Carly Rae Jepsen Throws Shade At Taylor Swift?!

| Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsLove LineTaylor SwiftCarly Rae Jepsen


Ruh roh!

Is someone slyly dissing a certain crimson-lipped beauty?!

The girl who has allll our numbers aka Carly Rae Jepsen wants people to know that she does NOT write songs about her ex-lovers…

Unlike a certain Taylor Swift!

During a recent interview, CRJ was asked if she had ever pulled a Swifty and penned a tune inspired by a former relationship.

Carly responded:

"No. In a relationship, it's very rarely just one person's fault. For me, it's never like 'You a**hole!' it's more like, 'When did we change sides?"

Very mature Mz. Jepsen!

And maybe Taylor will one day stop using her dysfunctional love stories as song material and begin expanding her repertoire…

Although who doesn't love guessing about the male subjects of her angsty tracks?!

    Carly who? Sounds like a bit of jealousy to me! Maybe Carly should concentrate on trying to get a 2nd hit single.

    perez, you suck taylor swift's dick so hard, don't act like you hate her songs.
    and this quote could not be interpreted as anything towards tswift and she doesn't even mention anything about her so

    I could be wrong.. But I thought when I saw Carly Rae Jepsen perform at Sound of Music she introduced a song & then explained that it was about a previous relationship, I don't remember which song it was though :S

    you are literally so far up her ass perez that it makes me /sick/ literally can you find a DIFFERENT FUCKING HOBBY LIKE NO ONE ASKS FOR YOUR OPINION!!!
    "And maybe Taylor will one day stop using her dysfunctional love stories as song material and begin expanding her repertoire…"
    AND MAYBE YOU WILL STOP USING YOUR OPINIONS THAT NO ONE CARES ABOUT ON SOME STUPID FUCKING GOSSIP SITE AND BEGIN EXPANDING YOUR REPERTOIRE……………??????????????? maybe use your voice to do something good. it's not cute. it's never been cute.

    Cheap shot, Perez. Cheap shot. "And maybe Taylor will one day stop using her dysfunctional love stories as song material and begin expanding her repertoire…"

    "And maybe Taylor will one day stop using her dysfunctional love stories as song material and begin expanding her repertoire…"


    Since when was it not okay for a person to write about whatever the fuck they wanted to write about?! Obviously Taylor Swift isn't doing too bad because she is breaking records. If Carly was smart she would take a leaf out of her book. Listening to Carly makes me want to stab something sharp into my ear, I would take Taylor over her any day.
    The only reason she is famous is because of Justin Bieber.
    Taylor Swift made it for herself.

    Swift is 22, and those songs were written a couple of years ago. Carly Rae Jepsen is 27 years old, so when it comes to relationships at that age, the difference is like a century.

  11. 11

    I'm so confused with you Perez. Back when WANEGBT you were acting like Taylor's BFF, kissing her ass and she would RT all your compliments about RED. Now you dislike her? How old are you again and when will you realise highschool cattyness is not for 30 year old men?

  12. 12

    can we also foccus on the fact Carly is 27 and wrote Call Me Maybe

  13. NE1 says – reply to this


    love it. doesn't mean she can't write songs about relationships, it just means she's not gonna use her own experiences. taylor is kind of running out of room to do this, not that the last song wasn't as catchy as ever.

  14. 14

    Um.. do you know that Carly Jae is a 27 y/o WOMAN? And Taylor is a 22 y/o girl who still acts like she's 17? Obviously there is a HUGE difference between both of them. But now, one of them just jumped into the limelight and the other one is a proven star in her own right. Totally different styles, totally different voices. No use in comparing.

  15. Connor says – reply to this


    Carly is right on the money. Taylor Swift songs are all about "I'm gonna getchu for breaking my heart! I'm gonna go platinum to get over this relationship and broadcast my resentment to the whole world"….very immature and ultimately mean.

  16. KEKE says – reply to this


    Maybe Carly is mad because Canadians pay more retail price then Americans.
    Wanna know why!!! CHECK OUT THE BLOG

  17. she29 says – reply to this


    Taylor Swift writes about real emotions and topics like bullying, Eating Disorders, and being comfortable with who you are as a person and so far Carly Rae only writes about bubblegum crush's. Also keep in mind that Taylor is 22 and Carly is 27 so I dont know why she thinks its okay to disrespect a fellow musician, especially a fellow songwriter that has accomplished so much when Carly has only written one hit song that is more suited to a 16 year old.

