Kanye West Repeatedly Bailed On Doing 'Carpool Karaoke'
Kanye West has backed out of taping a Carpool Karaoke segment for The Late Late Show three times, host James Corden revealed on Tuesday.
The rap star’s mother-in-law Kris Jenner, a guest on the show, asked Corden why West has never been featured in Carpool Karaoke.
Corden replied: “I can answer this easily.
“We’ve tried. 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.’”
Corden said the cancellations resulted in $45,000 U.S. in lost production costs – but West showed some remorse.
“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!’”
