Cadaveresque Carter

Why is Aaron Carter performing at gay pride festivals?  Not that he shouldn’t.  I think it’s fine.  Not only am I unclear why a gay organization would want Aaron Carter to sing, I’m not sure why anyone would want to see him!  I hear he did OK at Phoenix Pride.  But leading up to LA Pride, someone asked him if he was worried about any terrorism or violence.  He said, “No, I’ll shoot back!”  Well, this caused quite a bit of concern – as someone who hosted LA Pride more than anyone in the festival’s history, I can tell you I would not have been too thrilled to have someone with a pistol in his pocket on my bill.  The organizers got him to retract the statement.  “I won’t pack heat at LA Pride.  Emotions got me.”  Days after the event, he landed in the hospital looking like Spawn of Skeletor – should anyone be making such a movie.  This led some skinny shaming – yeah, like that’s a bad thing.  “A grown woman was gossiping about me when I have a eating disorder, telling people I need to eat 5 cheeseburgers cause I look like I’m dying.  This is body shaming.  You guys are bullying me.”  At least they didn’t have a gun!

Meanwhile, Aaron’s brother Nick is part of ABC‘s pretty lame Boy Band show with Baby Bunton, Timbaland, and Rita Ora.  Nick still looks good and has some interesting things to say.  But so far, I can’t imagine any of these people will become stars.  That said, I’ll watch for a couple more weeks and pray they come up with a contestant who grabs me.

No word on whether Nick or Aaron Carter are participating on The Lou Pearlman Story, which is being produced as a limited series by Desmond Child and Andreas Carlsson.  You remember Big Lou as the guy (literally) behind Backstreet Boys, NSync, O-Town, and oodles of other pre-pubescent boy bands.  He had a particular fondness for Nick Carter, which his mom says is still difficult for Nick to talk about.  And don’t get me started about all those videos of Ashley Parker Angel from O-Town in the shower.  Sigh…
