"I never performed in from of so many kids, and then my DJ didn't have the clean version of my songs," Cardi recalled. "I just felt so awkward saying the curse words. But those kids were having a good time, and I had a good time too."
The embarrassing experience led Corden to ask the artist if she'd ever played to an exclusively older audience, and she admitted that she's never gotten the opportunity... so the TV host drove her to the Culver City Senior Center for an impromptu engagement!
Taking over the mic at a Mind/Body Dance Class, Cardi kicked things off in front of a small group of senior citizens with a fun (only somewhat profane) performance of her song "I Like It," that went over surprisingly well with the audience.
Cardi sang, smiled and danced with some of the seniors, one of whom seemed to fancy the rapper quite a bit.
"I'm very pleased to met you," the older gentleman, who said his name was Gunter, told Cardi as they danced together. "Are you looking for a significant other? Are you available?"
The question took Cardi by surprise as she laughingly stammered, "Uh, I, um, sure!"
The impromptu show went over incredibly well, as Cardi seemingly introduced herself to a previously untapped market of potential fans.
Throughout Cardi's ride with Corden, the rapper seemed to be having a tremendous amount of fun, getting super into rapping her own tracks and sharing some insights into her personal life -- specifically her penchant for fancy cars, despite the fact that she doesn't know how to drive.
"I have a Lambo, a Lamborghini truck, a have a Bentley truck, I have a Maybach and I have a Suburban," Cardi said, gleefully listing off her collection of insanely expensive vehicles.
"OK, so, five cars," Corden replied. "So here's my biggest question: You can't drive. So what's the point of having the cars?"
A source tells ET that the "Carpool Karaoke" segment was shot on Nov. 15 at the senior center, and Kulture was not on set.
As for the course, that took about an hour or two for the crew to set up and was shot in the parking lot. There was no security or kill switch for the car, and no equipment was really damaged, aside from a GoPro getting scratched.