  18. Alison says – reply to this


    Taylor Swift has always been the song writer who writes about her own life experiences and that includes her former relationships. There is nothing wrong with that. This is why her songs relate so well to her fan's and their situations. I think that Carly Rae Jepsen is wrong in saying that it is "rare" for it to be one person's fault completely. It is not uncommon.

  19. Whatever says – reply to this


    2 of Taylor swift's Grammy's are for a song called mean which doesnt have anything to do with relationships and if you listen to her albums, not all of the songs are about love!!! Perez maybe you should expand your repertoire and stop throwing your suppossed friends under the bus every chance you get!!!! Carly rae should maybe learn that just because you have one song thats doing well, doesnt give you the right to disrespect those that have been here longer than you

  20. RainbowBrite says – reply to this


    I can't get over what a hypocrite you can be sometimes Perez. First of all stop trying to start drama between people. I don't see this as Carly throwing shade, I see it as a personal preference and opinion.

    "And maybe Taylor will one day stop using her dysfunctional love stories as song material and begin expanding her repertoire…"

    First of all every single musician on the face of this earth has written about the ups and downs of love. I don't get why people pick on her for her breakup songs. All the greats have done it and she can't help it if her personal life is under a magnifying glass so everyone is trying to guess who what songs is about. It's a way to deal. Secondly is I thought you LIKED Taylor swift. You sure switch sides a lot. Maybe you should start writing more meaningful content on your blogs.

  21. dodgyend says – reply to this


    Carly- you are a fucking 1-hit wonder. Talking shit about successful fellow artists is not a good look.

    Perez- you are such a bastard. I can´t believe you were all hurt 1 year when Taylor did not invite you to her birthday party. Really? She should fucking ignore you more than she does. lmao

  22. Jaela says – reply to this


    Well Carly would be one of the few out there who don't. What is the point of writing music if it doesn't contain some sort of angst?

  23. 23

    How is this "throwing shade" at anyone? I'm actually shocked at how many people are mad at Carly for saying that. She was asked straight out if she does what Taylor does…she said her opinion about why relationships end (one I agree with generally)…so what's wrong with that? Just because she doesn't agree with Taylor's stance on relationships doesn't mean she's insulting her.

  24. gallerygirl2345 says – reply to this


    Taylor Swifts music is pure, stinking, garbage. I put more thought into putting on my socks, than she does into writing her music. She is the WHINIEST celebrity, who thinks she knows about life because she's dated everyone in Hollywood. I don't blame her fans, I just think there are certain people who too easily fall for this trash, and they are usually tweens and teens who think finding a guy is the most important thing in the world. Her music is confused, over produced, and vapid. In my opinion, she abuses her celebrity status by bashing ex-boyfriends, which is so smarmy. I've never liked girls who are unable to maintain amicable relationships with ex's. Taylor Swift has made a career out of writing songs that make her look like the victim, when in reality, she cycles through men faster than anyone else in Hollywood. What guy wants to take a chance on a girl who is guaranteed to write a crappy, hurtful, song about him when they break up and share his personal business all over the f*cking world? Who is really the victim in Taylor Swift's music? Carley Rae Jepson, though also a crappy musician, at least respects the people who come into her life by not telling the world their business. Taylor Swift, mature people are ready for you to go away. Now. Please.

  25. Vinicius Fonseca says – reply to this


    Mean, Never Grow Up, Better Than Revenge, Innocent, Long Live, I'm Only Me When I'm With You, Fifteen, Breathe, The Best Day, Change, 22, The Lucky One, The Outside, Tied Together With A Smile, Mary's Song. Just a list with Taylor songs that aren't based on any of her relationships. How many songs were there in CRJ's album again?

