On Twitter last night, pop star Aaron Carter came out as bisexual.
Aaron, 29, is the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and has released four albums of his own.
In a letter posted on Twitter, he said that he was 13 when he “started to find boys and girls attractive.”
“It wasn’t until I was 17-years-old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with,” Aaron wrote.
Aaron ended his letter with a quotation from Boy George: “I’ve never felt as thought I didn’t belong, I just acted as though I did.”

To start off, I would like to say that I love each and EVERY ONE of my fans. There’s something I’d like to say that I feel is important for myself and my identity that has been weighing on my chest for nearly half of my life.
This doesn’t bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time and would like lifted off of me. I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive. There were years that went by that I thought about it, but it wasn’t until I was 17-years-old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with.
To me music has always been my temple. Music will ALWAYS be what transcends all of us and myself. The studio has always been my safe haven. But the ultimate goal for me is to be satisfied. I never want to be a figure of disappointment.
The best quote to sum
“I’ve never felt as thought I didn’t belong, I just acted as though I did.” -Boy George
