At just 20 years old, Swedish pop sensation Zara Larsson has already made a name for herself as an outspoken songstress known for her frankness, positivity and penchant for going after what she wants. Zara wears a robe by Catherine D'lish and earrings by George Keburia. Brian wears a suit by Avtandil and vintage hat. Brian wears vintage shirt and trousers by Jean Paul Gaultier. Since then, though, Larsson started a new relationship with British model Brian Whittaker after tweeting out his picture and asking who he was, a thoroughly Millennial method of courtship that fans and publications have earnestly declared the start of a "modern day fairytale.
So right now I'm working on my new album and it feels really good. I was in the studio everyday writing a whole bunch of songs and then spending time in the studio.
Is it difficult to maintain a relationship with your totally different schedules? I feel like it should be, but it's not. I'm so lucky because my boyfriend's dad is a pilot, so he can get tickets anywhere. Also because he's a model, he has a very flexible job, so if I'm in LA, he can go to LA and do a casting there. I'm so and thankful that he's making a lot of sacrifices for me.
If he didn't, and his dad wasn't a pilot, I honestly don't know how it would work. I kind of recently feel like, this is actually for real, you know what I mean? It still feels like new love, but it's also very nice to have that sense of real commitment. I've never been with someone that actually wants to be with me.
It's really nice to just feel loved. And because all my friends and family are so close to me, it's always important that someone I'm in love with gets along with them. And he really does.
I did have a boyfriend on and off for four years. I wouldn't say it was trash, but it wasn't this. I would never do a photoshoot like this, with my ex, for example.
But with me and Brian, it just felt natural like of course!
Why not, I'd love to. I don't think I'd bring my ex to the studio, but I bring Brian all the time. We just feel really natural and good together. Modern, modern; we met online. Dating rituals of the american male brian was this super cute boy I saw on my timeline on Twitter, and then I found his Instagram and I retweeted the picture with, "Excuse me?
Who are you, where do you live? But he was very cute still. This was two and a half years ago, and he was like, "Well, let's meet when you come to London. We just didn't vibe. AI don't care how cute your face is, if we don't vibe, we don't vibe. He was walking for some shows and I was there doing press.
And I was so lonely one night, and the guy that I wanted to see didn't answer. I was like boy, my face is beat, my hair is looking cute, my outfit's nice, I'm not staying in!
So then I saw Brian was "Dating rituals of the american male brian," and I was like, "Hey, do you wanna go out with me? It was like, damn, wow, he's a man now. Two years for a teenage boy — a lot happens. It was just different. I felt like, "Ooh, he's funny, wow, I really like him. Zara Larsson on Instagram: In society it's always seen as — usually you're with an older man, and I think that goes back to the fact that the men are the ones making the money and they can basically pick and choose the beautiful women they want, the more money they have.
Like they're the providers taking care of the And I feel like, it's I never saw myself dating a younger guy, but if I was two years younger then no one would give a fuck. In general, I'm usually the one who thinks of things. If we're going to go out to dinner, I'm the one to book the table. I'm such a foodie, so basically he follows me wherever I want to go. We also love to go to museums.
Not because we love all the museums, but because we love to feel like people who go to museums. You know what I mean? But honestly just a nice dinner is so underrated. I would imagine it would be a lot of love songs, but strangely enough it's like, really hard to write love songs.
But I don't know if I would've liked it if I wrote it today. I don't know if my record company would've been like, it's beautiful! It's a timeless, classic song, but also I feel like everything has to be so cool these days. Most of the songs I'm writing right now — they're not specifically about my ex, but I do take inspiration from that.
But every time I play songs for Brian he's like, "Oh, another song about your ex, great! This is going to sound cheesy, but I just can't express my feelings in words for him. Oh my gosh, I can't believe I just said that. Briana Gonzales Set Assistant: Subscribe to Get More. You May Also Like. Music All Eyes on Madison Beer.
