Carly Rae Jepsen Is 26 Years Old?!

I really have nothing to say beyond the headline. Carly Rae Jepsen is my age exactly and is either a genius marketer who took songwriting notes from Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift’s people, or a woman with a regressing mental age.

She’s Canadian (a bonus, in my mind) with an EP, Tug of War, from 2008 in her vault. It was of course the recent hit “Call Me Maybe,” which she co-wrote, that propelled her into insane levels of success.

I was really surprised to find that she wasn’t around 19 years old, is anyone else? Or am I just being a stiff nitpicking codger for the millionth time? The song seems a little immature but that doesn’t stop it from never ever leaving your head. It’s like that black goo in Prometheus. 

Call Me Maybe’s popularity was ignited by none other than Justin Bieber and his fans, after Carlos Pena of Big Time Rush posted a video of Justin, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and others dancing and lip-syncing to it.

Then came the Katy Perry lip-sync video, Fun.’s acoustic cover, the Obama dub, Jimmy Fallon with Jepsen and The Roots and the continuation of the song’s seeming inability to get knocked off the charts.
Maybe I’m just jealous of ALL THE MONEY.
