Kicking off today’s celebrity gossip, Nick Jonas wants haters to know that he’s beyond all the gay baiting that people have tried to engage him in. It’s been speculated for many years about the singer/actor’s sexual preference and why he’s got such a big gay following. It’s pretty simple; the boy is hot and like many other hotties, the gays have good taste and show their attention when they like you.
In the accompanying interview, he tells writer Chadwick Moore that he’s perplexed by those who’ve criticized his steamy photo spreads and appearances at gay clubs.
“It’s not the majority, but a large handful have a negative opinion for whatever reason,” he said, “and I think it’s really quite sad.”
As for inhabiting a gay role for the Audience Network’s “Kingdom,” Jonas called Nate Kulina “a great character to play,” and one that he tries “to be respectful of and take [himself] out of.” In preparing for the part, he said he spoke to close friends who have had challenging coming out experiences themselves.
“It was a good way to research, to kind of build the character with some elements of real life,” he said.
The star also earns brownie points from transgender model Carmen Carrera, a “RuPaul’s Drag Race” veteran.
“I think he’s very humble and an amazing ally,” she told the magazine. “We need more people like him in the music industry—someone who’s willing to come out and say that he supports the entire LGBT community and embraces fans from all walks of life.”
Carrera said she’d love to see Jonas have a trans love interest in one of his music videos for his new album, “Last Year Was Complicated,” and quipped, “Let’s open up that conversation!”
Chloe Moretz has gone public about her relationship with Brooklyn Beckham. During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen also asked Moretz about the heat she has with Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian.

During a recent Selena Gomez concert, a fan passed a sign that ended up on the stage. The sign asked Gomez to marry Justin Bieber, but when she got a hold of it, she promptly crumbled it up and tossed it out of sight. Another fan then jumped on the stage to give Gomez a hug, at which time she led the fan straight to security personnel.
Speaking of Selena Gomez, in an interview with Marie Claire Magazine, she stated that she has been hurt in the past and has trust issues as a result. She said that even though she has been dating people she doesn’t trust anyone. Gomez has made it perfectly clear that she would rather have the media concentrate on her career than on her personal life.
Gomez has been making the media rounds lately and when she spoke to Entertainment Weekly she was asked if she plans to bring other female singers with her on stage during her tour. She replied that she wouldn’t be doing that because she is not Taylor Swift (who often has female singers appear on stage at her shows.) She has said that even though she loves to work with her fellow female artists right now, she is only interested in performing alone.
