Gigi Hadid: “I feel suffocated by my own work ethic”

40F97E1F00000578-4560558-image-m-91_1496267306154 - Gigi Hadid: "I feel suffocated by my own work ethic"

On her work ethic and how sister Bella gets her:

“She’s so understanding of the demands of this job, and it’s really great that I can talk to her about it. Because a lot of the time I feel suffocated by my own work ethic and by the expectations I put on myself. It’s really nice when you have people who say, ‘It’s okay to take time for yourself.’ I’m so excited about the jobs when I get them, so grateful, and it’s my dream to be doing this. But I think anyone in this industry will tell you you’re lying if you say that the constant traveling isn’t hard.”

… says Gigi.

She pretty much can do whatever she wants. I am sure she never struggled paying rent or had to work 12 hours as a waitress with managers being rude to her. If traveling first class is her biggest struggle she doesn’t have it too bad! And she doesn’t even have to do that ! I fee like some people just like to feel busy to feel important but in all honesty she doesn’t HAVE to work probdbly or much at all

Oh please Gigi. What’s hard is working 10+ hours a day on a physically and/or psychologically demanding job for minimum wage that hardly pays the bills (and instead of travelling too much you won’t even get to travel at all!). What’s hard is, like me, having a degree and being on your way to finishing your second one, not even knowing if you’ll actually ever have a decent paying job because your country is a finantial mess. But I’m not even mad that she says things like this, she comes from a rich family, it’s not like she ever had… Read more »

I get what she means, but remarks like these will always elicit an eye roll from anyone who’s had a “real job,” aka a thankless, unglamorous, tedious job like most of us have had at some point– it jsut amazes me that these girls will never understand what that’s like and continue to complain about the private jets, gowns, early morning photoshoots LOL. It’s all about perspective I suppose…

i do agree with what you are saying, but also agree with her that constant traveling must be tough. i would miss my friends and family / significant other and my kitty cat lol and then i feel like your body gets out of whack when you arent eating regular meal times or having a consistent sleeping schedule… thats usually when i get sick .. so that aspect of their job does sound difficult to me

True, and her comment sounds kind of dumb. But on the other hand I’m sure that even the “best” and easiest of jobs have its downsides. For being a model it’s the constant travel, being away from your home, constant jetlag, dealing with catty jealous models, having your every flaw pointed out and zoomed in on, pressure to be thin etc. Obviously it doesn’t compare to a really miserable or hard job, but I’m sure it has it’s own frustrations and she’s entitled to mention them as long as she doesn’t put other people’s work down. And yes, constant flying… Read more »

Nah, she’s got a dream ‘job’ and flying first class is really easy. Most women her age might be travelling for fun and adventure and they wouldn’t be flying in luxury. Also, her sister might have undercut her argument about the vagaries of the modelling life: jumping off a yacht doesn’t look too taxing to me. Lol. Gigi, if it’s all too hard stop doing it and get a regular job like the rest of us. Yeah, thought not.

Eh. Even when they aren’t working, the Hadids seem to often be on vacation on their own. It’s not like they would be spending time with their family if they had more time. They also don’t go through the same route as normal models. They don’t have to audition for their jobs and the designers don’t point out their flaws to their faces. They are under public scrutiny but so is every other model. They’ve never been told they don’t fit the clothes. The designers just fit the clothes to them when they were heavier. As for traveling, i’m sure… Read more »

Yeah, eating disorders are hard work. I’ll give her that.

Yeah, I’m not even trying to be a dick. I did print modeling in my early 20s and it really just enabled an eating disorder I already had. But it was the hardest part of getting and keeping jobs, making sure I didn’t gain weight and stayed a 0-2. I don’t have a famous or rich parent, so I never had that to fall back on. Otherwise…modeling is not so hard.

Sara
Guest

yes, i has a very short career as a model too. most never actually get any work and most are much more motivated and better looking than gigi. she’s so out of touch if she actually thinks her connections aren’t the reason she is successful. if not shed just be another one who got a few jobs and burn out in a year.

Kendall Jenner saying that she wants Audrey Hepburn to play her in a movie because they’re both pretty and talented. That one was… yikes.

Oh, honey. Not sure if you’re vapid or just hangry.

Sure, it’s hard. Few things in life are actually easy, a fact maybe lost on those born into privilege. But, as many commenters pointed out, a lot of things are a lot harder.

Tucking a sweatshirt into high waisted jeans is horrible on everybody, don’t care who the hell you are.
This girl wouldn’t last last 20 mins in a real job.

I get what people are saying but she’s not comparing her work with other work, or saying how much harder she works than people in other fields of work, so I feel like the critiques in the comments are unfounded. She’s at least working a job she has interest in, and that to me is somewhat commendable. You have tons of rich people who just party and stuff. Yes modelling is vain, but to say it’s easy is also a tad misguided.

Sarah
Guest
Sarah

I know, right? I was surprised by how negative the comments were. Yes, she has an easy life and there are much harder jobs that some people have no choice to take. But she’s not saying anything otherwise or putting anyone else down.
Spread kindness, people, not negativity.

I wasn’t surprised lol. It’s a similar mentality like when mothers slam single women who claim how tired they are, and tell them “pfft, you don’t know what tired is, try being a mother!” Pretty annoying tbh. It’s that aura of competitiveness and I just find it so ugly.

I know this job is quite glamorous and everything but I just got back from travelling (not for any glamorous reason) everytime I try I end up losing weight, my skin breaks out , gets dry, I can’t sleep right for days – I love traveling and understand how much of a luxury it is, but regular travel genuinely is quite exhausting and hard on the body. I’m sure the first class helps lol

I imagine it’s even harder when you’re starving your body of the nutrients that it needs from food and the over exercising to maintain a very unnatural size for your body.

I get that travelling all the time is boring and that there are high expectations on how a model should look… But I’d rather be exhausted in a nice hotel, business class on plane or in new beautiful cities everyday and be yelled at by a photographer instead of a petty bitter manager. But I guess we all have our struggles.

Carrie
Guest
Carrie

And also if she is that exhausted she has the luxury of cutting back on jobs OR not doing it at all!!! So if travel is sooo hard maybe she should take a job in cosmetics at Bloomingdales or work at an office job or waitress or charity work ! She can do whatever she wants !

Sara

if you’ve ever flown first class on an international plane that is not hard work!! heck id rather live in a first class seat than my own house lol

 I struggle to cry for her. Props for working when she really doesn’t have to, but complaining about it being hard… gurl. These “hard working” insta girls would get hosed out 15 minutes into a real job.
