It wasn't really a surprise Kanye West he did bigger things when he joined James Corden in the latest installment Car Karaokebut we never expected how much it would change the formula.
First of all, there was no car, because this segment was again called "Airpool Karaoke" due to the appearance of Kanye. This is because he joined the host of the "Late Late Show" on a flight to Los Angeles, not just a fake ride to work. But it's not just Kanye and James. The entire Kanye choir joined them when he took James to a Sunday service in the sky.
Finally, with the last major format change, there was no singing of Kanye's best hits. Instead, the choir presented part of the gospel style music from the new album Kanye, as well as some music from various events of Sunday services.
In fact, Kanye spat the lines only once throughout the entire 20-minute segment, but even that was nothing. It was simply an improvised "Jesus Walks" spectacle for James and his film crew.
However, between the musical interludes, things became more familiar when Kanye opened up his new spiritual awakening to James, talking about how he first came up with the idea of founding a church and how his life changed.
He also spoke honestly about his finances, a poem he wrote that told him that he would be famous, and that he would say to the doubters that his newly discovered faith is not real. Oh, and if you thought that he and Kim finished their four children, it is not even close to graduation. After casting a funny shadow on Kris Humphries, Kanye dropped a bomb that James has not yet emerged from.
A quick kick came after Kanye said people didn't think it would be fun if he got married. James told everyone that it would be fun to marry Kim Kardsashian, Kanye quickly said, "Well, not Kris Humphries."

Where it all began
It's crazy to imagine a moment of revelation that you'll be famous, but that's what Kanye said one day on the escalator at Virgin Megastore. The future superstar just wrote a line and suddenly knew. "I remember saying," Breathe now, because it will be the last moment I can walk in public, "he said.
Line? "He has a dark-skinned friend who looks like Michael Jackson / He has a dark-skinned friend who looks like Michael Jackson."
The line will appear in "Slow Jamz", which will become West's first single, along with Twista and Jamie Foxx who work with him.
"I knew later that I wouldn't be able to walk the streets for the rest of my life," said West. When James was surprised that he was so sure of this single, West added: "And the success of this line. I was such that I would be famous on this line. "
Although Kanye certainly made a turbulent personal journey toward becoming a Sunday Ministry guy, he believes that all this was an essential part of God's plan for him.
"I think he wanted me to suffer more and wanted people to see my suffering and see my pain, put a mark on me and let me go through all the experiences, human experiences, so now when I talk about how Jesus saved me, more people can relate to this experience than if it were simply: "Oh, we've grown up with this guy's music and now he's a superstar," Kanye explained. "It's less convincing than, Oh, this guy had a mental breakdown, this guy was in debt, this guy went through [a lot in his life]. "
And according to Kanye, when he was hospitalized as part of this process, he realized he had to "start a church in Calabasas." I felt that I had to do it, that God put it on my heart, and now He just takes me to new levels, and us to other levels that we had never imagined before. "
What started in Calabasas became a travel event that gathered hundreds of thousands of people. And now he even took him into the sky for Corden's television audience.
The past regrets
Kanye has signaled some of his more infamous fooling around over the years, such as "when I was at the MTV Awards, holding a bottle of Hennessy on stage," which of course refers to the moment he bombed Taylor Swift's acceptance speech in 2009 to declare that Beyonce should have won. But when James asked if he regrets any of his previous actions, Kanye answered no.
"I don't regret it and I have no shame," he said, completely shifting gears and adding: "It's the most important thing that I'm a perfectionist. It's such a blasphemous statement that as a human you can improve everything. God is the only perfect thing. So the only perfect thing is God's plan. "
Kanye also at one point claimed that he had successfully made Swift's career jumping with her on stage, but at other times he apologized and admitted that his own ego is his greatest enemy. Now he seems to have reconciled with his past and believes that all this has allowed him to lead him in God's service.
In fact, he now claims to believe that God also uses Kanye's wealth to boast at this point. He even went so far as to do what you should never talk about, and specify his own figures in dollars.
"I made $ 115 million last year, and I still have $ 35 million in debt," Kanye said. "This year, I was refunded $ 68 million from my tax returns. And people say oh don't talk about these numbers. No, people must hear someone indebted by the system talking about these numbers matters now as they serve Christ. "
When James asked him for clarification, Kanye stated that he believed his current success was attributed to his turning to God. "He's showing off. Just showing off, Kanye said. "Yeezy [is] worth $ 3 billion. Is the number one brand searched by Google in the world. He shows up. Now I'm getting to work for God and he'll show up soon! "
A growing family
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have four children, and James Corden has three. When James asked if Kanye would recommend the fourth, Kanye didn't even seem interested in staying here.
"The richest thing you can have is as many children as possible," he said.
"Are you saying you are going to throw at five?" James asked, a little surprised.
"For seven," said Kanye. "Seven children. "" He even said that he and Kim talked about it.
But as he pointed out Cheat SheetKim recently told her social media observers that she wasn't sure she could handle more than four children thanks to her busy schedule and future plans. So maybe they still talk about it.
Doubters Wake Up
James ended the discussion with a very important but difficult question. He asked Kanye how he would respond to someone who may doubt the sincerity of this latest event in Kanye West's history. After all, not so long ago, his erratic behavior drew him into tabloids.
Is this just another erratic change in behavior that will change again?
"I would say: when you go to sleep, do you agree that you are sleeping, when you are sleeping, and when you wake up, do you agree that you are not sleeping when you are awake? Do you agree that these are two different states? asked Kanye James, who agreed.
"People who don't believe are walking dead. They are sleeping and this is awakening. "
