It was also excellent training for what I’m doing now,” he says.In the parking lot of Pinches Tacos, he tells his bodyguard we’re going to Bar Marmont, like he’s checking in with his dad, and we jaywalk across a strangely deserted Sunset Boulevard. Twenty-four hours earlier, all my notions about Nick Jonas were rooted in nostalgia for his Disney years and further complicated by his current breakout, a three-tiered career track that has him dabbling in acting, singing, and producing, seemingly trying out all the professional hats a 23-year-old megastar could.

"I am dating," the mother-of-two teases while sporting a shy smile. The 36-year-old even attended the ex-Disney star's concert at the House of Blues while in Florida. Jonas also was asked in an interview with Complex magazine last month whether he had sex with Hudson. "We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that’s beautiful. She’s amazing."

Still, though he spent his teen years in an invisible cage, watched by millions of other teens everywhere, Jonas insists that things were pretty normal for the most part (except dating Miley and Selena).
In truth, his life felt like it was fractured in two: There was Real Teen Nick, and then there was Disney Nick. What was real to Jonas was all the IRL teen drama he let into his life: the angst about girls, hormones, growing up—the usual.
And as far as me, Nick, as a person, I feel the most free.” We tipsily clink our glasses: “Here’s to free Nick,” we say, toasting his liberation.
