The bright side is that her pitch was slightly better than fellow Canadian girl Justin Bieber and much better than Howard Stern sidekick Gary Dell’abate (a.k.a. Baba Booey). Continue reading “Funny Video: Carly Rae Jepsen Throws Worst Pitch Ever?”
To promote her new single, Bonnie McKee played a little game called “How many recognizable celebrity faces can I shove into one four minute video.” The answer? …A lot.
I spy Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Adam Lambert and Carly Rae Jepsen – all artists McKee, an accomplished songwriting machine (“Hold It Against Me,” “Dynamite,” California Gurls” etc.) has worked with in the past.
But what are Kathy Griffin, Jenny McCarthy, Kiss and Tommy Lee doing here? (Of course they’re all available! “American Girl” is half starpower, half highlights from an unaired season of The Surreal Life.)
San Francisco mash-up king DJ Earworm (Jordan Roseman) releases a master mix of all the radio-friendly songs of the year in December, and 2012’s is here, ripe with van Gogh-worthy tracks from Adele, One Direction, Ke$ha, Carly Rae Jepsen, Rihanna, PSY and more.
This one’s called “Shine Brighter” and it’s bound to get actual airplay, and a video complete with clips from every artist on Earworm’s YouTube channel shortly.

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. Continue reading “Carly Rae Jepsen Is 26 Years Old?!”
