Carly Rae Jepsen brightens the March cover of Seventeen. Wearing a colorful dress and an eclectic necklace – the Call Me Maybe singer is all smiles. In the interview – the 27-year-old shares her struggles on trying to make it in the music business.
She said, “In college there was a time I felt lost and had the blues. I wanted to write songs, but I didn’t know how to make it a career. But I also knew I’d be happy working eight minimum-wage jobs to try to pull it off.”
According to US magazine she added, “I was doing every job imaginable to pay rent while I was pursuing this career. I guess I like the hunger of not knowing if things will work out.”
Jepsen also shared her thoughts on Justin Bieber stating, “Justin leads by example” and “I love that he works hard and has fun.”
Because of his lifestyle – she has learned to do the same.
“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.”
Luckily she has found love again after splitting with Jordi Ashworth last summer.
Referring to singer Matthew Koma, “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. I don’t think anything can get in the way if you both really want it badly.”
Meanwhile Carly’s next award show will be at The Grammys.
