Until now I've been completely indifferent toward her, but she just rocketed several floors in my opinion.  Rock on, pop tart.

OMG  I so value her opinion.  Her life experiences, worldly travels and introspection giver he a unique view point on social issues.

Whenever someone who has a elevated public clout gives the proverbial middle finger to the Boy Scouts I'm all for it.

I'm sorry, did you say something? And if so, why should we care?

No, but her popularity is significant enough that not only did the Boy Scouts want her to perform at their Jamboree (and I know they didn't ask you, don't be bitter) it also means that when she decides to not perform it puts a spotlight on the issue.

It doesn't make any difference whether you value her opinion, but that's because if you decide to not go to one of her shows because you don't agree with her stand on an issue, it's not going to show up in the news, no one cares.

So, when did 10 year old boys like to listen to Carly Rae Jepsen and Train?   Who booked that show in the first place for a Boy Scout convention?

dletter: Who booked that show in the first place for a Boy Scout convention?


I believe the answer is embedded in the question.
 
2013-03-05 01:17:52 PM
No one is calling you. STFU already!
 
2013-03-05 01:19:10 PM
Isn't she Canadian?
 
2013-03-05 01:20:54 PM
Aren't they known for helping old ladies?  Maybe they can book Madonna instead.

Yeah, I'd bone her, too.

I know right?  Nobody in Americas has ever listened to a Canadian artist before in the history of ever!

Props to her for telling them to stuff it. She's still not forgiven for that insufferable earworm.
 
2013-03-05 01:26:14 PM
Good for her and Train.  Stories like this give me hope that one day I will be able to marry in my home state of Ohio.  I'm not holding my breath, just a little more optimistic.
Plus, I really don't hang out at clubs anymore, but I'm sure a large part of her sales were spent with gay money.

I doubt she cares much about the value you place on her opinion. Sounds like she is standing behind her beliefs. Good for her.

I wouldn't call the BSOA a homophobic group considering that it is affiliated with the Catholic Church and was essentially set up to make young boys more vulnerable and accessible to pedophiles associated with the church. More than half of its members have reported either witnessing molestation of being molested themselves since the organization was founded in 1910.
 
2013-03-05 01:31:35 PM
I'm not homophobic, but I'm willing to pretend I am if it will stop her music from playing on the local radio stations.

I'm sure Ted Nugent would be happy to perform at the Boy Scouts Jamboree. Unless of course he is dead or in jail...

Grimlock2099: I'm sure Ted Nugent would be happy to perform at the Boy Scouts Jamboree. Unless of course he is dead or in jail...


There's something darkly amusing about the thought of Ted Nugent going out in front of a bunch of 10 year-olds, pulling out an AR-15 and screaming "HILLARY CLINTON CAN SUCK THIS BIG BLACK COCK!"

Off-topic, but exactly what happens at a Carly Rae Jepsen concert other than a room full of people killing time until the encore?

There's something darkly amusing about the thought of Ted Nugent going out in front of a bunch of 10 year-olds, pulling out an AR-15 and screaming "HILLARY CLINTON CAN SUCK THIS BIG BLACK COCK!"  trying to decide which one he'll "adopt."

FTFY!

Also, not a fan of the Carly Rae Jetson, but good for her for sticking to her beliefs.

That was exactly what I thought!  Thank goodness we have 20-somethings to sort this stuff out for us.

Is it just me, or is the idea of hundreds of Boy Scouts singing and dancing along to "Call Me Maybe" kinda, you know, gay?

And having those 10-year-olds think "Wow, these lyrics are really juvenile. I mean, come on, I may laugh myself into a coma at a fart, but even I'm above a song named 'Wang Dang Sweet Poontang.'"

Okay so she and Train back out... So you can be sure other pop/rock acts won't sign on.... So look for country acts to appear, and wave the flag.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with the sentiment, but can we PLEASE get past this "enlightened celebrity" thing??  Please??

Do you see every thread as an excuse to harp about your own pet political causes, no matter how flimsily related they might be to the thread? Perhaps professional help might be in order

I doubt it's enlightenment. It considered a human right where she's from.

The Boy Scouts are an organization that is changing in regards to the homosexual issue. My humble opinion is that Carly Rae Jepsen shouldn't have cancelled the concert but rather use it as a way to reach them and communicate her concerns.
 
2013-03-05 02:35:25 PM
Does anyone other than prepubescent girls and mall retail stores like her "music"?

I refuse to believe that boy scouts would actually want to listen to that crap. Girl scouts would...maybe

I had to google train to even know who they were. Soft pop rock. Just what no young boys are into.


WTF were they thinking trying to book these acts in the first place?

Both she and Train have indicated that depending on how the BSA council votes in May, they might be willing to appear.  So she is using this to communicate her concerns.

As do a lot of folks.  The "enlightened celebrity" believes his/her fame establishes him/her self as a moral authority on just about anything.

It certainly sounds like she's doing just that, this is the third time I've heard about this today it's not even noon.

Frankly, public shaming of bigots is something we need a lot more of in this country. Pretending that this kind of shiat is even remotely acceptable any more will only lead us backward.
