Gigi Hadid Opens Up About Her Famous Lifestyle
We all dream of being famous. The lifestyle, money, celebrity friends and not to mention the Instagram followers you'd have.
However there are many downsides to that life and in a exclusive interview Gigi Hadid has opened up about her life and fame. If you follow the 22-year-old supermodel on social media, you know she is constantly jet-setting from one country to the next, walking runways, posing for campaigns and hanging out with her boyfriend, sister and close group of famous friends.
In an exclusive interview for the June/July issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Hadid opened up about her fame, her insane schedule — “sometimes I feel suffocated by my own work ethic” — and the close circle of people she associates with these days.
In addition to the paparazzi and travel that come with her glamorously exhausting job, Hadid said her lifestyle has affected her friendships, too. When you become more high-profile she says,
"A lot of interesting things in friends come out. So in a way it’s good because you learn that it’s better to have a few really good friends than tons of friends you aren’t really sure about. There are people who understand that I love them and who know that when I get back to town I’m going to call them, but sometimes I can’t call every day because I’m in weird places."
"I’ve lost a lot of friends because I’ll get busy for a short period of time, and they’re not reaching out, but if I don’t reach out, then it’s like I’ve changed."
She also talked about her modeling. Gigi Hadid admits she still gets anxious on the job, especially when she’s walking a runway.
“I’ve really been working on trying to get better and to learn from every show, so I take it as a learning experience, because I always want to do my best. But I think it’s always going to be nerve-racking for me,”
“There’s always a little thing, like the shoes [are tight] or the dress is heavy or whatever, so that’s what you’re focused on, to make sure your walk is going to go well.”
Hectic schedule and loss of friendships aside, Gigi Hadid is definitely thriving these days and it appears she and boyfriend Zayn Malik are doing better than ever.
