Carly Rae Jepsen - Carly Rae Jepsen on Balancing Life with Work, Infectious Track 'Call Me Maybe' Up for Two Grammys

Carly Rae Jepsen's infectious and repetitive, enormously successful single from 2012, 'Call Me Maybe' could have been just a one-hit-wonder. However, with two Grammy nominations under her belt and managing to top the Billboard charts in the US for weeks on end, it appears Jepsen's here to stay.

Speaking to the Associated Press she explained her surprise. "I was gunning maybe for Top 10 on iTunes. That was my little, mini secret goal," she said. So, appearing in the Grammys is an honor beyond her wildest dreams, it seems. Jepsen came third in Canadian Idol so while her career wasn't a dead cert she definitely had enough prior exposure to give her a leg up. 

Not only that but she's pals with runaway star, fellow Canadian, Justin Bieber. Speaking to Seventeen Magazine, reported via the Inquisitor, the 26 year old singer spoke of how he's been a guiding light for her. "Justin leads by example. I love that he works hard and has fun," she said. "I was in Paris promoting my new album, Kiss, for three days with no time off. So I went out at four in the morning to go explore the entire city. I try to make moments happen that feel very special and memorable because that's exactly how Justin does it."

She also makes time for her singer boyfriend, Matthew Koma, saying "When you meet the right person, you're just like, 'Wow! I'm having the busiest year of my life and somehow I've met an amazing person who has been a grounding force.'"
