Jepsen's music has been described as a mixture of TaylorSwift and {{Robyn}}: cute, sweet lyrics about love and breakups mixed with upbeat synth pop and dance tracks. "Call Me Maybe" has been described as quite literally [[http://gawker.com/5891935/have-you-heard-call-me-maybe-the-new-perfect-pop-song the perfect pop song]]. Jepsen went on tour with Justin Bieber in 2013 to promote her new album, ''Kiss.''

In February 2014, Carly Rae Jepsen made her acting debut as the title character in the Broadway version of ''Film/{{Cinderella}}'', and in March the next year released her comeback single "I Really Like You". Its music video quickly became a MemeticMutation for depicting Creator/TomHanks lip-syncing the song while going on his typical day. In August, her second album ''E-MO-TION'' was released to very positive reviews.

In the video, this is timed perfectly to the revelation that her future date is actually gay.

* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll: For a while, ''Series/CanadianIdol'' Season 5 winner Brian Melo had the best career of the singers that season, if only because his winner's single hit #11 on the Canadian Hot 100. A few of the winners such as Ryan Malcolm and Kalan Porter had number one hits on the old Canadian charts, but that chart used the outdated method of counting only single sales (for example, Music/EltonJohn's "Candle in the Wind" remake stayed in the top 20 for over three years!). Four years later, third-placer and then two-hit wonder Jepsen releases the single "Call Me Maybe," which not only became the show's first top 10 hit, but also reached number-one. But that was only just the beginning. Shortly after the song reached the top, Music/JustinBieber tweeted that he was a fan of the song and made a video of it [[SelenaGomez with]] [[AshleyTisdale his]] [[BigTimeRush friends]]. With millions of people hearing about Carly for the first time ever, her song proceeded to top over ten other national charts including the Hot 100 in the United States, and become a full-fledged [[MemeticMutation meme]], especially after a Barack Obama-inspired parody was released. "Call Me Maybe" remains the only song by a ''Canadian Idol'' contestant to be a major hit outside of Canada; likewise Jepsen is the only act from the show most non-Canadians are familiar with.

Nuking real-person troping and other crap that doesn't belong.
* BareYourMidriff: [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2160758/Call-Me-Maybe-singer-Carly-Rae-Jepsen-parades-legs-midriff-tiny-ensemble-MuchMusic-Awards-rehearsal.html From time to time.]] Although apparently she likes smart blouses and trouser suits (judging by ProductPlacement for Marks & Spencers, aka [[FanNickname Marks and Sparks]] on her social media sites, if this can be considered WordOfGod.

* FunSize: Carly Rae is rather short at 5'2". Especially prominent when she stands next to tall guys like [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/06/17/article-2160758-13A864FB000005DC-946_634x472.jpg Flo Rida]] and [[http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Adam+Young+Carly+Rae+Jepsen+2012+Arthur+Ashe+fdBJm9G1LOgl.jpg Adam Young]] (aka Music/OwlCity), both of whom are over 6 foot tall. * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "Alice in Wonderland" gets "you taste just like chocolate" past the radar. * HiddenDepths: She has roadgeek tendencies.

* HotterAndSexier: She of all people seems to be heading down this path. After the [[TastesLikeDiabetes saccharine sweetness]] of "Tug of War" and especially EarWorm "Call Me Maybe", she's released "Good Time" with Music/OwlCity; she displays BareYourMidriff and WhoWearsShortShorts in the video. She also dresses sexy in the video for "This Kiss". [[http://www.tmz.com/2012/07/25/carly-rae-jepsen-nude-naked-pictures-photos/ There's even a nude photo scandal!]] ** That said, she's almost ''30''.

* IntercourseWithYou: "Talk To Me" gets ''really'' blatant. -->"I can see what 'cha wanna do to me\\ You can feel it something's gonna break\\ Well I'm in if you're in\\ Let's make a big mistake" * LampshadedDoubleEntendre: "I Didn't Just Come Here to Dance" ("If you know what I mean... do you know what I mean?") off of the "Emotion" album

* TheMentor: Of all people, fellow Canadian pop star Music/JustinBieber. * MsFanservice: To an extent (see the "Good Time" video, for example). * OlderThanTheyLook: She's nearly ''30'' and [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/21/carly-rae-jepsen-age-style_n_1533302.html loves]] [[InvokedTrope invoking]] this. * OopNorth: She is SeriousBusiness there.

* TheRant: She was constantly ranting about... Leeds City Council on her Twitter feed, and then deleting the tweets within the same day. ([[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's not say what it was about, though]].)

* ShesGotLegs: Especially prominent in the coverart for ''Curiosity'' (and its first single, "Call Me Maybe") and the video for "Good Time"; she is famous for her thighs.

* ThreeMinutesOfWrithing: Done in the video for "Good Time", albeit ''far'' tamer than most.
