Justin Bieber Impressed Protege with Writing Skills
Justin Bieber surprised Carly Rae Jepsen with his songwriting abilities.
The "Baby" hitmaker has championed the Canadian singer/songwriter, even appearing in the music video for her song "Call Me Maybe," and while Carly was a fan of Justin's music, she had no idea what a prolific songwriter her is.
"[Justin's" extremely talented -- and, I mean, obviously that's pretty well-known -- but in ways that I didn't realise. I knew that he sang, I knew that he was sort of infectious in his personality, I knew that he danced, but I didn't know how strong of a songwriter he was, and my first introduction to him was actually in his studio and he played me a couple songs he had written, and I was really impressed and I was so glad, because I really, really liked him," she said, speaking in an MTV Twitter chat with fans.
Carrly also admires Taylor Swift and would love to work with her:
"I think I'm open to collaborating with anybody. I have, like, a dream list of people that I want to collaborate with. John Mayer is on that list and Taylor Swift, actually. I think she's an amazing songwriter. I would imagine that would be a cool combination."
