Nick Jonas Covers Kanye West's 'Only One' - LISTEN

Screenshot 2015-02-26 06.31.40

Nick Jonas, in case you haven’t been paying attention for the past few months or so, has been carefully recrafting his image as a part of a larger game plan to solidify himself as a solid vocalist. He went and got buff, began baiting the gays, and continued to bait the gays--all while dropping the occasional single from his new eponymous album.

For those of us unconvinced by Jonas’s gospel rendition of ‘Jealous,’ the 22-year old singer is back with a stripped down cover of Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s ‘Only One.’ Whether or not this song will finally convince you to start taking Jonas seriously we can’t say, but we endeavour you to give the song a listen and share your thoughts here AFTER THE JUMP...

Nick Jonas and Jake Shears to Headline Sydney's Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras: VIDEO


Nick Jonas and Jake Shears will headline this year's Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on March 7 with Betty Who, Australian R&B/pop singer Jessica Mauboy, and drag queen Courtney Act, organizers announced today.

The festival, which lasts from February 20 to March 8 began as a gay rights march in June of 1978. It continues to include a world-famous parade down Oxford Street.

Said Jonas in an interview: "I will be making my first appearance in Australia at Mardi Gras. I am so excited to perform, I know Mardi Gras is an amazing night and whole thing and I am just thrilled.”

Jonas said last year that he was making a concerted effort to reach out to his gay fan base. Those fans down under are about to get a taste of it.

Shears has been fairly under-the-radar since announcing the Scissor Sisters' "indefinite hiatus" in late 2012.

It's Official: Nick Jonas' Character in 'Kingdom' Is Gay - VIDEO


After months of teasing, strip teasing, and possibly even a little bit of queerbaiting, Nick Jonas finally gave his gay fans more than just lip/ab service for last night's season finale of DirecTV's MMA drama Kingdom. In the episode it's revealed Nick Jonas' character Nate Kulina is gay, with Nate getting kicked out of a gay bar and hooking up with another guy. 

BuzzFeed reports:

NickjonasThe reveal may have surprised viewers, but the actor has known about Nate’s sexuality since Day 1. “Byron [Balasco, Kingdom creator] told me before shooting began,” Jonas told BuzzFeed News exclusively during a recent phone interview. “Everyone at Kingdom was really transparent about the character and some of the things the character would go through. And in my prep work, I wanted to be aware so I could properly tell this story.”

“For me, it was important to maintain the stakes for Nate,” the 22-year-old actor and singer continued. “He lives in a world of fear — fear of disappointing his father, both in the cage and outside of the cage — and he carries that pressure with him in so many ways. I think it’s something a lot of people can relate to.”

For Balasco, having a gay character in the MMA world was particularly important. “I wanted to tell this story in an environment that would be, perhaps, extra challenging for a gay man,” the Kingdom creator told BuzzFeed News. “Really show somebody who is struggling with this part of his life and reconciling it with the combination of what it takes to be an elite level athlete and how that concentration makes you to block out and ignore real questions that you have about yourself and about the life you’re living.”

Head over to Buzzfeed here to for more on the news and Nick's thoughts on filming a gay love scene for a future episode.
