Selena Gomez Takes Carpool Karaoke To Whole New Heights, Literally — VIDEO
Probably because she's so sick of those same old Carpool Karaokes, Selena Gomez decided to mix things up on The Late Late Show segment hosted by James Corden. Selena Gomez's Carpool Karaoke was not your run-of-the-mill-sing-show-tunes-in-the-car kind of episode. She needed something a little more than that. Hence, the pop star decided to take Corden on a different kind of ride — and no, I'm not just talking about the rollercoaster or the ginger shot she subjected him to. I'm talking about Gomez and Corden's discussion of two pretty real things (sexism in the music industry, and whether or not she wants to be dating right now).
Before the pair got real about Gomez's life, they did partake in other kinds of wild rides, including but not limited to: the aforementioned amusement park visit and a pit stop at McDonalds. Because that much singing can really make you hungry. Hungry for info, I mean. While the singer shared a McDonalds meal (looked like mostly fries) with The Late Late Show host, she discussed her position in Taylor Swift's squad, and gloated a bit over the fact that she's an "OG" member.
Corden (jokingly) tells her that he believes the Taylor Swift selected girl gang is "a bit sexist," but Gomez had a quick response to this — probably because she's used to this kind of criticism. “I think this industry could use a little female sexism. I think we have a right to be that way. It’s a lot harder to do what I have to do.”
That's not to say she and the Swift squad aren't open to male squad additions. Gomez tells Corden, "Find me a boyfriend and then we'll talk about it." The singer hasn't dated anyone in the public for a few years now, but admitted to Corden that she's open to some romance. Though she did make sure to note that she "likes to have fun," so presumably she's not looking for anything serious. Makes sense, considering she's young, and, oh, I don't know, incredibly busy. As she's currently on tour, Corden poked fun at Gomez, hinting that she probably wants a "guy in every port." She shyly played along, entertaining the idea to an extent. "No not every... place!" she laughed, and then shut it down with, "I don't know."
Naturally, the interaction was book-ended with a "Shake it Off" sing-a-long. Because after James Corden asks you about your romantic life plans over a bag of McDonald's fries, there's nothing really left to do, you know?
