It looks like Gigi Hadid is taking a page out of Mean Girl Gretchen Weiners’ book and telling people “You can’t sit with us!”

Okay, we’re exaggerating a bit. Of course, Gigi – an all-American sweetheart – would never actually say that. But the fact of the matter is, she isn’t looking to initiate any new member into her famous girl squad. Disappointed? Yeah, so were we…there go our dreams of becoming besties with the supermodel…

Is Gigi Hadid America’s secret weapon to mend global ties?

Anyway, in an interview for the June/July issue of fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar, the 22-year-old has given a detailed explanation as to why she doesn’t want to make more friends. According to Gigi, a lot of “interesting things in your friends come out” once one becomes famous.

“In a way, its good because it makes you learn that it’s always better to have a few really good friends than tonnes of friends you aren’t really sure about,” Eonline! quoted her as saying. “There are people who understand that I love them and who know that, when I get back to town, I'm going to call them. But sometimes, I can't call every day because I'm in weird places. I've lost a lot of friends because I'll get busy for a short period of time and they're not reaching out. But if I don't reach out, then it's like I've changed."

Her tight-knit group of girls – including her sister Bella, Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift – is all Gigi needs, anyway. "The time I get off, it's not even enough to give everyone I love attention. I'm good with [the friends] I've got.”

It also helps that Gigi is super attached to her 20-year-old Bella. "She's so understanding of the demands of this job, and it's really great that I can talk to her about it. A lot of the times, I feel suffocated by my own work ethic and by the expectations I put on myself," Gigi confessed. "It's really nice when you have people who say, 'It's OK to take time for yourself'."

Guess Gigi’s got herself covered!
