2015 Sessions > Set 019 [+ 1]
In this week’s issue Oscar-nominated actress, BFF of Taylor Swift and now pop star Hailee Steinfeld speaks exclusively to Grazia.
While on set with the Pitch Perfect 2 star we couldn’t resist asking her to do her own special mash up. Watch the interview with Grazia’s Josh Newis Smith below to see her unbelievable on-the-spot remix of ‘Love Myself’ with Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean.’
Hailee says to Grazia of being part of Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood squad: ‘I can absolutely assure you that each and every one of us genuinely support and love each other. I don’t know that I could be a part of anything that wasn’t real. Especially a friend group. I’m not very good at trying to be something I’m not, or hanging with people for any reason other than getting along with them.’
So what does it take to be in Hailee’s squad? It’s not easy, she warns ‘there is a lot of hazing, it took me a while to get here.’ Hailee says you need plenty of sass and be able to sing slash rap to make the cut.
Hailee was homeschooled from the age of 11, partly to accomodate her audition schedule and she admits to Grazia it was also due to her problems settling in at school. She says: ‘I was eager to meet people and I never considered myself an outsider. I never wanted to be an outsider. But I had a hard time finding someone who wanted to hang out with me. It was a very weird time.’
