Zayn Malik began dating American supermodel Gigi Hadid last November, and initially, the news was met with hostility from fans of Zayn’s former fiancé, Little Mix Star Perrie Edwards.
And that is of course because soon after he quit One Direction – in March of 2015 – Zayn ended his romance with Perrie…
At the time, it was claimed he’d done so by text message. He later refuted that, but this week, Perrie has insisted that he did in fact end their romance in a text.
But happily, Perrie now seems to have moved on and has reportedly found love again with Our Girls and Musketeers actor, Luke Pasqualino…
However, as mentioned above, when Zayn first began dating Gigi, she copped some (unfair) flack from Zerrie fans. But as time’s gone on, Gigi is now more loved than ‘hated’ by Zayn Malik fans.
Which is great news because from everything we’ve seen of her, she’s a great girl!
She isn’t at all what you might expect a supermodel to be in that she’s down to earth, fun and generally speaking, she’s defying each and every cliché there is about ‘dumb blonde’ models.
And this week, while speaking to W Magazine, Gigi has even candidly confessed that she knows she’s “not great” on the runway, or catwalk as we Brits call it.
You can see a clip of Gigi discussing that below, and in the same interview, she was asked about her first kiss.
Gigi replied, “I was like 14 or 15, and we both had braces…
“It was horrible and awkward. There was lots of metal happening…
“I was happy to wait a while for our next kiss.”
Later on, Gigi addressed the subject of girl-crushes, and having initially confessed to a crush on Rihanna, she changed her mind when told that lots of other people say their girl-crush is on Rihanna too.
Gigi said, “Everyone says Rihanna? Ok then, Beyoncé…
“Beyoncé just has a beautiful presence. You see her on stage and she’s… Beyoncé!
“And then, in person, she’s quiet and shy and classy. And beautiful and calm…”
So it’s fair to say then that Zayn Malik might have some competition!
