Carly Rae Jepsen Cancels Boy Scout Jamboree Appearance
Posted March 7th, 2013 @ 8:03am

Carly Rae Jepsen announced that she will not be participating in the Boy Scouts' Jamboree due to their policy of banning openly gay scouts.  The pop-star was the subject of a petition on Change.org.  The petition requested that Jepsen and Train refuse to perform at the Jamboree.

Train posted that they would not play unless the group changed their policy last week.  Now, Jepsen has explained her position on Twitter.

The Jamboree is held once every four years and draws more than 50,000 scouts to West Virginia.
