If you want to talk about that graduating class of 2008, I'm really proud—it's a really good group," says Nick, who dated Miley and Selena during that era."Regardless of some of the history between us in different ways, there's a general strength and empowerment that we all feel, still being in the mix and being in a good spot.I still think its one of the best pop songs of the last 10 years.And you know, she's always been outspoken and authentic to who she is, so it was only a matter of time before she really owned that, and I'm proud of her...Anyway, you’re not alone Nick.” He dodged her comments with a laugh and replied, “I’m never alone. In the magazine's annual "Summer Must List" issue (on newsstands now), the 23-year-old pop star speaks candidly about his Disney Channel days.It's a lot like watching your high school crush do well, just on a bigger scale."While Miley is no longer in his life, Demi is.
The two were seen together multiple times at the beginning of this year– going out to dinner and on more than one casual date.It's a cool thing."Speaking of Miley, Nick confesses, "I don't have a relationship with her now really, but that's not because we have any bad blood—we just sort of run in different circles." Still, he's proud of Miley's musical evolution."It's pretty great, because I love 'Wrecking Ball' so much.Unlike some of his peers, Nick has only good things to say about the network that made Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas and Demi Lovato world famous superstars."There's a camaraderie there, a sort of unspoken brother- and sisterhood.
