Nick Jonas breaks silence on his split from Olivia Culpo

2015-06-26 17:00

Los Angeles - Nick Jonas is ''still getting used to'' success.

The Jealous singer who recently split from Miss Universe beauty Olivia Culpo - has admitted he still finds fame hard to deal with.

When asked about his international success as both a solo artist and part of the Jonas Brothers, he said: "(The fans come from) all across the spectrum I think. There's no way to really define the age group of the fans.

"People that come up to me and tell me they like the music are far from what it used to be. I'm still getting used to it."

The 22-year-old singer also admitted he hopes his new music will "break down perceptions" about him.

He added to Entertainment Weekly: "The great thing about songs that a large group of people can connect to is that, it sort of breaks down some of the walls of feeling like they can't like it for whatever reason.

''That's been the big goal this last year and a half, to break some of the perceptions down and rebuild.''

Meanwhile, Nick previously admitted he didn't think fame was "real" when he was younger.

He shared: ''People actually caring who you are dating at 14 is not a normal thing. But my parents are really good people, and they did a good job of helping us keep our heads on straight.

''But also, I think I had a really interesting outlook about it, I never really thought it was real. I just kind of [thought], 'This is all make-believe and I get to go and sing, and that's all I really care about.'"

Nick also opened up about his break up with Olivia Culpo.

The singer said he enjoyed "a great two years" with his ex-girlfriend. However, he has refused to reveal why they decided to call an end to their relationship, but confessed he doesn't plan on getting into another one anytime soon.

He said: "I wish the best for her in the future and we had a great two years."

Asked about his dating future, the 22-year-old singer said he is simply "focused" on his career.

Speaking to E! Online, Nick said: "I don't know, it's too early. I'm focused on my work and that, to me, is the priority right now."

Although Nick was coy about the break-up, a source recently hinted it could have been caused by his work commitments and the fact they were '"long distance".

The source explained: "This has been a sensitive matter and both of them still love and care about each other and only want the best for one another.

"The long distance and ups and downs have been weighing on the two of them lately and it has not been easy but they know this is the best decision for them at this time."
