The sexuality of the three Jonas Brothers -- Joe, Nick and Kevin -- has been speculated about for some time now -- and their latest decision to pose for gay magazine "Out" might add fuel to the fire in some people's minds.
However, the musical trio sought to clarify the rumors surrounding their sexual orientations this week in a question and answer session accompanying the steamy new photo shoot.
An excerpt from the interview reads:
Joe: We have a lot of gay friends and gay fans. It’s a boy band stereotype; people assume, but we don’t take offense.
Nick: Prior to us being a band, I was a super theater geek. I loved theater and I still do, and I care about fashion, and I care about a lot of things that I feel like stereotypes are attached to.
Joe: [Being in 'Out'] is a moment for us for sure. We keep saying, 'Well, it’s about time.'
