Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld



The Experience
Hailee Steinfeld debuts her first hit mixing musical and choreographically skill for a catchy summer dance tune. The only missing link is the message. Can you really make it through life loving only yourself?


Music video: The video splices together scenes of Hailee performing on a rooftop with scenes of random people on the street dancing in front of her “#LoveMyself” hidden cameras/one directional mirrors. About half way through Hailee and her backup dancers also join the party and offer viewers a well-choreographed show.


The MeaningLove Myself is about the “no strings attached” pleasure of solo sex (i.e. masturbation). According to Hailee Steinfeld this satisfies all her needs without the complications of bringing someone else into the picture. But does this really give her everything she is looking for? Can we even really call it love? Are there really no strings attached? Unfortunately for Hailee the answer to all three questions is no. Solo sex is just an “escape”, and like all “escapes” it only makes our problems worse in the long run as our hunger for whatever we are lacking grows steadily worse.

Ask yourselfDo I choose the cheap imitation “love” of solo sex instead of seeking real solutions to my loneliness?


LYRICS:

When I get chills at night
I feel it deep inside without you, yeah
Know how to satisfy
Keeping that tempo right without you, yeah

Pictures in my mind on replay
I'm gonna touch the pain away
I know how to scream my own name
Scream my name

(I love me)
Gonna love myself, no, I don't need anybody else
