It can't be easy being Nick Jonas! Reigniting his super stardom while in the middle of a breakup and working on a new album, can be a lot for one person! In a recent interview with Complex Magazine, Nick talks about playing a gay role on tv, break up with former Miss Universe new music and more!
Check out a few excerpts:
On Gay role:
“It’s funny. I play a gay character on a TV show. Whether it’s me or the character, at the end of the day it’s still my body, it’s still telling the story. It’s the character and his journey, but it’s my body, my lips, my hands.” It frustrates him that some people think he’s exploiting the community for his own ends, dropping winking hints about his sexuality either way. “There’s always going to be negativity toward anything that is a positive effort toward change. As a heterosexual male, [I am] open and comfortable about loving my fan base, gay or straight, because to me there is no difference, it is my fan base. Your sexual preference does not matter to me and it shouldn’t matter to anybody. I thought [the criticism] was kind of dumb, considering I play this gay character on a gritty show."
On creating his new label Safehouse:
“The world of music is changing so dramatically every day, the way people hear music. It’s different. It’s a new day and requires new thinking.”
On talking to Jay Z:
“I’ll throw things off him when things come up, music-wise, or when trying to come up with a name for the tour,” says Jonas. “It’s amazing to have someone like him around. I’ve been incredibly fortunate with that. The partnership already is great.”
On Break up with Olivia Culpo:
“It was first excitement to have freedom to be whoever I wanted to be, be my own person. Then the feeling of being disheartened by what’s out there. Then getting into crazy artist mode and throwing it all out, the good, bad, and ugly. Then meeting people, making a real effort to open up and be free as a person. I’ve met some people that are amazing. And my current situation is that I’m very much single, but I’m trying to be as open to people who can inspire me in some way.”
