Yes you are reading that headline correct, Madonna is doing James Corden’s The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke!! She revealed the news today with a picture of the pair via Instagram , with them looking happy and like FUN was occurring!!
This news makes me SUPER excited!! Say what you want about the woman but she has some absolute ‘cheeeeeewins’ in her back catalogue. You can just envision James and Madge rocking out to ‘Like a Virgin’, ‘Just Like a Prayer’ , ‘Papa Don’t Preach’… to name just three bangers!! That’s not even covering her criminally under appreciated recent offerings like ‘4 Minutes’ and ‘Give Me All Ur Luvin'(both duets also just saying)
Corden’s Carpool Karaoke segment has become an increasingly popular phenomenon with the videos being watched and shared worldwide. Boy can he pull in the star-power too, Madge joins Carpool alumni Lady Gaga, Adele (beast <3), Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Michelle O-f**king*-bama!! He is on quite a good run of entertaining guests and hilarious segments and I for you am sure that the Queen of Pop will not disappoint.
Am I expecting a technical singing masterclass or powerhouse vocals… No. But, that is not what has made Madonna a bona-fide legend reigning as the Queen of Pop for decades. What has kept her there is her shock and entertainment factor, continuous re-inventions and knowing her way around an absolute pop smash!!
So lets all rejoice tonight we are in for an absolute Carpool treat I will be waiting with hiiiigh anticipation for the video to drop (please pre-Thanksgiving)! Expect pop perfection, hilarity, eccentricity to say the least and a genuine moment.
Kudos James, I know what you will be thankful for this holiday season.
Sounding off and signing off.
