Hailee Steinfeld *perfectly* covers Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself”
Hailee Steinfeld has already proven to us that she can do anything she sets her mind to. After all, by the time she was just 13, she was nominated for her first Academy Award for her role in True Grit. But when she revealed that she can really sing, too? We were totally blown away. Not only are we in love with Hailee’s own music, like her amazing girl-anthem “Love Myself,” but her covers are pretty great as well — such as her rendition of James Bay’s “Let It Go.” Now, the 19-year-old star has covered Justin Bieber’s song “Love Yourself” — and we like it just as much, if not more, than the original.
In a recent appearance on the Australian radio show “Hamish & Andy,” Hailee got down with an acoustic cover of the Biebs’ hit. Although Justin’s version sounds so sweet, the lyrics to “Love Yourself” are actually pretty vengeful (“My momma don’t like you and she likes everyone” and “And when you told me that you hated my friends / The only problem was with you and not them” — ouch). Hailee reminded us what “Love Yourself” is really all about by adding a bit of her own bite and oomph into the song. We’re totally feeling it, and so are her fans!
Oh, how we love you, Hailee! Check out her full cover of “Love Yourself” below, and be prepared to be immediately addicted. We’ll be listening to it on repeat until the end of time.
