“I mean, baby, I’ve been around.”
Madonna’s Carpool Karaoke with James Corden is a blast. She and James clearly had fun, which is fun to watch. It’s why we keep watching. This is a Madonna specialty, one of many.
Decked out in Moschino, Madonna sings and car dances to some of her classic hits and fan favorites. “Vogue,” “Express Yourself,” “Papa Don’t Preach,” “Bitch I’m Madonna,” “Ray of Light,” and “Music” play as the two navigate New York traffic.
Is there Voguing? Of course. Twerking? Yes. Taunting James about his red flannel shirt? Yep. A revelation about kissing Michael Jackson? Yes.
“You were friends with Michael Jackson,” Corden prompted at one point. “So you want me to kiss and tell then don’t you?” Madonna responded.
“Did you kiss?” he asked hesitantly. “Of course. I mean, baby, I’ve been around,” she said. “Full French kissing. Tongue and mouth kissing.”
Corden confessed that the alleged make out was news to him, to which Madonna responded, “Well I haven’t had the chance to talk about it. No one ever asks me.”
No one ever asks? Once again, journalists haven’t been doing their job.
