Well, this is a bit surprising. After
dropping off the face of the earth living without making headlines pretty much since the release of “Take a Picture,” which failed to come remotely close to “Call Me Maybe”-viral status, Carly Rae Jepsen‘s taking the Internet by storm with her latest news — she’s headed to Cinderella on Broadway!
Playing the titular character of Cinderella, she will replace the show’s leading lady come February 4, 2014. Unsurprisingly, the world has plenty to say about the announcement:

But at least Carly has the support of the woman she’s replacing, who really is a princess at heart. We’ll miss you, Laura Osnes!
Have we learned nothing from Ella about charity, generosity, and kindness? @CinderellaBway
