Nick Jonas On Diabetes: 'it Has An Effect On My Creative Life'

Nick Jonas On Diabetes: 'it Has An Effect On My Creative Life'

At 13 years old, Nick Jonas was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. A member of a boy band at the time, Jonas immediately started using his fame to shine a light on the disease. Most notably, the Jonas Brothers’ 2008 song “A Little Bit Longer” touches on his years of struggling with the disease, and empowers those diagnosed with diabetes not to feel defeated. “‘A Little Bit Longer’ was a song I was really happy to write,” Jonas, now 22, tells EW. “Probably in a lot of ways, it’s been therapeutic for me.” And even though he’s on his own now, Jonas says his fight with diabetes continues to inspire his music. “It’s really shaped who I am as a person,” the “Jealous” singer says. “It has an effect on my creative life, the way I approach writing songs and doing all that.” While sharing his struggles with diabetes publicly was a risk, Jonas has become a role model to young fans who suffer similarly. And the fans have become a source of strength for Jonas. “I’ve heard from a lot of fans over time that have actually encouraged me and lifted me up in moments when I was feeling down about it,” Jonas says. “That’s the beauty of building a community and trying to be transparent about something—you find strength in numbers, the people who lift you up when you need it. “I didn’t know that sharing my story could help people, and it did.” Not only does his journey empower others, but Jonas recently had the opportunity to help a young fan in need. “I was recently on a golf course by myself and this kid and his little brother came up, they were probably 10 and 12,” he recalls. “The kid was freaking out about something, trying to call his parents and I had a gut feeling it had something to do with diabetes. I asked what was going on, Continue reading >>

Introducing The Jonas Brothers

Introducing The Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are a US boy band who have taken the States by storm, and are now on a mission to take over the UK music scene too. The brothers in question are Nick, 15, and his older brothers Joe, 18, and Kevin, 20. It's Nick who is of particular interest to My Life as he has Type 1 diabetes. What does Nick do? Nick sings vocals and plays guitar and drums for the band. He was diagnosed in 2005 when he was 14, but it was during a US performance in the spring of 2007 that he told the world about his condition. Raise your hands After the opening song, he asked for a show of hands of people in the audience with diabetes. He then raised his own hand toacknowledge, for the first time in public, that he has diabetes. Nick mentions how one particular warning sign – moodiness – was especially difficult to deal with because he and the band were on tour at the time. "I had a terrible attitude, which was totally odd for me because I'm actually a nice person. Being on the road around people all the time, you have to keep that positive attitude going. And it was hard." Early frustrations To begin with, he treated himself with multiple injections and was testing about 12 times a day – but the regime didn't fit well with life as a musician: "When we were on the road, I'd be in the back trying to give insulin shots and manage my diabetes, and it was just too hard. I was getting frustrated. I knew that I needed something different." His 'something different' turned out to be a new type ofinsulin pump, called the OmniPod Insulin Management System. It's slightly different to conventional insulin pumps that typically sit on a belt around the waist and deliver insulin via tubing running from the pump to the cannula (a very thin and flexible plastic tube that is inserted under the Continue reading >>

Miley's '7 Things' Is About Nick Jonas, Says Director

Miley's '7 Things' Is About Nick Jonas, Says Director

Miley's '7 Things' Is About Nick Jonas, Says Director Miley's '7 Things' Is About Nick Jonas, Says Director Despite its peppy beat and catchy pop hook, Miley Cyrus s 7 Things was inspired by heartache. Sample lyric: Your friends, theyre jerks/ When you act like them, just know it hurts. And that s just one of the seven things she hates about her unnamed ex. So whos the guy? Brett Ratner, who directed the video, revealed to MTV that prior to solidifying the videos concept, he visited the singers house and was shown all of her personal items from under her bed that her ex-boyfriend gave her. (Among the mementos: Dirty socks and a bunch of photographs.) And although he never mentioned Cyruss most famous ex, Nick Jonas, by name the director does drop one major hint. The necklace shes wearing in the video is the necklace [the boy] gave her, Ratner told MTV. Shes wearing his diabetes or medical necklace. (Jonas who split with Cyrus in late 2007 after two years of dating has Type 1 diabetes and is a spokesperson for awareness of the disease.) Back in July, Jonas insisted that the song couldnt be about him. My friends arent jerks, he told E!s The Daily Ten. For her part, the 15-year-old Cyrus recently told MTV that much of her record is about past relationships. Most of my songs are for the girls who hate their current or ex-boyfriends, she explained. You can tell by the lyrics that theyre very personal, Ratner added. The stuff she talks about in the video is clever and emotional and fun at the same time. Continue reading >>

