Joining Corden on his infamous ride to work, Trainor sang along with him to some of her hit tunes, including “All About That Bass” and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.”
Trainor, who is married to actor Daryl Sabara, reminisced about her comical first meeting with her now-husband, a moment she said exemplified a “modern-day blind date” set up by Chloe Grace Moretz.
“It’s so fun and I recommend it to everyone,” Trainor said of married life. She then explained that she joined Moretz, Mortez’s then-boyfriend Brooklyn Beckham and Sabara to go bowling. It was during that date where Trainor says Beckham and Mortez encouraged the singer to kiss Sabara.
“I looked at my security guard like ‘be gone.’ So that’s what gave Daryl the cue, ‘Oh it’s going down,'” she recalled.
Trainor then said their second date was a karaoke night where the actor sang her “Your Song” by Elton John. “He’s something else. I’ve never met anyone like him. And I was like ‘I’m going to marry you.'”
Later in the car ride, Trainor discussed her resume of songwriting credits, penning songs for artists like Jennifer Lopez, Rascal Flats and Michael Buble. To test her songwriting skills, Trainor penned a mock song about traffic with Corden.
Despite having written for a myriad of A-list stars, Trainor admitted there’s one person she is the most starstruck over: Dr. Phil McGraw.
“I went to a show the other day and I couldn’t stop crying. For my birthday, my brother got me tickets to see Dr. Phil live, and I went there and it was the greatest day of my life. Everything he says is absolutely spot-on,” she explained.
Making a surprise appearance, Dr. Phil then surprised Trainor by joining them in the car when they were at a stop. After first catching a glimpse of him, Trainor screamed and, visibly excited, said: “Your teeth look so good! You’re so handsome.”
After Corden advised her that this was her moment to have her one-on-one with McGraw, Trainor admitted that she had “so many questions.” “I wrote an album called Treat Myself because I went through panic disorder … two years later I’m slaying but I was uneducated about what anxiety could do to your body,” she told McGraw. He then applauded her for being open about her struggles.
