Carly Rae Jepsen Wins Big At Juno Awards, 2013

Let's take a break from our usual profession, trashing innocent rock stars for no better reason than they are too big for their britches (as Mamet memorably wrote about the reason Jesus Christ was crucified…) or no, let's not bother. Sure, Carly Rae Jepsen had the novelty single of 2012 with "Call Me Maybe" but the album The Kiss, was a not all that: a very ordinary modern pop move. And she had nothing much to offer on stage so why is she swiping awards at the Canadian version of the Grammys: the Juno Award? Wanna take a guess?

Better than the Weeknd, PS… who knew the Weeknd was Canadian? 

Otherwise, an opportunity to tip their heads to Canadian legend Leonard Cohen so why not do it?
