Just when you thought it was safe to sing at the Boy Scouts of America’s 2013 National Scouting Jamboree, along comes a petition with 62,000 signatures saying it’s not a good idea.

The petition was launched by Derek Nance, an Eagle Scout and former Boy Scout Camp leader, and directed toward Carly Rae Jepsen, a massive pop star.

Jepsen announced on Twitter this morning that she’ll be cancelling her appearance at the festive jamboree: “As an artist who believes in equality for all people,” she tweeted, “I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer.”

In so doing, Jepsen is following in the tracks of former co-headliner Train, who pulled out of the event last Friday.

Meanwhile, in tangentially related news, a mashup of Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole” went viral this week.