  26. enaek says – reply to this


    Carly didn't once say anything bad about Taylor in that. All you people commenting about her being jealous and saying she's a one hit wonder are complete idiots. Carly didn't just "appear" out of thin air, she's been a musician for years at least up here in Canada she has! She's been on Canadian Idol and has collaborated and played with many other Canadian musicians. She had a hit song, just like Taylor did when she got her big break, just like any other artist/band for that matter! She was just stating her outlook on relationships, it had nothing to do with taylor swift, it's only because the stupid reporter said "pulling a swifty" in the question pretty much. Can't the girl just have a fucking opinion? She's 27 years old, of course she's going to look at relationships a bit more maturely than Taylor Swift! They've both gone through different things in their lives therefore have different outlooks on it… try not to get your panties in a twist next time ok guys? Also this is PEREZHILTON.com therefore the guy can write what ever the HELL HE WANTS! It's his site! Not entertainment tonight or access hollywoods website, so if you want less bias articles to read go there.

  27. 27

    Right instead Carly chooses to steal her songs from Ukranian Club Singers like she did with Call Me Maybe. I'm no huge TW fan but Jepson is a flash in the pan if ever I saw one.

  28. 28

    Meant to type TS not TW sorry. Ultimately both girls oughta save their money they be known as the "Whos?" in 10 years. My 9 year old has no clue who Avril Levine is & so just sayin these chickies should enjoy the spotlight while it lasts & stop dising one another.

  29. 29

    well Miss one hit wonder who cant sell albums needs to crawl back into obscurity. Its very sad that she's doomed to singing that ONE HIT for the rest of her life! Thats said, Swift is a childish boring annoying little turd who needs to shut the fuck up about boys like she's 14 or something. Just push both of em off a cliff..

    Re: gallerygirl2345
    Male artists have done girl-bashing anthems for ages….none of the males who listen to these songs give a shit. God forbid a woman writes honestly about her personal life- other women will have a meltdown. lmao@this whole mentality.

  31. dodgyend says – reply to this


    Talent-wise Taylor shits all over Carly. She is a critically acclaimed monster-selling powerhouse while Carly is and stays a 1-hit wonder.

  32. Arrora says – reply to this


    Taylor Swift is young, talented, and her songs are popular and heart felt because she writes about past relationships. Maybe Carly Rae could take a few pointers considering her song is just as annoying as the Friday song, she's a crappy one hit wonder and I doubt she"ll have anywhere near the success of Taylor Swift, she should keep it shut, she's just jealous!! Love little Swifty!!

  33. Leslie says – reply to this


    This nobody girl needs to stand in the jealousy line behind Carrie Underwood when it comes to Taylor Swift.

  34. Jenna says – reply to this


    Cary Rae Jepsen will never be on the level of Taylor Swift. She should curtsy to the reigning queen of country-pop and realize she could learn a lot from Taylor. After all, Taylors love songs have catapulted her into super stardom.

  35. 35

    They are both Talentless….Carly Rae is nothing special, I've heard so many better performers than her. Taylor is not a good singer…she writes her own music, big fucking deal…so do half the other artist on the music scene. So over these Overrated, Talentless people.

  36. 36

    Re: Jenna – Carrie is the Queen of Country/Pop sorry darling. Taylor sounds like a dying rat.

  37. EK says – reply to this


    I totally agree with what Carly's saying. I'm not a fan of Swift… I think it's immature of her to go around pointing the figure at every single guy who has "broken her heart". What kind of a person could have a healthy relationship with her knowing that once it's over they are going to get a nasty song penned about them? And don't give me any of that "Who cares… it's Taylor Swift!" crap. A real relationship is about love. And also, Carly is not a one hit wonder; she had plenty of airplay in Canada before "Call Me Maybe" even existed.

  38. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: dodgyend – Yeah, except she didn't talk 'shit', but answered a question honestly with her own personal point of view. No shade thrown here. Just contrast, with the interviewer trying to stir some controversy indirectly. Comprehension matters.

  39. 39

    Yeah, that's real unclassy of Taylor. She should have just released songs she didn't write and then release a pathetic sex tape for attention. Go away Carly.

