  • Barbra Streisand Carpool Karaoke

For this episode of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke, Barbra Streisand picked up the stranded TV host - and it was a memorable journey!

The British comedian had some amusing moments with the 76-year-old singing legend as she admitted that she's not the best driver.

After picking Corden up from the side of the road after his auto has been booted for unpaid tickets, Streisand admits that she's had to retake her driving test a few times recently because she was unable to pass her renewal test. Whoops! "It's a good way to go out", Corden laughed.

Babs asks Corden. It quickly cuts to the two singing the seminal show tune from Funny Girl, "Don't Rain On My Parade" - a role which won Streisand an Oscar in 1969.

Streisand has battled stage fright most of her career, which once led to her taking a 27-year hiatus from touring.


"I don't get nervous nervous, but I don't enjoy it", she said of performing. "I get scared, I just don't want to disappoint people".

To calm herself down before a performance, she tells herself, "Let go and let god". "Walls" will likely please her legions of fans - she is one of the most popular recording artists of the last six decades - but may not bring many new listeners to her side. She talked about the time she convinced Apple's Tim Cook to change the way Siri pronounced her name. "Is that possible?'" she said.

That's not the only tech genius Streisand has reached out to.

"I called Steve Jobs once", she said. The song includes lyrics directed at President Trump with lines like, "How do you win if we all lose?" The auto was on a tow, so she didn't drive.
