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.’”

Damn! All the christian’s post on this tread are freaky! Why in the world are you associating virginity and respect together?

Stupid religious people….

I agree with some of you I was a big fan of britney spears back in the day and I remenber her sayin something about being virgin until marriage well now everybody knows(thanks to Justin) that it never happenned , so they should keep something like this private because they are gonna regret it later.

I am glad they aren’t afraid to stick by their convictions

#80, virginity is respecting your body. You’re not willing to risk getting diseases, and you won’t get someone pregnant. It shows that they have some self control and won’t just “hit it and quit it”. They won’t use someone for sex, or bring that into a complicated relationship.

Why would you say religious people are stupid? Because they’re not willing to sleep with everyone and get called a *****? Sex means different things to different people. It obviously doesn’t mean a lot to you, but to others it may. So try RESPECTING others in their choice to stay abstinent and supporting the fact that others are doing the same. Its their body, and let them do what they want with it.

Oh COME ON people.
Obviously most of you commenting here don’t even know the Jonas Brothers.
They have had their rings for 3-4 years.
And no, Disney did not ******* slap rings on their hands.
Their father is a pastor and they are very religious, so why can’t they stay abstinent?
I find it completely disgusting how girls (and guys) are losing their virginity in High school, and even in Middle School (fact), whoring around with basically anyone.
I am proud of the Jonas Brothers for being confident in themselves.

And also, why can’t they tell people they wear purity rings?
It’s not they yell in the street, “I WEAR A PURITY RING!”
They wear rings, and people will ask what they are.
So they answer. They’re not jerks and don’t say, “I rather not say”
Then more rumors will spread saying they’re married.

Some people on here are so immature, it sickens me.
Grow up!

If you don’t even like them, why are you even ******* posting on here?
You obviously don’t have a life.

PS. And why can’t you just respect their commitment?
You can’t compare them to Britney because her family was fcked up anyways.
The Jonas Brothers have a strong family background and will continue to be strong.
Geez, get your facts straight.

Yeah, this is really old news, BUT I also have a purity ring. I love the Jo Bros and how they stay so humble and down-to-earth. I totally agree with #24. And to #29, yes of course we wouldn’t – they’re not saying they’re not going to have sex. They’re saying they are going to wait until they’re ready and mature. There is a complete difference. No one nowadays is ready for sex under the age of 18. It’s ridiculous because the people that are having it young and before they are married are usually not so smart or educated people. They’re not thinking of risks or the consequences that could last a lifetime just by that one action. I am sure there are going to be comments left contradicting mine, and I’m ready – go at it. I just hope this speaks to some people and that they’ll actually think the next time their in a risky situation that could completely alter their lives.

Kevin is the 18 year old and Joe is the 20 year old you got it back ward

Young celebs shouldn’t broadcast things like that about themselves. Every time they get a girlfriend, people will only speculate if they’re still virgins or not.

totaly stupid more bush style bull poop

I think this is awesome.
I love them so much.
I’m glad theirs people out here that still care about themselves.

Totally ADORABLE!
i love them!

Yea, the purity thing worked out so well with Britney Spears. One of these kid is probably the father of little sis’.

They have said this countless amounts of time.

You guys are kind of late

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

so, the media barely finds about this NOW?

they been having their purity rings since they were like 13 or 14..
and this just makes ignorant people say pointless things when they don’t even know anything about their lives.

i love them and i love that they vowed to stay pure.
i wish there was more guys like this :]

JB fan for life..! <3

they are flaming gay

its good that hot boys think the same as me! I’m not having sex untill marrige i love the jonas brothers

why do people hate on them for this?
hello it suppost to be like that

For those of you ranking on them for not having sex…

The National College Health Assessment does report that an increasing number of college students aged 18-24 are choosing not to have sex due to the risk of sexually transmitted infections, such as the human papilloma virus (HPV) and HIV/AIDS.
The most effective form of protection against STIs (after no sex) is the male condom, which, even when used 100% correctly (which many people don’t do) has a failure rate of 7-15%.
Soo…you dont even have to bring religion into it. Many of today’s young adults are having sex with only one partner or not at all because of the very real health risks that come with having sex. Instead of insulting them or making fun of them, commend them on making a healthy choice- which any one of any religion can do.

87—uhhhh ANY jb fan knows joe is 18 and kevin is 20 duhhh
jared got it right

hahahha..jb haters are funny..i find it quite halarious how some people on here are bashing them for something GOOD..isnt sleeping around at 17 pretty bad anyways?..i mean these guys arnt ashamed in what they believe….so more power to my christian brothers…

I don’t like the jonas brothers music but overall I definitely respect them. I believe the same exact thing as them; to wait until marriage and I have tons of respect for people who want to do the same. especially in this day and age.

Umm, can I please ask a simple question here… whats wrong with being 18 or 20 and is still a virgin !? Seriously… so now being a virgin is a BAD thing ! What the f*ck is wrong with you people !? If a celebrity sex tape was out people would call them whores, ***** etc. and if they stay virgins they’d also make fun of them and say that its IMPOSSIBLE for a 18 yr. old and above to stay a virgin ! WHATS UP WITH YOU PEOPLE ? MAKE UP YOUR MINDS ALREADY !!! You guys are just acting like stupid immatures. If they promise to stay pure until marriage then GOOD FOR THEM ! You should actually encourage them since there arent alot of teenagers now-a-days who are like that. So shut up and respect what they’re doing… not bash them cause GUESS WHAT ? NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY !

Wow thats pretty cool. A lot of bands these days are all about selling sex and posting it all over their CDs….dont like them but thats still really awesome
