Whatever your take on Nick Jonas, there’s no denying he’s everywhere. In fact, he’s overexposed. On the heels of his film (Goat, opening today) and upcoming album (Last Year Was Complicated), he was most recently emblazoned on the cover of the newest issue of Wonderland magazine to promote his raft of products. In the accompanying interview, he manages to discuss his sexuality and his sometimes rocky relationship with the gay community.
