Carly Rae Jepsen (born 21st November 1985)
Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian popstar who shot to international fame with her number one hit 'Call Me Maybe'.
Net worth: Carly Rae Jepsen has a net worth of $1 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Musical career: Carly Rae Jepsen came third in the fifth series of 'Canadian Idol' in 2007. She released her first single 'Tug Of War' and a 'Sunshine on My Shoulders' cover in 2008, ahead of the release of her debut album 'Tug Of War' via labels MapleCore and Fontana North. The album also featured the duet song 'Sour Candy' with Marianas Trench's Josh Ramsay. In 2009, she hit the road with Marianas Trench, Shiloh, The New Cities and Mission District. In 2011, she released the number one single 'Call Me Maybe' through 604 Records, produced by Ramsay. After the song was heard by Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, the song went international through School Boy Records and Interscope Records. With such a sudden surge of attention, her second album was post-poned with some of the tracks from it being released as an EP entitled 'Curiosity'. Her next album 'Kiss' came out in 2012, featuring the track 'This Kiss'. That year saw her make a cameo in '90210'. That year, she and Adam Young were sued with singer Allyson Nichole Burnett claiming their song 'Good Time' sounded a lot like her own tune 'AH, It's a Love Song'. Jepsen refused to performed for the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree in 2013 on the grounds that the organisation still has a policy banning gay men from joining. In 2013, she released remix album 'Kiss: The Remix'.
Personal life: Carly Rae Jepsen grew up in Mission, British Columbia where she went to Heritage Park Secondary School. Her parents are Alexandra and Larry Jepsen. She went to the Canadian College of Performing Arts. Since 2013, she has been dating Matthew Koma.
The video was recorded in March 2015 before the British general election, but was quickly shelved and never broadcast, its creators sworn to secrecy.
Former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg spent close to £8,000 on a parody version of Carly Rae Jepsen’ music video for ‘I Really Like You’ in the run-up to last year’s general election, it has been revealed.
The ex-deputy Prime Minister is seen hamming it up, re-creating Tom Hanks’ famous role in the music video, which became a viral sensation in March 2015. However, where Hanks is seen walking down the streets of New York City, Clegg’s video sees him strutting the mean environs of Gravesend in Kent.

BBC Radio 1 DJ Grimshaw brought together a variety of celebs for the affectionate, fully-clothed parody version of Kanye's now-infamous 'Famous'.
Unlike Kanye’s controversial clip, in which incredibly life-like waxworks lie completely naked in the same bed, in the self-styled ‘Safe For Work’ parody version all the celebrities are fully clothed.
The affectionate clip also features the likes of Meghan Trainor, Nick Jonas, the pop-punk act Five Seconds of Summer, And & Dec and Craig David.
Hudgens played Rizzo in the TV special, which aired live on Fox on Sunday night.
Vanessa Hudgens took part in Fox’s special ‘Grease Live’ event on Sunday evening, just hours after announcing her father’s death. Hudgens played Rizzo in the special, the role made famous by Stockard Channing in the original film, alongside Julianne Hough as Sandy and Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko.
Vanessa Hudgens starred as Rizzo in ‘Grease Live’.
Just hours before the broadcast Hudgens announced on twitter that her beloved father Greg had lost his battle with cancer. "I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers," Hudgens wrote.

