Madonna Dishes on Kissing Michael Jackson in a Wild, Twerk-Filled Carpool Karaoke
The musical ride was chock full of Madonna's '80s and '90s classics
Madonna struck a pose, twerked and belted out her chart-topping hits for the most dance-centric chauffeured ride on late night television.
“I don’t like riding in a car unless there’s music,” Madonna, 58, said before singing “Vogue” – along with the accompanying dance that was followed by her taking off her seat belt and breaking out some leg splits.
Corden even made a feeble attempt to extend his right leg above his head.
And for the first time in Carpool history, the Grammy-winning songstress twerked in the passenger seat. Madonna and Corden jammed to “Bitch I’m Madonna,” with Madge once again freeing herself from her safety belt.
During the ride, the singer opened up about her decades-long music career, and her run-ins with the industry’s biggest stars –particularly sharing a French kiss with Michael Jackson.
“Baby, I’ve been around. Yeah, tongue-in-mouth kissing,” she said, noting that she made the first move on the iconic music legend.
“He’s a little bit shy. However, he was a willing accomplice. I did get him to, sort of, loosen up with a glass of Chardonnay. And it did wonders. It worked wonders.”
Despite her romantic evening with the King of Pop (and her superstar status), Madonna said her life is pretty “predictable.”
“My work is rebellious, but my lifestyle isn’t rebellious. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, I don’t party. I’m quite square,” she said.
She even spoke candidly about her love life, particularly the “type” of man she’d go for.
“Well, you have to have a sense of humor and understand my sense of humor otherwise we are dead in the water,” she said. She sent a compliment – and a joke – Corden’s way when he spoke of his wife Julia.
“She’s lucky. I think the best thing in the world is to be married to someone who’s funny. All that’s missing is a good dress sense.”
When they weren’t chatting, the pair jammed out to hits like “Papa Don’t Preach,” “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina,” “Express Yourself,” “Ray of Light” and “Music.”
Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour film premieres on Showtime on Dec. 9.
The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. on CBS.
