Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid dated for two years, and now he reveals how he really feels about her since they split in May last year.

ET spoke with Cody on the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, where he opened up about seeing Gigi in the limelight with her new boyfriend – former One Direction member Zayn Malik.

“It’s just kind of the natural way things go. You’re going to expect that kind of stuff,” Cody says. “I’ve kind of been going a different way, taking a little time for myself just hanging out and keeping it low key, and working on my music.”

“But I’m always very happy for her and her career and that type of stuff. I know how hard she’s always worked to kind of get to the point in the modeling industry that she’s at now, and I couldn’t be more proud of her. We still talk every now and then. It’s nice.”

Meanwhile, Cody has been working on new music material – heavily influenced by his journey of growing up.

“I’m writing a lot about the development of a growing man. Developing your own sort of personal philosophies, ideologies, perspective on the world and everything — just kind of really trying to sort of understand myself. And I think the best kind of works and lyrical content come from your most solitary moments.”

Sounds deep, Cody!
