Former teen pop star Aaron Carter has given his first tearful interview after being arrested for driving under the influence and drug charges two days ago.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly after the 29-year-old and his girlfriend, Madison Parker, were arrested in Georgia on Saturday, Carter was first asked what his immediate thoughts were whilst looking at his, admittedly gronk looking, mugshot:



“A broken man… broken. Heartbroken. Four days of no sleep, guarding my girlfriend outside of her car. Making sure she was safe, driving all over the United States of America, trying to get to my radio shows. Doing the best that I can, trying to show up so people will not give up on me again. Cause they gave up on me.”


Aaron Carter Has A Red-Hot Go At Bro Nick In Teary Post-Arrest Interview

Yeeeh, it’s not great.


Well, they say a picture says a thousand words, but in this case not all of those words make sense or seem to adhere to normal human processes of thought. 


What I THINK Aaron is touching on here are how the specifics of his hectic travel schedule possibly informed the lead-up to his alleged DUI, but EW pushed on without clarification, focusing instead on his admittance that he’d been let down by loved ones.


The interviewer asks Carter who in particular has “given up” on him the most and it’s here Aaron lets loose with a spray towards his elder brother and former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter:



“I don’t need Nick’s help. I don’t need that. What I need is people to understand that I’m human and I make mistakes, just like any other human in this world.”


This appears to be in response to Nick’s tweet after the arrest which seems to actually be very supportive:


Whilst the interview does very little to shed light on Carter’s troubles (and we’re not sure if that’s due to Aaron himself or the notoriously shallow EW), one thing’s clear and that’s that Aaron is going through some shit right now and looks in need of desperate support.


We hope he finds it.
