Lady Gaga Helped James Corden With the “Bad Romance” Lyrics and Almost Caused an Accident on Carpool Karaoke

Lady Gaga teaching James Corden exactly how to sing and dance to “Bad Romance” was just one highlight during The Late Late Show’s latest installment of Carpool Karaoke. Indeed, the two covered a lot of ground on Tuesday night, beginning with the perfect song for a traffic jam—Ludacris’ “Move Bitch”—before intermixing classic Gaga with some country-girl Joanne Gaga (both songs and outfits). She also got behind the wheel for a bit, which, well, didn’t go so well.

And as with any Carpool Karaoke segment, Corden’s guest shared a few interesting tidbits about her process and work. Among them: Many of Gaga’s most popular songs, including “Poker Face” and “Just Dance,” took just 10 minutes to write apiece. As Corden began modeling each of Gaga’s distinct looks—even including that infamous caution tape wrap—it became increasingly clear that for Gaga, the costumes likely took longer to think up than the songs. Sounds about right.
