"The way he would look at me and the things he would say to me were really amazing. He was so supportive of everything I did. He loved being a good boyfriend. I got to do more with him in the time we were together than people do in their whole lives. We saw the world together. We have amazing memories. I’m so thankful for him for really letting me know how beautiful I am inside and out. I felt so unstoppable. He set the bar very high. And I’ll take that with me for the rest of my life."
"I couldn’t have made this album without Cory. I finished it in June. He heard every song except for Cannonball and If You Say So. And I listen to the album now and I’m like oh those drums were in there because he said to raise them at that point, and he suggested this. Every week I would record the songs, I would come home, and we would go into our car because it had the best sound system. And we would listen, and we would like take notes and he really helped me with the record so, so, so much. He was such a genius when it came to music, so I really- I owe a lot to him."
"Moving on won’t be easy, she realizes, particularly with a fan base that is so invested in hers and Monteith’s love story. Does she think she’ll feel guilty when she gets together with someone new? “I honestly don’t know,” she says slowly. “I’ve only had serious relationships so it’s an adjustment putting myself back into a place of being alone. And I was under a Cory Monteith spell,” she explains. “It’ll take time to readjust my mind and I’m really not wanting to do that right now. I feel like it’s important to make sure that I’m 100% OK before I can get into a relationship. But,” she goes on, and here her voice hardens, “people have to understand that I can’t be alone forever. Cory wouldn’t want that.”"
