This New Carly Rae Jepsen Music Video Just Made An Important Point About Modern Relationships

Carly Rae Jepsen doesn’t have to be one of your favorite musicians (or even someone you can stand) for you to appreciate what she is doing with her latest music video.

The video for the song “Boy Problems” is a throwback of sorts to a 1980s slumber party scene. But it also features plenty of selfies, laptop computers and tablets.

While the song is ostensibly just about those moments when you just can’t stand your friend talking about her troubles with boys, it can also be read in a deeper way.

Perhaps Jepsen is trying to point out how silly modern drama about relationships and social pressures tied to those moments really are.

We shouldn’t be so hung up on another person that we lose sight of ourselves and our own emotional well being. And in the end, drama is such a waste of time and energy.

Anyway, watch the video and tell us in the comments whether you think our theory makes any sense:
