Britney Spears has commented on her Carpool Karaoke segment.
In an interview with 103.5 WKTU hosts Cubby and Carolina, Spears said she found the Late Late Show segment “fun” but also a little “awkward.”
“It was fun, it was really fun,” Spears said, praising host James Corden as well. “The guy was just so incredibly sweet. I had no idea he has kids, he’s a teddy bear. I was like, ‘I just want to hug you right now.'”
But despite the good time, Spears did find one aspect of the breakout sketch a bit difficult. “It was a little awkward, like, driving by grocery stores. People walk by and there are like 18 cameras around us. This is just so awkward.”
Spears said Corden “controlled the whole thing,” and played some of her hits, including “…Baby One More Time” and “Oops… I Did It Again,” multiple times.
“Oh my God and he kept playing them,” she said. “He put a wig on for it. Yeah, I totally went along with it.”
Thus far, Spears’ Carpool Karaoke has more than 8 million views on YouTube. According to the executive producer of The Late Late Show, Spears had likely not seen the bit before participating.
“I don’t think she’d actually watched it before, I’m not convinced she’d actually seen Carpool,” Late Late Show executive producer Ben Winston said in an interview with the BBC this week. “I think she just heard that it was quite a big thing, so maybe she just got a bit of a shock.”
