"Aren't you lucky because I happened to be out and about!"

Apparently, the last time she went in to renew her driver's license, "I had to do the written exam", she told him.

It wasn't long before Streisand revealed how she doesn't drive much, and once accidentally drove onto the up ramp of a highway.

"This is not what I need to hear right now", Corden joked. She expressed ire over it during her 2016 tour, telling the crowd of thousands: "It's Streisand, soft, like "sand".

Babs asks Corden. It quickly cuts to the two singing the seminal show tune from Funny Girl, "Don't Rain On My Parade" - a role which won Streisand an Oscar in 1969.

"I don't get nervous nervous, but I don't enjoy it", she said of performing.

To calm herself down before a performance, she tells herself, "Let go and let god".

And while Streisand insisted that she was not a diva, she described calling the CEO of Apple to complain about her iPhone's virtual assistant, Siri. "Is that possible?'" she said. Instead of Corden in the driver's seat, as per usual, it's the Academy Award-winning actress-singer at the wheel.

But Straisand said her call to Cook wasn't the first time she reached out to a tech CEO for help. "All I can do is write about it", she says. "When I couldn't figure something out on my computer". "Every song relates to something about what's going on with these hard times".

They also discuss Streisand's stage fright, her discussion with Tim Cook over how Siri pronounced her name, and her new anti-Trump album Walls.