  40. Stephaboo says – reply to this


    Once again, you add a very misleading title to this story when she didn't even mention Taylor Swift in her comment at all!
    I know you have lost soo many viewers on your website and people don't really give a shit about you , but please, stick to writing the truth and don't over indulge

  41. gallerygirl2345 says – reply to this


    Re: dodgyend – Yea people write music about all sorts of stuff, but find me 1 male artist as famous as Taylor Swift whose love life can be tracked through album releases. Besides, the content of the song matters. It's not that she's singing about losing love, its the fact that she actually says nasty things about people in her music, while masking it with a bubble-gum pop tune. And stop making this a male/female issues. Just because men are guilty of something, doesn't mean that women can't be guilty of the same thing. And besides, I am not talking about a man. This is about Taylor Swift being untalented, and a witch who uses her celebrity to 'get back' at her ex's instead of being an adult and letting bygones be bygones when things are over.

  42. 42

    I have not liked Taylor since she had "Mean" and "Better Than Revenge" on the same album, complete trash. I loved Taylor when her first album came out, but have lost a lot of respect for her.

  43. Silla says – reply to this


    Her dysfunctional love stories have gotten her 6 Grammy's so I don't think your stupid opinions really matter.

  44. maleekmonroe says – reply to this


    its absolutely true. Taylor swift is a star fucker, who has to be nuts. Since she is dating a new celebrity every 2 months. Eventually she will have gone trough the male celebrity list and have to start on the ladies, cant wait for the angry lesbian tracks ;)

  45. agbmomma says – reply to this


    I'm sorry…but most songs are written based on emotion….many times a broken heart. Taylor Swift is one artist in about a million that have all written songs about their relationships. I don't get why everyone always jumps on her for doing this, when EVERY artist does the same thing?

  46. EK says – reply to this


    Re: agbmomma – It's because it's pretty much EVERY single song. And except for a very select few, the boyfriend is ALWAYS the offender.

  47. Phds says – reply to this


    LOL it's so funny reading the comment section.
    First, when Perez praises Taylor Swift for her songs people just comment "she only writes about relationships, she should start writing about something else. She's so bring and predictable."
    And now that Perez calls Taylor on her own BS everybody is like "Taylor doesn't only write about relationships, she is so much more than this."
    You people should form an opinion instead of just disagreeing with everything he says. It's just becoming pathetic.

  48. cari says – reply to this


    She's written other songs??? She's a one hit wonder. Like, I 'wonder' why.

  49. 49

    Re: AshleyDuh – hey stupid Ashley. Do you even know what Mean is about? I didn't think so.

  50. Mw says – reply to this


    Taylor has plenty of songs where she admits she's wrong and was partofthe reason for the breakup. People need to stop thinking that know every last thing about celebrities based on singles their record company forces them to release. Do a little research before blasting unfounded opinions, people. And how is it that people constantly post about how stupid Perez is and how he should quit gossiping, yet they are clearly on his website and reading it in order to be posting comments in the first place? It's all a little hypocritical. The unnecessary hatred circulating on the Internet is unreal.

    Re: LilNikki – Wow Really?! Did you hear the Ukraine song? It's nothing alike!!!

  53. kuonster says – reply to this


    Cmon guys Carly isn't bitching anyone or being jealous. She just stated her opinion on break-ups in general. It's not like shes saying Taylor is wrong for writing songs that trash her exes, and condemning her for it. She's not saying 'Taylor shouldn't do this!' She's just saying 'I do things differently because this is what I believe. You know, it's like believing in a religion doesn't make one a determined murderer of all other religious existence. -.-

  54. OhPlease says – reply to this


    That wasn't a diss. It was a very thoughtful and mature response to the question.

  55. 55

    Re: light2you – Mean is about bullying, and she bullies another female a few songs after it on her album. Exactly what I said in my other comment, but I guess you need things spelled out for you. Hypocrite, that's what I was saying…incase you still don't get it.

  56. Kendra says – reply to this


    Maybe she sounds mature about it because she is 27 years old.
    Not only does she dress like she is 16 in her video her lyrics reflect that as well.

    i love taylor swift and i love harry but i hate haylor

  58. 58

    Whatever, CRJ. She can say whatever she wants, but maybe she should avoid practically quoting a TS lyric while she does it. Smacks of hypocrisy.

  59. Valerie says – reply to this


    Who cares? It's their life? Sure they made a few songs, but how does that make them any different? I think how the world made celebrities from actors, singers, and writers is idiotic. Where are the days when someone was famous for making a difference? Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin…
    People who save lives everyday don't get a second glance but people who have a good voice get a million "fans"?
