The Jonas Brothers’ new Paper magazine covershoot is all of our cringiest family portraits rolled into one.

Proving that these popstars don’t take themselves too seriously, Kevin, Joe and Nick gave it their best melancholy looks for a retro-themed shoot and the result is everything.

Playfully dubbed our ‘Nowstalgia’ moment, the renaissance of The Jonas Brothers looks like more fun than ever.

Twelve years after making their name as tween-age Disney stars in the mid-Noughties, the trio seems like the first to take the mickey out of themselves.

But already they have staked their claim to the top of the charts with comeback single Sucker, so who’s really laughing now?

Each with their own individual portraits, the former boyband pose with pet ferrets and shoot wistful looks like they’re in a Hall of Fame for awkward high school pictures.

Styled in a colourful mix of vintage sweatshirts, and new season Fendi and Gucci, we’re actually totally digging the nerdy fashion vibe.

And the Paper shoot also gives the newly-reformed trio a chance to discuss their surprise comeback with forthcoming album Happiness Begins, as well as their history with Disney.

‘We were young adults, having to pretend like we’re young teenagers.’ Joe says of the ‘standstill’ The Jonas Brothers reached in their Disney careers.

Nick adds: ‘We lost touch with what we wanted to say.

‘We understood that our level of success and fame had reached a point, where our musicianship and writing and performing abilities needed time to grow and catch up to it.’

Despite needing to take six years off to punctuate their departure from Disney, the manband is firmly back with a tour and a documentary all about their return to the music scene.
