Nick Jonas ‘not ready’ for new relationship
Nick Jonas isn’t ready for a new relationship.
The 23-year-old singer’s break-up with Olivia Culpo inspired his new album, ‘Last Year Was Complicated’ and even though he found writing about their split "therapeutic" he isn’t looking to move on with a new love right now.
He told E! News: "I don’t know if I’m really looking for a new relationship at the moment. I’ve been so busy there’s been literally zero time but at this point I’m just focusing ahead."
Speaking previously about how the record helped him, he said: "There’s no better release for me than creating. I just had to do it, I had that instinct. The minute she [his ex-girlfriend Olivia Culpo] left, I was alone in my apartment. I was like, ‘I have to come and get out of the city and write.’
"I came up here [to Mammoth Mountain] with my trusted group of collaborators. Immediately I was OK. I’ve tried talking to people and doing that thing, but I don’t know. [I’m] too in my head and unwilling to open up and get deeper. I feel like the music is the best therapist I’ve ever had."
However, Nick admitted he has no idea what Olivia thinks of the record as they no longer speak.
He said: "I don’t know. We don’t speak. I’ve heard from a mutual friend that she’s heard it and liked it, at least on some level. That’s a thought you have while you’re writing: the person will hear it, but you have to be willing to go there with it."
One track in particular, ‘Champagne Problems’, delves into his split with Olivia and Nick explained: "I’ve thought a lot about whether she’s heard it, and I’m sure she’s heard ‘Champagne Problems’ at this point. The concept of the song, which maybe doesn’t stand out on first listen, is, ‘You’re amazing, you’re all the things I hope to find with somebody, but timing, circumstances, all these things play into it not being right.’ Champagne is amazing; it tastes delicious but gives you a really bad hangover. That’s the idea…"
