Carly Rae Jepsen – “Boy Problems” Video
Here’s a true story: last summer, around the time that Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION was released, I went to a “ladies night” party at a friend’s house. We painted our nails, ate pizza, and drank about a bottle of wine apiece. It was a very fun, very stereotypical experience; I felt like a trash can the next day and didn’t remember half of the conversations I had. One thing that I didn’t forget, however, was the point in the night when a friend put on “Boy Problems” and started dancing to it moments after relaying a story about the last shithead guy she “dated.” This is a song about moaning to your friends about exes and shitty lovers and having them tell you to get the fuck over it and start having fun again. That’s exactly what my friend did, and that’s what Jepsen does in this new Petra Collins-directed video. Tavi Gevinson makes a cameo; watch below via Rookie and read our Jepsen cover story here.
E•MO•TION is out now on School Boy/Interscope.
