On Thursday night's Late Late Show, Corden, 43, told the story of how he acquired the sticky collector's item from Dion after Adele shared it during her 73 Questions with Vogue video, calling it her "proudest possession."

"It's pretty amazing," Adele, 33, said in the video. "James Corden — who's a friend of mine but also does Carpool Karaoke, which I did — did one with her. He knew how much of a fan I was of her and he made her spit her gum into a piece of paper and he framed it for me."

  Opal Lee’s Juneteenth dream came true, but she isn’t done FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Opal Lee's dream of seeing Juneteenth become a federal holiday was finally realized over the summer, but the energetic woman who spent years rallying people to join her push for the day commemorating the end of slavery is hardly letting up on a lifetime of work teaching and helping others. Lee, who celebrated her 95th birthday Thursday, has devoted decades to making a difference in her Texas hometown of Fort Worth. She then saw her legacy in recent years stretch far beyond the city as she worked to get national recognition for Juneteenth, and stood beside President Joe Biden as he signed into law the bill making June 19 a federal holiday that comm

"The weekend before we had shot [Carpool Karaoke], we went on a little weekend away to Mexico, my family, [Adele], her son and we spent a weekend together," he explained. "And the following Friday I was shooting the Carpool with Céline Dion and Adele just loves Céline Dion."

Corden said that Adele and Dion had only crossed paths once and the "Easy on Me" songstress was just "starstruck by her." So, right before he and Dion embarked on their car ride, Corden asked for Dion's piece of gum. He explained that Dion was looking for something with which to throw it out and Corden quickly ripped a piece of paper from a script and handed it to her.

"And I said, 'Please keep it safe,'" he continued. "And then I gave it to [Adele] for her birthday. She's a difficult person to buy for. A candle doesn't cut it!"

The silly story comes weeks before Adele is set to release her album 30 on Nov. 19. The LP — which features single "Easy on Me" — is set to touch on her divorce from Simon Konecki.
