Power pop queen Carly Rae Jepsen has amassed your dream girl squad for her new "Boy Problems" video. The pop star teamed up with director Petra Collins for the glittery retro visual, which combines 70s/80s/90s aesthetics with a very 2016 group of kickass creative ladies — including Alexandra Marzella, Diana Veras, Barbie Ferreira, Minahil Mahmood, Paloma Elsesser, and even teen publishing doyenne Tavi Gevinson herself. Speaking to Rookie, where the video was suitably premiered this morning, Jepsen explained how it all started with a mutual Instagram crush. 

"Out of the blue, Petra reached out to ask if she could make a video for her favorite track from the album: 'Boy Problems.' What she didn't know is that I had been following her online, via Instagram and other outlets, for a while and had become a HUGE fan of her photographs and artwork. I think she has a very gifted eye for a refreshing look at youth and beauty, and the way she plays with color always stands out to me. So the answer was an immediate YES! We met that first day in New York and were giddy with creating something new together and I am so pleased for how the dark and glittery scenes we imagined turned out. I hope you enjoy it!"
