Former The Voice coach Gwen Stefani takes the front seat for a drive to work with James Corden in the latest The Late Late Show host’s Carpool Karaoke video. Stefani and Corden discuss why it is that Stefani seems to be aging backgrounds, and she reveals her secret is that she’s writing music about happiness and truth. After singing a bit of ‘The Sweet Escape,’ Corden confesses he has no idea what she’s saying and Stefani patiently walks him through the “milk on the floor” chorus. And because Stefani is a huge lover of emojis, James tests her by making her pose like some of the most popular ones before discovering he needs four people not two to travel in the carpool lane.
Corden rings up George Clooney who has nothing better to do than sit in the backseat, but that leaves them still one person short of the mandatory four. George then calls up his Money Monster co-star Julia Roberts who joins him in the backseat for a ride to Corden’s work. The foursome sing Stefani’s ‘Hollaback Girl’ and Clooney explains his interpretation of what a hollaback girl is. Stefani wants everyone to interpret the song for themselves and says she’ll never reveal the real inspiration for the popular tune; all she will say is that she won. Then the group goes in for a big finish with Queen’s ‘We Are The Champions.’
