Nick Jonas on His Shirtless Selfie: 'It's Been a Pretty Hilarious Reaction' — AUDIO


Nick Jonas talks to the Ryan Seacrest Show about the viral shirtless Instagram selfie that lit up the web this week:

“There’s a lot of people running around without their shirts on these days, so I just didn’t want to add to the noise, but I felt like as a diabetic … it’s twice as hard for us diabetics to stay in shape. I’ve met a lot of diabetics recently who have come to me and said, ‘Thank you for being so vocal about fitness and health’ because it’s helping them. I just wanted to give some inspiration to those people … It’s been a pretty hilarious reaction.”

He also talks about where he is in the photo, and when he'll post his next one.

  1. Big yawn. Is this the most important news going around today? Male media wh'ores are no more appealing than female media wh'ores. Lit up the web? Puh-lease.

  10. He's on the same kind of track in my mind as Taylor Lautner and Zac Efron. One day you don't even know who they are because they A) are teenagers, which is not my thing and B) star in kids shows which I don't watch. Then suddenly the next day you turn around and they're old enough where it seems OK to picture them bending you over a sawhorse in the barn and riding you like a cowboy.

    Hey, I'm still in my 30s so this isn't all THAT creepy. Right? RIGHT?!?!

  13. How do you know it's not a selfie? It's called a timer fellas, all cellphone cameras have them now, lol. Set the timer, press the camera button, set it down and strike a pose.

  14. Guilty secret: I like the Jonas brothers. Now, that being said, I'm calling BS on this story. "I just wanted to give hope to diabetics!" As if!! What he MEANT to say was: "I'm hot, look at me!" Oh, Nick.

  15. @Lucas: You nailed it. Dude wanted to show off, but instead of owning up it, made up some BS story about "diabetes awareness".

    I have no problem with him showing off his awesome body, since he obviously put a lot of work into it. It's just annoying that he used his diabetes as a lame cop-out instead just being honest about wanting to flaunt the goods.

  16. Nick your photo gave inspiration to diabetics and boners to some of us who aren't diabetics. Boy, you sure look HOT!!!

  17. Nick is the sexiest Jonas. Seacrest was right there to cover it.

  18. Why does sexy have to be "hilarious?" Nick knows exactly how people, especially gay guys, would react to his picture. That's why he put it up. Keep up the good workouts.

  19. Does anyone else think that's a bad photoshopping job?

  20. For the cynics here, he's not exaggerating when he says it's twice as hard for diabetics to stay in shape. That being said, this is definitely photoshopped; notice there's a bit of a white halo around his hair, and shadows over his raised arm and his other shoulder.

  21. Nick Jonas is my favorite Disney ride. Yum
