Carly Rae Jepsen Writes Saucy Song She Can’t Record
Carly Rae Jepsen has revealed she wrote a tune with songwriting collaborator Bonnie McKee but decided the lyrics were too explicit to include the tune on her third album.
She tells New York radio show Zach Sang & The Gang, “We got in the room and we were both in a really weird mood and we wrote a song about, basically being alone… Trying to find a delicate way to say this. It rhymes with contemplation.” When a show host offered up “masturbation”, red-faced Jepsen said, “Thank you! I couldn’t say it myself. Anyways, about five minutes into it I was like, ‘You know this isn’t making my album right?’ and we were like, ‘Well, whatever, let’s just go with it’.” The pop star adds, “‘We were kind of laughing a little bit later on because it got picked up actually. There’s a group in China that wants to make it their next single, and we were like, ‘Alright! I wonder if they know what it means?'”