Jack Antonoff gives away some unique remixes as he begins work on album two.
Bleachers have got involved with Google Play's Free Album of the Week promotion by giving away a new album entitled 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 2', which is now available to download completely free of charge for a limited time only - so grab it quickly while the offer lasts.
Jack Antonoff continues his Steel Train tradition with 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 2'
The album is rather a companion album to Bleachers' debut album 'Strange Desire', featuring all the best tunes re-worked by stellar artists such as Sia ('Like a River Runs'), Charli XCX ('Rollercoaster') and Carly Rae Jepsen ('Shadow') among others. It's a reward for all the devotion fans have shown to Jack Antonoff and his latest pop project, as well as all his previous work with the likes of Fun. and, of course, Steel Train. 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 2', in fact, follows Steel Train's 2010 remix collection ('Terrible Thrills, Vol. 1') which had appearances the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Tegan and Sara, and Amanda Palmer, not to mention Jack's older sister Rachel Antonoff.
Her next single 'Run Away With Me' comes out in July.
Fans have been eager for this moment since the release of 'I Really Like You' in March, and now Carly Rae Jepsen has finally announced details of her forthcoming third album 'Emotion'. If that wasn't exciting enough, she's also got a new single coming even sooner.
'Emotion' is set to drop later this summer
After the success of 2012 album 'Kiss', featuring the sing-a-long epic 'Call Me Maybe', Ms. Jepsen had a range of writers and producers clamouring to work with her for this, her new album, 'Emotion'. Recorded in studios in Los Angeles, New York and Stockholm, the popstar got to share her album writing process with some musical legends such as Sia, Greg Kurstin and Peter Svensson among many others.
Carly Rae Jepsen totally fangirled on Tom Hanks on her 'I Really Like You' video.
If there's one thing Carly Rae Jepsen never expected to be doing, it's watching film legend Tom Hanks mime her lyrics on the set of a music video. But that's exactly what happened with her new tune 'I Really Like You'. It's safe to say, she really likes Tom Hanks.
Carly Rae Jepsen really likes Tom Hanks
If you haven't seen the video already, you're the worst. Just kidding. It features the 'Captain Phillips' star going about his day to day business on a cold day in New York, with the hilariously peculiar twist that he's apparently singing the words to Jepsen's new single 'I Really Like You'; the first from her forthcoming studio album. Yes; we immediately imagined Hanks singing along to 'Call Me Maybe' too. If only. And despite his credentials as an amazing double Oscar-winning Hollywood superstar, he was surprisingly easy to bring on board.
The ‘Birdman’ actor hosted SNL for the third time this weekend, bringing a few of his most famous characters along for the ride.
Michael Keaton returned to ‘SNL’ on Saturday evening for the first time in 23 years and left us all wondering why he’d been gone for so long. The Oscar nominated actor paid homage to a few of his most famous characters during his hosting stint, even if their appearances were a little more fleeting than some fans would have liked.
Michael Keaton took the reign of 'SNL' this Saturday
Keaton first hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ 33 years ago when he was an up and coming comedic actor and was still a few years away from donning the Batman cape. Now aged 63, the actor is enjoying a career renaissance thanks to the Oscar winning Birdman, but that doesn’t mean fans have forgotten about Keaton’s other classic performances.
The ‘Call Me Maybe’ singer has given us an unlikely pairing as Hanks teams up with Bieber.
‘Call Me Maybe’ singer Carly Rae Jepsen is back and she’s sure bringing out the big guns for her latest music video. In the video for ‘I Really Like You’, Oscar winner Tom Hanks shows off his lip syncing skills on a frosty New York winter morning, while the singer and her actor pal are later joined by a surprise guest in the form of pop star Justin Bieber, who also braves the cold for a group dance at the end.
Carly Rae Jepsen really, really likes you
The video shows Hanks walking through New York who miming to Jepsen’s single as he encounters fans and friends on the street on his way to set. But as Jepsen joins him for the big dance number at the end, fellow Canadian pop star (and Scooter Braun client) Justin Bieber makes a surprise appearance, joining Forest Gump for some synchronised dancing.
Are the Bottle Boys the next big YouTube thing or have they gone straight for television?
Covers of classic tracks and unconventional instruments are a big thing on youtube, so you can bet the Bottle Boys’ rendition of Billie Jean got some attention after it was posted this week. The Bottle Boys are a Danish band, who cover popular songs, using (you guessed it) glass bottles.

No-one could imagine that Justin Bieber and Slipknot would ever combine to make musical magic together, but someone did it and it was pretty great. These other mad mash-ups work too, against all odds.
There are certain things in life that don’t sound like they should ever go together, but then you put them together and...they just do. Peanut butter and jelly, French fries dipped in chocolate milkshakes, Justin Bieber and Slipknot. Huh? Yep, you heard us right! Some musical masters out there are just capable of seeing the potential for a great/totally bonkers mash-up song, when the rest of us could never imagine mixing two totally different artists together. The result can be oddly hypnotic and scarily addictive. Take these mad, but surprisingly great, mash-ups for example.
You’d never imagine that Carly Rae Jepsen, she of super cheesy ‘Call Me Maybe’ fame, could ever be teamed up with industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails and the result not make you want to claw your ears off. Call Me a Hole, the Carley Rae Jepsen vs. Nine Inch Nails mash-up is surprisingly easy listening. The poppy beats of Miss Swift behind Trent Reznor’s recognisable rasp kind of works, perhaps these guys could actually get together for a legitimate collaboration one day!
