Openly gay athlete Michael Sam is among many to have scored a GLAAD Media Award nomination this year, celebrated for doing his part to push fair and accurate representations of members from LGBTQ community in the media.
One has to give it to Nick Jonas.
After observing fellow entertainers Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber make a number of desperate (and at times offensive) moves towards “Urban” music, the former Disney star finds his transition from PG-friendly Pop prince to grown’n’sexy Rhythm & Pop newbie welcomed by the very audience Cyrus and Bieber are still yet to win over completely.
Now listen to his latest effort ‘Numb‘, featuring rapper Angel Haze and packing a sound that’ll no doubt give a number of his contemporaries good reason to consider him serious competition.

Nick Jonas may have bagged a critically acclaimed hit with ‘Jealous’, but it would seem the Disney-sensation turned Miguel-inspired maestro is anything but satisfied with the cut’s success so far.
For, as to ensure the new era of his career does far more than launch the aforementioned single, Jonas took to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to promote the self-titled body of work!
There, he revealed that the project will feature the ‘Dirty Gold‘ rapper Angel Haze!
His announcement below!
Rapper Angel Haze continued her foray into the mainstream during a visit to BBC 1Xtra’s Live Lounge this week.
Currently in promo-mode for debut album ‘Dirty Gold’, the femcee attempts to hook-in new fans with an ambitious take on Beyonce‘s latest smash ‘Drunk In Love’.

Remember Angel Haze? The talented femcee who, like most of the music industry, clashed with Azealia Banks earlier this year.
Well, the fiery rapper is keen to ensure her name is etched in the minds of the masses after dramatically “leaking” her own album following an impassioned Twitter rant.
Details after the jump…
Since blazing onto the scene last year, Azealia Banks has locked horns with an endless list of artists. One of the New Yorker’s most recent sparring partners was fellow femcee Angel Haze who dueled with Banks on Twitter in January.
Fast forward two months and it appears a fork has been struck into the beef. For, when quizzed on the drama in an interview with Fuse at SXWX over the weekend, Haze said:
“I’m a 20 year old girl and sometimes I get a little aggy at other girls who kind of throw a little shade here and there. As far as I’m concerned, it’s totally over. I don’t really care about it and I wish her the most success, and it shouldn’t have happened on such a public platform, so that is all I regret”.
Peep Azealia’s response after the jump…
With the heat from her blazing beef with Azealia Banks cooling, Angel Haze has hit the promotional trail – landing, most recently, in Interview magazine.
And while the rapper’s missing bottoms are sure to set tongues wagging, her interview is equally as compelling.
The 21 year old, who recently signed with Universal Republic, dishes on on her love for Eminem (who she credits with birthing her love for Rap), her rapid rise, wanting to be a rock star and more.
