Nick Jonas and brother Joe seem to be adjusting well to post-Disney life. Joe's new band, DNCE is hanging around the pop charts. Nick himself is releasing a new album, Last Year Was Complicated, on June 10. He stopped by Reddit for an AMA early Thursday, speaking on everything from Miley to those famous purity rings that he and his brothers wore in their eponymous band. He says that he initially didn't like the famous South Park episode during which Mickey Mouse beats the Jonas brothers until they wear their purity rings. "When it first came out I didn't think it was funny to be honest, but probably because I was actually living all of that in real time and so it just made it harder to come and live your life as a young person and have all that going on. But years later and once the purity rings were no longer around, it was very funny to me and I've actually watched the episode a few times." He also says that he wishes ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus the best. "To answer the first part, it’s been a while since I spoke to Miley, but I think that the persona is awesome and I think that she is living proof that you can continue to evolve as an artist and a creator. And I'm a huge Woody Allen fan, so I'm looking forward to seeing the show that she's doing with him." Jonas was candid when asked about the ups and downs of being part of the Disney machine. "As far as one thing people don't know, I think the main thing is that it does actually give you good perspective on work ethics. People confuse being a young Disney star with just the pressures that you face which is one piece to it, but it's more than just that." He also broke down where the purity rings came from. "There was a person in the church who at one point demanded that all the kids in the youth group put these purity rings on and make this commitment, so without a full understanding of what we were stepping into, we all made this commitment." Jonas went on to say that he grew and matured and went on to have his own ideas about sex. Some of those ideas are on display below, in his video for "Close" featuring Tove Lo. It's a little NSFW, so make sure the boss isn't around.
