The star is trying to steer his focus towards the more positive things in life

Nick Jonas is disappointed his songs Close and Bacon won't be competing for MTV Video Music Awards prizes next month (Aug16).

The 23-year-old singer failed to land a single nomination when the categories were announced on Tuesday (26Jul16), and he turned to social media to share his feelings with fans while on the road with another snubbed artist, Demi Lovato.

"Disappointed with the fact Close got no love for the #VMAs2016," Nick tweeted.

Jonas' Close promo grabbed headlines all over the world when it was released in March (16) for its racy content - Nick and his duet partner Tove Lo set tongues wagging after locking lips in the steamy music video.

However, despite his disappointment, Jonas refuses to let the VMAs nomination snub get him down, choosing to instead to focus on the positive things in life.

He added: "Actually after thinking about it more there are so many amazing things happening in my life and career. 9 out of 10 boxes are checked... Won't let this one thing get to me. I'm feeling so inspired and grateful these days. Gonna focus more on caring less about the small stuff... Everything is awesome."

Nick and Demi weren't the only acts surprisingly left off the nominations list - Taylor Swift didn't pick up any mentions.

Beyonce leads all artists with 11 nods for Lemonade, a career high, while Adele follows with eight for her Hello and Send My Love (To Your New Lover) visuals.

The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards will take place in New York City at Madison Square Garden on 28 August.
