Bella Hadid covers the new Glamour and…wait for it: she actually seems like a real, live human being! Yes, I’m being serious.
Usually Bella looks surly, and will talk about modeling and differentiating herself from her big sister Gigi Hadid. But this interview actually has a bit of humanity. You can read the whole thing (including the author creepily witnessing Bella dancing) here. But here are the highlights:
On fame:I don’t walk down the street like, “I’m famous.” It’s still weird to me when people ask for pictures. My close friends from high school keep me grounded—they don’t care about what I do. I’m still the same person I was, and I try hard not to change.
On traveling/working alone:Even though you’re in Paris and London, at the end of the day, you come home and you’re by yourself. Sometimes I break down and cry. But once I am done with a full month in Europe, I step back and think, I’m so lucky.
On her relationship with Gigi:we’re definitely a lot more similar than people think. We have the same voice, the same mannerisms. Sometimes we’ll finish each other’s sentences, or we’ll be the only people laughing. We’ve always been close. As kids, especially on weekends, our mom would drive us to the barn at 6:30 A.M., and we would spend the day together riding our horses, and washing and cleaning them.
On dating The Weeknd:I’m dating Abel. I don’t see him as the Weeknd. I’m proud of the Weeknd and the music he makes, but I really love Abel.
See what I mean? Like a real, live human. Who would’ve thunk it? And likeable, to boot!
