Portis Wasp- 6 questions with Aaron Carter

A guilty pleasure you can’t seem to quit?

Chocolate Häagen-Dazs ice cream. Some nights I even find myself getting up at 4am just to eat it.

What superpower would you love to have for 24 hours?

To be able to cure diseases and travel around curing as many people as I could.

Which flavour of ice cream best describes your personality and why?

Chocolate Häagen-Dazs ice cream. While I was on tour in Germany a while back I couldn’t get enough of it, but then eventually got sick of it. I just recently starting eating it again and remembered how much I love it!

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever had to do for money?

Nothing really. 

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

I don’t normally eat eggs in the morning. But if I did, they would be over easy, with a side of toast to dip in.

Thanks Aaron!

Radio Disney Celebrates 20th Birthday With Aaron Carter Reunion & His Planned 'I Want Candy' Remix

 

Even though Radio Disney has been the home to Disney Channel child stars like Miley CyrusHilary Duff and the Jonas Brothers and caters to the music tastes of young people across the country, it's not a kid itself anymore: The radio channel turns 20 on Friday (Nov. 18).

For a lot of artists -- including teen pop icon Aaron Carter -- Radio Disney was a launching pad. Carter made his mark on the radio station at the tender age of 13 at the turn of the millennium, around the time Christina Aguilera's "Genie in a Bottle" dominated pop radio. The now-28-year-old stopped by the Radio Disney studio on Monday to look back on his music career and what role RD played in it.

"When I first started in the '90s, it was very different," Carter reflected. "Being young was a lot harder. It was a lot more difficult to get on the radio. Radio Disney was my best supporter when it came down to the music."

The "That's How I Beat Shaq" singer even mentioned how much technology has impacted the way audiences consume music now. "We didn't have YouTube or any of that stuff," Carter said. "Back then, we had mall signings that lasted five hours."

Even as Carter and his tween and teen fans have grown older and out of the pop scene, Carter has noticed that his audience still includes Radio Disney listeners. "I think the biggest surprise for me is that I still have a lot of young fans, and I think it has to do with a lot of the [fans'] older sisters," Carter explained.

For both original and more recent Aaron Carter fans, in light of Radio Disney's birthday celebration, Carter announced that he will be re-recording and reproducing his Radio Disney favorite "I Want Candy" and putting it on his forthcoming album LOVE, due on Valentine's Day 2017.

Aaron Carter's New Single " Fools Gold"

Aaron Carter, now 27, first hit the Hot 100 when he was just 13 — a child star riding the boy band wave that prominently featured his older brother Nick (Backstreet Boy and current Dancing With The Stars contestant).

Now, Carter is preparing to release his long-awaited fifth album (his last studio release was 2002’s Another Earthquake). “Fool’s Gold,” previewing exclusively on Billboard below, is the first snippet of what’s to come — though currently unmixed and unmastered (and without label support), the single is an intriguing look at how the singer best known for his Radio Disney hits has evolved over the past decade.

”I’ve been working on new music for the last 10 years, and I’m beyond excited that I’m in a position where I can release my new album soon,” Carter tells Billboard. “I’m traveling today to Deadmau5’s house for Thanksgiving, and I think it’s only appropriate to show my fans a clip of the music I’ve been working on.”
