August 08, 2018

Some of the biggest names in music have jumped in the passenger seat for an appearance on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke segment. The most recent edition was filmed around Liverpool with Paul McCartney while Adele, Justin Bieber, and Britney Spears have all taken part. It turns out that Kanye West was supposed to join the illustrious list on multiple occasions, only he's never actually gone through with the filming.

Kanye's mother-in-law Kris Jenner was a guest on Corden's Late Late Show on Tuesday when she asked why we've never seen a Yeezy Carpool. “I can answer this easily”, he told Jenner in response.

"We’ve tried," he explained. "He’s cancelled, twice. Maybe even three times. He cancelled once as I was turning the corner to his house. I was outside his house and they were like, ‘He’s not in the zone for it right now. We’ll do it another time.’"

“He did send me a lovely gift… He sent me these incredible flowers in a cube. A cube of flowers, which I’d never seen before, and he sent me a pair of Yeezys. People were like, ‘Woah, they’re so expensive,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah! They cost my show $45,000!'”
