Carly Rae Jepsen Might Be Low On Cash Following Hit 'Call Me Maybe'
Canadian songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen temporarily ruled the charts and pop airwaves with her unfairly catchy single, "Call Me Maybe." Time hasn't been too kind to her after two years and no follow-ups.
Crazy Days and Nights has found evidence that suggests Jepsen may have gone broke in the time since "Call Me Maybe." The website doesn't have any confirmation on her financial situation or her profits from the hit single. It's lone evidence comes from an alleged stop at a pawn shop; Jepsen was apparently begging for a loan.
"This very recent one hit wonder was in a NYC pawn shop yesterday trying to get money for a bag she paid $25K for," Crazy Days and Nights says. "When the pawn shop said they don't loan money on bags because they could be fake, the foreign born singer begged them to at least give her a couple of thousand. They said no so she eventually gave them a piece of jewelry to get the money she needed."
Of course, Jepsen's recent tweets don't suggest any type of financial strife. Her most recent finds her enjoying luxury.

Jepsen had released an album and came third place on "Canadian Idol," but she truly broke into mainstream view when "Call Me Maybe" made waves in spring 2012. The song reached No. 1 on June 23. With its ninth week on top, "Call Me Maybe" became the longest No. 1 in 2012.
She scored another decent hit with "Good Time," a collaboration with Owl City. The single hit No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100, but none of her consequent singles had the same impact.
Jepsen has reportedly been working on her third studio album. She's also recently starred in Broadway production of "Cinderella."
