Nick then stepped in and gave this quote. "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." He is right. There are stereotypes attached to loving theatre and fashion but that doesn't really answer the question. I don't care if the guy is gay or not and they are not trying to be Disney guys any longer so why worry about what Disney has to say or the fans they brought over from the past. People love good music whether it comes from someone who is gay or not.
I'm not saying Nick is gay I just think the entire trio is afraid of saying the wrong thing or taking a step out of place because this is going to be the last time they have a chance to have a huge publicity push behind an album. After this it will be side projects and a solo album every few years until they finally give it up and head on tour with Miley and Justin when they are all in their 40's.
