It must have been hard for Cody Simpson to see his ex Gigi Hadid dating Joe Jonas barely a month after they parted ways. Being the low-key person he is, we never got to hear his side of the story until now.

"I love my ex-girlfriend, I always will. It was an amicable, mutual decision, and we still talk every now and then, but the highly publicised thing made me uncomfortable," Cody said in a recent interview with DuJour. "Going out to dinner and there being all this paparazzi and stuff....as soon as we split I had the realisation that I was straying away from who I was as a whole person. I want to keep it low key and focus on my music."

The 18-year-old Aussie singer just wants to be a normal dude, everyone. Give him a break. He'd rather do "stupid stuff like surf and get drunk and jam for hours". Guess that lifestyle doesn't fit in with Gigi's, does it?

"I feel like at 18, you're half of someone else, as opposed to all of yourself. You're still figuring yourself out," he added. Also Cody is not getting together with Selena Gomez.

"You know, as far as public perception goes, if you get seen with some people one time, everyone thinks you're in that group," said Cody. "But when it comes to hanging out with friends on a daily basis I never really see those people. I went through a phase where I was pretty good friends with Selena, and it just got kind of weird, because I just try to be nice to everyone. Anyway, I don't necessarily see those people very often."
