James Corden, Jordan Peele And Nick Kroll Make The Most 'Honest' Boy Band
Huffington Post - 2 days
The late ‘90s and early ‘00s were a rich time for boy bands ― *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees ― who sang lyrics filled with sexual innuendos our pre-pubescent ears just didn’t quite understand. But it seems there was at least one “band” that tried to keep it real.  Enter Thr33way, the “first-ever honest boy band,” formed by James Corden, Nick Kroll and Jordan Peele. In a clip from “The Late Late Show,” the three guys opened up about their group’s mission.  “We took existing boy band songs, cut through all the innuendo, and just got to the heart of what those songs are really about: hardcore sex,” Kroll explained.  The “band” released songs like “I Want a Three-Way,” set to the tune of BSB’s “I Want It That Way,” and “Quit Playin’ Games with My Penis,” set to “Quit Playin’ Games with My Heart.” Then there were hits like “End of the Choad,” “Bye Bye Bi-Sexual,” “The Butt Stuff,” and of course, “MMMBoobs.” (You can probably guess how that one went.)

James Corden Delights In Tearing Lifetime's Britney Spears Biopic To Shreds
Huffington Post - 4 days
The internet couldn’t handle how inexcusably bad Lifetime’s Britney Spears’ biopic, “Britney Ever After” was ― and neither could James Corden.  On Tuesday night, “The Late Late Show” host took delight in ripping apart the television movie, sharing many of the same observations as Spears’ fans.  “The role of Britney Spears was played by none other than the Australian actress Natasha Bassett,” he said, taking aim at the film’s poor casting choices as he showed a photo of the actress in costume on screen. “She’s the perfect person for a biopic ― if the biopic was about Tiffany Trump.”  He also poked fun at the incredibly low-budget nature of the movie and the fact that the filmmakers were unable to secure any of the rights to Spears’ music.  “Luckily, the creative masterminds behind this film came up with some Britney songs even Britney didn’t know existed,” he said. “You know the ones I’m talking about: ‘If You’re Looking For Trouble.’ It’s amazing for someo ...
