Hallelujah! Nick Jonas is no longer a virgin MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 20 2014 1:02PM

Holy moly, make sure you're sitting down for this one.

Pop star Nick Jonas has officially given away his V-card and he's gone on TV to talk about it. Hallelujah! Watch the 22-year-old admit to being "an adult in all ways" on the Wendy Williams Show above. Is it getting hot in here or is it just us?

Nick has been dating former Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo for more than a year, but his exes include Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and our very own Delta Goodrem.

So why the big deal? Nick is the last of the Jonas Brothers to have his cherry popped. Joe, 25, also ditched the band's vow of chastity and moved over to the dark side (cue scary music here).

"I lost my virginity when I was 20," Joe confessed in a New York Times column last year.

Kevin, 27, is the only one to have kept his promise, waiting to do the deed with wife Danielle on their wedding night in 2009.

"After we did it, I was kind of like, that's it?" Kevin said at a press conference. The couple now have a nine-month-old daughter, Alena Rose.

But our Jonas fave has to be Nick, partly due to his, erm, distracting underwear shoot for Flaunt magazine.

Drugs, absent Zayn and awkward answers: Is this the worst One Direction interview ever? MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 18 2014 12:28PM

We'll file this one under "too awkward for words".

One Direction went on the US Today show as a foursome, claiming bandmate Zayn Malik was too sick to fly to the US for their new album promo tour.

Host Matt Lauer shot straight from the hip and asked if Zayn's absence had anything to do with those persistent drug abuse rumours doing the rounds.

Watch as Liam Payne gives the most unconvincing answer ever while the rest of the boys squirm in their seats. It's a car-crash moment if there ever was one.

Zayn has since told The Sun: "I'm really angry and upset by what was said. I was really ill at the weekend, that's why I couldn't fly to America."

The 21-year-old said he will join the boys to promote their new album Four when he's "fit enough". Yikes! We hope fans aren't left waiting forever...

Back in May, Zayn and bandmate Louis Tomlinson were caught on video allegedly rolling and smoking a joint in a car during their 2014 stadium tour.

Just so you know, the Twitter hashtag "#GetWellSoonZayn" is trending worldwide, if you want to share your wishes (or conspiracy theories).
