There was a time, not so long ago, when Justin Bieber didn't exist. It's hard to believe we know, but it's true. ?But who did you have to provide annoying bubblegum pop that sent tweenage girls hearts a flutter?? We hear you ask.
The answer is simple, Aaron Carter. He was the brother of a Backstreet Boy, wore a backwards baseball cap and he had Bieber?s trademark mix of a baby face, blond hair and an unthreatening charm that saw him climb the charts with such sweet puppy love anthems as, ?I Want Candy,? and, ?Crazy Little Party Girl.?
Naturally all of this made him a target for Michael Jackson.
THAT?S RIGHT! Despite being dead for over 2 years, it's time for yet another instalment of, ?What inappropriate thing has Wacko Jacko done now??
According to poor, sweet little Aaron (now 23 and somewhat less cute than he once was), during his early teenage years he spent a lot of time hanging out with The King of Pop, which would be a dream come true for any impressionable young singer.
It was during his time spent with Jackson that Carter claims that Jacko brought out the Jesus Juice and proceeded to ply the underage pop sensation with wine and cocaine.
Now why would a fully-grown man need to give an unsupervised minor entrusted into his care intoxicating substances? No, seriously? if anyone could tell us that would be great, the only things we can think of would result in our, rather overworked, lawyer having a heart attack if we published them.
Carter was quoted as saying:
“I did things with him that nobody else did? But I was also troubled about what he did to me.”
Which sounds downright sinister to us. His mum even had to call the police in when she found out what Jackson had been doing to her poor sweet little boy.
For now, let's just take some time to remember Aaron in his more innocent days:
If only it was just Candy that wanted you, eh Aaron?
