Urged on by tens of thousands of petitioners, Carly Rae Jepsen has backed out as a headliner of a Boy Scouts of America concert this summer, saying the Scouts' ban on gay members conflicts with her personal beliefs.
Jepsen, 27, was one of two headlining acts scheduled to play at the 2013 National Scouting Jamboree in West Virginia in July.
In a tweet Tuesday morning, the Canadian singer said she couldn't participate in an event held by a group with an anti-gay agenda.

Angus T. Jones has a tough choice to make this November when he votes in his first presidential election.
Luckily the 18-year-old star of Two and a Half Men, who says he's registered as an independent, has been getting some solid advice from Chelsea Clinton – and, no, she's not pushing one candidate over the other.
"Get an I Voted sticker," Clinton told Jones Wednesday after a National Journal/Microsoft/The Atlantic panel at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. "That's still a really exciting thing for me."
Replied the teen star: "Absolutely! They better give 'em out in L.A."
