Robbie Williams snubbed for Carpool Karaoke
Robbie Williams was snubbed for ‘Carpool Karaoke’.
The 42-year-old singer contacted the people behind the segment of James Corden’s American late night talk show ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ – in which stars go for a ride with the 38-year-old host who interviews them in between sing-a-long sessions – but has yet to receive a call back as he’s "not famous" in America.
He said: "I suppose you have to be famous in America to do Carpool. I’m not famous there. I’m yet to tick that box."
The ‘Party Like a Russian’ hitmaker – who was formerly a member of boy band Take That – dropped off the music scene for a few years but recently made a comeback with his new album ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show’ and thinks it would be great for the segment.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "James hasn’t got back to me about doing Carpool Karaoke yet. It does need to happen."
If the ‘Let Me Entertain You’ singer – who shares Teddy, four, and Charlton, two, with wife Ayda Field – was offered a spot on the show, it might not be for a while as he recently admitted to feeling "burnt out" after going on an extensive promotional tour for his album.
He said: "I hope I’ve been OK. And I hope you’ve had a good time. I’m a bit burnt out, to be honest with you. Listen, I’m having the best time. My job is absolutely amazing … I’m loving my job, I’m loving my life. But I’ve been mega busy.
"I was in Australia two minutes ago, then Spain then Germany and I’ve been talking about myself and singing at people. And I realise tonight when ‘Rock DJ’ came on I was like ‘Oh my God, there’s nothing in the tank.’"
