Spirits are high tonight at the Staples Center!

And why wouldn't they be? It's not every day all of music's biggest stars come together for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. Everyone from Gwen Stefani to Kendrick Lamar to Taylor Swift came out to honor, well, themselves. And while the main goal of the evening is to present the awards and watch the sure-to-be-groundbreaking performances, more than a few stars had to stop by the red carpet to chat first.

And chat they did. E's own Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic got the musical A-listers talking about everything from how to be a boss at Snapchat to paying those pesky bills. But don't let us tell you about it—read on to hear the best of the red carpet straight from the celebs themselves. 

"I dumped my boyfriend, that helps!" — Kacey Musgrave's advice for getting out of an emotional funk. Should we try that?

"I'm gonna give them the keys to success because they hid the keys from me." — Why DJ Khaled spends his Snapchat timing giving major keys.

"I have to pay the bills, of course but I definitely try as much as possible—Amy Winehouse, I learned that lesson from her that it has to be from the heart." — Mark Ronson dishing on what keeps him churning out the great tunes.

"Everybody's been rejected and we've all been jealous!" — The real reason everyone connected with "Girl Crush," according to Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild

"At first I didn't even know what I was saying!" — Selena Gomez admits that the material in The Big Short was confusing even for the people in it.

"At any point if someone puts sticks in your hands, you gotta know what to do with them." — Travis Barker's musical advice to his kids. 

"An English cup of tea with some British milk, that's all I want." — Sam Smith gets real about his cravings on the red carpet.

"You don't know what good music is until you put on Live at the Regal." — Gary Clark Jr. reminds us why B.B. King is, well, the king.

"He's a voice of the new generation. No matter what color you are, he's just speaking the truth." — Common heaps praise on his colleague Kendrick Lamar

"I looked at him tonight and said, 'You don't know what this means to me to be here.' We're both just mush!" — Robin Thicke's mother, Gloria, gets emotional about being his Grammys plus-one.

"She's gonna fall right out and then it's good!" — The birth process, according to Chrissy Teigen

"No skipping allowed." — The iron clad willpower of L.L. Cool J and his workout routine revealed. 

"We already won, so we're done!" — John Legend is ready to kick back before the Grammys even begin.

"Welcome to the 40th Clive Davis party, introduced by the 20th person Clive asked." — James Corden recreating his tongue-in-cheek gig at last night's big shindig.

"I've got a little entourage following behind me, man." — Kendrick Lamar joking about how he's going to get all of his Grammy statues out of the building.

"I'm too indecisive to let anybody else curate my vision." — A$AP Rocky tells it like it is.
