WATCH: James Corden does meat dress drag for Lady Gaga’s Carpool Karaoke
Lady Gaga inspired James Corden to break out a few costume changes of his own when she joined him for Carpool Karaoke last night.
As the pair sang through her hits, including new single ‘Perfect Illusion’, Corden showed off his own take on a few of her iconic looks, including the infamous meat dress.
Before that, he took the precaution of wearing a safety helmet when he let Gaga take over the wheel for a bit, after she revealed that she only passed her driving test a few months ago (with her whole family in attendance).
She also schooled Corden on the lyrics to ‘Bad Romance’, revealed that she bought 400 pieces from Michael Jackson’s closet (including a Thriller jacket!), and joined him in a brief rendition of O-Town’s ‘Liquid Dreams’ (“basically a song about ejaculating in your sleep,” as Corden puts it).
The highlight though was Corden taking the opportunity to rummage through Gaga’s wardrobe, trying on outfits from a full lace dress to a smattering of warning tape, along the way showing off a few of the more practical benefits of a dress made entirely from meat.
As for Gaga, she’s just released her new album ‘Joanne’, and next year will headline the Super Bowl halftime show.
