Nick Jonas is on fire.
No, really. He’s actually up in flames for his photoshoot with Complex magazine.
Jonas turns up the heat in the issue’s cover story, where he respectfully declines to admit he had sex with Kate Hudson (they asked him point blank), will DM girls on Instagram, details his breakup with ex Olivia Culpo and talks about whether he’s been with a man (or not).
If he had sex with Kate Hudson:
“Kate’s incredible. We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that’s beautiful. Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, I’m not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection. Even now I have so much admiration and respect. She’s amazing… It’s a bizarre matchup to a lot of people.”
Avoiding Tinder, but DMing hot girls on Instagram:
“Slide right in there sometimes,” he admits. “And then you’ll text the person and finally meet the person. It’s like online dating. Even that freaks me the f—ck out. I’m like, should it be a group? Just the person? It’s scary.”
Breaking up with ex 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,” he says. “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.”
Whether he’s been with a man:
“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. There’s always going to be negativity toward anything that is a positive effort toward change,” he says. “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. There’s a gay sex scene. I kissed a man. The goal is acceptance on all levels— that should be the focus,” he continues. “I’ve gone to normal clubs, straight clubs, and I’ve gone to gay clubs, to party with my friends and fans. There’s no difference. I have nothing to prove. I’m very comfortable in my own skin and I’m thankful to have as many close gay friends as I have, people who have been so supportive in my life, and have always been there for me.”
