Carly Rae Jepsen’s age may surprise you

Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy single “Call Me Maybe” was the biggest hit of the summer. She’s often linked to teen pop star Justin Bieber because she has a recording deal with Schoolboy Records, the label run by Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun. They’re also both from Canada. Interestingly, “Call Me Maybe” was the first song by a Canadian artist to reach the top of the digital chart since Justin’s hit single “Baby” in January 2010. And when Carly Rae made her American TV debut on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, she was joined by Justin. That may be why most people assume she’s in her teens. She told New York Magazine‘s Vulture she doesn’t mind when fans are surprised to learn her real age, which is 26, saying, “It’s extremely flattering. What woman doesn’t want to hear that she looks younger?” Carly Rae is set to go on tour with Bieber for his Believe tour, and she’s looking forward to it. “I’m really stoked. I love his album, and I know his whole crew of people and they’ve definitely become like family to me, so it’s going to be good.”

    LOL – and if she were Asian, she’d be 36 and look like she’s in her teens! 🙂

    Fooled me! I thought she was between 17 and 19.

    If you look closely, you can tell she’s old. It’s just all that makeup she piles on that fools everybody

    Don’t care. I just want to see the nude pictures of her that were leaked recently. (Or was it a sex tape?)

    Believing she was a teen was the only excuse for that wretched song. An adult has no business putting out such drivel.

    “If you look closely, you can tell she’s old.”

    You think 26 is old? OldER than a teenager, yes. “OLD”….no. Clint Eastwood is old.

    You may need a dictionary, darlin.

    @ me myself i…an adult has no business putting out that drivel? why, is she supposed to sing some dark depressing emo song so you can feel good about yourself? I guess you didn’t like the Beatles either lol. all those heavy songs like, when i’m sixty-four, money don’t buy me love, she loves you, twist and shout lol. no one said you had to buy her music or even listen to it but don’t feel you should be able to slag her just because you don’t like her bubbly self. that is Carly. she has paid her dues and deserves props.
