Music and film legend Barbra Streisand joined in the ‘Carpool Karaoke’ fun with The Late Late Show’s James Corden last night as she releases her latest album, Walls.
With his own car jackbooted, he calls on the EGOT winner for a lift.
Immediately reaching for some music, La Streisand initially isn’t too hip to the idea, “I just finished making an album and I don’t usually put the radio on when I’m driving.”
Corden’s sad face saves the day, fortunately for us.
Along the ride we’re treated to “Enough Is Enough,” “Evergreen,” “Imagine,” “What A Wonderful World,” “Don’t Lie To Me” and “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”
Plus, Barbra shares how she really isn’t a great driver (she failed her driving test three times recently), that performing live still makes her uncomfortable, and how she called up Tim Cook (CEO of Apple) to get Siri’s pronunciation of her name corrected.
And she talks on the theme of her new album inspired by the current political turmoil.
You can get Walls here on iTunes and you can watch the one and only Babs below.
James Corden, fresh from the holidays, takes time to honor music icon George Michael, who passed away recently.
In addition to Michael’s music, Corden acknowledges the iconic singer’s 2011 participation in the birth of a comedy skit that what would evolve into Corden’s now uber-popular “Carpool Karaoke” segments.
Yes!!! The Late Late Show‘s James Corden is the gift that keeps giving.
It seems all those times James hosted fab guests in his “Carpool Karaoke” episodes he was planning a fab Christmas gift for all us fans.
Starting out with Mariah Carey in the car, she says the only gift she’d really like would be a carpool karaoke of her holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Well, we get that and a whole lot more as clips of “Carpool Karaoke” guests past chime in: Adele, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, Elton John, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Chris Martin, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Gwen Stefani.
US Weeklyraves about the “carpool karaoke” episode we’ve all been waiting for The Late Late Show‘s James Corden to deliver:
Bitch, she’s Madonna. New York City drivers, beware: The Material Girl does not like to be cut off when she’s driving. The Queen of Pop joined James Corden for Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show on Wednesday, December 7, and the segment began with their black SUV getting cut off by a Manhattan bus. “Let’s drive up next to the bus. I want to give him what’s what,” Madonna, 58, told the host before calling him a p–sy. “You let people get away with bad behavior, they’re gonna do it again.”
First up came “Vogue,” as the pair began singing and striking poses, including a mile-high leg in the air from the singer. Then she began twerking as “Bitch I’m Madonna” played. Then they discussed whether her children liked her new music, and the Grammy winner admitted that while her four kids “are quite rebellious,” she’s “quite square.” “When I go home, I’m Julie Andrews,” she insisted.
Corden, 38, then changed the subject to men and marriage and asked what it was like hanging out with the late Michael Jackson. “You want me to kiss and tell then, don’t you?” she teased before admitting that she had kissed the King of Pop (with tongue), after getting him to loosen up with a glass of chardonnay. “Baby, I’ve been around,” she said.
Lady Gaga, who only recently received her drivers license, is the latest superstar to join in the James Corden’s “The Late Late Show” Carpool Karaoke fun.
Along the way, the way the duo sing through Gaga classics like ”Perfect Illusion”, “Edge of Glory”, “Bad Romance”, “Born This Way”, “Poker Face”, and “Million Reasons”.
The banter includes her upcoming appearance at the Super Bowl, the story behind writing the lyrics of “Bad Romance”, her famous collection of Michael Jackson’s clothing, even a parade of her past costumes including the “meat dress.”
First Lady Michelle Obama brings it as she joins The Late Late Show‘s James Corden for a sassy serving of “carpool karaoke” cruising around the White House last night.
Stevie Wonder’s “Signed Sealed Delivered,” Beyoncé’s”Single Ladies” were on the song list, and even Missy Elliott dropped in for some “This Is For My Girls.”
The First Lady shares that this is only the second time that she’s ridden in the front passenger seat since her husband became president. Apparently, the other time was when daughter Malia was learning to drive in 2014.
This Jennifer Lopez iteration, which aired last night, is a very good one. Lopez—always appealing—is especially relaxed and on point here (highlights include the harmonizing between the two on Lopez’s “Booty,” as well a brief interlude where Lopez shows Corden how to pose for a “J.Lo music video”).
Lopez also knows how to skillfully weave in tidbits to entice the gossip-hungry masses. She reveals to Corden exactly how many men have proposed marriage to her, and how she handled turning down the two she did.
But the centerpiece, for sure, is when, toward the clip’s end, Corden texts Leonardo DiCaprio from Lopez’s phone (“Hey baby, I’m kind of feeling like I need to cut loose any suggestions? Let me know, J.Lo (you know, from the block)” he writes) . . . and, improbably, DiCaprio responds—in delightful fashion.
