I’m Torn: Aaron Carter


aaron carterMy obsession with Aaron Carter stems back to my early middle schools days… and maybe a year or two of high school if I’m being honest. I went to all of his concerts, saw him in Seussical – The Musical not once, not twice, but three times, and followed his and Hilary Duff’s relationship religiously. The day he guest starred on “Lizzie McGuire” was maybe the first time I really knew what love was.

But then one day my beloved Aaron decided to take to drugs, and my delusions of perfection were busted. He divorced his parents, got engaged to a Playboy model for all of two seconds and generally sucked all around. I let my love for AC fall by the wayside.

Now Aaron is back in the spotlight and I’m torn. The last I saw him, Aaron had left me broken-hearted and disappointed. Can he dance his way back into my heart?

Love it

Aaron and his partner, Karina Smirnoff, kicked off the season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” and boy was he looking good. His Cha-Cha number was absolutely stunning.  I would go as far as to say, Aaron may be the new Lord of the Dance.

All the bad press surrounding Aaron and the Carter family seems to be forgotten, and apparently, he doesn’t drink anymore! That’s good. Keep yourself out of trouble, Aaron. We know you’ve had problems with gateway drugs in the past. In fact, we saw it live (well, pre-recorded) on E!

I still know all the words to “That’s How I Beat Shaq” and would give anything for Aaron to do a remake of that classic hit. He was a budding pop-star with a bright future. Since his downfall he has cleaned up his act, and I think he deserves another chance.

And between you and me, I secretly hope Aaron Googles his own name, sees this post and contacts me in hopes of regaining a neglected fan. Fingers crossed!

Loathe it

So much of what I loved about him back in his “Oh Aaron” days was his little boy preciousness. But it seems that he hasn’t quite outgrown that phase yet. My guess is he is weighing in at around 101 lbs, two of which can be attributed to the amount of hair gel used to get his blonde locks to swoop in an ocean-like wave. And there is no doubt in my mind that he will never be able to grow a full beard.

Also, and I hate to say it, but I’m questioning Aaron’s sexuality. There was a slight blip on my gay-dar as I watched him shake his hips on “Dancing with the Stars.” I have no evidence to back this up, but I’m definitely going to keep a close eye on his personal life.

And his most grave offense to date happened in a recent interview on Chelsea Lately. No, I’m not talking about that graphic tee he was wearing; Aaron admitted, with a seemingly proud smile on his face, to cheating on Hillary Duff…. with her best friend!  That’s a no-no, little Aaron. What a pig.

So what’s the word, is Aaron’s party back on? Or am I living in the past?

My heart follows Aaron Carter's jazz flute voice and leaps like a platypus at the whisper of his name.
