- And you how to experience the eternal theme of "Mother married» ?
All of his childhood and youth nobody took me as her son. She remained young and beautiful, and I have a husband, and she was very flattered when we were taken for a brother and sister. Since my childhood I knew that she is famous and she has fans who call, give flowers, love it. But there were severe cases ...

I had a long, 25-minute, uphill climb the stairs. (Sasha among maishnikov was "in authority" - in his tent on the mountain stones someone laid out lovingly Gradskij.) We stayed in a tent to spend the night, and I immediately hated of all. The only thing that I have reconciled with fate, - I could with impunity, steal and smoke my mother's cigarettes.
More married mother did not come, though, of course, the fans were ... I think my mother is difficult to find a man who would suit her in every way: the creative, human, that would be the person worthy of her ...
