One Direction: Carly Rae Jepsen and Justin Bieber style!

Carly Rae Jepsen and Justin Bieber

If ever there was a title that would bring in teenagers from Google news, that would be it. Anyway, since Carly Rae Jepsen kinda sorta wrote the biggest song of the summer, she’s finally getting her own major album, which is set to include a duet with Justin Bieber. Except there happens to be a song that bears a resemblance to that One Direction song and yadda yadda yadda seriously all of their songs sound exactly the same anyway. B.F.D. From HuffPo

Beautiful sounds like a Jason Mraz and Dashboard Confessional mash-up. Let’s examine the lyrics. Here are Carly and Justin:

What makes you so beautiful is that you don’t know how beautiful you are to me.
You’re not trying to be perfect, nobody’s perfect, but you are to me.
You try to take my breath away feel the words that I don’t say.

And here, the One Direction boys:

You don’t know you’re beautiful,
If only you saw what I can see,
You’ll understand why I want you so desperately,
Right now I’m looking at you and I can’t believe,
You don’t know,
Oh oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,
Oh oh,
That’s what makes you beautiful

Or, just putting this out there, maybe all these songs are written by people who are trained to mass produce easily marketable songs that appeal to teenage girls who substitute celebrity worship with fulfilling, mature relationships, and the platitude that you’re a diamond in the rough who happens to be better than you think you are happens to be one of the biggest selling points for the swarms of insecure teens who buy into this. Seriously, there’s a One Direction store on Yonge street a couple blocks away from my apartment. On a windy day, I can literally smell the desperation that wafts off the building.
