Watch Michelle Obama & Missy Elliott Do Carpool Karaoke With James Corden
If nothing else, the ongoing shitshow of the Republican National Convention might help remind us how good we have it right now, at least for the next six months. For instance: We have a First Lady of the United States of America who appears to be friends with Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott. That’s amazing! On last night’s episode of the Late Late Show, affable cornball James Corden introduced another installment of his Carpool Karaoke series, his greatest contribution to the culture. And on this particular episode, he went to the White House to drive around (entirely on the grounds, apparently?) with Michelle Obama. Together, they sang Stevie Wonder, Beyoncé, and Michelle’s own all-star charity single “This Is For My Girls.” Missy somehow magically appeared in the car during her verse, and this led to the earthshaking revelation that Michelle knows all the words to “Get Ur Freak On.” The whole thing is an absolutely relentless charm offensive, and you can watch it below.
Now picture Melania Trump doing that next year.
