We still do, but we were in love with each other. For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn't fun.”

  • Miley tells M Magazine Nick saved her life: “I was on tour with the Jonas Brothers last year and I kept getting really sick. One night Nick stopped by my room and I wasn’t feeling great. He suggested that I test my blood sugar like he does, since he’s diabetic. I did, and my blood sugar was really low, it was bad! After that, I went to my doctor to get really checked out. I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia, which means my blood sugar was always really low and I couldn’t get it back up I became much more aware of the food I ate, because what I was eating before was pretty bad for me. When I’m on tour it can get bad. I’m constantly exercising so much on stage that I get really thin! Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, it can be too much. My body just burns through the food I put in it so fast. When that happens, I make an effort to only eat healthy meals and chill out with the exercise. Watching Nick manage his diabetes over the years has been a real inspiration to me. It makes me feel like, ‘If Nick Jonas can do it, I can, too!’ I have to keep going and put on a brave face.”

  • Selena and Nick break up and Nick speaks to Germany’s Bravo Magazine about his relationship with Miley: “I'm very disappointed in Miley. I can't see the good in her taking the relationship public. The song [7 Things] and her behavior makes me really sad. We promised at the time that the relationship was just a thing between us and that nobody else should know about our love. And now this! But, fortunately I have my brothers, Joe and Kevin. They helped me deal with it. ... She's a very important person in my life, even though she’s not my girlfriend anymore. We have something special and I don't want to lose it.”
