Joe Jonas Turns 23: The ‘Next’ Step for the JoBro (PHOTOS)

All about Joe Jonas' new talent competition series.
It’s a busy week for Joe Jonas. The middle Jonas Brother turns 23 on August 15; the next day sees the debut of The Next, the CW singing competition on which he’s a talent judge.

‘Next’ seems to have been a theme in his life, whether he’s looking toward the next phase of his music career, the next new thing in fashion… or the next in a long line of equally famous girlfriends. As he looks toward his next step — along with his brothers, he’s becoming a full-fledged reality TV star – check out these photos, tracing his personal life and career from his earliest days of fame through, well, next week and next month.

After the jump, watch a retrospective of Joe Jonas’ life and loves.
