To be grounded and absorb the moment properly. The artist said she likes to skip the traditional practice of riding fancy limos to the Dolby. Theater in Los Angeles and instead walks up to the ceremony. For a megastar like her, this was a major surprise to both the audience and Jimmy.
She also remembered how it had rained that day as she had to go up to the awards in high heels, about half a mile from her hotel. In contrast, she does not encourage walking in the rain in high heels. Due to the risks involved, she did chuckle about how it keeps her grounded.

“So I have a few of rituals and things that I like to do before I go. One of which is to go for a stroll. I don’t like getting in the car, you know, the long limo journey, because I don’t like coming out and seeing everyone yelling and whatnot. So I slip in. I sneak in because, you know, everyone comes out and stands there looking at the red carpet, so I creep in behind them.”
