You know the story of Carly Rae Jepson? She's from here, about 20 minutes away from me. She was selected by one of the radio stations as the new local song for a month and was just an absolute hit. We've had 3 or 4 songs by her now.
She wasn't able to break into the American market, but one day the Beibs was up in Canada listening to the radio, heard her, found out she wasn't signed to an American label yet, so he signed her to his, tweeted about her, and his Beleibers did the rest.
Speaking of the Beibs... did you hear he's been accused of assaulting a photographer?
