Weirdest thing that happened this year?

JD: I just recently went to Tokyo and fell in love with the way the Japanese take care of their skin. I love a brand they have, SK-II, which is amazing and they have these facial sheets which are amazing. I used one this morning because I was out last night. I put one on and I felt great and ready for the show.
Where would you live besides where you’re living now?
JD: Ooh, where would I live? Maybe LA? Or would I? All right, let’s just say LA.
