Nick Jonas Confronts “Gay Baiting” Accusations Head On
You’ve been sitting around wondering whether Nick Jonas thinks he’s been exploiting his gay fanbase. Well, you can rest easy — because he doesn’t.
Talking to Billboard, Jonas says those accusations that he’s stringing along gay men is totally unfair.
“Think about my past and where my love for performance comes from — musical theater,” he says. “And playing this gay fighter in a very macho world for Kingdom, it requires me digging really deep, and I do it with respect and honor.”
As for the backlash he faced after speaking at New York’s Orlando vigil, he has no regrets whatsoever.
“I wouldn’t change a thing,” he says. “That’s a moment — and in general the time we’re in in this country — where unity, support and raising our hand and saying we can make change is what’s important, so it’s a shame when people make it about something else.”
You cannot break him, Internet.
