Singer Carly Rae Jepsen, who is dating photographer David Kalani Larkins, says she’s missed out on the everyday aspect of being with her partner as a result of her “intense” touring schedule.
The 30-year-old “Call Me Mayb”‘ singer, however, enjoys expressing her relationship fantasies in her lyrics, reported Female First.
“The lifestyle that I have, it’s a little bit surreal to have a relationship in this world. My boyfriend, who directed the ‘Run Away With Me’ video, flew into New York for a day-and-a-half for this, and I’ll be doing a show both of those days.
“It’s really intense, and it’s really sporadic. I think a lot of the real-life stuff – six years of being next to each other while you brush your teeth, leaving dirty towels not the floor – I haven’t really experienced. I’m very youthful in the fact that my relationships have always been very distance and very glorified, so I think that comes out in my writing,” she said.
The “Boy Problems” hitmaker likes to write about her “fairy-tale” expectations of a relationship because that’s a time when she can “play” with reality.
“It’s very fantasy-based and fairy-tale ish because that’s the part of my life that I’m lucky enough to play with. Or maybe I’m not lucky… I don’t know. Depends on your opinion.”
