Aaron Carter Dances His Way into Rehab
Jan 24, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Aaron Carter was doing so well. He was on Celebrity Career Life Support, aka Dancing with the Stars, got randomly ripped because of it, and according to his manger he was even working on an album. Well, Aaron's comeback has hit a little snag and the 23-year old has checked himself into rehab.
A source *cough* Nick Carter *cough* tells E! that Carter checked into a Southern California rehab facility earlier this month in order to "finally get help." This source goes on to say that "He [Aaron] was struggling recently and really need this."
Aaron's manager, Johnny Wright, issued this kind-of-creepy statement, confirming the report:
"Several months ago Aaron came to me to help him return to music and to restart his career. He has been in Orlando working on a new album and perfecting his live show and his physical body [Wha?]. Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top [Wait, when was he there to begin with? Just askin'], requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with. Therefore he has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needs that will help him on the music journey he's about to take. He asks that everyone keep him in their prayers and that they respect his privacy at this time."
Okay, standard press release, but "perfecting" his "physical body"? Could you make this sound a little less like cheap porn, Johnny Wright? And also, what other kind of body would we be talking about here?
Meanwhile, the reasoning behind Aaron's visit to rehab sounds strikingly similar to Backstreet Boy-Man, A.J. McLean's, who entered rehab a little over a week ago:
"For personal reasons, I've checked myself into a rehab clinic. With 2011 being a busy year for Backstreet, I want to be healthy and perform and sing for people at my very best and happiest. None of this will affect our current tour plans and I look forward to seeing everyone really soon! Thank you for all of your support and respecting my family and friends privacy during this time."
Either rehab is the new spa where celebrities go to spruce up and cool down before embarking on alleged tours and performances, or Aaron and A.J. are secretly working on their own side project...2011 is going to be all about The Crackstreet Boys.
