Carly Rae Jepsen has described the gay ending on the video for her infectious hit single Call Me Maybe as “regular.”

The video for Call Me Maybe went viral after fellow Canadian Justin Bieber tweeted that the song is the catchiest tune he's ever heard. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

In an interview with Time magazine, Jepsen, 26, discussed the decision to make her dream guy in the video gay.

When asked, “The boy next door you're chasing ultimately gives his number to another guy. Why'd you make that choice?” Jepsen answered: “I'd love to take credit, but it was totally my director's idea. We both knew we wanted the ending to be fun and unpredictable, and when I read that idea, I loved it. It just seemed so perfect.”

She added about gay rights: “You know, acceptance has never been a question for me. I've grown up knowing it's just the way things should be. When we shot the Call Me Maybe video, we weren't even thinking the ending was not normal. I have so many gay friends that I love. It's a regular thing. And if my video is encouraging that mind frame with other children and other people – well, it's about time, I guess!”
