Gigi Hadid Has Spent So Much Time Around Zayn She Thinks She’s British Now

Communication Breakdown Gigi Hadid Tries To Prove She Can Understand Zayn's Accent featureGigi Hadid is in the U.K. prepping for a massive launch of the Fall 2017 line from Tommy X Gigi. While there, she stopped by the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw on Tuesday morning. Joined by Tommy Hilfiger, Gigi got grilled by Nick in a quiz game based on Zayn Malik’s northern accent. The host played clips of common northern English phrases for Gigi to decipher.

She fared pretty well, offering up the “California girl” translations to prove she’s a good listener. While she’s obviously been trying to Americanize Zayn, it seems like their cross-Atlantic relationship has them both rubbing off on each other. She’s even learning how to cook a proper English roast.

Liam Payne Doesn’t View Former One Direction Members As Competition

Liam Payne Dishes On Competing With One Direction And His Acting Aspirations featureLiam Payne recently sat down with Scott Mills and Chris Stark for an interview with the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show. The One Direction singer opened up about his domestic life with his baby mama Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and discussed new music.

“I needed a bit of down time to get away from it all,” Liam said, explaining what he was up to as the other members of 1D were dropping new solo music. “I had a lot to do at that time.”

Things Got Real Awkward When Harry Styles Was Asked If “Two Ghosts” Is About Taylor Swift

Harry Styles reveals whether Two Ghosts is about Taylor SwiftHarry Styles’ promotional campaign for his debut album has come full circle. When the singer premiered his first single “Sign of the Times” he gave the first interview to good friend Nick Grimshaw and he has returned for another interview discussing the tracks from “Harry Styles” once again with Nick.

The BBC Radio 1 host attempted to get Harry to confirm the rumors that the song “Two Ghosts” is in fact about Taylor Swift. In the most awkward way Harry did nothing to answer the question, but did a good job of being philosophical. “I think it’s pretty, like, self-explanatory,” he said. “I think, y’know it’s about sometimes things change and you can do all the same things… and sometimes it’s just different, y’know?”

No, Harry, people don’t know so Nick just decides to just introduce the song to listeners by calling it “the one about Taylor Swift” leading Harry to scream “ahhhh, oh no” while on air.

Watch the interview and Harry’s reaction to the Taylor question below.
