“It’s an honor, but I don’t think of myself as an icon. There should be a lot more straight artists who don’t have a problem with having gay fans. I’m really proud to play gay characters and I’ll continue to do so. I think it’s among the challenges of maturing as an actor,” Jonas (who plays a gay boxer in Kingdomtold the magazine.

He also reveals plans to return to Broadway and working with Demi: “I’m so happy to share the stage with Demi, we’ve been friends forever. And I’m very pleased about the work done on the new album, it has more of a soul/R&B sound than the previous ones”.
