The Jonas Brothers Wear Purity Rings

The Jonas Brothers Wear Purity Rings

The Jonas Brothers all practice abstinence and wear purity rings to prove it. Here’s a snippet from the very lengthy article on the JoBros featured in Details Magazine:

“On a quiet Friday morning in a dressing room at Madison Square Garden, the Jonas Brothers hold out their hands to show off their purity rings. Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas—the teen-pop trio who stand, at this very moment, on the brink of hugeness—wear the metal bands on their fingers to symbolize, as Joe puts it, ‘promises to ourselves and to God that we’ll stay pure till marriage.’ Joe is 18. His ring is silver and adorned with a cross. ‘It actually ripped apart a little bit, just on the bottom, here, but I didn’t want to get a new one, because this one means so much to me,’ he says. Nick, who is 15, says, ‘I got mine made at Disney World. It’s pretty awesome.’ Kevin, at 20, is the oldest of the three, and while a punk-rock purity ring from Tiffany might represent the ultimate oxymoron, that’s exactly what he’s going for. His silver vow of abstinence is covered with studs. ‘It’s pretty rock and roll,’ Kevin says. ‘It’s getting banged up a little bit because of the guitar.’”

  • PURENESS

    You people bashing them are so stupid. Sex is not something you throw around, well I guess that’s what people made it out to be. If you have faith, then you might know. ANd it doesn’t mean that they are gay. Finally, guys that don’t “give in” to the popular choice…Gosh, I hope I find one of these one day. They are smart men, who are more mature than any other guy who just wants to whore around. Grow up people. God is number 1.

  • PURENESS

    AND DOING IT IN THE BUTT IS NOT WHAT THEY ARE DOING. THAT’S STILL SEX YOU IDIOTS

  • PURENESS

    Lindsay @ 02/22/2008 at 11:52 pm It’s not the abstinence part that sounds completely gay, it’s the rings! Who really needs a ring to prove virginity? I don’t know any guys that wear rings in the first place, unless they’re married. They should keep their private life to themselves, what do they want a pat on the back? Weirdo’s

    Why do you wear wedding rings? Its a symbol to show love between a man and a woman. This ring is a symbol of their pureness. Get a lifee.

    yea right

  • fidel castrate

    Pureness, you’re a dumb whore.

  • emma_leanne

    Go them! The Ten Commandments say that you should not commit adultry… therefore they are right! All of the kids in my family have purity rings also. Believe it or not there is still some abstience in our world and I would marry a 20 year old virgin simply because i am going to be one too. You can disrespect me but you’ll just be disrespecting God the Father…
    Press on Jonas’ and set an example..

  • vodkagirl

    mary, please. the fact that they are publicizing how ‘pure’ they are is a goat n pony show to cover up how pure they are not. didn’t one of them get blown by Miley right before their New Year’s concert? whatever.

  • http://justjared hghf

    I wear a ring to its really cool because i get asked why i waer one and those people normaly get one too! and i can share the word of my Savior.God.

  • Ignorant people

    @ Vodkagirl: None of the Jonas brothers got blown by Miley. If you knew, the article was in a fictional article website. It said on the bottom that this was completely fake. =|

    @ Fidel Castrate: Haha shows what you know about the Jonas Brothers. They play their own instruments AND they sing live. I’m sorry you’ve never heard them at a concert to know that they do that. The only reason why they do lipsynch is if it’s at a Parade when you can’t have your band on the little floats. Dumbass.
    If you don’t even know what you’re talking about, shut up.

  • caden jay

    they are perfect and they will keep this promise that they had LONG befor they were big stars…

  • Pfft

    *looooool*
    Yeah, Britney said that too at the beginning of her career – now we see her naked privates every other day.
    I rather have sex but keep my privates private, thank you very much.

    We’ve seen this sh** before, so over it. I’m waiting for one to announce their homosexuality.

