Gigi Hadid has admitted that she was not a fan of Zayn Malik’s boyfriend One Direction.

The stunning model has made the confession on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live!

She told the host she prefers her beau as a solo artist and she ‘can’t name a One Direction song she likes.’

The 21-year-old has clearly given his solo career her stamp of approval, though, as she appeared in the steamy music video for his debut Pillowtalk.

When Jimmy asked Gigi about Zayn, screams come from the audience and she began to smile but when asked about One Direction she said ‘I grew up in a household that, my stepdad was a kind of classical music producer, Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, so that was the music that I was into.

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

But while Zayn, 23, left One Direction last year, it seems his days in a boy band may not be over.


The singer could be set to star in an upcoming television series all about the formation of a group.

He is currently teaming up with Law & Order’s Dick Wolf and his wife Noelle Wolf to help produce a scripted show called Boys, which is based on the formation of a successful boy band, and now he’s decided to take on a role.
