I got off track… What did Perry ask the audience to shout while she was away?

Perry starts: “I know a place / Where the grass is really greener.”

She's talking about marijuana, which has been legal for medical purposes in California since 1996. However, the song came out six years before it was legalized for recreational use in 2016.

The reference appears at the 11-second mark, and after that, Snoop avoids rapping about it himself.

In another show, the singer of the popular song ‘Firework' imitates smoking while singing the words.

This resulted in individuals connecting the dots and reaching the understanding…

A Reddit user recently shared that they just discovered that the line “where the grass is really greener” in the song California Gurls is actually referring to weed.

Another added: “Lol I didn't make the connection it would mean a weed… I always assumed it would be for describing California as the perfect paradise and just how you imagined it to be and the ‘really' stressing on the point.”

While a third commented: “Oh my gosh, I get it on another level now.”
