Barbra Streisand Still ‘Doesn’t Enjoy’ Performing After Suffering Stage Fright
Barbra Streisand broke major news on The Late Late Show with James Corden Thursday. On the November 1 episode, the singer sang some of her hits like "Funny Girl" — but she didn't just belt out tunes. Barbra discussed how she feels before performing, after taking 27 years off because of stage fright. She also shared her driving skills. Scroll through for video of their discussion.
Barbra turned Carpool Karaoke into an episode of carpool confessions with James. She told James, "I get scared, I don't want to disappoint people" when he asked her stage fright.
The Grammy award winner also shared a secret that may have had the TV host second-guessing his decision to be the passenger and let her get behind the wheel. "I had to do the writing test exam. I failed three times," she said.
James seemed to take the news well, telling her, "To be honest if this is how I go out, I’ll take it. It’s a good way to go out."
Back to the singer, who just released her album Walls, she recently graded Bradley Cooper’s remake of her 1976 film A Star Is Born. She told the New York Times she hasn’t seen the entire thing but that the actor showed her the opening and she “really liked” it.
