Canadian songstress Carly Rae Jepsen has been travelling the world over the past month, promoting her hit single Call Me Maybe which launched her into stardom.
Fellow Canadian Justin Bieber even sought out the star after hearing her song, signing her to his manager’s record label!
In a recent interview, Carly talked about how Justin has changed her life, and what her newfound success has been like.
“A lot of the reason people have been able to hear it is because of Justin’s support. But why it is responding as well is kind of a mystery to me, but it is wonderful.” Carly explained. “So far Justin hasn’t taken on the boss attitude, which is nice. He’s been more of a really good supporter and friend. He’s also given me a bit of a boost of confidence because you struggle for so many years.”
Is Carly competitive with Justin at all? “Oh, I think we had a little friendly competition going on but he’s a good sport about it. And I think he knows, as I know, that none of that success would have been possible without his support.”
Carly even revealed where the inspiration from the hit single came from! “The line ‘Before you came into my life I missed you so bad’ was in fact written and inspired by the guy that I am seeing now, actually. He’s got like three CDs written for him so it’s old news, he is used to it. That was the truth for me and him; I was like ‘Oh, life could be this good? Awesome.’
The song has made it so big that stars like Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and Justin Bieber made a video of themselves rocking out to it! “I was talking to my mom at the time and it popped up on my Facebook. There had been a couple of mock videos that fans had done and stuff, I thought it was one of those. But I was like ‘that guy looks like Justin Bieber and that girl looks like Selena Gomez’ and by the time Ashley Tisdale came on I was like ‘Mom, I got to go!’ and I had a little freak out.”
“Miley Cyrus did one too, it’s insane. It’s kind of a cool little thing that has started – celebrities but also lots of different fans putting together videos. And everyone always looks so happy.”

With her latest movie The Hunger Games still drawing in big crowds at the theatres, actress Jennifer Lawrence has been busy setting up some new roles for the future. According to Deadline, Jennifer is in the talks to star in a new movie The Glass Castle.
Lionsgate has just bought the rights to the memoir, written by Jeannette Walls. The Glass castle is said to be about the author’s “unorthodox childhood as one of four children who had to fend for themselves after their eccentric parents proved unable.”
Jennifer already has multiple projects already in the works, and is expected to head back to her role of Katniss Everdeen soon, in the second movie Catching Fire. She’ll also be included in the X-Men First Class sequel!
