Nick Jonas threw Justin Bieber some major shade when he played “Guess The Bulge” with Sugarscape earlier this week.
The recently beefed up singer and Kingdom actor has been revealing his own bulges of late to promote his new music, and didn’t seem to mind at all being asked to identify his celebrity contemporaries using photos of just their packages.
Jonas did a pretty good job of walking the line between gamely “playing along,” and not looking like staring at pictures of male crotches was something he regularly feels inclined to do.
Naturally, Nick was familiar with his own bulge, which was the first picture. But he couldn’t identify One Direction’s Harry Styles’, Liam Payne or 5SOS’ Ashton Irwin’s male bits. But he did “nail” Zac Efron’s.
However, one bulge — or rather, dress-style — made identification a mere formality.
It was, of course, Justin Bieber.
When Jonas was shown a photo of the Biebs’ bulge, covered in black Calvin Kleins and red leather pants, which were obviously sagging beyond the point of reason, the “Jealous” singer pulled no punches.
“This looks ridiculous,” he noted, while looking at the shot of Justin’s low-hanging pants.
Nick added, “It’s Justin. That’s a clean give-away. Only one person in the world would look that ridiculous.”
Many will agree. But it is also pretty funny that Bieber’s habit of wearing his pants so low has made him so iconically identifiable.
Meanwhile, Jonas recently dished up secrets in a new Details magazine photo shoot, on how he bulked up for the DirecTV series Kingdom, in which he plays an MMA fighter.
“It’s been fun to change my physicality,” the 22-year-old admitted. “I had about six weeks to put on 12 to 15 pounds of muscle before filming started on Kingdom. Diet had a lot to do with it. I went from consuming about 3,000 calories a day to 4,200!”
Jonas continued, “Breakfast was usually an omelet with veggies and cashew cheese, a turkey-meat patty, and some fruit; lunch and dinner would be lean protein, veggies, and nuts; snacks consisted of things like snap peas with peanut sauce.”
His physical feat is all the more impressive because Nick suffers from type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease which he was diagnosed with at 13. He has to take synthetic insulin to regulate his body’s blood glucose levels.

“Wilderness” is the title of his latest song released from his November 11-dropping new album, and is a seriously catchy and less poppy outing than predecessor “Jealous.”
And over in Justin’s neck of the woods, the 20-year-old recently showed off his ice-hockey goal scoring skills earlier this week, in a video posted to his Instagram.
Lest we forget, some vintage low pants riding from the Biebs.
