The 'Call Me Maybe' singer admits she has always been a big fan of the 'Firework' star.

Carly Rae Jepsen has recalled the first time she ever met Katy Perry stating that she immediately took to the US star.

The 'Good Time' singer spoke to Billboard ahead of the American Music Awards 2012 and said she can't wait to share the stage at the end of the month when she collects the Rising Star award at the publication's Women In Music Event in New York.

"I immediately took to her when I met her the first time," she said of Katy. "Before that I'd been a fan of her music for years, so it's gonna be a special day that we get to share together."

Katy will also be collecting Billboard's Woman Of The Year on 30th November.

Previous recipients of the Rising Star award include Lady Gaga, Jazmine Sullivan and last year's winner – Nicki Minaj.

Meanwhile, Carly also picked up New Artist Of The Year at last night's (18th November) AMAs 2012 with her mentor Justin Bieber the big winner of the night.

The fellow Canadian took home three awards including Artist Of The Year – ahead of the likes of Rihanna, Maroon 5 and Katy Perry.
