Nick Jonas on Supporting LGBT Community, His Future in Music, and More

Nick Jonas stopped into the Adorama Live Theatre with one half of Fresh 102.7’s afternoon drive show, Trey Morgan of Trey & Ghia. The pair went live on Facebook to discuss Jonas’s involvement in the LGBT community and some of the backlash he received following his appearance at Stonewall Inn following the mass shooting at Pulse night club in Orlando.

“I spoke from the heart… it was a terrible tragedy,” says Jonas, who was asked to speak during the rally held at New York City’s famed Stonewall Inn. “It was a powerful night. I was honored to be there. [I] hope we see some change in the country so things like this don’t happen.”

Jonas’s new album – Last Year Was Complicated – has been met with critical acclaim and has found success with multiple singles from the album, though he doesn’t think he’ll be releasing albums, per se, in the future.

“It’s an interesting time in music. It’s evolving in a big way. The traditional album model is kind of getting lost for a lot of people,” says Jonas, noting the approach Drake and Calvin Harris as taken with releasing music outside of the classic format, utilizing streaming and creating new, interesting content. “That old structure doesn’t really exist.

“This may be my last traditional album release. I might just go to a different model that’ makes more sense for where I want to go as an artist,” he added.
