As it turns out, celebrities sometimes lie about things–and that includes James Corden.
A fan on Twitter caught the host of The Late Late Show, and its wildly popular segment Carpool Karaoke, in one of those said lies. While Corden may be the person behind the wheel, that doesn’t mean he’s the one driving around celebrities–such as Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Billie Eilish–while dueting hits.
“Saw James corden and Justin Bieber filming carpool karaoke and this is why I have trust issues — he isn’t even driving,” Twitter user @zolihonig wrote in a now-viral tweet.
Zolihonig included a video of what they spotted. In the video, Corden and Bieber can be seen sitting in the “Carpool Karaoke car” while they are getting towed along by a truck.

Fans are shook by the “revelation.”
“U WANNA TELL ME ALL THOSE TIMES I WATCHED THOSE CARPOOL KARAOKE VIDEOS JAMES CORDEN WAS JUST FAKING IT AND WASNT DRIVING AT ALL I-” Twitter user typicalbizzzle wrote.
For some, it’s kind of like finding out Santa isn’t real all over again.
“MY WHOLE LIFE IS A LIE,” Twitter user @redlego___ wrote.

the fact that james corden doesn’t actually drive during carpool karaoke must be the biggest lie since we found out that zac efron didn’t sing when he played troy bolton https://t.co/NedLpSAu6I

Yet, others can’t believe people actually thought Corden drove the car.
“People are shook that James Corden doesn’t drive during carpool karaoke…and I’m over here going…you thought he did? no one ever does. It’s called safety and filming,” Twitter user @rachsuperstarr wrote.
As Twitter user @davidblattman pointed out, it may be best the lives of Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, and many other beloved artists aren’t in the hands of a comedian driving a car while trying to belt out tunes.
I'm shocked people didn't assume this is exactly how Carpool Karaoke is filmed. You think James Corden's driving a car with the world's most famous people in it?
"James, you crashed and killed Gaga."
"Sorry! My eyes were closed when the Shallow chorus came on."
Fuck outta here. https://t.co/pLDldG7xNK
