Carly Rae Jepsen back at work

Carly Rae Jepsen is already back to work after Christmas.

The 'Call Me Maybe' hitmaker has been busy with the release of her third studio album 'Emotion' and preparing to star in 'Grease Live' alongside Vanessa Hudgens, Julianne Hough and Jessie J, so only got to spend a brief amount of time with her loved ones.

Speaking before Christmas Day (25.12.15), the 29-year-old star told BANG Showbiz: "I have four days off. Not a huge amount of time, but I'll be at home with the family in Canada."

Despite the short time off, the singer is looking forward to "just being ridiculous" hanging out with her family.

Asked what her favourite Christmas memory is, she revealed: "Of all time? I think that when we were little we used to go to Hairs and Hot Springs, this hotel up the way, and we would take over the old school dance floor where the Jones boys still play, and that was our entire family just being ridiculous, and one year we had this great big snowball fight. That was the greatest of all time.

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty previously said she hopes the release of her new album will encourage fans to be more interested in her music than her private life.

She said: "For lovers of pop music, I want to be able to scratch that itch. I love pop music from the '80s because there's so much longing in it. The melodies aren't just hooky for the moment and annoying in your head - it's emotional. That was my mission".
