Carly Rae Jepsen’s Calling Me... Maybe

I can officially check singing Call Me Maybe with Carly Rae Jepsen off my bucket list... (be jealous).
Carly Rae was at The Grove signing covers of her March issue of Seventeen magazine and I got the chance to talk to her about being the cover girl, her two Grammy noms, and her favorite songs on the radio... oh, and don’t forget, I also did a duet with her!
Carly is behind, what I consider to be, the song of the century, Call Me Maybe, and has been on a whirlwind adventure ever since Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and company released a choreographed/lip-synced version of the song in February 2012. Shortly thereafter, she became a household name with people of all ages catching on to her upbeat tune, including the Recording Academy.
The singer is nominated for two Grammy Awards in the coveted categories Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, for Call Me Maybe. Carly told me she did a kitchen dance when she found out about her nominations and that her family was on the phone immediately afterwards hearing the good news! Carly also told me about her plans on Grammy day -- from kissing her glam team members to eating granola and yogurt.
