Mother Monster has been tapped as the next passenger on James Corden’s reliably viral Late Late Show segment, airing later this month. She made the announcement on Twitter with a cute pic of her and Corden donning pale pink cowboy hats, in homage to the cover art for her upcoming album Joanne.
You can expect to see a lot of Joanne-related talk on Gaga’s “Carpool Karaoke,” but there are a few more things we absolutely must see. Here’s our wish list.
First of all, it needs to happen in the car from the “Perfect Illusion” video
Forget Corden’s standard black Range Rover — the open-air SUV that Gaga wildly drives through a barren desert is way cooler.
The premiere of a new Joanne track
How cool would it be to hear Gaga belt a new song for the first time ever? Plus, we obviously need Corden to grill her about #LG5, which drops on October 21.
A dive bar appearanceRick Diamond/Getty Images for Bud Light
To hype up Joanne, Gaga kicked off a dive bar tour, and it’d be hilarious to see her and Corden crash one in the middle of the day. Maybe they could even have a beer-chugging contest, to get that Bud Light promo in.
Intel about her Super Bowl halftime performance
Has she already started lining up her onstage guests? Or will she fly solo? Does she care about football at all? These are all things we need to know.
A tattoo adventure
Gaga has a tradition of getting new ink for each album, and she already did the deed for Joanne (she has a tat of the date 12/18/1974, the day her aunt Joanne passed away). But what’s one more to add to her growing collection?!
Plenty of throwback hitsGiphy
We can always count on Corden to pick a driving playlist that’s ripe with old-school faves, and hopefully he’ll do the same with Gaga. Here’s to hoping he’ll take over Beyoncé’s verse on “Telephone,” then bring it back to the beginning with “Just Dance.”
Proof that Gaga really can drive
The singer got her driver’s license in July at age 30, and sadly got pulled over just two weeks later. Corden ought to give her the chance to redeem herself behind the wheel by letting her drive (as long as they steer clear of the messy L.A. freeways).
