Hailee Steinfeld‘s single “Starving” has been playing on repeat in our heads pretty much since the day it was first released, and as it turns out, we’re definitely not alone.

The 20-year-old singer tweeted this afternoon that the song has made platinum not once but TWICE in the United States, which means she has sold over two million copies. Whoa.

double double with fries is RIGHT. 2X PLATINUM IN THE US BABY! #STARVING @greymusique @Zedd

With a new song as empowering and catchy as “Most Girls,” (listen here), we wouldn’t be surprised to see more record-shattering tweets in her future.

We’re so proud of you, Haiz! Next step? Diamond.

Hailee Steinfeld has had a few incredible years. After rising to fame in 2011 with an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role alongside Matt Damon in True Grit, she’s been taking the film and music industries by storm. Steinfeld led the a cappella crew Barden Bellas in Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015. Later that same year, she made an appearance in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video (alongside superstars like Karlie Kloss, Zendaya, and Gigi Hadid). And now, she has two international hit singles that are packed with empowering vibes: “Love Myself,” and more recently, “Most Girls.”

Mission recently tapped Steinfeld—the first non-professional athlete to star in one of their campaigns—to be the face of its new VaporActive apparel line. “They have world-class athletes as their ambassadors for their brand, and to not be an athlete, but considered alongside them, is truly an honor,” Steinfeld tells SELF. Her new “teammates” include Serena Williams, Dwyane Wade, Drew Brees, Carli Lloyd, Amanda Beard, and Christine Sinclair.

SELF chatted with Steinfeld recently to learn how she fits fitness into her insanely busy life—plus, what her favorite workout is to feel strong and empowered.

Steinfeld tries to fits in exercise wherever she goes by walking, jumping rope, shadowboxing, or even shopping.
Between being on tour for months at a time over the past year, and filming and wrapping Pitch Perfect 3, the 20-year-old has been pretty busy. So oftentimes, she has to get creative with whatever she has on hand in a certain location. “I tend to use whatever is around me to get a full-body workout and if that’s not possible, then I do anything I can do—whether it’s a jog around the city or neighborhood that I’m in, or a bike ride,” Steinfeld says. “If I’m in New York and I want to do a little retail therapy, then I’ll make that my cardio as well.”

“Being active in general has always been a part of my life,” Steinfeld adds. Her dad and uncle are both personal trainers, so she taps them for workout solutions when she’s not sure what to do. “My dad is a personal trainer, so I call him and I tell him where I am and what I have around me and he helps me,” she says.

But when she gets to choose, dancing is her favorite way to work up a sweat.
Being on tour, she’s been able to easily fit in her favorite form of exercise, dancing—both during shows and rehearsals, and during her off hours. “Dancing is something I love to do now, and I get most of my working out in there because sometimes I feel like at the end of long days the last thing you want to do is go to the gym,” she says.

After an especially long day of running around or prepping with her team, she’d rather get in a dance class than try to find a gym. For Steinfeld, the more spontaneous and different the class is, the better. She really likes hip hop and salsa, but says she’s down to try pretty much any type of class when she can fit one into her schedule. (more…)

Hailee Steinfeld hopes she’s next in line to cement a duet with Ed Sheeran after they flirted in the music stakes.

The 20-year-old — linked to Justin Bieber in the past — is on a mission to pin down Britain’s biggest male superstar.

‘One day…’ the Starving singer mused in an exclusive chat with Guilty Pleasures.

‘I love Ed so much. He is amazing and unbelievably talented,’ she added after the pair performed cover versions of each other’s songs at various gigs this year.

Hailee rose to fame at the age of 14 after her role in the Coen brothers’ version of classic western True Grit.

It led to her being nominated for best supporting actress at the 2011 Academy Awards. And she hasn’t given up on scooping an Oscar. ‘I’d love to win,’ she told us. ‘You don’t realise when it’s happening what it means or how big a deal it is… I still pinch myself over that whole experience.’

Juggling acting and music careers, Hailee admits she has had to do a lot of growing up — especially when it comes to combating sexism in the industry.

‘I have seen it time and time again,’ she explained. ‘Maybe it’s been happening for a lot longer than I have been able to understand, but now that I do, it’s important to band together.’

