Nick Jonas has stunned fans by revealing he no longer wears the purity ring he and his brothers once swore they’d never take off until they were married.
The singer/actor, who celebrated his 22nd birthday on Tuesday, insists his values haven’t changed but he no longer feels he has to advertise his virginity.
Jonas tells The Huffington Post, “This is… not something I’m doing anymore. But I’ve got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life and that’s all that matters.
“I’ve had an incredibly intense journey with faith and religion and my own growth. My belief in God is still very strong and important to me as a person and I think that’s all that should matter. I grew up in a church environment and still have love for the church.
“What’s important now is my relationship with God, and that I not judge and that I not be judged.”
The former Jonas Brothers star celebrated his birthday by debuting the music video for his new solo single, Jealous, which features his beauty queen girlfriend Olivia Culpo.
