From Chanel catwalks to dressing in vintage Versace, Bella Hadid has become a fashion icon and supermodel. But apart from being the face most women will show their plastic surgeons and men fawn over, Bella has also become an icon of liberation for Palestine. But in a recent interview with GQ, she opened up like never before on her determination to help her hometown.

“I realised that I’m not on this earth to be a model. I’m so lucky and blessed that I’m in a position where I can speak out the way that I do. And really, the downfall is what? That I lose my job?” she said in the interview. For others, it wouldn’t be considered a risk to stand up against oppression in their hometown. For Bella, the risks are much more magnified, because her hometown is Palestine, a country many fear to stand up for in the public eye.

It’s clear that Bella has reshuffled her priority list: and Palestine is right at the top. Bella shares this sentiment with several other Palestinians who feel as though they have nothing left to lose, and that losing that brand partnership or being terminated from your steady job is just no longer something we won’t comprise. Yet, our determination to Free Palestine has now become the thing we cannot compromise.

Her interview with GQ comes before she makes her very first acting debut, as a “weirdo girlfriend” in season three of the Emmy-nominated TV show Ramy. In the interview, it was revealed that the crew gifted her with a T-shirt that said “Free Palestine,” a sentimental gesture she cherished.

Frankly, we can’t wait to see these two on our screens together. The third season of Ramy will be released on September 30th on HULU, yet it’s still not confirmed if it will also be released on OSN+ on the same date.
