Take a Break: Juliet Lee
With this new series, MODA Blog invites you to take a break from school and work and into the world of procrastination. Browsing through blogs or even playlists can be a bore, and sometimes you need that tiny bit of inspiration. Each week, one blogger will share their current arts and culture obsession. Whether it be a Netflix show, Youtube series, or even an online gallery, we hope that you guys can become just as obsessed as we are, and sorry not sorry for extending your procrastination time. But let's be honest, since you're here on the blog, it's completely worth it.
This week, I am sharing my current obsession: James Corden's Carpool Karaoke.
First, let me give you a little background. James Corden is an English actor, writer, producer, comedian, singer and television host. He currently is the host of the talk show The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS. Though many audiences, especially from the United States, are familiar with him in this capacity, James Corden is actually a very talented singer. He starred in Disney's film adaption of the musical Into the Woods playing the Baker, and even won the 2012 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play for his lead performance in One Man, Two Guvnors. And Corden does not forget his musical roots by adding the segment, Carpool Karaoke, to The Late Late Show.
Now what is Carpool Karaoke you may ask? Well, it's a mini segment of the Late Late Show that will shatter your preconceived stereotypes of the singers you know today and continuously surprise you with each guest. James Corden gets famous musical artists like Justin Bieber and Adele and even some who aren't singers to sing like Michelle Obama and George Clooney with him in a car as they drive around Los Angeles! In this segment with Selena Gomez, they even try belting out on a roller coaster. During Carpool Karaoke, you'll see Corden joke around and get to know his guest(s) in a more natural setting and still hear them sing their iconic songs. It's light and airy and will definitely draw out some laughs.
