VIDEO: Gigi Hadid Prefers Zayn Malik's Solo Music Over One Direction!

Gigi Hadid is a gorgeous, very busy supermodel who will also be co-hosting the 2016 American Music Awards, so she had a lot to talk about when she stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live for an episode that aired on Wednesday (November 9).

Besides the AMAs, Gigi , 21, also talked about voting in the 2016 Presidential Election, her latest fashion projects, and her boyfriend of almost a year, Zayn Malik.

Gigi dished that before the power couple started dating, she wasn’t a huge fan of his music while he was in One Direction!

“My stepdad was kind of a classical music producer,” she told Jimmy Kimmel, referring to her mother Yolanda‘s ex-husband, music producer and Grammy winner David Foster. “Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban … so that was the music that I was into.”

“I think we can all name a One Direction song that we like,” she added. “But, maybe not. I love Zayn Malik solo a lot more, I think.”

    Well duh

  • Gina

    Name dropping Zayn to promote herself as usual.

  • Suzie

    She only replied to Kimmel’s question and didn’t say much. And she’s super famous in her own right. I don’t see your logic.

  • Gina

    You don’t have logic, period. You don’t think they screen questions with the guests before they go out on stage? If she didn’t want to talk about Zayn, they wouldn’t have asked her about Zayn. This is the second interview in as many days where she talked about him. She’s obviously using him to promote her upcoming AMA hosting duties. She thinks having a musician “boyfriend” justifies why she was asked to host. It’s so transparent. Many people didn’t know or care who this chick was before she started “dating” Zayn. Her social media followers increased rapidly in the short time since they started this PR stunt. So gimme a break.

  • Suzie

    Gigi hosted award shows before she hooked up with Zayn, e.g. MMVA in Canada in 2015. Being a host isn’t easy, she wouldn’t have got the job if she wasn’t able to do it and didn’t have so many followers. She was A-list before she met Zayn.
    If they want to use their relationship to boost their profile, why not. They’re free to do what they want and they’re both winning at the minute.

  • Gina

    LMAO! She CO-HOSTED the MMVA’s with Ed Sheeran & she was only relevant because she was dating Joe Jonas and was bffs with Kendall. She uses people to get ahead. These people are the reason she has so many followers. She benefited from the PR stunt with Zayn WAY more than he has & they are only seen together when they have something to promote. It’s pathetic and fake. In a recent interview she got Zayn’s ethnicity wrong, and just the other day she told people to give Trump a chance, the same man who hates Muslims like her “boyfriend” Zayn.

  • Suzie

    I don’t understand why you’d hate someone you don’t actually know. Gigi was way more relevant than Joe Jonas was at the time. He was a has-been back when they were dating, she was ascending. She’s known Kendall since they were kids – all those Hollywood kids know and hang out with each other.
    And she said she was deeply disappointed that Trump won, and that she voted for Hillary. She’s hoping for the best, and is trying to remain optimistic.

  • Gina

    I don’t need to know her to see that her actions are disgusting and attention-seeking. Gigi is a social climber who got rid of Joe for Zayn because he was more famous and could get her more social media followers. She hasn’t known Kendall since they were kids, they’ve known each other since Kendall starting modelling more seriously which has only been a few years. She knows that her and Kendall’s friendship gets her attention, just like Zayn does. She got Kendall’s birthday wrong and Zayn’s ethnicity wrong which tells me she doesn’t truly give a damn about these people beyond what they can do for her fame-wise. It’s not a coincidence that she only talks about Zayn or posts about him on social media when she has her own projects to promote. It garners her more attention that way. Every time she is papped with Zayn, she posts on her social media something about her clothing line on the very same day because she knows people will go to her social media page at an increased rate whenever there are pap pics of her and Zayn together.

    Her saying anything positive about Trump is a slap in the face to Zayn and his religion which has constantly been attacked by him.

  • Khazija

    I prefer Zayn’s solo music as well. Mind of Mine was a such a beautiful and profound album. It is Grammy-worthy. The media has to spin everything with a certain negative slant, don’t they?

  • Suzie

    Either way, I don’t believe all these people, Joe, Kendall and Zayn are that naive and stupid, and would let Gigi use them like you’re implying. Joe got more from the relationship than she did. He was a total has-been until she started hooking up with him and he was photographed with her partying with Swift, Cara D., etc.

    With Zayn, when he launched his album she was everywhere with him, at his interviews, release party, iheartradio gig… She takes, sure, but also gives. They’re all in it together and have been far too long in this business to let others use them unless they’re getting something out of it.

  • Gina

    Fame-wise Kendall didn’t really need Gigi, Joe had more social media followers than Gigi when they started so she did use them to get exposure. But yes, Joe did benefit & now he’s on to his next beard. Gigi sure as sh*t has been using Zayn, though. My problem is that Zayn’s music is put on the back burner just so he can play Gigi’s arm candy. She’s benefited far more than he has. Her team even used him to promote members of her family. How disgusting. When he released his first single there was a lot of buzz around him which is why she was seen everywhere with him, to get some of that attention. Record labels coerce artists to get in PR relationships so I have every reason to believe that Zayn was less enthusiastic about this arrangement than she was, especially since he’s notoriously a private guy. Staged paparazzi pictures are not usually his style & he looks miserable doing them (PS Zayn & Gigi are signed to the same PR company, which is more proof that this is a PR arrangement).

  • Suzie

    Zayn self-financed his album to have full control. I doubt his record company could coerce him into a PR relationship. Why would RCA only make Zayn do that? Why not their other artists? He only looks uncomfortable with all the flashes from paparazzi. When they walk through airport lobbies without all the flashes he looks happy and relaxed.
    If it’s PR, it’s his own decision, he’s not coerced.

  • Gina

    Gimme a break. Zayn didn’t self-finance a damn thing. He’s not an independent artist, he’s on a major record label & the record label does the financing, that’s how it works. There’s no point being on a major record label if you’re just gonna finance the project yourself, that makes no logical sense. Also, the singer Tinashe is with RCA & she recently did a brief PR stunt with Calvin Harris, so please learn your facts. The record label expects to get a return on their investment, they think the publicity generated from a PR stunt will help them do that. It happens all the time. Zayn has bosses higher up that he has to answer to, his hands are tied.

  • Suzie

    lol all you could come up with is that Tinashe’s stunt that lasted a whole 3 days?

  • Gina

    Bitch, I don’t study every RCA artist. Do you? The Tinashe stunt was short-lived but it was still a stunt, so what’s your point?? I noticed how you didn’t comment on any of the other major points in my comment, probably cuz you can’t. You’d need a brain for that.

  • An

    Zayn does make better music than 1D ever did, so what’s the big deal?
