It was only a matter of time. Even though her hit single "Call Me Maybe" has been everywhere recently, Carly Rae Jepsen wasn't going to be certifiably famous until she had one alleged nude scandal. That happened Monday, when nude photos, rumored to be of Jepsen, hit the Interwebs. (You can see the NSFW pics here.)
So were the photos really Jepsen? Luckily for the 26-year-old songstress, they were not. The actual woman showing her lady parts on the Internet is 21-year-old model Destiny Benedict, who acknowledged the resemblance in a tweet on Tuesday.
"Well I just want to say this Carly Rae is a beautiful girl and i'm honored to have been mistaken as her," she writes.
Jepsen's spokesperson was also quick to say that the photos weren't her client, telling Mr. Paparazzi that, "This is 200% NOT Carly."
And a good thing too, because Ms. Benedict likes to get naked a lot and even has an unfortunate nickname that, in the interest of staying classy, we won't print here.
That's wouldn't exactly be the best image for an up-and-coming Canadian star who was signed by Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun. But everyone seems to have their own porn-star look-alike moment nowadays, so Jepsen should just consider it flattering instead of an insult. And if she ever needs a doppelganger in one of her videos, she should probably call Benedict, maybe?
