MADONNA’S CARPOOL KARAOKE: On Kissing Michael Jackson, “Of Course”

Madonna lets it all hang out during Carpool Karaoke with James Corden.

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.

From Variety:

“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.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s bedtime story of Hillary Clinton’s battle with the evil Donald Trump
Somebody had a to find a way to explain Hillary Clinton’s battle with the evil Donald Trump to the children (Think of the children!). Who better than Benedict Cumberbatch? We can forgive the overly broad generalities regarding blue and red states. Cumberbatch’s effort is admirable.
So settle in, kiddies, for a harrowing tale where the happy ending can only come once all Americans have done their part. Get Out and Vote. 
From YouTube:
Nearing bedtime, James Corden calls in his dad, Benedict Cumberbatch, for a story and settles on the tale of the 2016 election, pitting Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump.
