Drew: It's the best time of my life - it's not traumatic at all. I don't think I've ever been happier. It's like the older I get, the better I get. Gravity and wrinkles are fine with me. They're a small price to pay for the new wisdom inside my head and my heart. "If my breasts fall down to the floor and everything starts to sag and becomes hideous and gross, I won't worry.
Drew: I once got dumped by a guy twice! The second time I was like, 'Really? Are you sure now?'
Drew: (about being in ET at age seven) One day I was a little girl, and the next day, I was mobbed by people who wanted me to sign my autograph or pose for pictures. Some of them just wanted to touch me. It was crazy. I was this 7-year-old who was expected to be going on a mature 29.
Drew: I have mainly very positive things I like to feel about my parents. I think I inherited my mother's incredible spirit and enthusiasm for life, her humour, her passion for music. Even though we don't see each other very much.
Drew: I've never really understood how I should feel or behave in a relationship... I didn't have the kind of childhood or family life that would have given me any perspective on what a happy home life or relationship would feel like. My father was literally out of his mind and my mother was more like a friend than a real mom to me. She would take me out to clubs and I wound up feeling like part of this very unreal kind of world, although that was the only world I ever knew growing up.

Drew: Do I like women sexually? Yeah, I do. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual. I love a woman's body. I think that a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful. Being with a woman is like experiencing your own body through someone else...I totally love it.
Drew: Kissing - and I mean like, yummy, smacking kissing - is the most delicious, most beautiful and passionate thing that two people can do, bar none. Better than sex, hands down.
