Cody Simpson is not only a tween pop star, but is also one of the stars of season 18 of ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars. While Simpson may have some rocking moves, his girlfriend Gigi Hadid reportedly warned him not to shake his hips too much for dance partner Witney Carson.
According to People, Simpson shared that girlfriend Gigi did tell him to keep his hips to himself, but it was all in good fun.
“Has she teased me? Not necessarily,” Simpson said, in reference to his signing on to the show in the first place. “She’s like, ‘Don’t move your hips too much in front of [Witney].’”
Dancing With The Stars is known for its romance rumors according to the Examiner. So would it be all that surprising for Cody Simpson’s girlfriend, 18-year-old Gigi Hadid, daughter of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, to tell him to keep his hips to himself? Not really, though Simpson has stated that it was all in fun. Gigi even came to watch her man shake his hips alongside Witney Monday night.
“It was great,” Simpson said. “I had her, I had my grandparents here from Australia, and I had my whole family here. It’s nice to have that support from the loved ones. I love my family and obviously my girlfriend, so we had a great time.”
Cody told reporters that preparing for Dancing With The Stars has been “more nerve-racking” than his typical performances. “You have three people watching your every move. You have a lot of people in the room and then millions of people behind the lenses. It’s a lot to take in.”
Cody Simpson has been a very busy little pop star not only working on ABC‘s hit show, but also working on and releasing hit new single “Surfboard”.
According to MTV, Cody’s new single was inspired by his love for surfing and his girlfriend, Gigi. With his new record, Cody reportedly wants to try experimenting with different different sounds.
“I feel like I’ve grown so much so rapidly right now and improved so much so quickly that I made a promise to myself to never let anyone hold me back,” Simpson said. “And that’s what I’ve been doing this time just taking total control of everything. And do my very best to do something that was totally me and totally from my mind and totally unique.”
