    Dear James cordon,
    My name is icela martinez I’m a big fan of yours and your show. I am
    currently reading your auto biography. And I think it is amazing and
    hilarious. It would mean a lot to me if you replied you are one of my idols
    I think you are perfect in every way.

    By the way I read the hatefull comments on your channel I reported them all
    and told them things that I never expected me to write. Don’t listen to
    them you know your as close to perfect as it gets. ( and ant and dec)

    With love ,
    Icela

    I originally thought “there’s no way that he could replicate the glory that

    This is a homophobic song and should be boycotted. It might’ve been
    acceptable in the 80s but its not now. Shame on you Paula for resurrecting
    this bigoted song.

    Mr. Cordon I think you are the best new face on late night television. I
    am a lesbian but I have always had a short list of boy crushes, you have
    knocked Johnny Depp down to #2. You are adorable and entertaining.
    Thank you for the fun!

    I lived all her songs, but “Rush Rush” was my favorite. I was in High
    School when she started her song career. I remember she choreographed Janet
    Jackson’s “Nasty Boys” (you all shoukd watch. She also was and LA Lakers
    cheerleader at 18 years old and became their choreographer. 80’s music was
    fun, it had lots of dancing and MTV played all videos. They had sexual
    innuendos but in High school kids didn’t know that. Music now doesn’t have
    as much fun dancing and there are no sexual innuendos they just come right
    out and say it. Which makes it really uncomfortable when listening to it
    with my kids.

    Big Lie that she broke her neck, she can still perform to do a worldwide
    tour, why don’t she?? I heard she broke her neck years ago that made her
    stop performing and recording, she should tour to south america, europe,
    asia, I still love her funky tracks and ballads, she is loosing a lot of
    money staying in US

    James Corden is my new hero. I used to think he was “only” a great comedy
    writer + comic actor. Now I find out there’s nothing he can’t turn his hand
    to. He comes across as a very hard-working, talented, and thoroughly nice
    bloke.
