“And now I’m definitely a pothead hippie, but when I was trying to help her, I was completely straight and going to meetings and behaving myself, and I think we were a good influence.”
It seemed that the singer’s kind gesture worked out for the best, with Drew saying she enjoyed her two months living with the musician and joining him on tour.
