Is Nick Jonas the New Justin Timberlake?

With his new band and new album, Nick Jonas is poised to become the next big thing!

Here are some of our favorite quotes from the interview — you can read the whole story on the fashion mag’s web site.

  • On his musical roots: “My real musical discovery started when I was 10 with Stevie Wonder and the Jackson 5, and acts that I connected with because they were young when they were doing it, like me.”
  • On his heroes, the Kings of Leon: “I admire Kings of Leon. I think their records are amazing,” said Jonas. “It’s cool to see that they get to do what they love. But I think they clearly have an appreciation for where they came from, and it has shaped who they are.”
  • On the HOT photos, and breaking free from his brothers: “With the record, with the art, I do want to express myself fully; express the thoughts and stories and ideas that I have,” said Jonas, “And I think on this record I did the best job I could with that.”
