Aaron Carter has apparently been reminiscing about his legacy recently…and he wants us to give him some love for paving the way for Justin Bieber.
One of Aaron’s Twitter followers recently asked him why he never achieved the success that Justin had, and Aaron was put off by the question. He said, “Listen…I’ve been in this industry before he was born.
“I’ve had harder times and always bounce back. No I’m not Justin Bieber, I’m Aaron Carter.
“I’m also in construction. I paved the way. These kids have NEVER paid me homage.”
Believe it or not, Aaron did launch his music career in 1994, right around the time Justin was born.
But it’s a little ridiculous for him to suggest that he’s the first teen pop idol. They existed well before Aaron…including Michael Jackson, Donny Osmond, Stevie Wonder, and Hanson, just to name a few.
By the way, Aaron also announced that he’s going to propose to his girlfriend Lina Valentina soon, and that they’re expecting a kid. They’ve only been dating for a few months. Aaron first confirmed it in September.
