Posted by Nicky with No Comments

Back in the days of Disney Channel’s Lizzie McGuire, a young Aaron Carter wowed preteen girls with his boyish “I Want Candy” love song. Fast forward to the present, and he is wowing audiences again, playing a stage role that is an American classic: “Matt” from The Fantasticks. Although he wasn’t initially familiar with the play, he quickly learned that it was one of the longest running plays in American history, he said on The Today Show on Jan. 23.

Aaron Carter Has Grown Up from His “I Want Candy” Days

America knew him as the young blond kid featured on Hillary Duff’s Lizzie McGuire, and as the mischievous preteen who coaxed his parents out of the house so he could have “Aaron’s Party” in his young music video. He sang the lyrics, “I always tried to be the flyest kid on the block; The popular one with the rising stock…”

Posted by Nicky with No Comments

Nick Carter, 31, bad boy singer from the Backstreet Boys, is bringing a new tour February 10 to the Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac to support his second solo album “I’m Taking Off.” Tickets are on sale here.

The show in metro Detroit is special because Carter agreed to a backstage visit with 30-year-old Sarah Cheek, a longtime fan who was recently diagnosed with fourth stage breast cancer — after her husband reached out and said it would be her dream come true. What should she expect?

“We’re just going to have fun,” Carter said. “It’s going to be a great experience… They ask questions, and you have to feel the situation out. You never know what you’re going to get. Sometimes they’re shy. Other times they’re open and want to know everything. You just have to fun with it. I’m a normal guy. To them it might seem like I’m not …But I’m a normal guy.” Read the rest of this entry »

Aaron Carter Interview!

Posted by Nicky with No Comments

We had the pleasure of speaking with Aaron Carter about everything from his current concerts and performances on Broadway, to his short stint on the Food Network, and his family.

Infectious Magazine-Hey Aaron, thanks for taking the time to speak with us! How are you?

Aaron Carter: It’s just what I do, ha ha. Actually it’s been more difficult to maintain the balance with none of it going on. When all of this is happening, that’s when it’s all balanced. It’s awesome and I’m doing all kinds of things, I’m going to be on five different networks this year in different little things here and there. Just staying busy, I’m doing eight shows a week on Broadway, it’s a lot but its how I like it.

IM: You were on an episode of Rachel vs. Guy Celebrity Cook Off. Being that it’s such a departure from your normal routine, tell us a little bit about that experience, and working with both Rachel and Guy.

AC: Well yeah, it’s a cooking show! Ha ha. I don’t have a restaurant! Ha ha. It was fun, at times. I have a lot of respect for Rachel Ray, her ability and the food industry, Guy [Fieri]. They’re both good people, it was a good little thing to go on and test my ability, I wasn’t very good, I was the first off, ha ha. But it is what it is. I had a smile on my face, I’m not a sore loser. You lose, you lose. Read the rest of this entry »
