Nick Jonas' Presidential plans

Jonas Brothers star Nick Jonas, 16, has revealed he hopes to become President of America later in his life

Nick Jonas wants to be US President.

The 16-year-old musician is keen to make the move into politics, and has wanted to serve his country since he was a child.

He said: "I've always said that I would like to be president. It's kind of my whole thing. I'm starting the campaign now."

Nick also spoke about his struggle with diabetes - a medical condition where the body does not produce enough or respond properly to insulin, and which can result in renal failure and blindness - saying he was keen to raise awareness of the condition.

He explained to CNN show 'The Situation Room': "I'm here to basically raise awareness and encourage people to continue to do what they can to raise awareness as well in their own circle and on a broader scale.

"Obviously, we've made some advances in technology to better manage our diabetes, but we're hoping for a cure one day, and that's what the main goal is."