A Little Bit Longer (song)

A Little Bit Longer (song)

"A Little Bit Longer" is a song by the Jonas Brothers, written and sung by Nick Jonas. The song was released as single from their third studio album of the same name. Background and composition[edit] "A Little Bit Longer" A 20 second sample of "A Little Bit Longer" by Jonas Brothers, where a portion of the chorus is heard. Problems playing this file? See media help. The title of the album, "A Little Bit Longer", comes from their song of the same name, which Nick Jonas wrote about his feelings with having type 1 diabetes.[2] Nick explained his motivations for writing the "life song" about his battle with type 1 diabetes at a press conference Wednesday morning (August 6). "I had a day when my sugar was out of range, and I sat down at the piano and wrote it in 20 minutes," he said. "And it was because I had this strong inspiration. A lot of people have told me it's inspiring."[3] In their book Burning Up, Nick said that he wrote a song about diabetes called "A Little Bit Longer": "I was in Canada shooting Camp Rock, and I was having one of those days where my blood sugar was a little bit out of control. I walked into a banquet room at the hotel where we were staying and saw a baby grand piano. Nobody was in there, so I sat down and began to play. Fifteen minutes later I called everybody into the room to come listen to the song. They all loved it. It was a really great feeling, because I had been feeling so down."[4] Other uses[edit] A live version of the song was used in 2008 as a B-side of their single "Burnin' Up".[5][6] The song was included on their 2009 EP iTunes Live from SoHo.[7] The live version of the song played at SoHo was also featured on the "Fly with Me" EP.[8] On May 11, 2010 the song formed part of a medley with the song "Black Keys" on the live album Nick Continue reading >>

Best Jonas Brothers Songs: Burnin Up & More Of The Faves Hollywood Life

Best Jonas Brothers Songs: Burnin Up & More Of The Faves Hollywood Life

Yes, Nick and Joe are still killing the music game, but lets take it back to the true glory days for a sec. Without further ado, here is The Definitive Ranking Of Jonas Brothers Songs. Obsessive Jonas Disorder is a serious disease that never really goes away, mostly because you keep stumbling upon lists like these.The upstate New York date on the Jonas BrothersBurnin Up Tour was pretty much my first real concert.Taylor Swift, who was dating Joe Jonasat the time, watched the show from the sound booth one row behind me. It was a special time and12-year-old me was forever changed after that fateful day. Below, Ive fondly ranked the JoBros best hits. One of the last songs we got to hear from the trio before they split. Its not terrible, its just kind of boring. Most ridiculous lyric: Let your heart control your mind/Make it feel like the first time. Remember the soundtrack to Jonas L.A., the JoBros Disney Channel show? Me neither. Also, Nicks rap break isrough. Bring back Big Rob, am I right? (More on that later.) Most ridiculous lyric: A star shines but your light is the brightest. The second best song on the Camp Rock soundtrack after This Is Me, obviously. Most ridiculous lyric:Hand clapping, hip shaking, heart breaking/Theres no faking. One of the first songs that put the JoBros on the map, but I found it pretty annoying both then and now. Most ridiculous lyric:Lets go dancing/Pop and lock/Battle dance against Hanson. The song we all hated to love. Nicks famous in-concert speech about being diagnosed with diabetes felt like pandering even to 12-year-old me. Most ridiculous lyric: Got the news today/Doctors said I had to stay/A little bit longer and Ill be fine. Joe iconically shades his ex Taylor Swift in this song. Too bad the album has such a dumb name. I wont even p Continue reading >>

