Nick Jonas will speak at a National Press Club luncheon on August 24 at 1 PM to discuss his personal experiences living with and managing juvenile diabetes and his efforts to inspire youth dealing with diabetes.
Since being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 13, Nick tests his blood sugar more than ten times a day and has made a personal commitment to raise awareness about juvenile diabetes.
Kevin & Joe, Nick founded Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation to support programs that motivate children to face adversity. One of their causes is to raise money and awareness for various diabetes programs.
Kevin Jonas talked to Mercury News about his blossoming career how he's happy working in an arena full of screaming kids: 'I think that being part of it, witnessing it firsthand, is much better than working at Starbucks and just
getting by at college.'
Do you feel pressure of having so many people depending on you financially, from your road crew to Disney stockholders? 'We don't really feel pressure. We have a really great system in place and a great team in place that makes it fun everywhere we go.
We know it's a machine, we know it's a big business, and we don't really look
at it that way. We look at it as a great way for us to enjoy the art that we like
to make, and enjoy just the excitement of making new music.'
Ever want to break free from the corporate Disney shackles? 'We were a band way before we ever did anything with Disney. It's been great. The reason we love them is 'cause they let us be who we..
..are. They don't try to change us. They do not pressure us to be anything.
I think that's a common misconception and it's definitely not the way it is.'
From Desiree: Yesterday, my friend saw the Jonas Brothers walking to Jerry's Deli with their whole family still wearing the same outfit that they were wearing at the Ponyo premiere. They stopped to take pictures and shook their hands and were beyond nice. Video of JB @ the premiere under!
From Melissa: At the Ponyo premier the Jonas Brothers stopped by to greet some of their fans who waited outside to meet them. They were really nice. They took there time to meet every fan individually. They were being so nice and Joe was smiling even after his breakup with Camilla. He looked very happy.
Jonas Brothers @ Ponyo premiere at El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. From Jamie: They were kinda late, they came around 6:40 and Nick was turning to Joe and whispering stuff and they chuckled. They posed with Frankie and then left, they didn't come out to the fans sadly!
They went into the theatre itself at around 7:10 and Nick was the last one of them going in and he was pretty much attached to his cell phone, but put it away before they went in! Joe also seemed OK, he was smiling and seemed excited for Frankie!
From reader: 'I'm taking summer courses at UCLA & while I was eating lunch my friend ran in yelling.. 'JOE JONAS IS OUTSIDE!' I didn't believe him at first, but he showed me a picture of them together. Joe was running with his trainer. He was probably here because their Bel Air home is nearby.'
