What's Up with Everyone?

The World According To Aaron: 

 Aaron Carter firmly believes the record company can best be compared to a clever little system known as the food chain. The fans at the top, media savvy and ready to either embrace you or throw you to the lions, Aaron believes that a lot of media big wigs underestimate the power of the people. Sitting on the astroturf in the practice bubble of Giant's Stadium, Aaron reflects on the importance of the fans(besides the fact that they pay his bills).

"Fans are the most important thing to me, " explains Aaron," I think a lot of people at labels put fans aside and think press is more important than the fans...but, press IS the fans. If I had to choose between an interview with 'People Magazine' or a signing with fans, I'd take the signing with the fans without even thinking about it. " For being 14 years old, Aaron sounds wise beyond his years.

Speaking of a new album, Aaron's success with his previous efforts have ensured him main stream success, and this upcoming album should fair no differently. Aaron has plans to devise his final track list of surefire fan favorites. How will he do this, you ask? Why, by getting his fans to pick those very tracks themselves!

Genius, I know.

"What I really wanna do," says Aaron, "is just take the 20 or so tracks that I've recorded and put them on my site and just have the fans pick and choose what they want. Sort of get back to a more interactive thing, I guess. I want this new album to be something the fans really love."

Aaron's new album, tentatively scheduled for release on August 20th, will be titled "Not Another Earthquake," the name representing how the boy wonder is back to shake up the music industry. Collaborating with writers and producers and trying his hand at writing this time around, Aaron explains why he's slightly hesitant to become a one man show where writing and producing new material is concerned.

"Well I mean, I will always have people helping me out with writing and producing, ya know? Producers are there to do a job, and they do their thing like no one else, so I don't think that right now I'll be trying to do all the producing or writing."

Aaron will be going out on tour to support this new album, but fans, there is a catch---Aaron is touring ala Nsync and Britney style, playing his new material before it's released to the general public, taking his new music live one city at a time.

Also deciding to harness his star power to raise awareness on issues that are important to him, Aaron's decided to start his own charity benefiting cerebral palsy, a disease that hit close to home when he learned someone on his road crew was affected.

"It's good to make a difference, and it's good to help people, " says Aaron thoughtfully. " I mean, I'm the type of person who would do anything to help anyone, I'd give an arm and a leg to someone if I thought it'd help them lead a better life. I'm definitely planning on doing events like football games and basketball games to try and raise money for this cause, or even just try to get the fans to learn more about what's going on with cerebral palsy, ya know?"

With Aaron's hordes of fans, I don't think that will be hard to accomplish.

After working on new material for an album, sharing philosophies on the music industry, and sharing his plans to make the world a better place, Aaron also mentions something that he's been striving to achieve for the last 14 years: being cool.

"I just try to blend in and act like everyone else. I'm really into dirt biking," says Aaron with a lopsided grin, "and I love when I break a leg or something doing dirt biking, because I can just go up to people and be like 'Yeah, ya know, I was dirt biking on this huge hill, and I just fell and broke my leg. It was so dangerous.' Because, how can you not be cool when you're pulling a stunt like that?"

Oh, Aaron.

Fond du Lac, WI -- Mercury Racing powered 'Nick Carter Racing' won the Super Vee contest at the 'Cape Cod Rendezvous,' June 8-9, in Yarmouth, Mass. Driver Bob Carter and throttleman Lee Murray averaged 61.10 mph to win the event. The race was round three of the 2002 APBA Offshore Pro Series presented by Mercury Racing. Unseasonable cool weather with heavy rains and high winds forced race officials to run the race on a "storm course" which still produced 8-10 foot seas. Several boats sustained structural hull damage due to the rough conditions. 'Media Master' and 'Phonix Waste' rounded out 2-3 in Super Vee. Both 'Nick Carter Racing' and 'Media Master' are powered by twin Mercury Racing Super Vee race engines coupled to Mercury Racing Dry-Sump Six Drives/Lab FinishedTM propellers

