Talk about being lucky and talented!
Newcomer Carly Rae Jepsen recently answered questions at Radio Disney about her music and the person who brought her to fame – Justin Bieber. Speaking to Hollywoodlife – the 26-year-old shared that the pop star approached her with a direct message on Twitter after hearing her song Call Me Maybe.
She said, “I got a direct message from [Justin] on Twitter. I’m not even joking. And it said, ‘I really believe in you.’ What do you say to that?!”
“The first night I met him he showed me three or four songs from his upcoming album and I was like, ‘Those are great!’ He said, ‘What do you think of this fourth one?’ And I said, ‘That one’s great!’ And he said, ‘Do you want to sing on it?’. The song itself is really pretty. It was actually my favorite out of the ones he showed me. It’s a duet. It feels like a good fit.”
Justin even surprised her with his songwriting abilities.
The former Canadian Idol contestant said, “I was personally shocked to find out how much of his material he writes. He sings and he dances and he’s adorable. And on top of it, he writes! I didn’t know that about him. He exceeded all my expectations.”
