Secret Chess Passion Revealed by Call-Me-Maybe Pop Star Carly Rae Jepsen!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Guess what chess feature we just read on WPTV? Pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen actually never tours without her chess set. The "Call Me Maybe" singer admits she grew up solving chess puzzles that her stepfather left her as he left home for work. She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "My stepfather used to teach it... (and) he'd put out a chess problem for me to solve. In high school I had a big crush on a boy who played chess, and I thought, 'This is going to be useful'."

They should call her, maybe, for the Istanbul Chess Olympiad 2012!
