Carly Rae Jepsen is broke and pawning stuff for cash

We’ll always remember Carly Rae Jepsen‘s worldwide hit, ‘Call Me Maybe’. It was actually on the radio when I was in the car the other day! We’ll never forget – and she’ll probably always get a few pennies per play in residuals. But that ain’t enough to keep the lights on, and apparently Carly is broke as shit now and having to pawn her stuff for cash.

Crazy Days and Nights recently revealed one of their biggest blind items, and it ain’t good:

This very recent one hit wonder was in a NYC pawn shop yesterday trying to get money for a bag she paid $25K for. When the pawn shop said they don’t loan money on bags because they could be fake, the foreign born singer begged them to at least give her a couple of thousand. They said no so she eventually gave them a piece of jewelry to get the money she needed.

I never really call BS on CDAN because they’re always pretty spot on and their stuff does come from actual reliable sources. Let’s not forget that homegirl hasn’t had a hit since that ‘Good Time’ song with Owl City, and that cost them $800,000 in plagiarism costs, so…

Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Good Time’ Song Plagiarism Cost Them $800,000

Owl City fucking sucks, man. The dude literally must’ve listened to Deathcab For Cutie/Postal Service until it’s all he could hear in his mind and then just went out and impersonated it for an entire record and yet NO ONE called him out for this. His entire artistry is based on plagiarism, so it’s no surprise that ‘Good Time’, that song that featured Carly Rae Jepsen and got stuck in everyone’s heads to the point where we wanted to jump out of our windows, was actually a copy of another song.

Songwriter Ally Burnett filed a lawsuit saying that ‘Good Time’ was a rip-off of her own song, ‘Ah, It’s a Love Song’, which was written way earlier. Turns out, a judge actually agreed with her and now ‘Good Time’s royalties company, BMI, has been ordered to pay $804,156 in compensation to Ally. Jackpot!

Give a listen to Ally’s song and then Owl City’s – do you think they sound the same? I sure hope so, because the entire chorus line is blatantly pulled from Ally’s song (which isn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be before listening):

Carly Rae Jepsen Is Your New Cinderella

Cinderella has been incredibly successful on Broadway, and who better to play the glass-shoed princess but… Carly Rae Jepsen? That’s right, she’s outgrown her Ariel phase and has moved on to the next fairy tale character. She’ll take on the lead role in the Rodgers & Hammerstein production starting in February. Exciting!

Carly is taking over the role from Laura Osnes for 12 weeks, which isn’t that long of a run, but ah well. She started her career doing musicals at her school growing up, so this should be somewhat familiar territory for her. Here’s what she had to say (tweet) about it:


What do you think – is it a good fit?
