Carly Rae Jepsen Cancels Boy Scouts Events in Support of LBGT Rights
Jepsen released a statement explaining that her decision is rooted in her self-identification "...[a]s an artist who believes in equality for all people."
What does Carly Rae stiffing the Scouts tell us about the contemporary pop-culture and civil-rights movements?
It tells us that, even though she should probably direct the energy toward getting her gaydar repaired, Carly Rae will do anything to get that hottie from the video for her breakthrough single, "Call Me, Maybe?" to maybe call her, even though he's more into her male bandmates (because he's gay).
A release from Change.org stated that in addition to the same-sex-sweating character in the video, Jepsen's "music is a staple at pride events across the US." So even if she can't gulp down that hunkalunk's six-pack like a case of Mexican cola, there are plenty of gay fish in the sea.
