Nick Jonas Complex Cover Story Interview


Nick Jonas opens up about Kate Hudson, being single, and rumors that he’s gay in a candid new Complex cover story. Check out highlights from the interview below!

Nick On Splitting From Olivia Culpo, Dating, And Being Single
“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. 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.”

Nick On Whether He’s Had Sex With Kate Hudson
“Umm. You know, it’s interesting. You’re allowed to ask me whatever the f*ck you want and I’ll answer it, or not.”

“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.”

“[People’s interest] doesn’t shock me or surprise me. I don’t get pissed off about it. I’ve come to accept it. With that in particular. It’s a bizarre matchup to a lot of people.”

Nick On Meeting Women Through DMs
“Slide right in there sometimes. 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.”

Nick On Drugs
“I had voices telling me I was going to die. It was like, ‘That’s it,’” he recalls of a bad weed trip. “I don’t like being out of control. “I don’t like that feeling. I like being in the driver’s seat. Putting myself in the position where I feel like I would be out of control scares me.”

Nick On Being “Free” And “Loose”
“I feel really free. The most free in my life that I’ve ever been. Career-wise I don’t feel trapped. I feel great. And as far as me, Nick, as a person, I feel the most free. Here’s to free Nick. He’s way more fun to be around.”

“I think I’ve loosened up quite a bit. I’m very fun. I’m just waiting for other people to see it, too.”

Nick On His Disney Days
“It was a job. It was a lot of responsibility. It was also excellent training for what I’m doing now.”

Nick On Jonas Brothers Split
“It would have ended badly if we hadn’t ended it when we did.”

Nick On Gay Rumors
“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.”

“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. 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.”

Nick On Working With Jay Z
“I’ll throw things off him when things come up, music-wise, or when trying to come up with a name for the tour. It’s amazing to have someone like him around. I’ve been incredibly fortunate with that. The partnership already is great.”

Nick On His Friendship And Safehouse Records Partnership With Demi Lovato
“I love Demi to death. She has gone through her journey, which was complicated. I think she’s one of the most talented, passionate people I know. I’m grateful to have her as a friend and also as a business partner.”

“There have been times for both Demi and me in our careers when we didn’t feel protected, didn’t feel safe. “It’s important for us to transition, not only as artists, but as business people. To take that next step.”

Demi On Nick
“He’s so driven and it inspires me to work harder as an artist. To every last detail, Nick will work and work on a song or idea until it’s perfect. So not only I am thankful to have him basically as my twin brother but also to have him involved in my career and as a brilliant business partner as well.”
