Story of Song

Jealousy. He’s dating former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, and when they first hung out someone made a comment to Olivia that made Nick turn red in the face. In an interview with MTV News, Nick said: “I’m with my girl and some other guys are looking at her and I was like, ‘I’ve just been training for three months how to be a real fighter for a TV show and I could hurt you now.’ It was a moment when I was like, I’ve got to write about that because the fact that I got so passionate about it so quickly means that there is a song there.” Olivia Culpo told Ryan Seacrest: “The first time I ever hung out with Nick there was actually an incident where somebody did make a comment to me. He had not said a single thing the entire night, except this guy said something to me and Nick turns around red in the face and says, ’What did you just say?’ So I was actually not that surprised.”