Nick Jonas Puts Spotlight On Diabetes

Nick Jonas Puts Spotlight On Diabetes

Cause Celeb highlights a celebrity’s work on behalf of a specific cause. This week, we speak with singer-songwriter and actor Nick Jonas, of the pop-rock band The Jonas Brothers, about his efforts to raise awareness of juvenile diabetes. Through his work with his organization, Nicks Simple Wins, Jonas inspires children with diabetes to pursue their dreams while coping with their disease, as he has done with his Type 1 diabetes. Jonas has traveled to Washington to testify before a Senate committee about the need to raise money for juvenile diabetes. In addition, he has created public service announcements and commercials to spread awareness about his cause. Jonas has also designed dog tags for people with diabetes and their supporters. The tags include a “medic alert.” Jonas has become a spokesperson for the Bayer CONTOUR meter, a device that measures how blood-sugar levels. He wrote the lyrics to the song “A Little Big Longer” about his experience living with diabetes. Through Nick Simple Wins, children ages 6 to 18 document their everyday experiences in the Express Your Simple Win Contest, which ended Sept. 20 Entrants can keep checking NickSimpleWins.com for the announcement of the winners of the grand prize — meeting Jonas in person. Nick also advocates for Change For The Children, an organization that he and his brothers started to empower children to face obstacles with self-assurance. Question: Could you tell me a little about Nick’s Simple Wins and what your role with it is? Jonas: Nick’s Simple Wins is basically the campaign with Bayer Diabetes Care, to create awareness around diabetes and also give the kind of the messaging that people can relate with. This one really stuck because when I was talking to them about my day-to-day life with diabete Continue reading >>

Nick Jonas Raises The Bar (& Temperature) With 'find You'

Nick Jonas Raises The Bar (& Temperature) With 'find You'

Nick Jonas raises the bar (& temperature) with 'Find You' Young Nicholas (Jonas, that is) has graced us with two songs in one summer. What a beautiful world we live in. Find You dropped as a single last Thursday on Beats 1 Radio (and is now available to stream and download on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music for your listening pleasure), but the hype started five days prior. Jonas took to his blue-checked various social media outlets on Monday and posted the scene of a desert. We get it Nick, you wanted us to feel like we were in a mirage. Jonas - 1, high-key obsessed 57" fangirl club - 0. He continued to serve up teasers throughout the week, one photo kicking some sand here, a tweet of the real McDreamy staring off into the desolate sunset there. What a babe. An aura of mystery entered his Instagram aesthetic before announcing a Sept. 14 release date of Find You, but the mild frustration, killer anticipation and mild scares that the single could be his first acoustic piece (How dare he let us think we could not hear our little angel of music?) was definitely worth it. Need a cheap lunch option on Franklin Street? We're here to help Find You is definitely less of a jam and more of a vibe song. It has signature suspended guitar presence that makes every NJ future wifey swoon. And Id be a fake fan if I didnt mention fetus Nicholas comparisons, now wouldnt I? The nonchalantly desperate piece definitely caused some Throwback Thursday moments. Nicks tone reminded me of the easygoing ambiance of Much Better from the JoBros 2009 album "Lines, Vines and Trying Times" (Can we all just take a moment to picture curly-haired post-Camp Rock Joe for a hot second?) and even hinted around sounds of Nicks 2008 solo A Little Bit Longer (You Don't Even Know) (Type 1-diabetic Continue reading >>