The Taylor Swift ‘squaddie’ proves she is not to be messed with after showing off her fighting skills in the music video for her new single Most Girls, out now.

Hailee warned: ‘My dad taught me how to kick box years ago.’

At age 20, Hailee Steinfeld has taken her first equity stake in a company: Privé Revaux. A direct-to-consumer eyewear company, Steinfeld joins Jamie Foxx, Ashley Benson and Jeremy Piven as partners in Privé. Tapped by founder David Schottenstein, the four celebs have marketed the sunglasses, which retail for $29.95, via their social channels and will join in the design of future collections.

Privé has already got a built-in network of famous fans, from Blake Lively to Lilly Collins and Halsey. In addition to selling direct, Privé also coupled with Amazon to immediately scale, selling its approximately 115 styles via the internet giant.

Steinfeld, who was nominated for an Oscar at age 13 and released her first EP at age 18, is flushed with emotion as she talks with Billboard about the company, her music and her entrée into the Transformers universe in the 2018 release of Bumblebee.

So Bumblebee is happening. What can you tell us about the film?
It’s a prequel and I’m excited about it.

This is animator Travis Knight’s first live action film, and you’ve mentioned that you’re going to be shooting and working on music simultaneously.
Yes, and working with Privé.

Speaking of which, you’ve got capital in Privé. It’s not just a coloration, you’re not simply endorsing. Why did you choose to invest in the company?
There are so many things about this brand and the people involved in this brand that I wanted to have part of. I love that it is accessible to anyone and everyone around the world. I feel like I can wear these sunglasses and feel just as great as when I’m wearing a pair that are five times the price. And when I’m onstage at a concert in middle America, I can offer them to the people in front of me. I feel like style isn’t necessarily dependent on luxury prices, it’s how you feel and how you rock it that makes the outfit.

How did you decide Privé was the company for you?
Honestly, the people involved and the brand itself. As part of it, I represent the versatility and the accessibility that anyone can be whoever they want on any given day, and that to me is so important.

You came from acting, which lead you to music after your role in Pitch Perfect 2. Does that mean you may now become a serial entrepreneur?
It’s so funny to me how obviously different acting and music are, and yet how similar they are. With music, everything happens so fast. A song turns into an album before you know it and you’re touring worldwide. A movie can take months to years to make; right now I’m in between all that. I’ve got my single “Most Girls” out, and I’m working on my next single, which does not have a title [yet]. But it should be out very soon.

How have you evolved as a recording artist?
In the short time I’ve been doing this, I feel like I’ve changed a lot. My first single, “Love Myself”, was the perfect song — not only because it ended up connecting me with so many of my fans who shared the same message I do, but because it was a message I could transition into music, and it helped me get through a lot.

Now I feel like I’m just getting started, and 10 years from now I will still feel like I am just getting started. This is me and this is where I stand and what I want to do. I’m very excited for everybody to hear what’s coming, because even that is very different from what I’m doing now. It’s a constant evolution.

The Pitches are coming back. But you probably already knew that.

Two years after Universal announced the release date for Pitch Perfect 3, the third installment in the a capella comedy franchise, a lot has happened: The premiere date has changed, the director has changed and a few details about the plot have finally come out.

So what do we know now? Glad you asked.
Here’s everything that director Trish Sie (who replaced Elizabeth Banks) and star Chrissie Fit (she plays bass Flo) told us about the new movie when we ran into them at the Crystal + Lucy Awards Tuesday night.

It’s being edited now
Sie (Step Up All In) took over the directing reins from Banks, who directed Pitch 2 and still plays Gail in the movie. Banks “got really busy,” says Sie. “She’s directing Charlie’s Angels (the reboot set for 2019) and is helping to develop it. She’s got two little kids. She’s like, ‘It’s time to pass the baton, I’ve got a lot going on.’ ”

So, Sie took over, finished shooting in April and is currently editing the film. “It’s almost done. It’s great.” The film release date has been pushed from July to December.

The big stars are still in it
The main Pitches are back: Anna Kendrick (Beca), Hailee Steinfeld (Emily), Brittany Snow (Chloe), Anna Camp (Aubrey) and Rebel Wilson (Fat Amy) return.