  • Molly

    This “sudden” media blitz about the Jonas Brothers and their prurity rings is CRAZY! These guys have been asked about their rings for at least a couple of years (since they started being interviewed) and they’ve always given the same simple and concise explanation!! They’ve never made a big deal of it – any discussion about the rings and their committment has been in response to an interview question. Now, all of the sudden it’s a major news topic. This is NOT news to their long-time fans…. it is just one more thing that makes these guys special, has made their fans love them more, and has positively influenced an entire generation of teens As a parent, I couldn’t be happier that my teen dtr. loves these guys & their music and feels that they share her (AND MANY OTHERS) values and morals. I applaud all the young people today who make the choice to remain remain pure until marriage- it is not easy with the constant barrage of maintream media garbage, as well as comments such as many of the ones here that degrade and tear down. God bless the Jonas family, as well as all the young people out there who are striving to live a happy, clean, productive life!!
    And reporters – get your facts straight before you print your articles :)

  • Rebecca, 17, Canada

    If there were three superhero brothers with the united power to be the ultimate role model for young people today, their names would be Kevin, Joseph and Nicholas Jonas.

    Through the spotlight they have been faithful to God, and I would like not only to commend them but also to thank them for remaining steadfast in His ways. They create a positive influence and inspire fans through their music, style and attitude.

    Kevin, Joe and Nick, you and your family are in my prayers! God Bless!!!

  • ???

    o shiit gayy
    they’re probably to busy hving sex with guys.
    fuckidng gayy
    stop being so conceited with yourselves

  • Janine

    GAY GAY GAY GAY! No straight guys would wear the clothes they wear, and it’s easy to avoid sex with women when all you can think about is naked boys!

  • MZ

    I’m so happy you have promised that to god. Thank you. Also, I have promised myself I wouldn’t have sex before marriage and I also wear apurity ring. Love ya.

  • Oh gosh.

    Okay, so kudos for the whole not-having-sex thing, but they make it sound like everyone who DOES have sex is some kind of immoral demon. I totally think that it’s fine to give young kids some type of “good role model,” but I’m a role model for kids, too. The difference between us is that I don’t discuss my sex life with my students. Honestly, you can be a good role model without making it public that you think sex is “bad.” Like I said, good job with the waiting, but I have to admit–they seem to imply that having sex before marriage makes someone “dirty,” and that offends me.

  • flingal

    what fags!!! They’re gonna be married to men so what they’re doing wont be considered “TRUE” sex anyway. Two halves don’t make a whole without a hole.

  • BADI

    I LOVE JOE JONAS!!!!!!!

  • mich

    THAT’S TOTALLY AWESOME !! , i should do that too :)

  • DAny**

    Hola chicos! I’m from Argentina, but i know english…
    I think the Jo Bros. wear purity rings because they want to, that’s not BAD! U r not them, so u can do whatever u want, they made a promisse (they can’t brake it) it’s their decicion, that doesn’t means they r GAYS, they r NOT GAYS!

    LUV YA!!

    NICK J I LUV U♥♥!!

    DANY, ARG!♥

  • Brit_jonas

    I think that u all who dont believe in the purity rings are just jealous. Don’t criticize them for their beliefs.. I am the same age as Joe and we both have the same rings. I think that it is really romantic..

    So i think that them having the rings are not just selling money.. it is really true and you all just need to back off them!

  • …..

    i think its pretty sad how people are all blah blah blah about them not having sex.youd think people would be proud of them.i no i am.going out in public and saying that couldnt have been the easiest thing alive but they are good examples.and no matter what any of you say nothing will change them.have you seen them do anything extremly bad?NO..my point..they are amazing guys and if you people werent so freakin stupid you would see that.They live for the lord and follow what he wants and thats all that matters.i just cant wait till they prove you wrong then we will see who is the one laughing..i bet none of them would be saying this kind of stuff to you in the first place.
    so stop trying to start crap and get a life.

