With just a month away from the release of his sophomore solo album ‘Last Year Was Complicated,’ you can expect to see much of hitmaking heartthrob Nick Jonas on your screen and newsstands in the coming weeks.

After lending an electrifying performance his latest hit ‘Close’ to ‘Ellen’ this week, fans can now find the ‘Jealous’ crooner taking to the LGBT-publication OUT magazine where he serves as the June/July 2016 coverboy.

Dishing on everything from his new music, love life, and more, Jonas also hits back at critics who claim he’s ‘gay-baiting,’ or intentionally pandering to the LGBT-audience, by taking on several gay roles on television.

Is Jonas an opportunist or simply misunderstood?  Read his response below:

 

On criticism for alleged ‘gay-baiting’:

“It’s not the majority, but a large handful have a negative opinion for whatever reason,” he says, “and I think it’s really quite sad.”

On naming his new album:

“When I was working on this album, Jay Z asked me what it was about,” he announces. “I said it was about the past year of my life, and that the year was complicated. Jay Z said, ‘That’s the name of your album: Complicated.’ ”

On inspiration behind new album’s content:

“With this one I made a real point to tell stories as honestly as I could.” “It became very clear what it was going to be about, after the breakup [with girlfriend/Miss USA Olivia Culpo]. I just dove in headfirst and wrote about all of it. I think it was the most meaningful relationship I’ve ever been in, and it was the longest.”

On dating in the public eye:

“It definitely sucks. It sort of feels like, on top of dealing with the situation with the person, you have to be thinking about other people’s opinion about it, and without all the information.”

    He’s pretty basic no doubt but he’s still better than Zayn (looks wise, don’t give a damn about their music)

    • What Now May 10, 2016

      You know damn well this critter does NOT look better than King Z!

      • Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) May 10, 2016

        That twink has NO body whatsoever, his face is alright but he has NOTHING remotely s*** about him. He looks like he’s 14, Nicks arms are bigger than Zayns thighs, no thanks

    How convenient is it for him to do yet another cover for a gay magazine while dressing gay rumors? Let him keep playing these games with himself and his fans, and let’s see if hell have a career 5 years from now. He better pick a side, claim it, and stay on it.

    Zayn slays this basic ass wannabe.

    The “Gays” aren’t stupid. They know talent or meek talent. They, rightly, just see s** when they see him. His body is much more talented than his music.

  7. Nicki Minaj thee ONLY QB May 11, 2016

    He’s an actor he’s ACTING gay it doesn’t mean he is or wants to be how dumb are you people..?

    He’s cute (I love his squinty eyes) and his body >>> Don’t really care for his music or voice though.

    Nick Jonas is cute so I don’t have a problem with him using us gays to sell albums and using us as a career. Plus he’s a talented dude. And how is it any different from how Madonna, Janet and lady gaga? They all used the gay community as one point to boost they’re careers
