Carly Rae Jepsen Looks Chic In The August Issue Of ‘Elle Canada’: 6 Photos

Hear M.I.A.'s Crazy New Song "Swords"
She used real sword sounds to make the beat on "Swords."

Carly Rae Jepsen‘s pretty cover for Elle Canada was revealed a few weeks ago, and now the full photo shoot for the magazine’s August 2015 issue has arrived!

The starlet dons minimal-yet-chic looks (including leather jackets, high-waisted trousers and fedoras) for the Owen Bruce-photographed editorial spread, with her jet-black bob giving her more of a rocker edge.

Inside the magazine, the artist reveals she was hesitant to release the “I Really Like You” single at first: “I want to push past what traditional pop can be; it can be hooky, but I was trying to be really honest about how I feel and bare my soul a little.”

She is also more confident now, telling Elle Canada: “When I first moved [to L.A.], I still felt like a little girl, even though I was 26. I was just very grateful for everything and scared to say anything. There were so many things that I wouldn’t be vocal about. This time, I’m a little bit less afraid and more in control.”

Carly’s E·MO·TION will be available on August 21 via Schoolboy Records/Interscope and September 25 in the UK. It features “Your Type,” “Run Away With Me” (the second single), “All That”and the ’80s-inspired title track.
