Females have taken over the Best Pop Solo Performance category for the 2013 Grammy Awards! Adele, Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Rihanna have all been praised by the Recording Academy for outstanding vocals and audibly arresting beats on their standout singles of 2012, but which of these ladies do you think deserves the golden gramophone?
Carly Rae Jepsen
Carly Rae Jepsen scored arguably the definitive hit of 2012 with 'Call Me Maybe,' but she's been having a tough time driving subsequent singles up the charts -- so maybe what her voice needs is a change of setting, in the form of a duet with rising Danish pop sensations A Friend in London.
The red carpet is the place for fashion statements, but sometimes, celebrities stretch their luck and take things way too far with their ensembles.

Carly Rae Jepsen doesn't get why people think she is a lot younger than she is. The 'Call Me Maybe' cutie just turned 27, but people still assume she is in her early 20s. Perhaps it's the fact that she does dress a bit young for her age. Or maybe it's just good genes. Why complain if you get carded, so to speak? Accept the compliment that people think you look young, since it means you look good.
