We’ve figured out what Nick Jonas has been up to in the wake of the Jonas Brothers disbandment: spending all of his time at the gym. The 22-year-old star is showing off his crazy-toned body in the Flaunt magazine’s ‘The Grind Issue’ — and the photos are very racy — even borderline NSFW. (So, um, sorry if your boss is right behind you!) Check them out below.
In a series of super-sexy shots, Jonas poses in his underwear, shows off his backside and does an aggressive crotch grab that would probably even make 1990s-era Mark Wahlberg blush. He also opens up to the magazine about going solo and how he thinks people will respond to his new music.
“I really try to be aware of the purpose of each song. There are songs on my record that I want people to have sex to, and songs people can listen to when they’re pissed off,” he shares. “And I think that’s the beautiful thing about music: That in those moments, you hear it and it elevates the scenario.”
He also explains that there is a little bit more attitude behind his songs, which is apparently part of the “chin music” movement. (And we can see that confident attitude in the photos as well.) Wait, what? Let him explain.
“Prince’s drummer — name drop there! — his name is Michael Bland. He was talking to me one time on tour, and I was telling him a story about something, and he was like: ‘Oh, he was giving you chin music?’ It’s like, what? What are you talking about? And he was like, ‘It’s when someone gives you attitude. They give you that chin music. I went online and there are like 50 different definitions,” Jonas explains. “The most popular one is baseball: Someone throws something high inside — it’s chin music. Kind of telling the batter to back up. I loved that as the best representation of the feeling in the song. You’re sorta like, hey, back up a little bit, when someone’s being too, you know, excited about your girlfriend.”
Speaking of girlfriends, Jonas has been dating beauty queen Olivia Culpo (a former Miss USA winner) and he’s definitely been in great shape since their relationship started. (Remember this braggy hot bod selfie he posted last year?) Jonas is also playing a professional boxer (hence his tip-top shape) in the upcoming DirecTV drama Navy St., premiering this month.
