Justin Bieberâ€™s protÃ©gÃ©, Carly Rae Jepsen, is the cover girl of the latest issue of Billboard Magazine (June/July 2012). The addicting-hit â€œCall Me, Maybe,â€ which is on the #1 spot on the Hot 100 chart for the second week in a row, has already been dubbed the Song Of The Summer.
Despite many labeling the 26 year-old singer as a one hit wonder, Carly is determined to prove this is just the beginning of a promising career following the overnight success of â€œCall Me, Maybe.â€
Here are some highlights from Carly Rae Jepsenâ€™s Billboard interview:
On her overnight success: â€œPretty much every day, thereâ€™s a moment where Iâ€™m having to pinch myself and think, â€˜When did this happen to my life?â€™â€
On being positive: “It’s the same mentality I had on ‘Canadian Idol’. I placed third on that show, and everyone was like, ‘are you upset that you didn’t win?’ I was like, ‘No, I’m so stoked that I came in third!’ It’s farther than I thought I would go.”
Manager Scooter Braun on Carlyâ€™s will to succeed: “I sat down Carly in my backyard and said, â€˜This is not going to be fun. Youâ€™re going to be so tired.â€™ And she looked at me and said, â€˜Scooter, I donâ€™t care how hard I have to work. Iâ€™m going to do it. This is what Iâ€™ve wanted my entire life.â€™â€