Nick Jonas | My Hero

Nick Jonas | My Hero

"It doesn't matter if the world is pulling you down, with Christ, you have everything!" Everyone has a different definition of what they call a hero. To me, a hero means someone you can look up to and rely on in a time of need. I call Nick Jonas my hero because no matter what he does, he does not let any obstacles slow him down. Having diabetes has allowed him to be a role model for young kids living with diabetes. Even though I do not have diabetes myself, listening to his music and being able to relate to his lyrics helps get me through my bad days. On days when I feel my lowest listening to his music helps me cope. Nick Jonas was born on September 16th, 1992 in Dallas, Texas. As a child, Nick's dream was to have a career in music. At a young age he would perform shows to his family saying, "I have to practice, I'm going to be on Broadway." At the age of 7 Nick began landing roles in Broadway musicals like Beauty and The Beast, Les Miserables, and Annie Get Your Gun. After performing on Broadway, Nick was discovered by Columbia Records and began writing songs with his dad and recording his first solo cd. Although his solo project was unreleased, his songs were played on Top 40 Christian radio stations for quite some time. After little success, Columbia heard Nick and his brothers perform together. Soon after, The Jonas Brothers were signed as a group project. Their first cd titled, "It's About Time" was not as great of a success as they had thought it would be. After being discovered by Disney, they were offered a recording contract with Hollywood Records, and right away got started on their self titled cd. It was released to the public on August 7th, 2007, and by December 20th, 2007, their self titled record had gone platinum. Unfortunately, after all their success, Continue reading >>

I think this is one of the most meaningful and best songs ever because Nick is singing a song about his diabetes but what amazes me is that he did not let it stop him from living his current blessed life. My grandpa died of a type of sickness when I was only 4 years old and I get flashbacks now and then about him. The point is that just because tou have a type of sickness doesn't mean it should stop you from living your dream which is why Nick Jonas inspires me. I had gone to one of their concerts and Nick sang the same inspiring song and was like 'God bless Nick Jonas and every kid that is suffering of any type of sickness. 'Just to let you know I am a huge jonas broothers fan! Anyways god bless everyone in this world. I think its one of the most amazing songs it tells how some people not only nick feel this way and that they are told to wait while those people are suffering inside we just want more fun and we don't appreciate all we have its hard to go threough something like that I know I have a tumor but I'm good now it went away and in that time I felt like he does sometimes you just have to Continue reading >>

A Little Bit Longer By Jonas Brothers

A Little Bit Longer By Jonas Brothers

Nick Jonas has Type 1 diabetes, which can make him irritated and put him in a bad mood. This song deals his struggle with the disease - he wrote it in the empty ballroom of a hotel when he was having a rough day. According to Entertainment Weekly, Nick Jonas wrote this song in about 20 minutes while shooting the movie Camp Rock. Kevin Jonas said: "Sometimes songs take weeks, but for us, some of the songs we love the most are the ones that only take 20 minutes." In the same week that the A Little Bit Longer album entered the Billboard 200 at #1, the Jonas Brothers self-titled 2007 debut returned to the chart's Top 10. This meant that the threesome became the first group to have two simultaneous top 10 albums since *NSYNC's self-titled set was #2 and Home for Christmas The brothers could claim to have had a third set in the Top 10 as they featured on the #8 charting soundtrack to the Disney film Camp Rock. The album's chart-topping success also meant that they became the first trio of brothers to top the tally since the Bee Gees Greatest was #1 in January 1980. This debuted on the Hot 100 at #11, then dropped out of the chart in the following week. In doing so it broke the record for the highest entry on the tally not to notch a second chart week. In March 2014 Soko's "We Might Be Dead by Tomorrow" plummeted from an even higher position when it debuted at #9, only to drop out of the Hot 100 the following week. Continue reading >>

Was thinking today at work (think/work!!!) what songs best some up being diabetic. Music is the language of emotion and it doesn't have to just be lyrics, the sound and the feel are just as emotive. Having d can be emotional at the best of times and music definately helps me deal with things and roll with the punches. So heres mine. (Sorry to my cousins accross the pond if you've never heard of some of the artists) 5.Manic Street Preachers-Roses in the hospital. 2) The New Pornographers - The Body Says No 4) Guided By Voices - I'll Replace You With Machines ....it is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretenses of your civilisation which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced. In that intolerable conflict you lose all joy of life and all feeling of personality, because at every moment they suppress and restrain and check free play of your powers. That is the poisoned and mortal wound of the civilised world" Well My 11 yo daughter would have to say.. A Little Bit Longer by Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers.. he wrote it about having type 1 .
