First Lady Michelle Obama Carpool Karaoke

James Corden‘s White House tour takes an unthinkable turn when First Lady Michelle Obama joins him for a drive around the grounds singing Stevie Wonder and Beyonce in Michelle Obama Carpool Karaoke.

Surprise guest Missy Elliott drops in to sing “This Is For My Girls.” alongside Michelle Obama & James Corden in his very hot and popular ongoing viral segment, Michelle Obama Carpool Karaoke.

In this gossip and he-said/she-said news infused week full of political propaganda, here’s messaging done delightfully different to the masses gone viral.

This video of Michelle Obama Carpool Karaoke can and should be shared generously with all your family and friends right to your own living room.

In this Michelle Obama Carpool Karaoke, a segment for James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” series that aired last night, Michelle Obama told the late-night host that this was one of the only times she’s been near the steering wheel of an automobile since arriving at the White House:
“I’ve been in a car maybe months ago with my daughter who learned to drive, and we rocked out with her. But that was the only time in seven and a half years that I’ve been in the passenger seat, listening to music, rocking out like this.”

The exchange also provides a near metaphor for what Michelle Obama has done with this instantly viral Late Late Show video segment. She’s technically in the passenger seat, but really, she’s driving the car.

Watch Michelle Obama Carpool Karaoke make history and be a possible first for all future first lady’s of the white house.

Filming took place on the top floors of the Standard Hotel in New York City, and was directed by Jonas Åkerlund who explained how he landed the project:

‘Madonna called me about ‘Ghosttown’. We hadn’t worked for a while because of different circumstances so when I heard all the songs [on Rebel Heart], I was very excited about ‘Ghosttown’. I connected to it creatively. And, yeah, we enjoyed working together. I was supposed to start something else right after and that got pushed and she asked me to do ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’. I saw it being so completely different from ‘Ghosttown’, something a little bit less serious, just fun and crazy.

Beyonce – “Pretty Hurts” Music Video

Beyonce-Pretty_Hurts-music_video

Pretty Hurts” is the fourth single and music video from American R&B singer Beyonce‘s fifth studio album titled, Beyoncé.

The Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler wrote the song in collaboration with Ammo (credited as Joshua Coleman) and Beyoncé, while the production was handled by Ammo and Beyoncé.

“Pretty Hurts” is a smoky pop and neo soul song “with speechy lyrics about the tyranny of the beauty industry”, intended as a self-empowerment anthem as Beyoncé sings negatively of beauty stereotypes: “Brush your hair / Fix your teeth / What you wear / Is all that matters”. Beyoncé sings about “the fatal consequences that our common pursuit of the perfect body can have”.

To promote the single, Beyoncé launched a new site in April 2014 titled whatispretty.com, which stated: “How do you define pretty? Upload a photo or video to Instagram tagged #WhatisPretty that captures what the word means to you.”

“Pretty Hurts” was initially written by Australian singer Sia Furler. Furler subsequently sent the song to Katy Perry and Rihanna, who both ultimately passed on recording it. Furler then proceeded to send it to Beyoncé, who knew immediately that she wanted to record it.
