Though Hailee Steinfeld made a name for herself in the acting world with movies like Pitch Perfect 2 and True Grit, she's still a newbie when it comes to the music realm. In a new interview with Vogue, Steinfeld chatted about her first EP, Haiz, which comes out on Friday, and the great advice Taylor Swift gave her about breaking into the industry.
"One of the first things [Taylor] told me was, 'You’re going to have to make a lot of decisions—make sure it's you that’s making them,'" Steinfeld told Vogue. "And at that time, I was obviously very thankful for that and I nodded my head yes and we went on to our next conversation. It wasn’t until I had to start making decisions that I realized how many people are involved and how important it is that my decisions are being made. And I always think back to when she told me that."
