at Miami's prestigious Diabetes Research Institute. It seemed like the right time and place. I wanted to let kids know that the most important thing is to never ever let your yourself get down about having diabetes..
..because we can live a really great life as a kid with diabetes.. Kids would tell me how scared they were to tell their friends they had it, and how my going public really gave them the courage to do it. Thx Rosario!
We were so excited to visit this awesome city since it has such a great music community.
The reaction here was incredible.
The audience seemed very thankful that we chose to come here which was
so exciting for us.
We also heard that Cinema Score (a company that does exit polls as people leave theaters) gave our movie an A, which means that you, our fans, are loving the movie. That news made us feel so great since this film is for OUR FANS.
Thanks again for all the love and support.
Kevin, Joe and Nick.
CONFIRMED: The boys are currently in Las Vegas.
Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience grossed an estimated $12.7 million Friday-Sunday, failing to live up to the multi-media hype, and failing to unseat Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail as the No. 1 movie at the weekend box office, reports E! Online.
The band's movie not only didn't live up to initial projections, it didn't live up to downsized estimates following its underwhelming Friday debut. Box Office Mojo's Brandon Gray said, 'The Jonas Brothers did not live up to the hype.
They were treated like the second coming of the Beatles, and they're not.' Madea Goes to Jail remained on top with $16.5 million, per estimates. Oscar-winner Slumdog Millionaire ($12.2 million) was in third, and poised to pass JB3D should the concert film again fail to meet projections.
Kevin Jonas revealed his dream job to Access Hollywood: 'I wanted to work at Gap.Especially when those Gap jean jackets were madly in style and you didn't want to take 'em off. That was pretty awesome.'
Joe on screaming fans: 'You hear it so much that you get immune to the screaming. It's like, once you leave you're still hearing it and you're talking
really loud.. You never get sick of it because it's amazing.'

GRAPEVINE DRAMA: From Zach: The Jonas Brothers invaded Main Event in Grapevine, they were 45 minutes late and it was like a complete riot. From Mallorie: Me and my friends went to Main Event tonight in our hometown Grapevine, TX to see the Jonas Brothers.
When we got there tons of girls were lined up on a gate because the whole parking lot was blocked off. Everyone was told that JB was supposed to arrive around 10:30.. that was not true. Demi Lovato along with a few others..
..came through that way and took pictures and went inside. Me and my friends stood outside along with probably 100 others waiting for the boys to show up. Everyone waited and waited and still the boys never came.
Not to mention they sent out impersonators who pretended to be the boys. They never came outside to thank everyone. The boys left the dedicated fans outside in the cold and didn't even bother to come and thank us for supporting them.
From Jareli: The boys got there at 1:00 AM and apologized to us. They took pics with people who had access to the place. People who didn't got to see them too because they came by us twice. We don't know why they were late.
Jonas Brothers: The 3D Experience performed below expectations when grossing estimated $4.8 million Friday, reports E! Online. Their 'unspectacular opening day barely held off the Tyler Perry holdover Madea Goes to Jail for the No. 1 spot, and forced box-office analysts to revise their forecasts downward.
Where once a $30 million Friday-Sunday take was considered possible, if not likely, for Jonas Brothers. 'When you factor in the ticket prices, you are talking about a movie that's underpeforming.' JB3D's playing at 3D equipped & IMAX theaters, where tickets cost $15-18 each, about twice the national average.
Compared to last year's Miley Cyrus concert movie, which also played exclusively on 3D and IMAX screens, the Jonas Brothers' effort is looking especially lame. On its opening day, Miley's concert movie grossed nearly twice as much money [$8.7 million] on nearly half as many screens as the Jonases'.
From Alexa: ME AND MY FRIENDS BOUGHT TICKETS FOR THE ENTIRE DAY AT THE PORT CHESTER MOVIE THEATER TODAY BECAUSE THEY TOLD US JB WOULD BE THERE, LITTLE DID WE KNOW IT WAS A PRIVATE EVENT FOR 'A BUNCH OF RICH PEOPLE ONLY' (SAID THE EMPLOYEES). I FEEL ROBBED.
