Justin’s been tweeting up a storm about Carly, so it’s about time you get to know her!

The name Carly Rae Jepsen may not mean anything to right now, but it’s about to! Justin Bieber jumped to the defense of the 26-year-old Canadian songstress Feb. 22 after some of his fans started to rally against her — and with Justin by her side, you know it’s only a matter of time before she takes the world by storm. But who is Carly? HollywoodLife.com put together a list of the six things you should know about Justin’s protegé.

.
  • Carly was signed to Scooter Braun‘s record label, Schoolboy Records, on Feb. 14.
  • Her first EP, Curiosity, was released Feb. 14 and features the hit single “Call Me Maybe.”
  • The success of “Call Me Maybe” marked the first time a Canadian singer hit the top of the digital charts since Justin’s “Baby.”
  • Her song “Tug Of War” won Song of the Year at the 2010 Canadian Radio Music Awards.
  • Her career began when she placed third on the fifth season of Canadian Idol back in 2007.
.

Carly even tweeted her admiration for the Biebs on Feb. 21 when they worked together in the studio! “My first impression of @justinbieber : he is passionate, talented, charming and did I mention talented?” she wrote. “He writes hits like its easy. Wow.”

It’s official: We’re Team Carly!

I live in the UK so I only actually just heard Carly’s single ‘Call Me Maybe’ and I’m already hooked on it. I like Bieber and his songs but I wouldn’t say I’m a fan, whereas I know already that I’m gonna love Carly and all the rest of her songs. I searched her on Wikipedia and when I found she was 26/27 I couldn’t believe it, she looks so young for her age… Can’t wait to hear her next single, Much Love <3 xx

Carly Rae is so cute! I may be bias because I’m Canadian, but she’ll go far. She’s already done well in Canada, just a short while before she takes the US.

i dont think Justin likes her in that way, he loves her music!! These little girls need to grow up, cause Justin is almost 18, and i got a feeling that he is going to start speaking his mind more, —BlackwhitePlanet.C0Mit’s where for men and women looking for interracial’ship for a fabulous lifestyle。It’s a nice place for black white sing’les, to interact with each other…no bounds or extremes in front of true love.

Yeah, i read Justin Bieber’s tweets today.. You can tell, he was pissed that some of his beliebers disrespected Carly Rae jepsen.. He even said DAMN, which is unusual for him, especially on twitter!! But good for him, im glad he did it! These fans have got to understand that they need to respect Justins friends, family, girlfriend, etc.. I dont know why these fans would disrespect Carly Rae jepson, other than probably jealousy again, cause they think Justin has the hots for her, or just dont like the attention she is getting from him.. its called she is part of their team now, get over it little kids!! She is 26 years old, i dont think Justin likes her in that way, he loves her music!! These little girls need to grow up, cause Justin is almost 18, and i got a feeling that he is going to start speaking his mind more, since he will be an adult next week, and some of these beliebers might not like what they hear if they keep up this drama!!
