Britney Spears’ comeback is officially complete. On Thursday, the resurgent singer sat in pop culture’s most coveted seat, when she appeared on the latest installment of James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke.” Like the boldface names that came before her, Spears gamely sang along to her sprawling catalog of hits.
Along with her newest chart-topper “Make Me,” Spears and Corden harmonized on “Toxic,” “Oops!… I Did it Again”, “Womanizer”, and, of course, “Baby One More Time,” for which they recreated the song’s iconic video with the help of some matching private school regalia.
In between songs, the notoriously private Spears opened up to Corden about her family and her love life. After admitting that she’d like to give her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden, three more siblings, Spears added that finding a suitable partner to help her with that might be impossible. “I think I might not ever go to men again... or get married,” she told Corden. “I’m just done with men.”
Asked to clarify, Spears said: “I might French kiss someone but I’m not going to marry anyone, no. I don’t believe in marriage anymore.” Even if Spears was ready to tie the knot, where would she find the time? After releasing her comeback album Glory on Friday, Spears will take the stage for a hugely anticipated performance at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. In other words, Britney’s busy, b*tch.
