Britney Spears Carpool Karaoke

Britney SpearsCarpool Karaoke will no doubt go down as one of the oddest guest appearances on James Corden’s The Late Late Show.

Not only did she attempt a cringe-inducing reenactment of that infamous Titanic scene, commentators also pointed out the singer seemed to be miming many of the lyrics.

Since the event was broadcast, Spears has given a candid interview in which she refers to Corden only as ‘the guy’ and brands filming ‘awkward’.

"It was fun, it was really fun,” she told radio station 103.5 WKTU. “The guy was just so incredibly sweet. I had no idea he has kids, he's a teddy bear. I was like, 'I just want to hug you right now.’”

She said of filming the 10-minute segment: "It was a little awkward, like, driving by grocery stores. People walk by and there are like 18 cameras around us. This is just so awkward.”

When asked whether there were songs she didn’t want to perform, she replied: "Of course 'Baby' and 'Oops'. Oh my God, and he kept playing them! He put a damn wig on for it. Yeah I totally went along with it.”

Adele’s Carpool Karaoke is the most popular instalment to date, having amassed 123 million YouTube views.
