Lady Gaga, Carpool Karaoke


Lady Gaga just became the latest star to take a ride with James Corden, but there might be a few things you missed on the first go-around. 

At over 15 minutes, Mother Monster's Carpool Karaoke segment is one of the longest in the series, lasting longer than Jennifer Lopez, Adele, Britney Spears and even First Lady Michelle Obama. The Grammy winner covered plenty of musical ground in that time, hitting a handful of her top hits like "Bad Romance," "Poker Face" and "Born This Way," and even took the wheel for the first time in Carpool Karaoke history. 

After launching the segment with her newest chart topper, "Perfect Illusion," the 30-year-old even chatted about landing the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, getting her driver's license and her history of unforgettable fashion. "I don't like it when fashion fails me," she quipped before Corden changed into a handful of her iconic looks, including a rendition of her signature meat dress. 

While the segment probably jogged your memory for the lyrics to O-Town's "Liquid Dreams," here are a few other things you might have missed. 

1. Lady Gaga is singing all the way. 

Many artists sing along to their original tracks when they're in the car with Corden, but Gaga sang her songs full out with just instrumental and background singers behind her. Even Corden was so in awe of her talent, you might notice him just stopping and watching her throughout the segment. 

2. She put on an authentic show. 

Gaga isn't known to do anything half-way, so if she was going to perform her greatest hits, she was going to include the original choreography. Such was the case during "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face," when she started going through the classic movements easily identifiable by any bonafide little monster.

3. She's a born and bred New Yorker. 

After telling Corden about her newly minted driver's license, he asked her if she had driven in New York yet and if she had learned the hand signals to drive in the Big Apple. Yes—the middle finger! But, she wouldn't need a driver's license to learn that. Gaga was born and raised on Manhattan's Upper West Side. 

4. At one point, they're completely parked. 

After Gaga gets behind the wheel, they sing "Edge of Glory," but if you look out the windows, the car isn't moving.

5. Hoop earrings are becoming a Carpool Karaoke trend. 

After "Poker Face," the songstress noticed one of her hoop earrings fell out. She's in good company—both Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez have previously sported the style on their ears during their segments. Plus, J.Lo also lost one of her earrings in Corden's car and had to open the door to find it.
