Carly Rae Jepsen posed for photographers at a hotel in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday (August 9). She was all smiles wearing a peach polka-dot top, textured black pants, and high-heeled pink and white shoes. She’s promoting her next album Kiss – due out September 18.
The singer – who is up for Best New Artist at the VMAs – sat down with MTV News to talk about Call Me Maybe.
Did she ever approach a guy like the lyrics of the song?
She admits, “Well I think in truth I’ve never actually been brave enough to go and approach a guy that way. But I kind of like to live vicariously through my music and be a braver version of myself in songs. And not only that, it’s really, that kind of flirtatious nature, I think, is easy to kind of tap into and that imagination, it’s easy to go there.”
She’s also reluctant to say Call Me Maybe is the ultimate summer hit.
“Oh, I think it’s hard to pick just one song to define the summer. I love being among the playlist of acts. That’s very cool to hear, but I think there’s so many songs that I think define 2012.”
Call her modest!
