Nick Jonas covers gay glossy 'Out'

Singer-actor Nick Jonas covers the June/July cover of gay glossy Out.

In his cover story interview with Out, Jonas discusses his burgeoning acting career, his upcoming solo album, Last Year Was Complicated, and the accusations of gay baiting.

Jonas said that Complicated was inspired by his breakup with Miss USA Olivia Culp.

"With this one I made a real point to tell stories as honestly as I could," Jonas said. "It became very clear what it was going to be about, after the breakup. I just dove in headfirst and wrote about all of it. I think it was the most meaningful relationship I've ever been in, and it was the longest."

The 23-year-old Jonas played a closeted frat boy on Fox's Scream Queens, plays a gay MMA fighter on the DirecTV drama Kingdom and has made several appearances at gay bars in New York City, which has led to accusations of gay baiting.

"It's not the majority, but a large handful have a negative opinion for whatever reason," he said of courting gay fans, "and I think it's really quite sad."
