  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    When you realize that you are not allowed to be with the one you really love, this person turns into pain, you want to hug this person and warm up, cry until the pain turns into emptiness. I want the pain never to end, because if the pain goes away, love goes away with it. The pain of love is priceless after a breakup because these are priceless memories of true love that warm you alone.

  4. The English singer:

I’m back doing exercise. I look after my voice and I warm up… I tend to do it in the car, which must look a little strange!
