Nick Jonas has never been shy about sharing how he’s matured over the past year.
First, there were those steamy (and now famous) crotch-grabbing underwear pics – and now, he’s opening up about why he made the decision to ditch his purity ring.
In a new interview with British talk show Loose Women, Nick got candid about her personal life, sharing, “It’s important for anyone to grow, the thing that was strange for me was the emphasis on my sex life at 14, it’s a crazy thing. I've seen a lot of my peers struggle with media attention on things that are very personal and that was one.”
“I had the time outside of the public eye to develop my own belief system and figure out what is important to me and what I believe in relation to sex and God and all those kind of things, you do as you grow up and now I’m happy, I’m a man and I do what men do,” the 22-year-old added.
This isn't the first time Nick, who has been dating girlfriend Olivia Culpo since 2013, has opened up about growing up. Just last year he admitted he was no longer a virgin when he appeared on The Wendy Williams Show.
All three Jonas Brothers famously rocked their purity rings when they first rose to fame.
Nick’s 25-year-old brother, Joe, has also talked about losing his virginity. In an essay he wrote for New York Magazine, he revealed, "I lost my virginity when I was 20,” before adding, “I’m glad I waited for the right person” Meanwhile, the oldest JoBro, 27-year-old Kevin, stuck to the purity ring promise, waiting until he married his wife Danielle in 2009.
What do you think of Nick’s most recent interview? Are you happy to see how open and candid he is? Or, do you think he should keep some stuff to himself?
