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.

As crisis manager Olivia Pope on ABC's Scandal, Kerry Washington knows how to handle a sticky situation.
But as an actress going about her daily life, Washington had a hard time giving fans of the series the answer to one simple question: Who is Quinn Perkins?
"[Quinn Perkins] represents my whole summer because all summer long people were walking up to me saying 'Who is Quinn Perkins!?' in supermarkets, airports ... It was so much fun! Luckily I didn't know [who she actually is] at the time because I don't know if I'd be able to keep it a secret for that long!" Washington, 35, tells PEOPLE.

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."

Could there be an (on-screen) wedding in their future?
Modern Family stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, who play partners Mitchell and Cameron on the Emmy-winning ABC comedy, posted a photo of themselves on their WhoSay pages, asking, "How could you not want to see us tie the knot?" just as it appeared they may be closer to legally being able to do so.
On Tuesday, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that California's Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage in the state, was unconstitutional.
Ferguson also Tweeted: "Historic! #Prop8 is unconstitutional. @AFER & I won’t stop until ALL Americans are #free2marry."
On the show, their characters also have a daughter together, Lily, but are not officially married.
