On Feb. 5, Cody Simpson not only released the official music video for ‘Love,’ but he also raved about his own love life with model, Gigi Hadid. In an exclusive interview with HollywoodLife.com, he revealed the secret to making their relationship work and the craziest thing he’s ever done for love.
Gigi Hadid, 18, is a lucky gal! The Sports Illustrated model recently went public with her relationship with Cody Simpson, and he revealed to us exclusively that while she lives in New York and he lives in Los Angeles, they are both “motivated to make time” for each other.
Cody Simpson On Gigi Hadid: ‘I’m All In’
At 17, Cody knows a thing or two about romance. He just released the official music video for his song “Love,” and in a new interview he told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that he will do whatever it takes to make his relationship with Gigi work.
“I’ll literally text, call, fly do anything to make it work,” he told us about being across the country from Gigi. “I have so much going on that it’s busy to balance relationships, but it’s really worth it. I’ll literally travel as long as it takes. When I’m into a girl, I’m really into her. I’m all in or I’m all out.”
So, it sounds like he’s really into Gigi — who just landed her first shoot in Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition.
“She’s getting busier by the day, with her Sports Illustrated shoot, and she’s doing a lot of runways next week,” the singer told us. “I’m usually in the studio 12 hours a day. We’re motivated to make time. If you’re motivated, there’s always time that can be made. She’ll come to LA, I’ll go to NY, she’ll jump on tour for a little bit. If I have to take a six hour flight and be there for one day, and come back, that’s enough. We make it work.”
Cody’s Romantic Valentine’s Day Plans For Gigi
So, with Gigi being a model for SI and Guess, she’s doing a ton of flirty photo shoots — and he’s got millions of girl fans. So, does jealousy interfere with their love?
“No not at all! I mean we’re both just happy for what we’re doing,” he told us. “We both have great things going on in our lives. That’s what works. It’s pretty balanced with what she’s doing and what I’m doing. We’ve got respect for each other. We don’t really get jealous — we have to be around other guys and girls for work, and all that stuff. But we both know that we have each other as long as that trust’s there.”
He added that they won’t be spending Valentine’s Day together since they’re both busy, but he’ll fly to New York a few days after.
“I’ll probably do some sweet things, send her some things, but as far as actually being together, I’m going to see her a couple days late,” Cody said. “We’ll plan some sweet things. I’m trying to come up with smooth things to do this time! I think [I’ll do] a little serenade of the song that I’m writing. I’ll do that!”
It’s no surprise that he’s a sweet guy — when asked what the craziest thing he’s ever done for love, he told us he sent six dozen roses to a girl once and they filled up her whole room!
Ok, so could he be any more adorable? Gigi is a lucky, lucky girl! Watch his new video for “Love” right here and make sure to tell us what you think!
