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

Barbra Streisand Carpool Karaoke

Barbra Streisand belts out hit songs in awesome Carpool Karaoke

For this episode of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke, Barbra Streisand picked up the stranded TV host - and it was a memorable journey! The auto was on a tow, so she didn't drive.

Streisand lived up to her "Funny Girl" pedigree, bringing plenty of laughs to the segment, including when she stopped him right at the top of it.

Barbra Streisand sat down with Bill Maher and spoke about her new music inspired by the political climate under President Donald Trump. Corden did not seem all that nervous about singing next to her, which is surprising.

Walls is out now. The next one, "Don't Lie to Me", is even more direct, beginning with, "Why can't you just tell me the truth?"

"I don't want to disappoint people", she told Corden, explaining that before every show, she now says "Let go and let God". It's been a while, but she's still got it.

Streisand has battled stage fright most of her career, which once led to her taking a 27-year hiatus from touring.

"I've been driving for a long time, but I haven't driven recently because my mind is twirling and sometimes - well, not anymore on the phone, but it used to be", she said. "I get scared", she admitted. "The only thing I can do is write about it, and tweet".

So what does she say to get herself ready to go out there. She talked about the time she convinced Apple's Tim Cook to change the way Siri pronounced her name.

Walls features fresh interpretations of "What the World Needs Now" and her signature, "Happy Days Are Here Again", alongside a duet of "Imagine"/"What a Wonderful World".
