Carly Rae Jepsen on Tom Hanks and her new hairstyle


Carly Rae Jepsen came to London to perform some hits at Wembley Stadium for the annual Capital FM Summertime Ball. When she came to the press room, everyone naturally wanted to know more about her edgy new hairstyle and how she managed to bag Tom Hanks for her music video to I Really Like You. Here’s what she said:

On her new hairdo

“It’s the closest thing I’ll ever get to Joan Jett. For my single, I kinda had a vision in mind.”

On Tom Hanks being in her new video

“(It’s) pretty surreal to be honest. I think even the day of the shoot, on the flight over,  I was thinking something horrific was going to happen, there was no way it was actually going to happen, like maybe the flight would crash. My assistant didn’t like that idea, she was like ‘stop talking about things like that’ on a happy day.”

What did you make of the Bieber roast?

“I thought he handled himself really well. It would have been very hard.”

How to you feel about turning 30?

“I can’t wait. My friends say the highlights of their lives were in their thirties so, if that’s true, I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next”.
