James Corden Deeply Regrets Kissing Sean Spicer While Drunk On Emmys Night


James Corden

A great many of us have woken up after a heavy night out wondering what on Earth we decided was a good idea to do while inebriated - but few are left more embarrassed than James Corden, who incurred the internet's wrath by kissing former Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Just because he's no longer a part of the White House family doesn't excuse the fact that Sean Spicer has repeatedly lied to the American public over the last several months. As if his inclusion in Sunday night's (September 17th 2017) Emmy Awards ceremony wasn't bad enough, James Corden made things worse by being pictured giving him a kiss on the cheek.

Liam Gallagher Gives James Corden A Break. Slams Soloists And Bono Instead.

If there's one thing you can say about Liam Gallagher, it's that he's not afraid to say exactly what's on his mind, even if he takes down a chat-show host in the process. As it turns out though, James Corden isn't the only celebrity the former Oasis star has got a problem with.

In the past, the 44-year-old has denied he would go solo because he's 'not a c**t'. Unfortunately though, with an Oasis reunion not on the cards anytime soon, he has decided to bite the bullet and give it a go - but he still hates most solo musicians.

James Corden Watched 'Sharknado 5' And It's Clearly The Best Thing He's Ever Watched


James Corden

'Sharknado' is probably one of the best worst indie film series ever created, and with the premiere of 'Sharknado 5: Global Swarming' over the weekend, it's safe to say that the world was gripped once again. Especially James Corden, who reserved a special segment on his show devoted to the new release.

Of course, nobody else James knew seemed to have watched the film - I mean, it's about sharks getting swept up in a cyclone and killing city folk, it's kind of a niche subject - but it's probably the best movie he's seen all year. After watching it on Sunday night (August 6th 2017), he decided to recount some of his favourite moments from the 'epic' film.

The Emoji Movie Review

Weak

There's no reason why this animated comedy adventure needed to be this pointless. Solidly entertaining movies have been made using far less as source material (see The Lego Movie). But while there are some hilarious verbal and visual gags peppered throughout this movie, it all hinges on a script that's painfully obvious and animation that simply isn't inventive enough to hold the attention without a decent story and stronger characters.

It's set in Textopolis, an app inside the smartphone of the teen Alex (Jake T. Austin). The central character is Gene (T.J. Miller), who has far too many expressions for a meh emoji. His parents (Jennifer Coolidge and Steven Wright) worry that he has some sort of defect. Threatened by the cruel senior emoji Smiler (Maya Rudolph), Gene and his pal Hi-5 (James Cordon) sneak out of the app in search of the hacker Jailbreak (Anna Faris), who can help reprogramme him if they can make it to the cloud. But Smiler sends a team of killer bots in hot pursuit.

Yes, the plot is cursory at best, and essentially exists only so the film can namecheck carefully placed apps in a series of sponsored, rather pointless extended set pieces. This leaves the movie feeling like a low-rent variation on Wreck-It Ralph, although only a few of these sequences have any visual interest. The Candy Crush world is at least a colourful alternative to the dull digital look of most of most of the movie. And the lack of imagination shows in the depiction of music streaming as a stream and a firewall as a wall of fire. There's also a strange rush to violence in almost every sequence, as the bots continually try to delete our heroes.

Ed Sheeran Admits Hitting Justin Bieber In The Face With A Golf Club On 'Carpool Karaoke'


Ed Sheeran James Corden Justin Bieber

There was some seriously electric chemistry between Ed Sheeran and James Corden on his latest 'Carpool Karaoke' segment for 'The Late Late Show', where the pair harmonised with each other perfectly to some of the former's greatest singles - along with a couple of other pop hits.

It's the episode we've all been waiting for, seeing James Corden picking up Ed Sheeran in downtown LA on his way to work on the pretence that the latter left his guitar at James' house. In reality, the guitar was there to make Ed feel a little more comfortable with the journey ahead, as he later revealed.

Emoji Movie Trailer


We use Emojis in text messages and social media everyday, but have you ever thought about what these images get up to when you put away your iPhone? When a high school boy goes to send his crush a 'Meh' emoji, it turns into something quite different. To the disappointment of his parents, Gene has never been quite as apathetic as he's expected to be, so when he messes up his moment it causes quite the problem for everyone else. Now the boy thinks his phone is broken, and he's on the way to get it re-set. That's not looking good for the emojis who find themselves desperately trying to back-up their world in the Cloud before their whole world gets wiped out. Meanwhile, Gene is about to learn that having more than one expression may not be such a bad thing after all.

Victoria Beckham James Corden

James Corden has managed to persuade Victoria Beckham to do what the other four Spice Girls were unable to – resume her singing career! The former pop star and current fashion designer will join the British presenter for ‘Carpool Karaoke’.

The 42 year old revealed her involvement with Corden’s now-iconic segment of ‘The Late Late Show’ – on which she was a guest on Wednesday night (March 29th). At some point soon, we can all look forward to the pair of them belting out old Spice Girls hits. With or without the use of Auto-Tune, we don't yet know.

Victoria herself announced her involvement with the CBS show via Instagram on Wednesday, sharing a picture of herself with 38 year old Corden stood behind her laughing hysterically. “What is so funny @j_corden X VB,” she captioned it.

Stars We'd Love To See Join James Corden On Carpool Karaoke UK


James Corden James Blunt Rolling Stones

So apparently, James Corden might be bringing his much-loved 'Late Late Show' to the UK, which means a very different calibre of guests for his legendary Carpool Karaoke. He may have his own wish list of potential guests for a UK version, but so do we.

James CordenJames Corden to bring Carpool Karaoke to the UK?

It isn't like he's never had Brits on the segment before, but we think the fact that One Direction, Chris Martin, Adele and Elton John have been amongst some of the most popular Carpool Karaoke videos is reason enough to bring it to the nation fully. 'We do have some stuff planned this year - which might involve being in the UK', he told the Radio Times. It seems only right, given that the 'Late Late Show' skit originated from a 2011 Red Nose Day clip featuring the late George Michael.

Donald Trump Jimmy Fallon James Corden

Following Donald Trump's most recent bizarre press conference, people across the world have been left utterly baffled by his nonsensical statements about fake news, uranium and Russian relations. Among other things. James Corden and Jimmy Fallon have managed to sum up the mess between them on their respective talk shows.

Speaking of 'mess', Jimmy did a pretty good job mimicking the president on 'The Tonight Show' in a skit entitled 'Trump Press Conference Cold Open', mocking Trump's latest catchphrase, 'we inherited a mess', and donning a blonde wig and a tiny hand.
