Rather than let speculation run wild, Gigi Hadid has always been one to take control of the public conversation about her body—whether it's explaining exactly how hard she works to stay in shape or calling out her haters when necessary. So while we're not totally surprised that she's speaking out about her recent weight loss, we were shocked to hear the reasoning behind it.

"My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year," she explains in a recent interview with "I have Hashimoto's disease. It's a thyroid disease, and it's now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn't want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that's good."
