If you thought it was safe to come out onto the internet because, in your misguided estimation you for some puzzling reason believed that the Justin Bieber news onslaught was over, think again. The Justin Bieber news train ain’t stopping baby! Not at least for another 12 months. So if you’re Biebs allergic, turn off your router, descend into your bunker, crack open a can of meat, roll in a few water barrels, and pop a few carbohydrate supplement pills. It’s gonna be a long one.

For the rest of us, who just have to grin and bear it with a stiff upper lip, Bieber continued his late night television campaign, a tour that led him to riding shotgun with James Corden for “The Late Late Show’s” “Carpool Karaoke” segment. Despite James Corden languishing on the periphery of late night television since his appointment as host of the program, his producers and writers have found themselves an enjoyable recurring bit with "Carpool Karaoke."

This is actually Bieber’s second time on “Carpool Karaoke,” and this sequel delivers on all points. During the 12 minute clip, Bieber and Corden rap along to Kanye’s “Stronger,” belt out Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic,” Bieber shields Corden from scum-sucking paparazzi and foam-mouthed Beliebers, and the two cutely pick out “swag” for each other to wear. Watch the fully-bloomed bromance play out below.
