Carly Rae: Strange being papped

Carly Rae Jepsen admitted it's still strange being photographed

Carly Rae Jepsen has confessed it still "wigs" her out when she is papped at airports.

The Canadian singer is still getting used to being photographed after shooting to fame with her hit Call Me Maybe.

She said of being recognised: "That is a little bit strange. I'm not at the level of like, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. I've been very enclosed in my hotel rooms and very enclosed in the studio right now, so the times where I'm out there is for a show or at the airport.

"The airport paparazzi kind of wigs me out a little bit. TMZ I think caught me and they're like, 'Carly Rae Jepsen carries her own suitcase,' and I'm like, 'Is that not allowed? Who is supposed to carry it? I'm new to this'."

The 26-year-old admitted she feels pressure to put out good music.

She explained: "I just feel a pressure to put out music that I feel really proud of and that feels like me, and there's definitely a limited amount of time to get that done well and get that done right. But I think it's close.

"It's been sort of a fun project to be writing on the plane and in the hotel room at night."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