There are new characters, too
Orange is the New Black star Ruby Rose makes her Pitch Perfect debut, “and she has a great voice,” says Fit.

We’ll learn more about Fat Amy
Why did Fat Amy give herself that nickname? That’s probably something viewers will find out in this movie, which shows “a little bit of Fay Amy’s origin story,” Sie says.

The Barden Bellas aren’t at Barden anymore
“They’re out in the real world,” says Sie. “They go on a USO tour,” likely to support the troops, “and do not stay in the United States. We go all over the place.”

It has songs that aren’t on the radio yet
“Whatever makes me wanna dance, that’s what I go with,” says Sie. She jokes that she and her music team used their “crystal ball” to pick pop songs for the movie that aren’t yet on the airplay charts.

There’s still room for Pitch Perfect 4
“I feel like there’s always going to be room for Pitch Perfect movies as long as people see them,” says Fit. “We’ve become a family, we all love each other.”

Hailee Steinfeld has told Newsbeat she’s got a part in the upcoming Transformers spin-off movie, Bumblebee.

It’s expected next year and, from the title, it’s probably safe to assume it revolves around the yellow VW Beetle bot from the main films. Other than that, details are sparse – but Hailee says filming is starting “very soon”. The fifth instalment in the franchise’s central storyline, Transformers: The Last Knight, is due out on 22 June.

“I am so excited I’m doing the spin-off, it’s starting very soon,” the 20-year-old actress and singer told Newsbeat.

“It’s crazy to think about. I’m a big fan of the Transformers movies and I can’t believe I am going to be in a version of them.”

Hailee Steinfeld made her name in the Coen Brothers western True Grit when she was just 13. Her performance earned her an Oscar nomination and a Bafta award.

Since then she’s appeared in films such as Pitch Perfect 2 and the Edge of Seventeen. As well as acting, she’s also a singer. She released her debut album, Haiz, last year. On top of all this, she’s good mates with Taylor Swift and was once rumoured to be dating Justin Bieber.

“I will be shooting Bumblebee in the States and working on the music at the same time. So we will see how that all pans out,” she says.

“But this movie is really something special. It has a great storyline and this character that I play, who you will soon meet, is really special. So I’m very excited for people to see it.”

We don’t know what part she’ll be playing in Bumblebee yet. We do know that animator Travis Knight is due to direct. It’ll be the first time he’s taken on a live action film.

Hailee performed at Wembley Stadium over the weekend alongside the likes of Niall Horan, Little Mix and Bruno Mars, but opened up about the recent incident in Manchester which killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk backstage at the Capital Summertime Ball about the attack, Hailee said: ‘It has and it hasn’t [affected her], I mean obviously myself and the world is way more aware.

‘But it in no way stops me from doing what I love, I look at how 80,000 people are here today, and they’re all here for one reason, and that’s to be together, to be happy and to let go for a while.’

She continued: ‘To me that’s one of the most special things anybody could ever experience, so I’m incredibly honored to be playing tonight, and other stadiums in the world in front of all these beautiful faces.’

Hailee Steinfeld is in negotiations to star in Paramount’s Transformers spinoff Bumblebee.

Travis Knight, who directed the stop-motion movie Kubo and the Two Strings, is helming the project.

Bumblebee is the yellow and black striped Autobot that appears as one of the main characters in the Transformers film series.

Plot details are being kept on the dark side of the moon, but it is known that Steinfeld will play a tomboy who also holds a job as a mechanic after school. Christina Hodson (Shut In) wrote the script.

The movie project is the first spinoff in what the studio hopes will be a Transformers Cinematic Universe that will include prequels and offshoots from a line of movies that have generated over $3.7 billion worldwide — with the latest one, Transformers: The Last Knight, set to hit theaters June 23.

Bumblebee is slated for a June 8, 2018, release.

Steinfeld made her feature debut in Joel and Ethan Coen’s 2010 remake of True Grit, netting her an Oscar nomination for best actress in a supporting role. More recently, the actress, who is also enjoying a thriving singing career, appeared in Pitch Perfect 2 and has Pitch Perfect 3 wrapped, and last year gained strong notices for her performance in teen drama Edge of Seventeen.

Steinfeld is repped by CAA and Hirsch Wallerstein.
