James Corden has lured one of pop’s biggest icons into a car with him and the results of this Carpool Karaoke segment are mixed. On the one hand, Corden does wear Britney Spear’s classic “Hit Me Baby One More Time” look, but on the other hand, you can’t even really hear Britney singing? Maybe she’s saving herself for her Las Vegas show, which recently got extended. Her album is also out today, so she probably has to save her voice for press packet tours. It’s tough being that famous.
Some fun details that Britney casually drops include the fact that she was “paddled” as a child in school and it was traumatizing; she wants three more kids; she’ll never get married again but does hope to French kiss someone; and she doesn’t think her kids care if they see her gyrating on stage. I happen to agree, though James Corden takes it to a weird place. As usual.
