hi from the past

usually I don’t do battle for many “causes”…just the one of getting you, my beloved Cosmo girl, and me through the night (calming our worries and helping us achieve what we want), but one cause I do feel strongly about is protecting the right to abortion for every woman in America whose religious beliefs do not forbid it.

JUSTIN BIEBER “I am the Biggest Fan—and I take that title seriously. I’ve spent thousands on his concerts. One Wednesday, I went to services at a church he attends hoping to spot him. Guess who walked in and sat next to me? Justin. Drew. Bieber! I wanted to tell him we were destined to be together, but instead, I just said I admired his relationship with God. We talked for 15 minutes. He was so nice and normal! After, I walked to my car and immediately threw up.”—ROBYN, 25 THE WEEKND “I love The Weeknd, aka Abel Makkonen Tesfaye.
