Nick Jonas is ‘Embarrassed’ with His Sex-Symbol Status: ‘Not Something I Wear as a Badge of Honor’

Nick Jonas appears on the cover of GQ Hype‘s latest issue, where he talked about his music, his marriage, and how he feels about all the attention on his looks.

GQ Hype got right down to business asking if he was aware that fans listen to his music while making love and he is. Nick responded, “I think it’s flattering. It’s important to have a good playlist and I certainly have mine. I wouldn’t include my own music on that playlist though.”

When the interviewer asked if it was a little off-putting Nick replied, “It is but I would be thrilled if someone used my music on theirs for that experience.”

Nick also addressed his sex-symbol status saying, “Er, I think it’s flattering, but attraction is such a nuanced thing,” he shared. “I don’t take it too seriously. I just learn to laugh about it and think about the fact that my parents are probably reading some of the comments.”

“I think when it’s comments attached to things like appearance and body image, that’s when it can become quite dangerous because no one ever knows what someone is going through or how it affects them personally,” he shared. “They’re very sensitive topics. But in the same way, you live a public life and therefore parts of your life are going to be talked about and it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s fair. It’s just a part of your reality.”

Nick continued, “I’m always hopeful that people will think about whether they would say it at a dinner party if the person was sitting opposite you and I’d guess that 99.9 percent of people would say they wouldn’t.”
