TWENTY-SEVEN!!!! A little dramatic, but that’s how old Carly Rae Jepsen is. Now, when we first found out that the singer was that age, we were pretty shocked considering that she looks extremely younger than what she actually is. Carly who is covering Cosmopolitan, explained that she never tries to look younger than she actually is – adding that she feels she does look like a twenty-seven year old whenever she looks in the mirror but it’s flattering when people tell her otherwise.
Talking to Cosmopolitan, she says: “If people think I look younger, then that’s great; I’m stoked,” she said. “But I turned 27 in November, and when I look in the mirror, I see all the years attached to that face, and I’m content with me. I love being as classy and as elegant as possible in my apartment. But when I’m on stage, I can’t dance in 4 and a half-inch heels, so I’ll generally sport flats.”
She also spoke about having her own music played worldwide — not to forget reaching number one in over thirty countries with ‘Call Me Maybe’: “For me, the goal of music has never been ‘I need to be the biggest superstar in the world.’ It was ‘I want to spend my life doing this, and I want to make a career that I can live off of so I don’t have to tend bar and waitress to make this fly.’ I don’t want to be Cinderella for a night. I want to be Cinderella for life.”
