Nick Jonas is so ready to shred his Disney image. The former Jonas Brothers member talked about smoking weed, hanging out with Taylor Swift and his huge gay fan base.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 22-year-old opened about his insecurities in building a solo career after the band split up. Thanks to his hit single, “Jealous,” and hard rock abs the singer got a second chance to revive his status. Nick also landed a role as a closeted mixed martial arts fighter on the DirecTV’s series “Kingdom.”
Because of his new image, it’s not surprising that the Disney alum had lot of gay fans. But Nick says he doesn’t consider himself as a gay icon.
“My goal in the last year was to expand and grow as a person and an artist, and embracing my gay fans was a priority. Some of my gay friends have thanked me for that, and that’s a really good feeling,” Nick explained on Rolling Stone.
Growing up right in front of the camera had been very difficult for Nick. He shared that he had turned to smoking weed to compensate for the pressure he had been feeling. Olivia Culpo’s boyfriend, however, says that he never did drugs with his fellow Disney stars.
“I smoked weed elsewhere but I was actually way more guarded back then. I wasn’t partying too hard at 15, which is probably for the best. I’ve loosened up quite a bit since then,” Nick added.
He may not like partying in his early years, but there’s no denying that the “Jealous” singer loved going out and having a hard time. Nick even posted a photo of himself wearing a zebra mask taken at Taylor Swift’s 25th party.
“I think that was just the tequila talking,” he said laughing.
