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."
