Carly Rae Jepsen is Seventeen‘s latest cover girl, and for good reason. As revealed in the magazine’s March 2013 issue, the Canadian pop star learned how to enjoy the smash success of “Call Me Maybe” and sophomore album Kiss by answering the question WWJD? As in, what would Justin Bieber do?

“I love that he works hard and has fun,” she said. “I was in Paris promoting my new album, Kiss, for three days with no time off. So I went out at four in the morning to go explore the entire city. I try to make moments happen that feel very special and memorable because that’s exactly how Justin does it.” Jepsen could see even more success in about a week, as “Call Me Maybe” is up for a few Grammys including Best Pop Solo Performance and, more importantly, Song of the Year.
