First of all, for the people who hate on Britney Spears for lip syncing, watch her Carpool Karaoke. Yes, she doesn’t sing the entire time, but when she does, she sounds exactly like the studio recordings of her songs. She even totally nails a classic “mmyeah” at the end.
OK, so now let’s talk about the ride. It starts off a little awks for Britney during “Toxic” and “Womanizer” (she forgets some of the wordy lyrics), but then she does the robot and shows off her silly side. The popstar and host James Corden even reenact the script at the end of “Oops!… I Did It Again” and nail it! But the best part has to be when the pair put on schoolgirl uniforms for the last song, “…Baby One More Time.” James wearing braids with the pink pom-pom hair ties is golden.
Between songs, there’s a lot of banter going on. Britney reveals she was paddled in first grade and asks James if he’s heard of the new “tickle torture” sex trend. They also talk about children (yes, that was a 360-degree change in conversation), and Britney says she wants three more. But then she admits that she’s sworn off men entirely. “I think I might not ever go to men again, [like] ever do the man thing anymore or get married anymore. I might French kiss someone but I’m not going to marry anyone anymore, no. I don’t believe in marriage anymore.”
She’s singing, joking around and opening up. Britney, b*tch is back!
