Carly Rae Jepsen Cancels Boy Scouts’ Jamboree Apperance

Carly Rae Jepsen

Yesterday, Train made it know that they have no desire to be part of the Boy Scouts of america Jamboree as long as they are against having gay scouts. now fellow jamboree performer  Carly Rae Jepsen has also spoken out it and has decided that she would follow in suite and cancel her performance as long as the boy scouts believe that gay scouts shouldn’t be allowed.

The “Call Me Maybe” star tweeted the following on the subject matter:

“As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer. I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level and stay informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.”

Looks like the petition did what it wanted to; two of the main performers for the Jamboree have pulled out months before the summer concert was set to take place. In recent years, the organization has been taking a lot of heat over their ban on openly gay members. Back in January, there was talk about lifting the discriminatory ban, but the vote was scheduled to go to vote in May.

Madonna to Present Anderson Cooper with GLAAD Award


Madonna may have recently been in the news for her lack of listening to Instagram and posting rather “racy” pictures, but now the pop diva has been confirmed to be returning to the limelight, but not for a silly reason like pictures. The material girl will be presenting Anderson Cooper with the Vito Russo Award, a GLAAD Award that recognizes openly gay media professionals.

If you have been snoozing, or just under a rock the last year, Anderson Cooper choose to decline any way of publicize his relationships until July of last year when he gave Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Beast the permission to publish an email where he admits that he is in fact gay (to the sadness of many women around the world).

Madonna, on the other hand, has been very vocal about her support of the LGBTQ causes from challenging an anti-gay ban in St. Petersburg in Russia to urging he African nation of Malawi to pardon a gay couple arrested in 2009 and convicted on indecency charges.

The GLAAD Awards will be held on March 16 in New York and tickets to the event are still on sale.
