Bella Hadid Talks Career Goals, Life After Dating The Weeknd

By

Since Bella Hadid and The Weeknd broke off their relationship last November, the pair have taken opposite paths in the dating world.

The Weeknd is currently seeing singer Selena Gomez, of course, and the pair have been photographed hooking up in damn near every country on Earth.

But Bella Hadid appears as free as a bird, and the 20-year-old opened up about her dating life after The Weeknd, as well as her rising career and her battle with Lyme disease.

In an interview for PORTER magazine's summer issue, Hadid spoke about the struggles of constantly being in the spotlight, even when she's off the runway.

The 20-year-old said,

It gets really overwhelming. You feel really overexposed and you don't want to see anybody... I just want to be in my apartment alone and kind of retreat and be centered again.

Bella Hadid also opened up about prospective partners after dating The Weeknd.

She said,

I'm just really focusing on myself, and my work, and just being the best that I can be. I'm not really worried about what guys think about me, I'm just trying to be a woman!

Preach, girl!

Hadid also opened up about her battle with Lyme disease and how, at times, she struggled to even move.

The 20-year-old said,

I couldn't get out of bed for six days. My brain would get all foggy, and I couldn't see. That was the hardest time of my life.

Holy hell!

As part of her interview with PORTER, Bella Hadid dished on what it's like being compared to her older sister, Gigi Hadid, 21.

She said,

People think we're the same and that we've been working just as long, but I'm two years behind her. I still have a long time to catch up! I think I've gotten more used to being around people. I used to get so nervous doing interviews. I'm a very sensitive person.

The pair walked together in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris this past November.

Finally, Hadid opened up about her Muslim roots and her dad. She said,

[Mohamed Hadid] was always religious, and he always prayed with us. I am proud to be a Muslim.

Get it, Bella!
