Nick Jonas doesn’t need “Chains.” His grip over gay men is a powerful one. Our obsession with the pop star-turned actor just keeps growing with no sign of slowing down anytime in the near future. Even openly gay celebrities who usually have a fan base of their own that fawn over them are jumping on the Nick Jonas bandwagon and expressing their admiration for the hunky idol.

In an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show to promote his new variety series Best Time Ever, Neil Patrick Harris revealed Jonas was his celebrity crush during a hot seat segment with the talk show host. Harris was not shy about confessing he has Jonas fever since husband David Burtka is already aware of it, and he even joked that the singer was “really good-looking before it was kind of allowed to think he was good-looking.”

“You kind of had to wait til he turned … 19 to 20. Then you’re like ‘What is happening?!’”

The Tony and Emmy award-winning actor is not alone when it comes to crushing on the youngest Jonas Brother. Fashion stylist Brad Goreski also gushed about Nick in an interview with HuffPost Live stating that Jonas would be his ideal guest co-host on Fashion Police. Goreski is a self-proclaimed “Nick Jonas superfan,” but also admitted that his fandom has turned him into a “total sweating weirdo.”

Aside from his burgeoning legion of adoring gays, Jonas has another reason to be celebratory. The heartthrob turns 23 years old today. Happy birthday, Nick Jonas! We’ll gladly help you blow out your candle anytime.
