Lady Gaga is in full promotional mode for her new album Joanne, so she stopped by The Late Late Show With James Corden on Tuesday night for what has quickly become a pop musician tradition: Carpool Karaoke. Of course, having a theater background means that Gaga's live vocals are very on point, and during her appearance on Carpool Karaoke, she belted out her hits like "Bad Romance," "Edge of Glory," "Poker Face," and "Born This Way" with ease.

What she didn't have such an easy time with was driving. Gaga just got her driver's license earlier this year, and although she was enthusiastic about taking the wheel from Corden for part of Carpool Karaoke, her driving skills clearly aren't up to par. At one point, Corden even busted out a bicycle helmet for protection. According to Gaga, her family was very supportive of her learning to drive. "It was so embarrassing, my whole family came with me to the DMV," she said. "My father cried when I got my driver's license."

The two also discussed Gaga's upcoming performance at the Super Bowl LI halftime show, which she is very excited about. "Oh shit," she said when imitating her response to finding out about the opportunity. Later, Gaga also discussed her decision to purchase more than 400 pieces of Michael Jackson's clothing at a recent auction. "I've got a 'Thriller' jacket. I've got one of his gloves, lots of his tour costumes," she said. "I actually keep them in a temperature-controlled room so that they can be preserved for the rest of time."
