Hailee Steinfeld Sends Positive Message with Debut Track “LOVE MYSELF”

Aside from the obvious message about self-love, Steinfeld addresses being body positive with “Love Myself” better than Meghan Trainor was able to do with “All About That Bass”. The difference between Steinfeld’s take on being true to oneself and Trainor’s take is that “All About That Bass” still focuses on what others, particularly boys, think of you. Steinfeld ignores that entirely and focuses on what … Continue reading Hailee Steinfeld Sends Positive Message with Debut Track “LOVE MYSELF”
