In a fairly short period of time, Nick Jonas has gone from a chastity ring-wearing member of a boy band dubbed the JoBros, to an overly sexual character with ridiculously toned muscles you didn't even know you had a crush on.
It was just mid-September when the 22-year-old revealed that his chastity ring no longer had a place on his finger. He explained, "This is a real growth in me and not something I'm doing anymore. But I've got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life and that's all that matters." Some believe this had less to do with the church, and more to do with his fling with Olivia Culpo.
Fast forward a few weeks, and Nick is posing in Flaunt Magazine shirtless and eventually pantless, just as Marky Mark did. Less than a week later, Nick took his chiseled figure to fashion, attracting the maximum amount of eyeballs on Ksubi's relaunch. Shortly thereafter, he flexed for Details, where he presented the most toned upper butt to ever exist.
Just last week, Nick starred in a tutorial on how to methodically perform his artful crotch-grab.
And now, in the latest installment of having Nick Jonas's hormones thrown in your face, the singer spoke with Attitude magazine, shedding some light on his intimate life. He said, "Sex is such an important part of a healthy life, in the sense that it's such an intrinsic part of who you are." It doesn't stop, "When your sex life is not healthy, you resort to other things as an outlet. And in terms of the show, that's tough to watch."
He is clearly pleased with the rebranding considering he just retweeted this fan tweet:
Bought the new @nickjonas album today. Cashier said "Did you find everything you nee...woah. He really grew up." Yes. Yes he did.— Emily McRae (@McRaeEmily) November 10, 2014
