Barbra Streisand Says She ‘Doesn’t Enjoy’ Performing After Stage Fright Hiatus

Did Streisand make you laugh?

Corden is stranded and then picked up by Streisand, who claims she doesn't put the radio on to hear music.

The famous songwriter revealed it took her four attempts to pass her written driving test to get her license renewed, claiming she was "so nervous".

Barbra Streisand was in the driver's seat for her turn at Carpool Karaoke, and the anecdotes exchanged were just as entertaining as the songs sung.

Yes, the 76-year-old is still using social media, and even tweeted a special fact about her Carpool Karaoke appearance to her fans. She says she's constantly talking and writing while driving, and that she's nervous behind the wheel.

At another point, Corden asked her about "the moment where [she] didn't perform for 27 years". "I get scared. I just don't want to disappoint people". The auto was on a tow, so she didn't drive.

So what does she say to get herself ready to go out there.

Corden is usually the one behind the wheel, but as the episode began Streisand was picking him up, since his auto had a boot on its wheel.

And while Streisand insisted that she was not a diva, she described calling the CEO of Apple to complain about her iPhone's virtual assistant, Siri.

They also discuss Streisand's stage fright, her discussion with Tim Cook over how Siri pronounced her name, and her new anti-Trump album Walls. Her new album, Walls, was inspired by her anger over the current administration, and the single, "Don't Lie to Me" is aimed directly at Trump.
