Nick Jonas was seen leaving his New York City apartment to head to the airport on Wednesday (August 22). The 19-year-old gave a little gesture of acknowledgement to photographers as he got into his car. He’s still keeping the buzz cut look he first showed off in May.
Rumored to be a potential new judge at American Idol he recently told the Huffington Post, “[There’s been] lots of speculation … it’s something I would like to do if it was right, but it’s got to be right on both ends. It’s an ongoing discussion, but as soon as we know if it’s right … we’ll see. But regardless of whether or not it happens, my most exciting thing at this moment is being back with these guys.”
He added, “I would be the youngest [judge], but I’ve also been a professional musician for about eight years of my life. That’s a major question: Would you be okay to criticize? If I can help someone be better, that’s the ultimate goal, not putting them down or making them feel irrelevant. As much as we are going to get along, there still is a bit of tough love there, which is important.”
In the meantime Nick is getting ready to perform with brothers Joe and Kevin Jonas for a one-off concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York in October.
