Nick Jonas Bares Bulging Biceps For OUT Magazine: Jonas Brothers Talk Gay Rumors, Miley Cyrus, Twerking & More [VIDEO]
The Jonas Brothers appear in the new issue of OUT, talking to the mag about gay rumors, Miley Cyrus' twerking VMA performance and their first album in four years.
In the magazine's cover shot, Nick Jonas (and his bulging biceps!), along with bros Kevin and Joe take center stage.
Check out highlights from the band's candid interview in OUT:
On the release of First Time, the band’s first single and video since 2009
Joe Jonas: We had planned a big, elaborate video, but the song leaked, so we had to think of a way to make a video in a short span of time. Nick was on his way to host the Miss USA pageant in Vegas, so we figured, let’s shoot a video in Vegas and fly in all of our friends. We spent the money we had for the video to throw a party and film it. People assume that we’re still these young kids. It shows us all as adults having a good time and enjoying ourselves.
On Miley Cyrus’s VMA performance
Joe: [Hesitates] It wasn’t my favorite performance of hers. I think that there’s one way of saying you’ve grown up, and there’s another way — I think that’s her way. Look, people are talking about it, so I think it’s working for what she wants.
Nick Jonas: She’s smart. She’s very smart. We’ve always known that about her. She’ll always be successful. [The performance] was funny — I was laughing.
On those gay rumors
Joe: We have a lot of gay friends and gay fans. It’s a boy band stereotype; people assume, but we don’t take offense.
Nick: Prior to us being a band, I was a super theater geek. I loved theater and I still do, and I care about fashion, and I care about a lot of things that I feel like stereotypes are attached to.
Joe: [Being in Out] is a moment for us for sure. We keep saying, “Well, it’s about time.”
On heeding Demi Lovato’s [who dated Joe Jonas] call for a moratorium on twerking
Joe: I’m great [with twerking]. I’m with it.
Nick: I’m against it. I’ve just reached my limit. It’s just done. It’s too much.
Joe: Bring it on. I’m a fan. I just think it’s appropriate for the right people. Not everyone can twerk.
Nick: Anybody that’s on Diplo’s page — have you seen his Instagram? It’s impressive.
Kevin: I’m straight down the middle. The right amount at the right time.
