Jul 12, 2012

Carly Rae Jepsen called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Thursday to chat about the internet’s infatuation with covering her hit “Call Me Maybe,” making new music with Owl City, and her acting debut on an upcoming episode of 90210.

On “Call Me Maybe” Parodies: Since it’s release, “Call Me Maybe” has inspired many parodies of the hit song. So, does Carly watch the parodies? “I don’t think I’ve seen all of them, but I’ve seen enough to be pretty blown away. I saw the Cookie Monster one the other day. Sesame Street, man. It doesn’t get any better than that!”

One Carly had not seen was from YouTuber Rob Bradford who used the song as a pick up line by using the lyrics to see if he could get girls numbers…and he got the number every time! “Wow. 100% success rate, this is like cupid. I love it,” Carly exclaims. Has the singer had guys use this use the pick up line on her? “I’ve had it said to me before, I’m not going to lie, it’s quite adorable when it happens,” she says. Check out Rob’s video below!

Does Carly Have A Boyfriend? She tells us: “I do, I do, I do.” So, is this special guy pre or post the “Call Me Maybe” fame? “Pre I guess…pre world. I mean a little bit of something going on in Canada, but nothing compared to all of this,” Carly says.

Carly Is Going To Be On 90210! “I’m actually going to be shooting that next week. So, I’m not sure of the exact date, but that’s kind of a trip. That was one of my favorite shows growing up, and the new one’s awesome too,” she she tells us. “It will be my TV debut.”

On Her New Song with Owl City:“I’m really excited about that song ‘Good Time.’ It’s a track that Adam had written and I was so happy when he asked me to sing on it,” Carly says. “I kind of found out through Scooter [Braun] that they were interested in having me sing the song. I had already heard it once and I was in love with it. So, I was really kind of excited, I jumped at the chance.”
