Cody Simpson On Gigi Hadid’s Risqué Shoots
Gigi went completely topless for V magazine in February and was all over the page of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition. And for Cody — he knows he’s a lucky guy!
“I love them!” Cody told us, laughing. “She’s dope. She’s amazing — she’s obviously one the youngest Sports Illustrated models out there, she’s doing a lot of high fashion stuff now. Just to be able to see her doing her thing is great. She’s such a cool chick.”
Gigi and Cody started dating in Spring 2013 so it’s been almost a year — and she finally starred in one of his music videos! They splashed in the water and even made out in his new video for “Surfboard” that premiered on April 14. It was much more mature than what we’re used to!
“I’ve done a lot of growing up. I’ve been in a serious relationship,” he told us. “There’s much less boundaries to what I’m doing, and the music I’m doing. This is the beginning of a new sound for myself,” he told us, adding that it was definitely easier doing it with Gigi.
Cody On Filming ‘Surfboard’ Music Video With Gigi: They Had To Make Us Stop Kissing!
“It was natural to have someone that I have natural chemistry with,” he said adding that the song was written about her, and that most of his music is about the woman he’s in a relationship with. We could definitely see that chemistry come across in the video!
“The video has a very sexual element to it, it is very sexy,” he added, as if we needed a reminder. “We had a couple of scenes where we kissed in the video and they had to tell us to stop when the cameras weren’t rolling!”
Ok, that’s kind of adorable right? Well, we’re expecting to see more. Cody told us that this was just the beginning for his new style of music and that his next album will be out at the end of summer or beginning of fall.
And yes, we’ll still be seeing him strumming that guitar!
