Carly Rae Jepsen Not Sick of "Call Me Maybe"...Yet 

Kevin Mazur/WireImage via ABCCarly Rae Jepsen's hit "Call Me Maybe" has been #1 for eight weeks and has inspired countless video covers, spoofs and parodies.  By this time, though, you might think that the Canadian singer would be sick of the song that made her famous, considering the number of times she's had to sing the thing over the past year.  But Carly told ABC's Nightline recently that it hasn't gotten old for her.

"Not yet at least," says Carly Rae.  "I mean, I don't know if it would.  I'm really enjoying myself.  It's kinda of been a song that's taken me on this crazy adventure, so it's totally special to me."

Carly thinks that one reason why "Call Me Maybe" is so popular is because the song came so easily for her and her co-writers.  "Someone once told me that the good songs kinda write themselves and you don't have anything to do with it," she explains.  "And I think that's how we feel about this one.  It was just sort of like we were there, but it kinda just happened!"

Carly adds, "It was one of those really joyful processes when you don't think, 'Is this gonna work?  Is this gonna be good? Are people gonna like it?' We just did what we wanted to do."

Carly Rae will release her debut album, Kiss, on September 18.  She'll will promote the new disc with a slew of TV appearances, including America's Got Talent on August 22, NBC's Today show on August 23, Arthur Ashe Kids Day at the U.S. Open on CBS on August 26, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on August 28 and Conan on August 29.
