If you're anything like us, the news that Nick Jonas is getting ready to release an album called, Last Year Was Complicated, definitely threw you for a loop. Aaand, to be honest, the idea that a Jonas Brother would ever participate in a reddit AMA definitely didn't seem likely. Well, up is down, and down is up and it's a brave new world. Nick Jonas has an album out in June and he is promoting it via Reddit. Here is everything you ever wanted to know about Nick Jonas.
Does Nick still talk to his famous ex, Miley Cyrus?
It’s been a while since I spoke to Miley, but I think that the persona is awesome and I think that she is living proof that you can continue to evolve as an artist and a creator.Nick Jonas
What was it like shooting a NSFW video with Tove Lo?
Shooting the video itself was amazing. I knew that she would be famous when it came to the visuals for this video, which made the whole thing feel a lot better, because we do basically strip down to our underwear and roll around on the ground together. Which was...a little painful at times! But, a really fun video to shoot, and I loved seeing the reactions.Nick Jonas
Boxers or briefs?
Speaking of sexy, I wear boxer briefs. The combo package is the best package to hold the package.Nick Jonas
How did Jay Z help pick your album title?
Basically I went to play the music for Jay Z, who's now partners with my manager, Phil McIntyre. When he heard the record, I said, "I think I have a title picked out," and I told him. And he said, "After hearing all the music, I don't think it's quite right. I think you should try thinking of some other things. Can you just tell me what this year of your life was like?" And I said, "Last year was complicated." And he said, "That's it."Nick Jonas
Who is the smelliest Jonas brother?
Probably Frankie, the 15-year-old. He's awesome, but sometimes he does get a little bit of that stank on him.Nick Jonas
And what was the deal with those purity rings?
There was a person in the church who at one point demanded that all the kids in the youth group put these purity rings on and make this commitment, so without a full understanding of what we were stepping into, we all made this commitment. But as you do, you grow up, you live life, you gain some world perspective and you develop your own views and opinions as it relates to faith, as it relates to sex, and everything that falls under the bounds of what your parents teach you and what comes from religion and you get to make your own choices. So I started making my own choices, fell in love with somebody, made the choice to have sex with them, and from that point on it was about me being a man and being okay with my choices.Nick Jonas
But honestly, I think the most surprising thing is his Reddit bio. "I’m a cigar enthusiast, golfer, tuna fish sandwich artist, uncle, diabetic, snowboarder, singer, songwriter, actor, and recovering teen star."
