The track’s popularity has continued to rise thanks to YouTube.com covers by superfans Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, James Franco, and Justin Bieber's girlfriend Selena Gomez, but the blushing 26 year old confesses it was the compliment from her former crush John Mayer that she cherishes the most.

She tells People magazine: “John Mayer sent a note in a little wooden box that said, ‘Embrace and enjoy your first hit. There’s more to come.’ I was acting like a 12-year-old. He’s a great songwriter - and not bad to look at!”       

The Canadian singer has also revealed that she’s been busy writing a song with party-rockers LMFAO.

The star has admitted that she has been busy making plans for the future collaboration and that the showbiz bunch are currently working on the new track, that she’s ‘extremely excited’ about.

“It’s been a cool day today,” Carly Rae Jepsen told Billboard. “I ran into RedFoo from LMFAO at the airport, and we’ve been writing a song together today. Over the phone.”

“Pretty much every day, there’s a moment where I’m having to pinch myself and think, ‘When did this happen to my life?’”

It appears One Direction heartthrob Niall Horan has a celebrity crush.

The shy Irish boy-band star has long been rumored to have taken a shining to X Factor judge Demi Lovato, although it wasn’t set in stone until the boys’ appearance on Canadian entertainment show Etalk this week.

Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles were invited to play Rapid Fire Romance, in which the group had to check out photos of female celebrities and write which of their band-mates would be best suited to them romantically.

A host of gorgeous female stars - including Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Rihanna - all came and went without much fuss, but then the boys began giggling when Demi Lovato's photograph was held up. After the singers had written on their board, Louis yelled “hang on, hang on”, before adding a percentage sign to the name. After flipping the sign, it read “Niall. 100 per cent”.

Cheeky Harry Styles seemed intent on embarrassing his band-mate even further, laughing: “Niall dreams dirty things!”.

The group have gotten to know the American singer pretty well since their rise to fame, and earlier this year, Demi admitted she thinks Niall is “adorable”.
