Nick Jonas spoke to Sorted magazine about virginity and marriage

AMERICAN pop star Nick Jonas is featured as the cover story in the May/June issue of Sorted magazine. Jonas, who shot to international stardom with the multi-Platinum selling Jonas Brothers but who subsequently reached creative and spiritual crisis before returning to solo success (a number one hit single "Complicated") and expanding his career into film acting, spoke at length to journalist Karen Anne Overton. Amongst the subjects touched on was his much publicised decision to renounce his purity ring, which symbolised a pledge to remain a virgin until marriage. He said, "It was a deeply personal move and was rooted in my ability to reflect clearly on childhood beliefs, having had enough time away from it to foster my own understanding and interpretation of faith. A long time before it was a commitment that was asked of us by someone at the church, but we were too young then to understand what was being asked, and we hadn't learned enough about faith or ourselves to decide if that was the way we wanted to celebrate religion. So I think when you make your own choices and fall in love, you are entitled, as a man, to be OK with your own choices." CR
