Cher & James Corden – I Got You Bae [VIDEO]

Rolling Stone reviews:

Cher joined James Corden Thursday to perform “I Got You, Bae,” a modernized version of Sonny & Cher’s 1965 hit “I Got You Babe,” on The Late Late Show. “I’m going to do one of my favorite songs tonight,” the singer told the crowd. “But I want to do it in a different way.”

Corden walked out onstage dressed, awkwardly, as Cher. Tossing around a black wig, he noted that Cher playing herself was “a bit obvious.” The two Chers filled their goofy duet with lyrics about love in 2016, exploring topics like “Netflix and chill,” deleting Internet porn history and making a relationship “Facebook offish.”

“They say we’re young and we don’t know/ How to find love without using your phone,” Cher crooned. “I don’t know if all that’s true/ ‘Cause you swiped me and, baby, I swiped you,” Corden replied.

Pet Shop Boys were to have also been on last night’s show, but Neil Tennant is ill.

      Can’t wait for the taco trucks to show up! Sent my vote off this morning.

    • Rex

      At this point I’m ready to down a pitcher of margaritas.

      • EweTaw

        I will vote early and then fly to San Diego to spend November 8th in Tijuana/Rosarito to enjoy pitchers of margaritas with like-minded friends. One only lives through this hellish campaign once. I’m willing to do anything to make it a better experience.

    • EweTaw

      I want.

    • another_steve

          RIVER:
          It’s my birthday. The Doctor took me ice skating on the River Thames in 1814. The last of the Great Frost Fairs. He got Stevie Wonder to sing for me on the London Bridge.
          RORY:
          Stevie Wonder sang in 1814?
          RIVER:
          Yes, he did. But you must never tell him.

  • Lazycrockett

    Neil got food poisoning just FYI.

  • SoCalGal20

    Fun!

    Apparently Dyn’s DDoS is now affecting the West Coast. For me it only really seems to be causing problems with twitter.

      Quitcherbitchin. You can buy all the wall paper paste you want for $5 a bag at Home Depot.

    • Lane

      I’ve seen a few more Shave Ice trucks lately, but I wasn’t really keeping track.

    • PRW

      We got a food truck that sells spam musubi, so there has been some progress …

  • Rex

    Damn, Cher at 70.
    I can only hope to have that much surgery, makeup and good lighting when I’m 70.

    • SoCalGal20

      Have you seen her mom? She’s beautiful too! Good genes are definitely in that mix.

    • another_steve

      Judy Collins is 77 and has allowed herself — her looks — to go more or less “au naturel” in this phase of her life. I was at a recent concert of hers and didn’t notice any obvious cosmetic surgery.

      Proof that growing older doesn’t mean the loss of beauty.

      • Rex

        A neighbor, who has since moved, was one of those natural beauties. In her mid-70s she is elegant and beautiful. She looks lovely without a bit of makeup and her natural silver hair. Even out working in her garden she was the picture of grace. Beautiful on the inside too, she and her husband treated me so well and my being gay was never an issue. I visited her and her husband, whose health is not the best, this past summer, and it was so nice to catch up. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beauty on the inside is the most important.

        • another_steve

          “…and the beauty on the inside is the most important.”

          Indeed.

          Well said.

    • bzrd

      Cher on the inside and WTF did she do to her beautiful natural face???

      Sorry everyone but she destroyed it and looks horrid

  • EweTaw

    Cher is 11 years older than Vanna White!

    • Rex

      She’s 11 years older than me.

      • BearEyes

        Vanna? Is that you?
        LOL

        • Rex

          Damn. Blew my cover. I’ll give you a vowel if you keep this quiet.

          • BearEyes

            quoting Fonzie
            Eeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  • Lazycrockett
  • Rex

    Slightly OT, but TV related; did anyone watch the Rocky Horror remake last night?
    What did you think?

    • Lazycrockett

      It seemed from what I watched there was no joy in it. It seemed very heavy and labored.

      • Philly Mike

        Good point.

    • Itsatarp

      Too shiny and polished. No grit or edge. There were though some cute little Easter Eggs, like the Warhol clone and the Aladdin Sane lightening bolt.

  • fuzzybits

    I thought The Kills pardon the expression killed it. I’ve developed a small girl crush on Alison Mosshart. https://youtu.be/urPxe4jxdt8

  • Itsatarp

    I think the thing I love most about Cher is she is willing to poke fun at herself.

  • The Professor

    Love them both, but this is stupid.

  • EqualityForAll

    Don’t get close to her face with a needle – there would be a Botox explosion.

  • douglas

    Bae is what gay guys call their partner in the Philippines instead of babe or honey.

  • Aman InAmsterdam

    This was fun. I love the fact that she doesn’t take herself too seriously. She still has that unique voice. I was fortunate to have interviewed her in the 90s. Sadly it was at a press junket, so there were 10 other European journos sitting around a table in the London Dorchester Hotel, and each of us could only ask 1 question. Still…… 🙂

    I hope Mr Tennant will be his witty self again soon.
