Gigi Hadid is riding high on the success of her own Tommy Hilfiger clothes line. She also came to The Ellen Show, striking off one of the things on her bucket list. The 21-year-old actress looked like a besotted guest on the talk show.
Gigi Hadid started off by saying that there were a few things that were on her list when she came to New York for the first time. They were to be on the Vogue cover, to be on Food Network and to be on the Ellen show. Well, the model seems to have done pretty well for herself.
Gigi Hadid Talks About Zayn With Ellen DeGeneres
Gigi Hadid spoke candidly about her boyfriend Zayn Malik as well. She goes on to say that they first met at a friend’s birthday party. Malik was supposed to come to Victoria’s Secret show but didn’t end up coming. Hadid made the effort of going to the after party to look for him but he wasn’t there either. A few days later, they ended up having their first date.
Ellen, being Ellen, prodded on knowing more and asked, “Was he playing it cool like you were playing it cool?” Gigi’s reply came quickly saying, “We played it cool for like ten minutes, and then I was like, ‘You’re really cute’. We connected, like, really quickly.”
Ellen also has a role to play in their love life- well in a way! Initially, Hadid and Malik bonded over videos of Noah Ritter, who was made famous through The Ellen Show. Hadid says, “We have kind of the same sense of humor and started sharing videos.”
Hadid’s Recent Controversy On Racism
Gigi Hadid found herself in some trouble when she was posing with squint eyes while holding a Buddha statue. A lot of hate came her way from the Internet with many calling her ‘racist’. Her boyfriend Zayn Malik also got dragged into the controversy.
Malik did not take all the hate lying down and defended his girlfriend saying that she likes Asians (hinting at the fact that she is dating one). Chloe Bennet wrote an open letter to the supermodel saying that it is not funny to make fun of people based on their race or body features. She says that is inconsiderate of a person like Gigi Hadid with so much influence to not mark her words more carefully.
Gigi Hadid definitely has too much going on in her life right now. Apparently, her Tommy Hilfiger line is already sold out.
