Loved her since Canadian Idol, got to see her open for Marianas Trench a few years back too. Call Me Maybe is fantastic and the music video is wonderful, her new EP is solid, and she's finally blowing up (deservedly so).

And she follows me on Twitter. /sweetbrag

Kinda funny how in 4 days her Twitter follower count exploded from like 20-something thousand to just under 100k. The power of being scooped up by Bieber and his manager.

Everything about this song is so cheesy, and not cheesy like guilty pleasure cheesy, but annoying cheesy. Looked this girl up and I am so shocked she is 26 and not 16. This makes me dislike the song even more.

She's too pretty for this to really be the first time I've heard of her.

Josh can really write some good songs, but sometimes I really do think that us Canadians have the worst fucking tastes in music. EVERYTHING is double platinum here. My grandma could release a cooking mix-tape and all the kids here would eat that shit up.

Woh now! There are some great alternative scenes, but unfortunately too many people base their music tastes on whatever shit is pushed on MuchMusic or the mainstream radio stations. Gives us all a bad name unfortunately...

Normally I like pop, but I hate this song. It's just... She's 26, can't she stop writing Taylor Swift-Esque songs?

I mean props to her success but this sounds like something from a 16 year old, not 26. And we really do not need more 16 year old songs.

That being said, please tell me she hasn't written any songs about getting really drunk and partying.
