Aaron Carter may not be your typical pop star role model, and he also seems to have gone through that notorious child star curse. Hopefully, he’s now on the better side of things. Probably as part of therapy, he’s now coming clean about a lot of things – the first being his sexuality. Yes, society does pretend to be open-minded, but it is always difficult, especially for someone in the public eye, to admit their most deepest secrets to the world. But Aaron Carter has taken that brave step. In a long post on Twitter and later on Instagram, the pop star opened up to fans about being bisexual. Here is what he had to say:
“To start off, I would like to say that I love each and EVERY ONE of my fans. There’s something that I’d like to say that I feel is important for myself and my identity that has been weighing on my chest for nearly half of my life. This doesn’t bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off of me. I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive. There were years that went by that I thought about it, but it wasn’t until I was 17-years old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with.”
He continued, “To me music has always been my temple. Music will ALWAYS be what transcends all of us and myself. The studio has always been my safe haven. But the ultimate goal for me is to be satisfied. I never want to be a figure of disappointment.”
“The best quote to sum
“I’ve never felt as though I didn’t belong, I just acted as though I did.” – Boy George” (sic)
Aaron Carter was recently arrested on a DUI charge, but posted bail and is now on tour.
