Talented actress, model, Taylor Swift BFF, and now, singer Hailee Steinfeld has officially released her first single.

It's a pro-self, #bodylove anthem, rightfully titled "Love Myself."

This song is pop perfection. It's catchy, uplifting, and timely.

But, I've got a quick question: Is this secretly a pro-masturbation anthem?

Let's take a deeper look.

NOTE: I would like to fully disclose that I am 100% in support of masturbation. It's got plenty of awesome benefits and is downright fun. I do it. People know you probably do it. So, yeah. Get off to your heart's content.

Exhibit A: According to directlyrics.com, the song begins with the following lyrics in the first verse:

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

Deep inside

Know how to satisfy

Keeping that tempo right?

Could easily be about dancing, singing, being happy...or masturbation.

Pictures in my mind on replay.

Is this referring to fantasizing? You decide.

Solid evidence. Moving on.

Exhibit B: Verse #2

I'll take it nice and slow
Feeling good on my [own] without you, yeah
Got me speaking in tongues
The beautiful, it comes without you, yeah

I'm gonna put my body first
And love me so hard 'til it hurts
I know how to scream out the words
Scream the words

I see you, Hailee. We all see you, Hailee.

I'll take it nice and slow
Feeling good on my own without you

Slow, fast, it's up to you when it comes to masturbating. Whatever feels good.

And love me so hard 'til it hurts
I know how to scream out the words

But please be sure to slow down if you're hurting yourself, my friend.

Exhibit C: THE CHORUS

Gonna love myself, no, I don't need anybody else (Hey)
Gonna love myself, no, I don't need anybody else (I love me)
Can't help myself, no, I don't need anybody else
Anytime, day or night (I love me)

I don't need anybody else

You're goddamn right you don't, you independent human.

Can't help myself

Okay, maybe have a little bit of self-control in like, a public social setting, for example. But, otherwise, go for it.

Anytime, day or night

You do you, Hailee. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Is this song about masturbation? Probably not. I'll let you be the judge.

Either way, I love it. Kudos, Hailee.
