“Girl power to me, means being strong and independent, and being supportive of other women. I think the best advice for girls who want to be powerful… it really requires believing in yourself, trusting yourself.”

"I somehow feel the insane love Cory and I had for each other morphed into this strength that I have right now. There’s just something about knowing he’s watching everything I’m doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him."

He [Cory] was such a fan, you don’t understand. He would be like, “You’re going to be a pop star! What are we going to do? Are we going to, like, go on the road?” He would say, “This is going to be big!” And I’d be like, “I don’t know.” He heard every song and gave me his notes on everything. He loved “Battlefield.” I’m getting chills thinking about it. I would say “Burn with You” was his favorite. He came into the studio that day.

Jon: When we carved our names in the theater, you said something so sweet. I still remember it because it meant so much to me.
Lea: Are you going to cry?!
Jon: A little bit.
Lea: What’s wrong with you? Get it together!
Jon: You said “I would give up this entire experience for our relationship”
Lea: It’s so true. At the end of the day I would most certainly give up Spring Awakening, which was the greatest experience of my life, to have met you.
