Carly Rae Jepsen’s Loneliest Hour

Before Carly Rae Jepsen takes the stage each night on her So Nice Tour, she has a special guest greet the audience. Flanked by cotton candy clouds and twinkling stars, an animated moon with pursed lips and piercing blue eyes appears on the video screen.

“I know all of your secrets, so if you need to escape tonight, I offer you escapism,” it declares in Jepsen’s fluttery tone. “More than anything, I offer you a safe place to feel whatever it is you need to feel.”

As the moon went on to lay out expectations for the evening, the sold-out crowd at Jepsen’s recent Radio City Music Hall performance could barely contain itself. It all felt gloriously over-the-top, a little bit corny, and completely Carly.

“I don’t know if I would’ve had the confidence to do something that silly when I was younger,” Jepsen tells Vogue on a recent video call. “Now I have no problem storming into a production meeting and saying, ‘I wanna have a talking moon mascot narrate the tour and tell everybody that it’s okay to cry!’”

The 36-year-old pop artist is calling from her greenroom at the South Side Ballroom in Dallas, Texas, one of the many venues she’ll pass through over the next several months. Once a viral sensation thanks to “Call Me Maybe,” the ear-worm to end all ear-worms, Jepsen has carved out a career that not many—including herself—could have predicted a decade ago. The 2012 mega-hit became both a blessing and a curse for Jepsen, then a budding singer-songwriter best known for placing third on Canadian Idol. Still among the top 15 best-selling singles of all time, “Call Me Maybe” would be an anomaly in any artist’s career—much less that of a shy musical theater nerd from the suburbs of British Columbia.
