Nick Jonas is gearing up for the release of his second solo album, Last Year Was Complicated, and on Thursday (March 31), he took questions from fans on Reddit about the project... along with some other eclectic topics.
One said topic included the "Hall Pass" scenario, where a couple makes an exception about infidelity if they ever get a chance with a choice celebrity. I'll let the AMA guy tell you about it:
"My wife and I both have a "Celebrity hall-pass" where we each chose 1 celebrity we can sleep with if the opportunity ever came up (Mine is Jennifer Lawrence...probably no chance, lol) Hers is you!! Since she doesn't Reddit I feel it is my husbandly duty to ask...Want to sleep with my wife?"
Yeah, awkward question. But Jonas handled it with care and a polite decline.
"So this is not the first time someone has mentioned the celebrity hall pass thing to me, and in reference I guess specifically to me being the hall pass of the couple. It's incredibly overwhelming to think about that and to think about the fact that that's actually a conversation that's been had and then they meet the person. So I don't know if I want that pressure, haha. And good luck with your hunt for Jennifer Lawrence. You know, anything could happen."
Probably a good choice, Nick. Anyway, the "Close" singer went on to talk about his new album, diabetes and those purity rings, which will probably haunt him for the rest of his life.
"I'd like to start by saying this: I came from an incredibly religious home, growing up my dad was a pastor, and much like The First Family or people in front of the public eye, we were highly scrutinized as a family within the church and looked at as, well I guess you would call an example of what that family image should be. So long before our career started in music, that was what we were dealing with.
"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.
"But as you do, you grow up, you live life, you gain some world perspective and you develop your own views and opinions as it relates to faith, as it relates to sex, and everything that falls under the bounds of what your parents teach you and what comes from religion and you get to make your own choices."
