Lea starts off recalling a visit Cory made to Ellen’s show where he admitted that he and Lea were dating.
“It’s one of my favorite memories. I remember when he came home that night he kind of puffed out his chest and he was like, ‘I talked about you on Ellen today,’” she mused. “I was so happy. He’s such a private person, and I literally lived every day of my life feeling like the luckiest girl in the whole world.”
Sweet, isn’t it darlings? But sadly for LM, her happiness was cut short…
“I really feel like I’m still trying to figure out all of this,” she said of his death. “It’s been only a few months, but my mom has experienced a lot of loss in her life and she told me at one point, she said, there is an empowerment that comes with grief, at some point you find it.”
Ugh empowering. It’s one of those words that people attach to otherwise awful events, such as getting left at the altar or birthing your baby at home in a bathtub. I admire Lea for trying to find a silver lining in the death of her beloved, but sometimes bad things just happen darlings.
In any case, Lea says she will use Cory’s tragic demise as an impetus to live her life to the fullest and soldier on. And what better way to do that than to release a new album! Did she mention she has a new album coming out?
