January had originally told James on The Late Late Show, “You don’t know if you like him or if he’s a scumbag — and I think that’s why I’m attracted to him, maybe?” She added, "He asked me to battle him on Lip Sync Battle. So is that like, his way of asking me out, or does he have a problem with me? I don’t know what that was. But I declined because I don’t need to be humiliated.”
