Carly Rae Jepsen Boyfriend: Matthew Koma, Singer/Songwriter. Does Carly Rae Jepsen have a boyfriend? She totally does. His name is Matthew Koma. No he’s not the cute guy in the Call Me Maybe video who, as we very well know, is into other guys. So who is Matthew Koma? Music website, ArjanWrites, describes him as an “emerging singer/songwriter”. We guess its safe to bet that his emergence will be very fast indeed now that he’s dating Carly Rae Jepsen who’s own emergence from being a Canadian Idol contestant to a world-recognized artist is faster than the speed of light.
Matthew is from New York and has collaborated with other musicians such as Sebastian Ingrosso, Alesso, Zedd, and the Far East Movement. Here’s what he says of his songwriting style:
I write about things that I know are sincere and that I can speak about from a real place. I feel that’s really the only way for me to connect with people. [Music] needs to come from an honest place. Songwriting is an honest process for me so it is very reflective of what I’m going through in that moment, experiencing or seeing.
I think there has to be a certain level of experience with what you’re writing about to really tap into the main points of that emotion to connect with people in a real way. I think people can tell when somebody talks about something from a real place.
Matthew and Carly Rae were spotted recently at the Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood. This must be their coming out party as a couple, huh? Well, we wish both of them luck as they navigate the highs and lows of stardom in the music business. Watch out for the Hollywood sharks, CarMatt. Or should it be MattCar?
Anyhoo, does anyone of you fellow Famewatchers happen to know the brand of this leather jacket Matt is wearing? It’s totally badass and chic at the same time.
