    Canadian popstar Carly Rae Jepsen is celebrating the 10th anniversary of her inescapable track Call Me Maybe, and she's shared a hilarious story from her time as a waitress.

    The track, which featured on her 2011 EP Curiosity, introduced the world to CRJ - and she's gone on to be a favourite of pop lovers everywhere.

    In the story, she writes that she overheard a table speaking about one of her earlier songs, Tug Of War, and their dislike of the track. However, rather than taking it to heart, Carly was excited that people were talking about her music.

    To thank them, she explains she "printed off their bill and signed my name confidently in bold letters on the back of the receipt. I said, ‘Thanks for letting me take care of you tonight! Also, I signed the back of your receipt since I hear you are all such big fans!'"

    The story is a reminder of the ways one song can change someone's life. Carly wrote, "The point is, don’t give up on your dreams, kids. Not three months later Call Me Maybe was released and let’s just say I hope that song really annoyed them.”

    Since the release of Call Me Maybe, Carly's released three albums - Emotion, Dedicated and Dedicated Side B, so it's fair to say she's thrived since the release of Call Me Maybe.
