Carly Rae Jepsen thinks it would be "a hoot" to watch Leonard Cohen perform her track Call Me Maybe.

The stomping pop anthem has shot Carly to fame around the world.

She is a huge fan of singer-songwriter Leonard, who is known for his moving lyrics which are usually laden with meaning. Carly insists that shouldn't stop him covering her track.

"I suspect it's not totally his genre, but it would be a hoot to watch him perform it! Although, to be honest, I don't know if I really want to see Leonard Cohen do anything but Famous Blue Raincoat on repeat," she told British newspaper The Guardian.

As well as talking about the people she looks up to, Carly spoke of those she doesn't like quite as much.

One of her teachers had a huge impact on the 26-year-old star.

"I remember having a maths teacher I was terrified of. He was grumpy all the time. On a day-to-day basis I try to surround myself with positive people," she said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

You're determined to get your agenda met, even if it means being loud and difficult. The prospect of creating friction does not bother you at all. You'd rather put people in an uncomfortable position than accept their inflexible position. By stirring up enough publicity, you could exert enough pressure to create some changes. A new set of rules will allow you to move forward with a brilliant plan. You'll get the full support of an influential executive who is tired of the old guard.More
