Carly Rae Jepsen Opens 90210 Season 5
Before her hit single, “Call Me Maybe,” became ridiculously overplayed and an Internet meme – indirectly helping to spawn the Overly Attached Girlfriend meme – Carly Rae Jepsen was a humble girl from Mission, British Columbia – yeah Canada! – playing the occasional show in small venues. Her fame came from placing third in the fifth season of Canadian Idol, but she has since exploded almost out of nowhere. Her rise to fame outside of Canada happened so quickly, I wasn’t sure it was really happening. But now I can’t go a single day without seeing someone mentioning “Call Me Maybe” or Jepsen somewhere on the Internet. And now, Jepsen has landed a role on Season 5 of 90210.
According to TVLine, Jepsen will make her scripted television debut in the Season 5 premiere of 90210, airing Monday, Oct. 8th, where she will be playing herself and will perform a song from her next album. She’ll be headlining at Adrianna’s Las Vegas premiere, but will be interrupted by the news of Dixon’s car accident. I’m absolutely game for Jepsen’s little cameo, as long as she plays anything other than “Call Me Maybe.” The song is cute, no doubts there, but it suffers from being overplayed, as is the case with any song that ends up on Billboard’s Hot 100 list. Just because it’s a hit single does not mean it needs to be played on the radio 20 times a day.
I’ve heard more than a few people refer to Jepsen as a one-hit wonder. While I don’t think she’s the greatest artist out there, saying somebody is a one-hit wonder before their career is even over is a little harsh. Plus, Jepsen has been putting music out in Canada for years. Her career is just getting started, so let’s give her a chance to prove herself outside of the light shed by “Call Me Maybe.” Plus, she’s cute. Let’s not scare off all the cute girls, okay?
