Gigi Hadid appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Nov. 9 and talked about a few different things including boyfriend and ex-boy band member of the boy band, One Direction, Zayn Malik.
One thing Hadid talked about was that she prefers boyfriend Zayn’s solo music than the music he made with the band, One Direction. Hadid also talked about co-hosting the 2016 American Music Awards with SNL alumni, Jay Pharaoh.
According to the Toronto Sun, Hadid says she hopes that if Malik wins new artist of the year, she will not be the embarrassing girlfriend for being excited for him.
She says her main goal is to not be nervous after rehearsal because if she is she is afraid she will mess up during the awards show, and to not be the embarrassing girlfriend if he does win the award.
Speaking of hosting the awards show, she says if she is nervous before rehearsal, she should be fine but if she is nervous after rehearsal, she is afraid she will really screw things up on stage.
Hadid also says that the main reason she was not into her boyfriend’s music when he was with the band was because she grew up in a classical household. This is mainly because she grew up in the same house as her stepfather, David Foster who was a classical music producer. They listened to music by Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban.
Hadid appears in the music video with Malik in his new song, ‘Pillowtalk’ and says she really loves Zayn Malik solo a lot better than Zayn Malik with One Direction.
Zayn Malik left One Direction in March of 2015 and has had a lot of success on his own since then. In fact,’Pillowtalk’ and his debut album, ‘Mine of Mine’ have both hit the number one spot in seven different countries.
