Carly Rae Jepsen’s life has certainly changed over the past few months. The onetime “Canadian Idol” contestant is riding high off the success of hit single “Call Me Maybe,” and she just beat out her boss, Justin Bieber, on the U.K. charts, taking the #1 spot .
Of course, Jepsen credits Bieber with much of her success , and she also knows she wouldn’t be where she is without her fans. Jepsen recently took some time out of her busy schedule to stop by MTV News and answer some of your Twitter questions. She covered everything from her first impressions of Bieber to whether she believes in love at first sight.
Read below to find out what Jepsen had to say!
@AmericanBiebz: We all know what Justin thought of Carly at first, so we wanna know: What was Carly’s first impression of Justin?
Carly Rae Jepsen: I thought he was charming. He’s extremely talented — and, I mean, obviously that’s pretty well-known — but in ways that I didn’t realize. I knew that he sang, I knew that he was sort of infectious in his personality, I knew that he danced, but I didn’t know how strong of a songwriter he was, and my first introduction to him was actually in his studio and he played me a couple songs he had written, and I was really impressed and I was so glad, because I really, really liked him.
@majojimenz: Is Justin planning on taking Carly with him on tour?
Jepsen: I don’t know! We’ll have to ask Justin, but at this point we have no real idea of when we are going to be touring.
@EmmaJaneGander: Would you ever do a duet with Selena Gomez?
Jepsen: Yeah, I think I’m open to collaborating with anybody. I have, like, a dream list of people that I want to collaborate with. John Mayer is on that list and Taylor Swift, actually. I think she’s an amazing songwriter. I would imagine that would be a cool combination.
@JustinsEyebrow: Do you think you have a certain style of music, or are you up for anything?
Jepsen: I definitely have a bit of boundaries of what I like and what would be suitable to who I am as an artist, but I don’t want to put too many limits on it at the same time. Right now, I’m really attracted to pop music, I love dance songs and artists like Robyn and La Roux. And then I come from a folky background, so I would say my music is kind of a combination of all those things, but that doesn’t mean I can’t experiment more, fall in love with something else down the line.
@lovedbybieber: If Carly could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
Jepsen: World hunger.
@shortstufff21: If you could change anything about you what would it be and why?
Jepsen: I would be taller than 5’2, have some legs on me.
@carlyraeheart: Do you believe in love at first sight?
Jepsen: I believe in a very strong feeling about somebody, very strong lust at first sight. I wouldn’t go as far as love, because I feel like love takes time.
