The 'Call Me Maybe' star reveals that she lacks the confidence to approach men.

Carly Rae Jepsen has admitted that she has never given a guy her number, despite sounding confident about the opposite sex in her hit track, 'Call Me Maybe'.

The song, which is currently at number one on the Vodafone Big Top 40, includes the lyric: "Hey, I just met you/ And this is crazy/ But here's my number/ So call me maybe."

However, speaking to MTV News, Carly revealed that she had never been good at approaching guys.

"I'm going to be honest, I've never actually given a guy my number before 'cause I find the concept terrifying. Which is kind of where the song sparked from, the idea of why this is so scary. It should be OK," she said.

But Carly did reveal that she once managed to give someone a "kiss-and-run" - and that they ended up dating.

"I don't know what came over me — sometimes I just do things to scare myself," she said.

"But there was a guy and I just went up to him and said hello, and he said hello and I'm like, 'Alright, well, I'm leaving now and it was really nice to meet you,' and I kissed him and then I left."

She added: "Actually, it was a little bit of a romantic story. I was playing at the bar down the street and I put posters up in my neighborhood and he saw and he came to the bar and we ended up dating for month."

Carly's 'Call Me Maybe' managed to prevent her protégé Justin Bieber from topping the Vodafone Big Top 40 last weekend.
