Carly Rae Jepsen Backs Out of Boy Scouts Jamboree Over Gay Ban


After the urging of Eagle Scout Derek Nance and GLAAD, Carly Rae Jepsen has joined pop rock group Train in backing out of the Boy Scouts' 2013 National Scout Jamboree.

Tweeted Jepsen:

"As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer..."

Don't even call her, maybe.
