Carly Rae Jepsen can now add Cosmpopolitan cover girl to her resume (underneath “Bieber Babe” and “Record Rocker” in the Experience section). Carly Rae Jepsen sat down with Cosmopolitan and talked about her rise to fame. Carly shared with Cosmo that she knew what she wanted to do at the age of seven explaining, “I used to go around the house singing, and my parents took notice. They offered me the opportunity to enter a local talent contest when I was 7. That was my first taste of being onstage. I sang Eternal Flame and Beauty and the Beast. I don’t think I understood it, but I remember being onstage in the spotlight, feeling totally at home and comfortable, and knowing it was what I was meant to do.”
Carly also shared with Cosmo the moment she knew Call Me Maybe was a crazy hit sharing, “[It was] last June in Mexico City. I was there as Justin Bieber’s special guest, and I was supposed to come on and sing Call Me Maybe and bow out. I get onstage, and there are 300,000 people. I was in a bit of a shock, and by the second verse, I lost my breath for a second… And that was the moment I knew—all 300,000 of them sang my song back to me, and they knew every word!”
Carly Rae Jepsen will be performing at The Big Jingle this Sunday, December 2 at 4:30E at the Air Canada Centre in the heart of Toronto.