    STAY STRONG BOYS!
    your amazing guys.

    its pretty bad when a 15 year old said all of this..
    YOU IMMATURE PEOPLE!

    kids these days are smarter then adults…

  • Miley

    oh
    it’s so cute
    nick is so, I dont know, deeper

  • Becka

    I think its really sweet that there saving themselfs for that one certain person i find it really amasing they’ve all gone as long as they have and now that there bigger then before its really amasing to see someone so devoted. I am 18 and i think its been kinda hard to go this long without wondering or anything like that cause sex is everywhere you look these days but i’m really proud of them for holding it out and when it does happen its gonna be alot more meaningful then just sleeping with someone and ending up regretting it. I’m really proud they’ve held out. and yes i myself wear a purity ring it was personally made to match Kevins

  • Aya

    how do you practice absitence?
    anyways,
    i think it’s hot that they wear purity rings. they’re changing the world.

  • sabhat

    didnt read them all, but 16 17 and 26 are right..wtf purity ring in this day and age? bullshit.

    and who the fuck wants to have sex with a whatever-age-he-gets-married virgin?

  • KrysRae

    isn’t saying “oh my God” a little bit contradictory of the purpose?

  • Jessica

    I think the Jonas Brothers are very smart and mature. I strongly believe that they will follow through with their promise. I am so glad to see them promote being abstinent and not promoting sexuality like many others stars on tv.I am 14 and I have also made a promise to God and myself that I will stay pure until marrige and I WILL keep that promise. The society today is filling peoples heads with nonsense and saying its alright to have sex before marrige but its not, thats why many peoples marriges have fallen apart. People need to really think of the consiquences of their actions.

    I LOVE THE JONAS BROTHERS!!! <33

  • http://Bebo Mikki

    PURENESS,

    Their Christians durr. Being part of that religion, is showing that their keeping a promise to not have sex untill marriage. Its like forgeing off Those who craze over sex. They wear their rings to prove they’ll keep their promise, and stay pure untill they find the right one to share their entire life with. so Boo on you PURENESS and, those who thought the same as her/him.

    fakes,

    haha Apparently every disney star is fake. People had thought from hilary to miley, and now the jonas brothers. Obvious miley is a fake though. so Boo on you and those who thought the same as you.

  • http://Bebo Mikki

    Oh and to people who will reply to my comment then HAHA talk as much as you want! I will never reply! hahaha :D I have better things to do than to sit here and talk to losers with no life.

  • Queef quifington

    wow im really sure that a 20 year old pop star guy has never had sex. that ring is a frickin publicity stunt. the other 2 have probably had sex also

  • Brita

    I have a purity ring too. I am very proud of it and so is God! Staying pure until you are married is a wounderful thing. :)

  • Brita

    I have a purity ring too. I am very proud of it and so is God! Staying pure until you are married is a wounderful thing. :-)

  • againstmost

    i don’t understand why people wear them?
    i flimsy piece of silver is not going to stop you from having sex, i love the jonas brothers like seriously love them but i do agree with one of the posters that they are using the hole purity thing as a publicity stunt to gain popularity among not only misguided youth but the parents who dont want their kids listening to that “nasty rock music”.

    sorry about the no fullstops, i got carried away.
    LOVE THE JBS

  • againstmost

    ok i was going to leave this out, but after reading some other posts i couldnt help myself.

    i think it is totally fine that the jb’s are chosing to remain “pure”, but all of you people out there who are saying that if you have sex out of wedlock you are going to have bad marriages and your going to get diseases.
    what is wrong with you? people IN marriages that have been pure up until the marriage have still have divorces, still get STI’s and ultimately get depressed because their religion forbids them to leave their spouses.

    so yeah i just had to say that, i don’t expect anyone to agree or even read this but if someone does hopefully the message gets through that is totally fine to have sex before marriage and its fine to believe in abstinence.
