Carly Rae Jepsen Talks One Direction Success

Carly Rae Jepsen thinks it’s “rad to watch” One Direction become so successful in the US and Canada.

The Call Me Maybe singer was asked why she thinks the boyband have been such a big hit overseas and she thinks it’s because they have great personalities as well as their catchy songs.

“Obviously great music, talented guys,” says Jepsen, who has enjoyed major worldwide success herself in 2012.

“But it’s hard to know just what’s the one combination of things that sort of clicks and takes off.

“I think for those boys it seems to be a lot about the music and their personalities.

“They seem to be really endearing to the public,” she continued to tell UK radio station Capital FM. “It’s rad to watch.”

Carly recently said she owes Justin Bieber forever because he’s helped her enjoy so much success in her career.

Jepsen also admitted that she loves not looking her real age.

When asked if it bothers her that people think she’s a lot younger than she is, the 27-year-old said: “I think it’s the opposite. It’s extremely flattering.

“What woman doesn’t want to hear that she looks younger?”
