Actress Hailee Steinfeld’s Masturbation Anthem Tickles Our Ears
The Academy Award-nominated actress has a sultry song for you.
Hailee Steinfeld is 18 now, and the fiercely talented young actor who blew us away co-starring in 2010’s True Grit has taken her intensity to pop music.
Steinfeld’s ode to masturbation, “Love Myself,” may have dropped a little late to be the song of the summer but listeners are, as the song says, already feeling love for the track “deep inside.” Rocking a black leotard emblazoned with the words “Self Service,” Steinfeld declares: “I’m gonna put my body first/And love me so hard ’til it hurts.”
“Love Myself” is currently on Billboard/Twitter Top Tracks at no. 21 and Billboard reports it is 96 on their Hot 100. With, in Fusion’s words, “obviously and unabashedly singing about female masturbation,” Steinfeld has brilliantly captured our attention in her debut as a talented songwriter and singer in her own right. We can’t wait to see what she, uh, does next.
