Zayn Malik Revealed Why His Relationship With Gigi Hadid Is So Strong

by Taylor Ortega

Inadvertently or intentionally, Zayn Malik is kind of a feminist.

In an interview with ELLE UK, Zayn praised girlfriend Gigi Hadid, citing the Sports Illustrated model and social media queen's intellect as her most valuable trait.

He shared,

She's super intelligent, I think that's why it works so well. And we do the same type of job so we get that with each other.

The 23-year-old “LIKE I WOULD” singer also made sure to mention his mother, Tricia, and his sisters, Waliyha, Safaa and Doniya, as sources of strength.

Zayn told the magazine,

I enjoyed the womanly influence. I have a lot of respect for women because of them. They are so strong, powerful and do everything themselves. When I go back to Bradford they treat me exactly the same. It's why I only ever go back for a few days, otherwise they have me taking out the bins.

That's right, Zayn. You take out that trash. You take out that trash and then you dismantle the patriarchy in the name of every woman you respect.
