Carly Rae Jepsen “Really Likes You” in New Song

Usually when you have one ultra-successful song under your belt, it’s really hard to follow that up which is why the term “one hit wonder” was created (sorry, guys).

But, years after all the lip syncing videos, countless covers, and who know how many different performances of “Call Me Maybe,” Carly Rae Jepsen is back with another catchy song to add to her collection.

Her new song is titled “I Really Like You,” and even though it’s not as “let’s get up and dance and sing along until we can’t anymore” as “Call Me Maybe,” the song is simple and catchy and brings up images of pop songs from the 80s.

Don’t believe us, check out the song below.

As of now, there has been no word on whether Jepsen has a new album coming out anytime soon, but we’re pretty sure if she does, we’ll be hearing about it.

Also, it might be a good idea to keep an eye out for the official music video for the song which will feature a dancing Tom Hanks and that annoying dude that helped discover her, at least according to Instagram.

Carly Rae Jepsen to Make Broadway Debut

Call her, maybe?

Looks like Broadway did just that because it has been confirmed that Carly Rae Jepsen will be heading to the live theater stage. The pop star will be making her stage debut in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on February 4 for a 12-week run. She will be replacing Tony-nominated Laura Osnes who is leaving the production after a yearlong run.

“Broadway has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I look forward to working with this incredibly talented cast to tell this classic tale,” said Jepsen, who began performing in musical theater while in high school.

This isn’t the first time the Canadian singer has done something princess-related. Last year, she was given the opportunity to cover the iconic Little Mermaid song, “Part of Your World” as part of the diamond edition release of the film on DVD.

Also making their official debut on Broadway in the revamped cast of the famous musical is The Nanny herself, Fran Drescher who will be taking over the role of Cinderella’s evil stepmother, previously played by Harriet Harris.

As for Jepsen, things have been quiet on her music front since the “Call Me Maybe” hype. She followed up the hit song with a single titled “This Kiss,” but it didn’t make quite the impression that breakthrough track did. Word has it that a new album should be coming out sometime in 2014.

Carly Rae Jepsen Cancels Boy Scouts’ Jamboree Apperance

Yesterday, Train made it know that they have no desire to be part of the Boy Scouts of america Jamboree as long as they are against having gay scouts. now fellow jamboree performer  Carly Rae Jepsen has also spoken out it and has decided that she would follow in suite and cancel her performance as long as the boy scouts believe that gay scouts shouldn’t be allowed.

The “Call Me Maybe” star tweeted the following on the subject matter:

“As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer. I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level and stay informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.”

Looks like the Change.org petition did what it wanted to; two of the main performers for the Jamboree have pulled out months before the summer concert was set to take place. In recent years, the organization has been taking a lot of heat over their ban on openly gay members. Back in January, there was talk about lifting the discriminatory ban, but the vote was scheduled to go to vote in May.

Train Refuses to Play Boy Scouts’ Jamboree

Train

Train has made it known now that they are against the Boy Scouts of America. The band were scheduled to perform at this year’s jamboree which would be taking place in July with “Call Me Maybe” crooner, Carly Rae Jepsen, but the band are pulling out. According to Queerty, the band made a statement against the longstanding and recently troubling ban on scouts being from the LGBQT community.

A recent petition by Derek Nance, a gay Eagle Scout, on Change.org urged the band to make this decision after GLAAD signed on for the cause this past Friday. The band wrote the following on their blog, explaining the situation to fans:

“When we booked this show for the Boy Scouts of America, we were not aware of any policy barring openly gay people from participation within the organization. Train strongly opposes any kind of policy that questions the equality of any American citizen. We have always seen the BSA as a great and noble organization. We look forward to participating in the Jamboree this summer, as long as they make the right decision before then.”

Currently, the petition is waiting for Jepsen to make a statement about whether she would go ahead and do the Jamboree of if she, like Train, will pull out. In case you were one of the few who hasn’t seen the “Call Me, Maybe” video, it features a male couple kissing in it. Jepsen has also spoken out about how she would always support gay marriage.
