Nick Jonas replaces Iggy Azalea at Pittsburgh Pride

Nick Jonas has replaced Iggy Azalea at Pittsburgh Pride.

Iggy was scheduled to perform at the June 13 parade but pulled out after facing criticism for her past use of homophobic language.

Jonas contacted the event organisers himself, according to Billboard, and expressed an interest in performing.

“[Nick] has been a supporter of the LGBT community, and he wanted to make sure that the community and Pittsburgh had a Pride event that they could be proud of,” a statement read.
