All that gaybaiting does wonders for a career…
Nick Jonas is one of the hottest male pop stars in the game, but he's apparently also one of the most talented.
That's because at just just 23 years old, the Close singer is already being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame!

In fact, Nicky will be receiving the Hal David Starlight Award at this year's event in New York City on June 9 for his exemplary work on Nick Jonas and Last Year Was Complicated.
Songwriters Hall of Fame co-chairs Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff confirmed the news in a joint statement on Monday, saying:
"Nick Jonas is one of the brightest and most versatile young talents on the American pop scene. A veteran of recording, television, movies, and Broadway success… he has been making his cultural mark in a variety of ways for more than a decade. Nick has literally grown up in public, and that growth is reflected in his songwriting and singing. He is a wonderful choice for the Songwriters Hall of Fame's Hal David Starlight Award."
What a prestigious achievement!
But if you're thinking 23 is too young to be honored with something so grand, you may be surprised to know that Taylor Swift, Drake, and Alicia Keys have all won the same award in the past.
Congrats again, Nick!
