Aaron Carter admits he fears dying like Michael Jackson and how he is determined to live despite getting down to the same weight as the King of Pop when he died.
“There were times when I would get scared. I would stress out because of all the stuff going on inside of me and then I’d lose all this weight, and then I get in a bad relationship. Then that would stress me out, and I would be emaciated – 115 pounds. I couldn’t believe it,” Aaron stated.
He continued, “Michael died at 115 pounds. It was heartbreaking,” who passed away in June 2009 from the combination of drugs in his body at the time.
“I love Michael but that’s not going to be me. Look at me. Look at my transformation. My health is very important and I was so scared.”
Carter also revealed that he wrote a song for Jackson the day after he died.
Describing his relationship with his family, including Backstreet Boy Nick, Carter likened it to Jackson’s relationship with his brothers. “I’m close with my siblings, but it’s not like what you think,” he explained.
“I’m close to my siblings like I am with like Michael Jackson was with his. Like that’s how I am.
“It’s weird if you think about it. I don’t know. I knew Michael very well, and he told me a lot of things that I can’t really repeat just because it would be everywhere.”
