“It’s been challenging to find any time on that front,” Jonas tells Los Angeles Confidential in their latest issue. “But it’s also a choice I made to just have this season of my life be solo, so that I can make the most of all I’m trying to accomplish. I’ve got plenty of time, at 24. I mean I hope I have plenty of time!”
When it comes to the other close relationships in his life – his brothers – Jonas says since the Jonas Brothers went their separate ways professionally in 2013 things have never been better between them.
“[It was] the best thing that ever happened to us. It has allowed for us to just be family,” Jonas says. “Joe and I live together in LA. We have a home there together – we’re very, very close. My brother Kevin and his wife have a baby and another one on the way. He’s now into his next step, which is in the tech world, which is really amazing. It’s all a really healthy change.”
Jonas, who has indeed been making the most of his solo time – his album Last Year Was Complicated was inspired by his split from Culpo and he’s currently filming the action adventure film Jumanji – says he is also counting his blessings for the music and acting career he’s made for himself since the band’s break-up.
“I was on a rocket ship to the moon with my brothers as part of a teen phenomenon,” he says. “And to come back and solidify an adult career with real confidence in myself and pride in my work, I think I’ve now been able to see things a little bit differently. And that really does shape who you become as a person, the way you see the world … and the way you treat other human beings.”
