Carly Rae Jepsen: VMA nod is mind-blowing

Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen "has to pinch herself" every time she thinks of her VMA nod.

The 26-year-old pop star has been nominated in the Best New Artist category at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.

Although she's reached worldwide success since her hit Call Me Maybe stormed the airwaves, Carly still can't believe she's reached her long held dreams.

"I have to pinch myself. I mean, a year ago I was touring Canada in a soccer mom van, and all of the sudden, my life's just taken off in a completely different direction," she told MTV News.

"Moments like that just let it really sink in. It's crazy."

Fellow musicians up for the Moonman prize in the Best New Artist category include Frank Ocean, One Direction, The Wanted and Fun featuring Janelle Monae.

Carly is honoured to be amongst this class of nominees.

"Even to be listed among those names is honestly just crazy to me. I'm a big fan of all of them," Carly gushed.

The MTV Video Music Awards will air on Thursday.

You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
