The Late Late Show: Stevie Wonder Carpool Karaoke

Another great segment by James Corden and The Late Late Show team.

In this Carpool Karaoke clip, Stevie Wonder helps James get to work(it’s easier to commute in the carpool lane, don’t you know?), although in the beginning no one’s quite sure who’s going to drive.

Once that gets sorted out, Stevie shares some ideas he has about James including forming a new band called The WonderCats, although Stevie puts his foot down that James must never play the harmonica.

In a FaceTime call to a friend, Stevie does come to the ultimate truth that “all English guys look the same” to him.

Funny, funny stuff and great chemistry between the two. Plus, lots of Stevie Wonder karaoke along the way.

Stevie Wonder apologizes for being misunderstood about comment on gays being “confused”

Music legend Stevie Wonder is now walking back a statement he made earlier about gays being “confused” about their sexual orientation.  From The Advocate:

In a recent interview with the U.K. paper The Guardian, Wonder was asked about the media sensation caused by Ocean, the out hip-hop performer whose acclaimed hit album Channel Orange has drawn numerous comparisons with the veteran musician. “I think honestly, some people who think they’re gay, they’re confused,” Wonder said to the paper. “People can misconstrue closeness for love. People can feel connected, they bond. I’m not saying all [gay people are confused]. Some people have a desire to be with the same sex. But that’s them.”

Wonder now clarifies his comment with an exclusive statement to The Advocate, saying, “I’m sorry that my words about anyone feeling confused about their love were misunderstood. No one has been a greater advocate for the power of love in this world than I; both in my life and in my music. Clearly, love is love, between a man and a woman, a woman and a man, a woman and a woman and a man and a man. What I’m not confused about is the world needing much more love, no hate, no prejudice, no bigotry and more unity, peace and understanding. Period.”
