Zayn Malik Talks All About Gigi Hadid in 'GQ' Cover Story!

Check out Zayn Malik on the cover for GQ‘s July 2018 issue!

The 25-year-old solo artist talks all about Gigi Hadid, the Met Gala and more in the new issue. Here’s what he shared…

On the Met Gala, which he’s attended once: “The Met Gala is not necessarily anything that I ever knew about or was about. But my [former] stylist…would say to me, ‘This is really good for you to do.’ And no matter how strong you are mentally, you can always be swayed to do certain things. Now, it’s not something I would go to. I’d rather be sitting at my house, doing something productive, than dressing up in really expensive clothes and being photographed on a red carpet.… To do the self-indulgent Look at me, I’m amazing thing on the red carpet, it’s not me.”

On Gigi: “I’m really thankful that I met her…We’re adults. We don’t need to put a label on it, make it something for people’s expectations. I had a very negative outlook on things [while recording my first solo album]. That might have been adolescence or testosterone or whatever the f*ck was running through my body at the time. She’s helped me to look at things from a positive angle.”

On Gigi’s Met Gala look: “I get it, and I understand that people gain enjoyment from it…Gi stole the night, though. The stained glass on her dress. Everyone else just put a cross on.”

On paparazzi: “That’s my promo. I come outside, they take photos. They stay outside and do all the work! You can get pissed off about it, and be like, ‘Yo this is a hindrance on my life.’ Or you can use it for your own benefit and be like, ‘Well, if they’re going to take the photos, then let them.’”
