Washington D.C. [USA], Apr. 4 (ANI): Bella Hadid just landed yet another magazine cover and nailed it despite going make-up free for her 'laid bare' themed photo shoot. The 20-year-old model covered the Porter Magazine's summer issue and revealed that she isn't so fond of eyes being on her when she's off the ramp, E! Online reported. "It gets really overwhelming. You feel really overexposed and you don't want to see anybody... I just want to be in my apartment alone and kind of retreat and be centered again," she told the magazine. After her breakup with The Weeknd, the attention had escalated. But right now, Hadid only has eyes for herself. "I'm just really focusing on myself, and my work, and just being the best that I can be," she noted. "I'm not really worried about what guys think about me, I'm just trying to be a woman!" In the issue she also recalled her Lyme disease diagnosis that once left her battling to move. She said, "I couldn't get out of bed for six days. My brain would get all foggy, and I couldn't see. That was the hardest time of my life." In addition to her health, Hadid has also had to juggle her runway aspirations with comparisons to her older sister, Gigi Hadid. "People think we're the same and that we've been working just as long, but I'm two years behind her," she said. "I still have a long time to catch up!" Amid conflict between the American government and immigrants living in the United States, the star said, her father Mohamed Hadid was always religious, and always prayed with them, adding "I am proud to be a Muslim."
