We got a chance to talk to the gorgeous Calvin Klein model and ex-boyfriend of Halle Berry at NYC’s trendy Fashion Night Out. He opened up about his budding music career AND the skinny model trend!
Gabriel Aubry is more than just a pretty face — he’s a talented musician too! Gabriel, 34, most famous for being one of the highest paid male models in the world, and the father of Halle Berry’s adorable daughter Nahla, 2 — tells HollywoodLife.com that he wants to record an album. We sat down with the Canadian native to discuss his life outside of modeling, Sept. 10, at Bloomingdales’ Fashion Night Out event.
“I’ve always been passionate about music,” he says. “And it’s an interest I want to keep doing.”
The well-known model and current face of the high-end Charisma bedding line, released a Latin-inspired album in 2008 called Cafe Fuego Vol. 1, named after the restaurant he owns in NYC’s hip East Village.
“I was working on a second album … separate from the restaurant … it’s good music,” he says. “I’d love to collaborate with John Mayer because he’s an amazing guitar player … we are still looking around and looking for people … it would be nice to have collaborations like that.”
Gabriel, who’s photographed almost everywhere he goes, wants you to know that despite being famous, he’s just a regular guy.
“I guess I don’t really live the life as a model,” he says. “I don’t live it like most people do. I play sports like any other guy, I play music, go to restuarants and movies. I don’t stay confined in my own house.”
But when it comes to modeling there’s one thing he does admit — he’s not a fan of the fashion industry reverting back to using skinny models in their fashion shows!
“I like curvy myself. I thought the skinny thing ran its course,” he says. “I like the curvy … they are real women.”
We definitely have to agree with Gabriel on this one HollywoodLifers!
