UPDATE 12:33 P.M. EST: Nick tweeted the following, confirming he is single and The Sun story was taken out of context:
Over the past few months, Nick Jonas has been in the news a lot and not just because he's got an album coming out in a few weeks!
Ever since last fall when the littlest Jonas brother was rumored to be romantically linked to Kate Hudson, there has been a ton of chatter about the singer's dating life!

Back in February, the 23-year-old looked like he might be moving on from Kate with Phil Collins' daughter, Lily Collins!
As recently as just a few weeks ago, the Chains singer shut down any rumors and told Ellen DeGeneres that he was single — despite being seen with Hudson a week earlier!
Well now we've got a new EXCITING update in Nick's love life as he was recently a guest editor for Bizarre and talked to The Sun, confirming he's taken Lily out!
The musical stud opened up about dating Collins, saying:
"We went out a couple of times. She is amazing. We have known each other for years, just running in the same circles."
Demi Lovato's BFF went on to say:
"I've enjoyed meeting different people and spending time with people with all the cards on the table. All people need human interaction at some level. And at my age too, dating is important, getting to know yourself by meeting different people, seeing what it's all about."

We're not sure what this means for the pop singer's dating life, but we do know he sure doesn't seem completely over Kate — whatever may have happened — as he gushed about the actress saying:
"Kate is amazing, she is a great person. You spend five minutes with her and understand who she is and what she's about. She has a beautiful spirit. She is lovely."
HIGHlariously, there's ANOTHER woman that captured the hottie's attention — none other than Rihanna! Nick admitted his infatuation with the singer saying:
"I flirted with Rihanna once. It didn't work – but it didn't not work. It didn't go anywhere but it was a great conversation. It laid a good foundation."
Hmmm, a foundation for what?!
He did go on to say:
"She smells amazing, that is one thing I can tell you. Everyone says it but I have actually smelt her now and it's amazing."
So if you ever get a chance to meet RiRi, make sure you smell her. LOLz!
We're definitely interested to see if Kate or Lily stick around in the Jonas brother's life, but regardless, it sounds like he's just having fun and enjoying himself. You do you, Nick!

NJ also talked about his interactions with Justin Bieber and his feelings on what the Sorry singer is going through after footage popped up online of Biebs throwing a fan's gift out of car window in Argentina. Jonas shared:
"I saw him at the club. When I walked over we poured tequila shots for the fans in the front row. No one is seeing that. It is a bit of a thing he is going through. My interaction with him was all very positive, so I feel for him. I think he is a good person."
Nick's also very aware that being in the spotlight, a similar situation could happen to him as he revealed:
"We all go through tough things. I could crack one day and do something that isn't necessarily the best."
Talk about a good head on your shoulders!
Make sure you pick up a copy of Nick's new album, Last Year Was Complicated, when it drops June 10 and always come back to keep up to date on all his juicy dating news!
