The artist urges others to be more experimental
Joe Jonas revealed that his new song, titled Be Mean, depicts some “crazy” experiments he once experienced in the bedroom. The singer now confesses that he thoroughly enjoys “whips and leather” and even urges people to be more daring and spice things up a bit more.
The DNCE artist explained to PrideSource.com: “Some people say, ‘We finally can talk about these kinds of things, and we want to go wild and crazy,’ but really, it’s just stuff we’re going through. I feel like I’m free in my life to speak about it, and yeah, everyone should try a little bit of something new in the bedroom.
It’s definitely fun when you bring some whips and leather and whatever you may be into – a little bit of S&M – into the bedroom. I wrote it about me and someone I was getting wild with, and maybe (we) busted some outfits out – you know, you get a little crazy. It’s a fun song, and I hope people can have fun with it and learn from it.”
And Joe has recently experienced increased interest from gay men via Twitter. While he undoubtedly rejects any advances, he also takes it as a compliment.
He said: “I’m seeing it just through DMs. It’s quite funny. But I take it as a compliment. It’s cool. At the end of the day, for me, it goes back to the music, and DNCE has done a lot of cool concerts, like Pride shows. We have a lot of gay fans, and we love that they’re so supportive, so hey, if that makes them happy, it’s all good.”
The 27-year-old artist says people sometimes question his sexuality simply because he has embraced his feminine side.
He shared: “I’m in touch with my feminine side. Look, I love fashion; I love to dress well. I love certain things like that. And I have a lot of gay friends, as well, so that could probably point them in that direction. But again, the gay community is something that is close to my heart, so I don’t mind. Hey, if they wanna think I’m gay, it’s fun.”
