I’m Pretty Sure We’re Supposed to Hear the Actual Singer’s Voice Over James Corden’s: Madonna’s Carpool Karaoke Is a Royal Snore

This is not good. This is almost as not good as Britney; all showy with the hands and the legs,

and the …

… because apparently Madonna’s flexibility and dance moves are more important than her singing. You know, I can feel a little badly for Britney but this, this is just uncomfortable (and the first time I’ve seen Corden look bored). Her Carpool Karaoke is one we could have done without, because it’s basically Corden trying to work up some enthusiasm while Madonna preens and attempts to cajole admiration from him. Heck, even her attempt at flirting goes badly, and it’s just weird that they barely look at each other. (Somebody’s a little too fascinated by herself.)  Go ahead, have a watch and hey, enjoy Corden’s singing because he mostly drowns out her Madgesty. Then, watch Lin-Manuel Miranda or RHCP or Lady Gaga to wash it all away.

    I support every woman’s choice to do whatever she wants to her own body. I support every woman’s choice to do whatever she wants to her own body. I have to remind myself of that sometimes.
    I support Madonna doing whatever makes her feel good about herself and her body and her age, but oh man… I’ve seen drag queens do better Madonna impressions.
    What was she wearing?? What were those gloves? Is she on her way to a party dressed as Bad era MJ? I guess I expect more innovation and creativity from her outfits, at least.

      I am fairly certain she wears lots and lots of gloves to hide her old woman hands. This is no shade. I guess it is, but towards The Industry.

        Huh, you know that had not occurred to me but it makes sense. I don’t think you can alter your hands, can you? Those gloves are still Not OK tho.

        • Sirilicious

          I’d imagine you can put fillers in your hands, but i have no clue.

          Yeah, the gloves are not ok.

    This is paiiiinful. So bad. Poor James is just Trying. So. Hard!
    The first one of these I ever watched was RHCP and it set the bar for me…which has never been surpassed. It is one of the most delightful, chemistry-laden pieces of musical film out there.

    This…this Madonna example is the the new “low end” of my bell curve for these. Why can’t she even spare him one glance, one moment of eye contact…???

  • I was to preoccupied noticing that she looks like a caricature of herself now.
