Gigi Hadid has the pre-show jitters before hosting the American Music Awards on November 20. But her adoring boyfriend, Zayn Malik, is there to support her! Zayn’s got the best advice to help calm her nerves, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY!
“Gigi is really nervous. She’s hosted things before but this is 180 minutes of run time! And yes, she has cue cards, but if anything unexpected happens, which it will, she has to be witty and articulate right there on the spot,” the source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Jennifer Lopez hosted last year and Gigi is so intimidated! She’s been a superstar for two decades!
“Zayn is no stranger to panic attacks and he’s giving her tips on mediation and breathing techniques to do before and during the show,” the source said. “And if that fails, she should down a shot of tequila!”
Aww! Zayn’s the best boyfriend! He knows, just like we do, that Gigi is going to nail her hosting gig at the American Music Awards, but he’s got an arsenal of tried and true anti-anxiety methods in case she needs them. Gigi has to trust Zayn on this one. He’s nervous about the AMAs, too! Zayn is attending the awards show, and is stressed about his appearance. He’s been working with a hypnotherapist to get over his fears of being in front of an audience, according to a separate source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Good for him!
Zayn talked more about his struggles with anxiety in his book, saying that his issues were more manageable when he was in One Direction. Then, he had the “safety net” of the band to back him up if things went wrong, but as a solo performer, he wrote that being exposed gave him more “psychological stress.”
