Aaron Carter was born Aaron Charles Carter on December 7, 1987. You probably all know his older brother Nick Carter of The Backstreet Boys! Aaron also has a twin sister named Angel who is an inspiring model. Aaron is very close with his twin sister Angel, she has traveled with Aaron on tour and even appeared in the video “Shake It”. He also has 2 other sisters BJ and Leslie. Older sister Leslie is an up-and-coming pop star in her own right. She and Aaron have performed and toured together. Away from the limelight, they like to play piano and keyboards together. Oldest sister Bobby Jean, or B.J. as her siblings and friends call her, has done some modeling and hopes to break into acting.
Here is a cute but embarrassing story that happened to him as told by Aaron: “When I was little, I was in the grocery store with my Grandma, and I didn’t realize that you had to put the fruit and vegetables on the scale to pay for them. I thought it was free. So I grabbed a carrot and started eating it. In front of all of my friends, my Grandma pulled down my pants and gave me a spanking.” awww poor little boy!
Aaron began his singing career early on when he was just 7 years old and was in a band called Dead End. He wanted his child-hood group “Dead End” to be called “Dirty Drumsticks.” Now that is a funny name for a band! He left the band after 2 years and released his first solo album at the age of 9! His first single in 1997 was called “Crush on You” His first full-length album Aaron Carter was released on December 1, 1997. His other albums that followed were Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) in 2000, Oh Aaron in 2001 and Another Earthquake in 2002. Compilation albums include Most Requested Hits in 2003, Come Get It: The Very Best of Aaron Carter & 2 Good 2 B True in 2006.
In September 2006, Aaron proposed to former Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche, in Las Vegas in front of 200 people. Kari Ann once dated Aaron’s older brother, Nick. Aaron initially wanted to go straight to a Vegas chapel to say their vows, but he was persuaded to wait and plan a conventional wedding. Aaron called off his engagement to Playboy Playmate, Kari Ann Peniche after just six days, admitting he’d made a mistake. Aaron (after calling off his engagement 6 days after proposing): I got caught up in the moment and proposed. I then realized it was a hasty thing to do and I am not ready for marriage quite yet. I acted on impulse. I do want to be a married man one day, but just with the right person… I want a good girl, and it’s really hard to find one.
Aaron has become an actor, making guest appearances on several television series, including Lizzie McGuire, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and 7th Heaven. He made his feature film debut in a cameo in the 2004 comedy, Fat Albert. He was the voice for a soldier named Joseph Plumb Martin in Liberty’s Kids. His first lead role in a feature was in Popstar (2005), a direct-to-video film that was based heavily on his own life as a performer. In April 2001, he made his Broadway debut, playing JoJo the Who in Seussical the Musical. Aaron and his siblings starred in a reality show, House of Carters, where all siblings lived together in one house. I never did see this show but I bet it would have been interesting! It was only on for 2 months in 2006. A couple of years ago I remember watching Aaron on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars where he was eliminated from along with his partner Karina Smirnoff. They finished in 5th place. Bummer!
On January 23, 2011, Aaron Carter’s manager Johnny Wright (music manager) announced that Carter had entered a treatment facility “to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with.”After entering the facility, Carter’s first message to his fans was, “The main thing in life is not to be afraid of being human.” On February 10, 2011, it was announced that Carter had successfully completed a month of rehab at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California. Aaron returned to his native Florida to work on his new album, which I know his fans are anxious to hear!
