If there ever was an awkward and disturbing Carpool Karaoke on James Corden’s “The Late Late Show”, it was the Britney Spears episode. Did the fans find it equally weird?
James Corden has driven many pop stars and singers in his Carpool Karaoke segment before, some of the most memorable being Adele, Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey and even the First Lady! But to see the once teenage pop icon attempting to keep up with the chat host as he grooved to her songs was eerily uncomfortable.
That might be because Britney Spears did not feel comfortable herself as she visibly squirmed and covered her face frequently. It was almost like she detested being seen in the public as she wore over-sized sunglasses that celebrities tend to sport when they are running from paparazzi.
Adding to her bizarre demeanor was the fact that Spears lip-synced half of the songs that James Corden played during the segment, reports Vox. All of the songs were hers, so not knowing the lyrics of the played songs could not have been an excuse for her to avoid singing aloud.

When James Corden asked her what her song “Oops… I did it again” meant, she replied that she did not remember what it meant, which made it even weirder.
Fans were quick to pick up on her less-than-normal behavior. While some people on YouTube have extended their sympathy for her, some others simply voiced their shock and confusion at the segment.
“She interacts with him as if she’s being held at gunpoint and forced to do so.”
“Idk if she forgot some of her own lyrics, or just doesn’t feel comfortable singing without her track playing and her mic being slightly muted. It’s sad, because she started off as a real singer, and now she’s not living up to it. She just released an album, you have to be ready!!!!”
“Criiiiinge worthy…she tried though but damn, her personality had suffered A LOT…she was a little odd and this is the worst carpool guest so far. James Corden was dragging her throughout and he was having fun alone lol.”
Hours after her Carpool Karaoke was aired, Britney Spears spoke to KTU 103.5 FM’s Cubby & Carolina Bermudez, reports Cosmopolitan, and revealed that Carpool Karaoke “was a little awkward, like, driving by grocery stores. People walk by and there are like 18 cameras around us. This is just so awkward.”
