On her fast rising success:
“Pretty much every day, there’s a moment where I have to pinch myself and think, ‘When did this happen to my life?’”

For being an artist in the music industry:
“What I really love about [it] is that, despite all this craziness the creative process remains the same. And that same exciting feeling that I had before anybody knew me, when I was just beginning to work on ‘Call Me Maybe,’ is the same feeling I had today with RedFoo from LMFAO. You can sense the people who really have it are about writing that right word or that right melody to make it lift and make you feel that perfect emotion.”

On her thoughts on Canadian Idol:
"It's the same mentality I had on 'Canadian Idol'. I placed third on that show, and everyone was like, 'are you upset that you didn't win?' I was like, 'No, I'm so stoked that I came in third!' It's farther than I thought I would go."

Miss Jepsen's Manager Scooter Braun talks about her willingness to succeed:
"I sat down Carly in my backyard and said, ‘This is not going to be fun. You’re going to be so tired.’ And she looked at me and said, ‘Scooter, I don’t care how hard I have to work. I’m going to do it. This is what I’ve wanted my entire life."
