Cody Simpson was all smiles with girlfriend Gigi Hadid at Kari Feinstein’s Pre-Academy Awards Style Lounge on Friday.
Cody and Gigi have recently gone public with their relationship and Cody is thankful that his fans have been supporting the two. The 17-year-old chatted with Fuse News recently about why he couldn’t keep his girlfriend of eight months—model private any longer.
“I recently got involved in my first serious relationship. It was something that seriously meant a lot to me,” Cody shared. “Almost too much to really keep it a secret.”
He continued, “My girlfriend is the sweetest girl. I was kind of nervous at first to see how people would react to the fact that we were together. From what I’ve seen, the majority of the fans are very supportive of me. If she makes me happy, then my fans are happy, so it’s a good thing.”
Cody added that his relationship is inspiring new music. “The songs I work on, in general, are usually reflective on what’s important in my life at the time,” he says. “With how important the relationship is in my life, I wrote a lot about experiences that I have had with her and girls in general.”
