Aaron Carter is flying free now!
Just days after coming out as bisexual, the 29-year-old is giving a candid interview about the thoughts and feelings leading up to his decision to go public.

In a chat with The Bert Show, he says:
“To be honest, I’ve been thinking about it for many years. I just felt like it was something I needed to do… It was something that I just felt like was important and I needed to say. It was a part of a new chapter of turning 30, on Dec. 7 this year.”
He also says he knew he was bi as young as 12, but:
“It wasn’t until I was about 17 until… there was somebody I had a small relationship with.”
Speaking of relationships, you’ve probably read that Aaron and Madison Parker broke up right before his announcement. Well now the singer is elaborating on their fallout, explaining:
“I had discussed it with my ex-girlfriend, and she didn’t really understand it and she didn’t want [to]. And that was it! So we left it mutual and parted ways.”
While it must be hard to not have a familiar shoulder to lean on during this vulnerable moment, Aaron is keeping his head up, thanking everyone who’s shown their support:
“The process is at your own pace and when you feel comfortable. There might be a lot of people who don’t agree with it, but you might be surprised by the people who do. I was shocked — I was blown away. My fans know that I’m a heart on the sleeve kinda guy. That’s the way I am.”
As for what the future holds?
“Whether I choose to be with a woman or a man is my decision. I find men and women attractive and that’s never gonna change.”
Wow, it is so refreshing to see him in such high spirits.
It even seems like there may be a brother-bonding session in the near future as, weeks after their public feud, he now says of his relationship with big bro Nick Carter:
“It’s hard to get along when you’re both doing the same thing. I have my own fans, Nick has his own fans. We’re good. Nick and I are good. I love my brother, and we’re good. There’s a lot of love there — don’t get it twisted.”
Well, then! Consider it untwisted.
Cheers to the new-found good vibes! Keep it up, Aaron!!
