James Corden appeared to not be driving while filming new Carpool Karaoke
While filming a new segment of his famous Carpool Karaoke with guest Justin Bieber, James Corden was spotted apparently not actually driving - which sent fans into an outrage.
The car was instead being carried by a truck, and Corden quickly wanted to address the rumours.
“I know this looks bad,” Corden laughed. “But I just want to say right now that I always drive the car, unless we’re doing something where we think it might not be safe. You know, like a dance routine or a costume change or if I’m drunk, right?" he said on his late night show.
Bieber was apparently as shocked as everyone else, tweeting about it late Wednesday night.
Wait... you weren't driving the car? How could you James? I'm shocked. https://t.co/YlsfErxtmm— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) January 30, 2020
Corden then went on to joke, "In the case of Justin Bieber it was a safety issue where we thought it was best to tow the car. Frankly, I just kept getting lost in his eyes.”
The host listed five Carpool Karaoke segments in which he was not actually driving due to safety concerns. This includes Meghan Trainor, Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, and Migos.
