James Corden and the Late Late Show's Carpool Karaoke is on every celebrity's bucket list. Recent editions have featured First Lady Michelle Obama, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda. But is the world's biggest hip-hop star and one of the pickiest media-appearance-choosers of all time ready?
"Kanye has been booked to do Carpool Karaoke now twice and both times something came up," Corden tells British GQ. "He’ll do it eventually. He wants to do it. [When he cancelled he sent] about three dozen white roses, of course. Arranged in the shape of a cube. What could be more Kanye than that?"
Scoring giants like Stevie Wonder, Adele, Elton John and Coldplay's Chris Martin hasn't tamped down Corden's dreams for the segment. One he's dying to get? Beyoncé. "It would break the internet. She’s on tour right now. We’re working on it.”
