It’s a relief that rapper and lyric scholar Mac Miller was on Twitter at the precise moment Maroon 5′s Adam Levine became confused over Carly Rae Jepsen’s
underplayed song “Call Me Maybe.” Considering it’s been on the radio for months now it’s baffling he doesn’t understand the incredibly simple and non-rhetorical question she puts forth in the chorus.
Then again, it’s better to ask late than be confused for the rest of your life. Because then one day 40 years from now you’ll ask your grandson what it means and he’ll be all like: ”you went 40 years without knowing why she asks you to call her MAYBE?”
Miller responded to Levine’s scattered question (it was accompanied by a compliment about Carly’s given name) with a simple explanation to ensure Adam would understand. So summed up, this is pretty much the most unexpected and best Twitter conversation in history. Well, besides Drake getting one-upped by gazillionaire T. Boone Pickens.
And yes, we do understand this was all in good fun — but dissecting Twit Lit like it’s Brit Lit is a favourite pastime.
