The Late Late Show host says he hasn’t given up on the evasive rapper just yet.
The 38-year-old host revealed in an interview with Britain’s GQ magazine that the Gold Digger hitmaker has been booked to take a ride in the mobile karaoke booth for some time but has wiggled his way out of it on two occassions so far.
He said: “Kanye has been booked to do Carpool Karaoke now twice and both times something came up. He’ll do it eventually. He wants to do it.“
But he’s not too upset because Kanye apologised and sent him a funky bunch of roses that he’ll never forget. He said: ”[When he cancelled he sent] about three dozen white roses, of course. Arranged in the shape of a cube. What could be more Kanye than that?“
James has enjoyed a ride with Michelle Obama and Missy Elliot recently, but desperately wants Beyoncé to get in the car for a sing-along.
He said: ”[The dream would be] Beyoncé. It would break the internet. She’s on tour right now. We’re working on it.“
Turning to a sore subject for the star, James says Britain had an "expectation of failure” when he embarked on a career stateside because it is “elitist”.
He said: “If we’d made this show for ITV to air at eight o'clock on Saturday night people would have destroyed it. I’ve come to the conclusion that it is about class…

"Douglas Booth has got a great career, he’s a brilliant actor, but he’s never going to encounter the sort of s**t like I’ve had. Nor will Tom Hiddleston. Nor Eddie Redmayne. Nor Benedict Cumberbatch.”
Listing his achievments as evidence, he said: “Look at my career: I was in a really good play at the National Theatre, The History Boys, which then moved to Broadway and won six Tony awards. We came back. I wrote a sitcom (Gavin And Stacey) that did really, really well.

He continued: “I did a couple of films, got a play in New York, One Man, Two Guvnors, and subsequently won every best actor award going. I mean, that’s quite a lot of good stuff!“
"I fear acting is becoming an elitist sport and I worry about where that lands us culturally. I really do.”
You’re reading the wrong news, James ;) we love you here!
