James Corden Reveals How Many Times Kanye West Cancelled Carpool Karaoke Before Finally Doing It

James Corden booked Kanye West to do a Carpool Karaoke segment (which was actually Airplane Karaoke) on The Late Late Show, but things didn’t go according to plan at first!

“Complex fellow,” James said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday (December 2). “This was actually the third time that we had tried to do a sort of Carpool Karaoke with Kanye. The first time he agreed and then he canceled a few days later, and you’re like, ‘Well, that’s a shame, but it’s fine.’ The second time that Kanye canceled Carpool Karaoke was so late in the day that I was driving up his road in the car, with all the cameras, and got this phone call saying it’s been canceled.

“I think I basically turned around outside his house and drove back to the studio,” James added.

If you don’t know, back in 2013, Kanye and Jimmy Kimmel were actually in a feud.

FYI: James is wearing a Paul Smith suit during the interview.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Don't Always 'Understand' Each Other, She Says

Kim Kardashian admits that she and her husband of five years, Kanye West, don’t always “understand” each other.

The 39-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star opened up in a new interview with New York Magazine.

“The one consistent thing is our relationship has never stopped being fun,” Kim said. “And it’s okay to not understand each other. It’s okay to not have the same exact feelings all the time.”

“It’s just about figuring out how do we grow from that?” she continued. “Or, what’s the lesson from that? And, giving each other space and time to figure that out.”

A disagreement the couple recently had (shown on KUWTK) involved Kim‘s 2019 Met Gala outfit, which Kanye West thought was a little too revealing.

Kim Kardashian said she has now toned down her looks “a little,” explaining, “I saw this whole thing where it’s like, ‘She’s so demure, and she’s covered.’ And I was like, ‘Guys, I had a shearling coat on and a turtleneck because it’s, like, freezing.’ I think I have a little bit. I don’t know if it’s the fact that my husband has voiced that sometimes too sexy is just overkill and he’s not comfortable with that.”

“I listen to him and understand him,” she added. “Still, at the end of the day, he always gives me the freedom to be and do what I want.”

Kanye West Wrote an Opera, Will Debut It at the Hollywood Bowl

Kanye West has announced that he wrote an opera and it will be performed at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend.

The debut performance of Nebuchadnezzar, which will be directed by Italian performance artist Vanessa Beecroft, will take place on Sunday (November 24) in Los Angeles. Kanye‘s Sunday Service performers will be featured during the event, as well as Peter Collins & Infinities Song.

During a chat on Apple Music’s Beats 1 last month, Kanye talked about the project while discussing his Yeezus tour.

“[God] is saying, Let me take this Nebuchadnezzar-type character—Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, and he looked at his entire kingdom and said, I did this,” he said. “I stood on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, ‘I’m a God’—I had a guy dressed as Jesus.”

Tickets for the show are on sale today!

Kanye West Says He Is 'The Greatest Artist That God Has Ever Created'

During his appearance, he spoke about his spiritual journey.

“I know that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time,” he said to the crowd.

“When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me, and I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a mental breakdown and there’s documentation of me drawing a church and [wanting to] start a church in the middle of Calabasas.”

He said that despite “all of that arrogance and cockiness that y’all have seen from me,” God is now using him.

“Because every time I stand up, I feel that I’m standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying, ‘I’m here in service to God and no weapon formed against me shall prosper.’ Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him,” he said smiling.

Kim Kardashian and daughter North West were also welcomed onstage during the ceremony, and he is expected to return to the church for a Sunday Service performance.

Paul McCartney Talks Meeting Kanye West, Says the Rapper Couldn't Stop Looking at Photos of Kim Kardashian

Paul McCartney is opening up about the first time he met Kanye West.

During a new interview, the 77-year-old The Beatles legend talked about meeting the 42-year-old back in 2014 when Kanye asked him to produce their collaboration “Only One.”

“I had no idea what was going to happen,” Paul shared with Billboard. “I didn’t want it to be at his house or my house, because it could be awkward if one of us wanted to leave. So we met on neutral ground — a cottage at the Beverly Hills Hotel.”

Paul went on to say that when they started their music session, Kanye couldn’t stop looking at photos of his wife Kim Kardashian.

“I showed up with a guitar and my roadie, and we had a keyboard and a bass,” Paul continued. “I was sitting around, strumming the guitar — that’s normally how I start a song — and Kanye was looking at his iPad, basically scrolling through images of Kim.”

Paul then revealed the inspiration behind “Only One.”

“At one point I told him how ‘Let It Be’ came from a dream about my mother, who had died years before, where she said, ‘Don’t worry, just let it be,’” Paul recalled. “He said, ‘I’m going to write a song about my mother,’ so I sat down at this little Wurlitzer keyboard and started playing some chords, and he started singing. I thought, ‘Oh, are we going to finish this?’ but that was that. And it became ‘Only One.’”
