Nick Jonas To The Rescue: Singer Replaces Iggy Azalea at Pittsburgh Pride

Nick Jonas — who is basically becoming the pop star version of James Franco — has stepped into replace Iggy Azalea as the headliner of Pittsburgh Pride.

Azalea had to pull out a the last minute after a major  backlash against her past use of homophobic and racist language.

“I am sorry to anyone I have offended or disappointed & I wish all my fans and friends participating in Pride the best of luck”, she said.

Too little too late though, and Jonas came to save the day.

“When I heard about the difficult position Pittsburgh Pride was in just days before their event, I knew I had to find a way to help,” he said in a statement. “I’m excited to do what I can to support the LGBT community in Pittsburgh, and I look forward to seeing you this Saturday as we celebrate together.”

Good on you, Nick.
