Gigi Hadid Explains Why She and Zayn Malik Are the ‘Worst’ Neighbors to Have
Gigi Hadid has an unusual way to wind down at the end of the night.
The model, who graces the cover of the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, reveals that she and boyfriend Zayn Malik can get pretty loud when they’re chilling at her New York City apartment after a long day. Just how loud? Well, let’s just say Hadid isn’t afraid to admit that her neighbors might find her to be the “worst” person to have around.
“I love to sing Broadway show tunes at home, which makes me the worst neighbor but is a good stress reliever,” she confesses. “I love ‘Popular’ from Wicked. That’s the only one I’ll tell you because I know at some point, someone’s going to ask me to do this and that’s the only one I’m willing to do publicly.”
She adds, “My boyfriend gets into it too.”
As someone who frequents the Big Apple, Hadid says she now has her go-to spots when hunger strikes. Contrary to popular belief that models barely eat, the 21-year-old admits she loves chow down on a burgers and dessert.
“My favorite places in the city are the South Street Seaport or any skyscraper-type view, just to look over the city. There used to be an Emack & Bolio’s on Houston, which is my favorite ice cream place—I love the Grasshopper Pie—and I would walk past it to the gym every day, but one day it was closed and I almost cried. Now I’ll just Postmate pints of it to my apartment,” she says. “If I’m going shopping, I would go to Saks because I want it to be all in one place. I also love Topshop.”
She adds, “My personal motto is ‘Eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane,’ so if I’m in the mood, I’ll go to JG Melon in the West Village.”
As for how she stays fit, Hadid credits having an active lifestyle as her way of maintaining her figure.
“I rode horses and played volleyball back home, so when I came to New York, it was really hard for me to just go to the gym,” she says. “I need to have a sport and wake up and want to get better at something and boxing does that for me.”
