The 19-year-old actress and singer opened up to the magazine about the positive response she’s gotten from her song “Love Myself” and how important it is to have self-confidence in a judgmental world.
“I’ve had girls come up to me and say, ‘Thank you for this song and this message, because it’s something that I needed to hear.’ Regardless of how they interpreted it, that’s all that matters to me at the end of the day,” she explained.
Hailee added, “It’s something I need to remind myself of — how much power it is in being able to love yourself. It’s so easy to forget that we live in a world that is so judgmental…I think if you can start with yourself and have that self-assurance and that self-confidence and love, then you’re good and you’re set.”
Hailee‘s issue of Ladygunn hits shelves on April 1st and can be pre-ordered now.
