Kanye West not ready for Carpool Karaoke

You might be wondering why Kanye West has never appeared on James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ thing. I mean, it’s possible. You wonder about all kinds of nonsense. Even if you haven’t, West’s mother-in-law Kris Jenner has pondered on that very thing many times. And she took Corden to task on it in an interview this week.

“I can answer this easily”, said Corden. “We’ve tried. He’s cancelled, twice. Maybe even three times. He cancelled once as I was turning the corner to his house. I was outside his house and they were like, ‘He’s not in the zone for it right now. We’ll do it another time'”.

It’s alright though, West said he was sorry. Corden went on: “He did send me a lovely gift. He sent me these incredible flowers in a cube. A cube of flowers, which I’d never seen before, and he sent me a pair of Yeezys. People were like, ‘Woah, they’re so expensive’, and I was like, ‘Yeah! They cost my show $45,000!'”

Maybe Kanye’s right to be wary of guesting with Corden in a car though. Filming an appearance on the ‘Late Late Show’ feature this week, Ariana Grande bashed up her arm real good. She showed off her bandaged wrist in an Instagram story post, declaring herself “an idiot”, before adding on Twitter later that she should be “OK one day”.

Nonetheless, she said recording the telly bit was “the best day”, so the injury can’t have been that bad. The actual cause is being kept under wraps until her appearance airs next week. Sweepstake? I’ll take “scratched it trying to escape some light ‘banter’ from Corden”.
