Nick Jonas: Miley Cyrus has an 'awesome persona'

Nick Jonas says Miley Cyrus has an "awesome" persona.

The 'Chains' hitmaker has praised his ex-girlfriend for her creativity and is looking forward to seeing her team up with Woody Allen for a comedy series.

He shared: "It's been a while since I spoke to Miley, but I think that the persona is awesome and I think that she is living proof that you can continue to evolve as an artist and a creator.

"And I'm a huge Woody Allen fan, so I'm looking forward to seeing the show that she's doing with him."

The 23-year-old singer also defended the Disney Channel - where both he and Miley initially developed their showbiz careers - over criticisms of how the company treats their stars, insisting they have given him a "good perspective on work ethics".

When asked by a fan what may surprise people about working for the Disney Channel in a Reddit AMA, he explained: "As far as one thing people don't know, I think the main thing is that it does actually give you good perspective on work ethics.

"People confuse being a young Disney star with just the pressures that you face which is one piece to it, but it's more than just that."
