Nick Jonas grew up before our very eyes. He was that little, curly-haired kid with the husky voice from the Jonas Brothers band with Kevin and Joe Jonas. And now he’s tall, handsome, buff, and gay?
Nick Jonas famously dated A-list celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. He was even rumored to have hooked up with Kate Hudson, but that doesn’t mean that Nick Jonas is already off the hook from people judging his sexuality.
According to Huffington Post, the 23-year-old “Jealous” hitmaker is opening up about gay sex, among other things. Nick Jonas currently plays a closeted gay man on the U.S. martial arts drama “Kingdom.”
Jonas’ sexuality has always been a hot topic among the gay community. The singer is claiming that he’s only had gay sex on screen, contrary to what his fans believe.
“On ‘Kingdom’ I have a sex scene with a guy,” Nick Jonas shared. “It’s my lips, it’s my hands, it’s my body, even if I’m playing a character. So technically I have done that, so I wouldn’t say I haven’t, because that would be lying.”
He then added, “But as me, Nick, I am very open about who I am and that I have nothing to prove,” he said. “I know what I am, I’ve been honest about that.”
Being raised with conservative parents – his father worked as a pastor and his mother as a sign language teacher – Nick Jonas grew up laid back, mouth sealed.
Earlier this month, Nick Jonas spoke to OUT Magazine about how he prepared for his Nate Kulina role. He revealed that he spoke to some of his close friends, some of which were raised in conservative upbringings, about their coming-out experiences.
“It was a good way to research,” says the famous Jonas brother, “to kind of build the character with some elements of real life.”
Nick Jonas comes out very progressive on his roles despite some insensitive, unaccepting spectators keep on baiting him for his decisions. With this, Jonas’ career speaks for itself and he deserves the wave of success.
