While both have released Eighties inspired albums, Taylor's '1989' and Carly's 'EMOTION', the 'Call Me Maybe' singer insists that both records sound completely different.
She said: ''I remember hearing '1989' and thinking Taylor's doing Eighties too but I wasn't worried because we've done the Eighties in such a different way, I certainly don't consider it a contest.''
Carly, who shot to fame with her infectious pop hit 'Call Me Maybe' also admitted that taking on the role of 'Cinderella' on Broadway was a bad career move but insisted she would do it again in a heartbeat.
She told the Sunday Times Culture magazine: ''It wasn't a wise career-move but getting out of the bubble I'd been in was so appealing. I'd always wanted to be on Broadway and I wanted time to work out what music to make next - i.e. not more 'Call Me Maybes'. It was one of the craziest challenges I've ever taken on. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.''
Carly's retro-pop record is very different to her previous sound and she explained: ''I just kept writing until I found a sound that I loved. I think of the early songs as reeds that eventually pulled me in this direction. To me, it's just an album that reflects my personality. That's probably why there's so much pining over love and intimacy in it.''
