Britney Spears: Carpool Karaoke Was “Awkward”
Britney Spears seemed game for anything during her Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show. After all, host James Corden can somehow get celebrities to let their guard down and do things that might embarrass most people.
Hours after the segment aired, though, Britney admitted that Carpool Karaoke was “awkward.”
“It was a little awkward, like, driving by grocery stores,” she said to Cubby and Carolina in the Morning on New York’s 103.5’s KTU. “People walk by and there are like 18 cameras around us. This is just so awkward.”
Britney also said that she tried to have some say in the song choices, though James wouldn’t budge.
“Well he controlled the whole thing, and sometimes I got onto him and said, I don’t want to hear that song again.” Which song, exactly? “Of course ‘… Baby [One More Time]’ and ‘Oops![… I Did It Again].’ Oh my god and he kept playing them. He put a wig on for it. Yeah, I totally went along with it.”
Britney doesn’t seem to have hard feelings toward James, though, not when she prefaced all that with, “He’s a teddy bear. I was like, I just want to hug you right now.” But she does remind us that, as off the cuff as it may seem, Carpool Karaoke is as slickly produced as anything else out there on late night TV.
