The 22-year-old star insists he would never say never to getting back together with the band - which was made up of himself and his brothers Kevin and Joe - but admits it's not something he's planning any time soon.
He said: "I don't know. My life has changed so much in 12 months that I can't predict what tomorrow is going to bring, you know? It's hard to imagine saying "never". But for this moment in time that I'm in right now, I don't see that happening."
The hunk has launched his own solo career since parting ways with his brothers and is trying to lay down a "foundation" so he can continue to make music and entertain people for the rest of his life.
He explained: "I think part of the beauty of being a pop phenomenon is that you're going 1 000 miles per hour, and it's all happening - and that's also the hard part about it.
"It's very easy to get used to certain things going at that speed, with that frenzy behind it. But it's not necessarily the foundation for the best, long lasting career.
"This time around, I'm trying to set up a foundation so that I can do what I love for the rest of my life. I see my career as not just music, but as hopefully an entertainer on all mediums, and someone who can have real influence and make great art."
The Jealous singer added he is inspired by the career journeys of music legend Elvis Presley and Take Back the Night hitmaker Justin Timberlake.
Quizzed on who his biggest role models are, he told Rolling Stone magazine: "Elvis, for sure. He was one of the first ones to do acting and singing at the same time, and he's obviously an icon. On top of that, I think that Justin Timberlake has done a good job of not only transitioning from where he started, but also balancing acting and singing."
