Bella Hadid opened up about her modeling career in a new cover story with InStyle. The Versace model discussed what she thinks of her haters and her future, as well. Bella may move out of modeling eventually, but she’s proud of what she’s accomplished so far.
“People think modeling is just a bullshit thing to become more famous,” Bella says of her professional success. But, for her, it was a path to financial independence. “I was 100 percent independent by the time I was 18, and I paid for my own apartment. That wasn’t because of my parents. I worked my ass off for two years.”
Despite that, Bella knows people are going to talk smack about her. She revealed that the onslaught of media coverage and social media commentary is a lot for her to handle.
