Jepsen finds inspiration everywhere

Carly Rae Jepsen played a gig in her hometown

Carly Rae Jepsen has confessed she makes song notes in some strange places as a result of her hectic schedule.

"If I had my iPhone with me I would play you this idea I had to put down in the airport bathroom just yesterday," the Call Me Maybe singer told the Abbotsford Times.

"I heard a woman use a word and it connected with a title and suddenly there I was quietly singing it in the bathroom."

This week, Carly Rae played a special gig in front of 500 fans - and her gran - in her hometown.

The Canadian singer performed her hits at the Clarke Foundation Theatre in Mission, British Columbia - where she last performed as lead in the musical Annie.

Carly Rae joked: "I am thinking of throwing in a little Tomorrow to the set. My grandmother is coming and she saw me then, too. But that wig is never coming back - never."

In the New Year, the 27-year-old will continue touring as support act for Justin Bieber and then headlining her own tour.

"We're going to Europe with Justin and then heading to Japan for a headlining show, which I am super excited about because I really loved it there," she added.
