Carly Rae Jepsen is says she's a "hippie at heart".

The 'Call Me Maybe' hitmaker favours a laid back style of dressing and likes to mix up her look with both vintage and designer clothes.

She said: "I'm a little bit of a hippie at heart so I always wear things that are comfortable and flowing. I also love pop music and I'm attracted to bright colours. A bit of vintage and a bit of designer mixed up."

However, Jepsen admitted she likes to be more adventurous with her look when she's on stage.

She explained to America's OK! magazine: "The fun thing about the stage is that you can kind of be the ultimate version of yourself without thinking 'Is this appropriate for the street?' You can let loose and go wild."

Jepsen recently revealed she used to pay her backing band with food because she couldn't afford wages.

She said: "It's very surreal to me at times, because I think back to maybe two years ago and my career then versus now.

"The first time that I toured Canada was in the soccer mom van [minivan], with the boys that I'm still playing stadiums with now.

"I was paying them with home-cooked dinners because that's all I could afford, and rushing to my merchandising table to sell shirts afterwards."
