Madonna joined James Corden for the popular Carpool Karaoke segment on his Late Late Show on Wednesday, Dec. 7, and while we had high hopes for it (especially after the teaser), we can honestly say it was even better than we hoped it would be.
Corden picks up Madonna and they ride around the streets of Manhattan, New York, singing some of her best tracks, including, “Vogue,” “Papa Don’t Preach” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.”
The segment is just super-weird and wonderful and includes a display of Madonna’s flexibility, the first-ever car twerk (at least, the first one Corden has ever seen) and talk of the men in her life — with one in particular, Michael Jackson.
“What was a night out with Michael Jackson, or a night in [like]?” Corden asked Madonna, referring to their brief romance in 1991.
“So you want me to kiss and tell then, don’t you?” she responds.
And it’s the answer we’ve all been waiting for: “Of course,” Madonna said, before adding, “I mean, baby, I’ve been around.” As for why fans are only hearing about this now, according to Madonna, she’s never had the chance to talk about it because no one ever asks her.
Fans are loving the segment, and Twitter has been abuzz with reactions to Madonna’s appearance on the show.
