Nick Jonas: Taylor Swift is Following Me On Twitter Which Is Cool


Nick Jonas called MTV from the road recently to give them a weekly update. The 17-year-old took the time to talk about the tour, staying healthy, and the latest rumors.

On working out: “I actually was just at a baseball training facility here in Milwaukee, just trying to keep active and get ready for next season. I don’t really like to work out at a gym or anything. Finding other ways to [stay in shape] is fun for me.”

On touring: “As far as being on the road, what’s great is that every show is different and every venue is different, and because it’s so new, it just all feels brand-new to me.”

On if he’s heard from Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus after covering their songs: “I really haven’t heard from them directly. I noticed that Taylor started following me [on Twitter] after I played her song, which is cool. … I think they’re great songs and I’m just happy to throw them in there and play them in the set. I think a great song is a great song at the end of the day.”

On performing with Kevin & Joe in NYC: “Having Kevin and Joe up there was amazing. I got caught in the moment and wanted to share that moment with them. I didn’t tell them, and we sang a song called ‘Please Be Mine.’ … They came out and played it, and the crowd responded well.”

On rumors that he’s dating Selena Gomez after she’s been spotted at his shows: “I think that when it comes to things like that, I enjoy the show, I enjoy the time that we have together and let them do their thing and I’ll do mine, I guess. [It’s] not so much a surprise [on the rumors]. The thing that’s kind of funny to me is the fact that I’m still very young, and as far as a relationship, it’s kind of young stuff, and people being interested in that is funny to me, but it’s all good. It’s flattering, and that’s how you have to look at it.”