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter Preparing To Release Solo Album:
  Backstreet Boy Nick Carter will be the first member of the multiplatinum group to release a solo album on Jive Records this fall. Carter told LAUNCH that while a firm release date has not been set, he expects the album to be released this September.
"Right now I've been in the studio, and I've got, like, over 30 songs recorded," he said. "And they are thinking about a single in a couple of months, and the album later on this year--maybe late September".
   The 22-year-old singer added that the album will feature a combinatin of both pop and rock songs. "Of course, I can't stray too far from what I've done, so I'm stuck with that. And I've added a new element of which I've loved since I wa a little baby: rock music. So, I had to add a little bit of rock with it. It's going to be interesting to see how the public accepts it, but at the same time I'm very happy with what I'm doing personally, so it's going to be cool," he said.
   Carter also wanted to dispel any rumors about his solo career marking the beginning of the end for the Backstreet Boys (news-website). "We are not breaking up. I mean, everybody's all, like worried: 'Nick's doing this anf the Backstreet Boys are over,' and all this stuff. I mean, you know, I've been in the group for 10 years, since I was 12, so I mean, I'm 22 now and I really want to try something new," he explained. "That''s basically what I'm doing. Sometimes you can;t make everybody happy--that's the one thing I've learnedin life--but the guys are supporting me, so that's good."
   Carter performed with his younger brother Aaron Carter at the New York radio station Z100's Zootopia 2002 concert at Giant Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday (June 2).
Nick Carter on BSB Breakup Rumors:
  When a cryptic posting appeared on the Backstreet Boys' offical website recently, fans were confused about whether the "hiatus" the group was said to be on was actually another way to say "breakup".
   We went straight to the sourse and checked in with Nick Carter backstage Sunday at Zootopia, a music festival sponsored by New York radio station Z-100.
    "We're not breaking up." the group's resident hottie said. "Everybody's all like worried---"Nick's doing this and the Backstreet Boys are over, --and all this stuff. Imean, I'm 22 and I really (want to) try something new. That's basically what I'm doing. Sometimes you can't make everybody happy; that's the one thing I've learned in life. The guys are supporting me, so that's good."
     Nick said the release date for his first solo album isn't set in stone, but fans can expect it to be in stores "maybe late September".

Nick's secret visit to Sweeden?
   The Backstreet Star arrived yesterday (6/4) and spent the day in bed at the hotel in Stockholm.
   "It's nice to be back in Sweeden again," he said when Aftonbladet met up with him outsice the hotel.
    Tonight it's time for the worldwide superstar to go out in Stockholm's nightlife again. And then, seems like anything could happen.
    Two months ago, his night out at Cafe' Opera got an abrupt ending when he got into a fight with his friend/bodyguard. They started yelling at each other and suddenly Nick punched his friend hard in the face.
     Nick Carter was in Stockholm to meet songwriters and producers, and to record for his upcoming solo album.
      He styed for a week. Sources to Aftonbladet are saying that this time, he's supposed to stay just as long, if not longer, even 2 weeks.
       Things are very secret around who Nick Carter is working with in Stockholm. The Backstreet Boy has worked with, for example Max Martin in the Cherion Studios before.
      But this time it looks like Nick is working in the "La Carr Studio" with Douglas Carr amongst other people, who earlier worked with Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, and Ace of Base.

    The event marked the debut of Carter's 40-foot, 130-mph Super Vee-class boat, which had never been tested in open- water competion. " I didn't expect we would do so well," Carter said. "I would have been happy just to place."
     Carter started the team in February so his father, Bob, could pilot the boat in races. Bob Carter let Key West chiropractor Steve Oropeza take the helm Sunday while fellow Key West resident Lee Murray handled the throttles.
     Nick Carter also announced that he was "seriously thinking" about buying another race boat and running it himself. " I've really gotten into the sport. I'll start off in one of the smaller classes, learn all I can." Nick Carter said.
     The Carter family lives in the Florida Keys. They were introduced to high-speed powerboat racing during last November's Offshore World Championships in Key West.
