Nick Jonas Covers OUT Magazine

Hottie and current "It Boy" Nick Jonas covers the June/July 2016 issue of OUT Magazine, and inside chats on his burgeoning acting career, his upcoming solo album, Last Year Was Complicated, and the constant accusations of gay baiting.

From the interview with Chadwick Moore:

On the accusations of courting the LGBT community and working both the LGBT press and New York City’s gay club circuit:
The accusations of gay baiting and opportunism have left Jonas a bit wounded. “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 "Nate," his queer character on television series Kingdom, who is grappling with masculinity and a conservative family:
“It’s been a great character to play,” says Jonas, “One that I try to be respectful of and take myself out of. He’s on his own path.” To prepare for the part, he spoke to some of his closest friends, some of whom were raised in conservative families about their coming-out experiences. “It was a good way to research,” says Jonas, “to kind of build the character with some elements of real life.”

On having his romantic life in the public eye and being dissected by the media:
“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.” When he was younger (and still a Jonas Brother), he found this attention rather creepy. “The fact that people were intrigued by a 14 – or 15-year-old’s relationships was strange to me,” he says. “Now I think it makes a bit more sense. I think it’s kind of amusing, people’s interests. But it’s funny, because I think I live a pretty low-key life.”
