Aaron Carter won’t be getting candy anytime soon.
The 28-year-old is working on his first album in 14 years — and won’t be revisiting any of the hits that made him a household name almost two decades ago.
“I don’t want candy anymore,” Aaron told Star exclusively. “I want gold. I want my girlfriend. I want love. I want different things in life than candy. The dentist told me I need to go other places.”
The ‘Leave It Up To Me’ hit maker has been focusing on making his comeback — but it hasn’t been easy.
He noted that fans come to his shows expecting to hear favorites like “That’s How I Beat Shaq” and “Not Too Young, Not Too Old,” but he won’t be performing them for good reason.
Aaron claims that SONY BMG lost the track to the first hit, and he doesn’t want to go back in time.
“I have a lot to prove and that’s what’s gonna happen,” he explained, noting that his bankruptcy and other issues stopped him from making music over the years.
Now, he released his first single “Fools Gold” from his pending album, LøVë, and doesn’t plan on slowing down until he reaches where he was once before.
“I’m interested in getting back to places like the state fairs and the arenas and all the big places that I’ve done time and time again,” Aaron revealed to Star.
“I’m not here for your nostalgic relief,” he concluded. “That’s not Aaron Carter.”
