Nick Jonas has been the subject of much carnal speculation

Nick Jonas had a very complicated 2015, as his tentative album is appropriately titled. He’s started his own record label Safehouse with partner Demi Lovato, called it quits with 2012 Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, and even took on challenging roles in Kingdom and Scream Queens. Yet despite the pop star’s multi-faceted success, there’s one thing the Jonas Brother can’t seem to shake. In an interview with The Sun, he states that his on-screen relationships remained on-screen.

“On Kingdom I have a sex scene with a guy. 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.”

Despite his religious background and notorious “purity ring,” Nick Jonas is very open about his sexuality. The singer has even admitted Carpool Karaoke host James Corden that his performance at a New York gay club while being tied up was “very, very…erotic.” He retains an upfront manner regarding his heterosexuality, despite rumors of the contrary.

“But as me, Nick, I am very open about who I am and that I have nothing to prove. I know what I am, I’ve been honest about that.”

In the past, Nick Jonas has been romantically linked to Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and most recently actress Kate Hudson. It’s now been confirmed that he’s dating Genesis singer Phil Collins’ daughter, Lily.

“We have known each other for years, just running in the same circles. I’ve enjoyed meeting different people and spending time with people with all the cards on the table. All people need human interaction at some level. And at my age too, dating is important, getting to know yourself by meeting different people, seeing what it’s all about,” he tells The Sun.

Recently, the pop singer-turned-mogul has released a new single with Ty Dolla $ign titled “Bacon” that’s available on Apple Music and Spotify. “Bacon” is the third single off of his much anticipated new album Last Year Was Complicated, following the track “Close” featuring Tove Lo.
