Despite Britney Spears refraining from using names, it was quite obvious to fans and audiences that the singer was talking about James Corden. As Spears told the radio station about her experience, she mentioned, 

It was fun, it was really fun. The guy was just so incredibly sweet. I had no idea he has kids, he’s a teddy bear. I was like, ‘I just want to hug you right now.’ It was a little awkward, like, driving by grocery stores. People walk by and there are like 18 cameras around us. This is just so awkward.”
