“When I am on stage performing my single, I am thinking about all the girls who are my friends more than anything and are truly ‘Beautiful Souls’.”

“I’m not a phony-friendly guy and I’m usually very quiet and not a big laugher, so some people might take that for rudeness and being mean. If anyone ever got that impression, I apologize. I love all my fans and really appreciate all their support!”

“When I’m singing, that’s all me. That’s from the bottom of my heart -it’s everything I’ve worked for. When you’re on stage, there are no guidelines. No one’s telling me what to do!”

“I want to go to the top. This business is my life. I’m in for the ride.”

“Bradin is a character that I created. As much as he seems like me, he is very much different. When you’re acting, you’re given material and you create what you do with it, but you have to stay within the guidelines.”

“The eyes don’t lie. There’s something that goes on with the eyes and the sincerity of the person. Luckily I have that knack, which is good because that stuff happens in the business.”

“My music has a blue-eyed soul sound to it. I grew up listening to James Taylor on our family road trips. He’s unbelievable.”

“I had a kissing scene on the first episode of Summerland. I thought it would be weird, but it wasn’t too bad. The crew has seen it a million times. Plus, I feel very comfortable with everyone onset. It was harder on Kay, who plays my younger sister on the show. She was only 13 and had her first kiss in front of the camera. Doing it on your own is nerve-racking enough!”

“I went to this dance with some of my friends and there were kids saying ‘I know who you are – you’re Aaron Carter!’ It doesn’t bother me if people confuse us. I know we’re very different. I am who I am.”

“I don’t wanna say I have a temper…but I do! I kind of sulk and sit there when I’m bitter. I won’t show you, but you can see it. Probably if you bring me Godiva chocolate, I’ll be your friend again!”

“I have a hard time waking up. No alarm clock works! It sounds childish, but I seriously have my manager, my mom or a buddy of mine wake me up if I have to be somewhere. It’s a serious issue! I’ve been very late for some serious gigs because of it!”

“I’m giving them all that I have and if that’s not enough, then sorry, I’m out of the game. I’ll do my own thing-I’ll make movies, I’ll direct, I’ll go to college. I’ll do this as long as I can and as successfully as I can with a lot of joy and pride!”

When asked ‘Do you feel pressure to live up to everyone’s expectations’: “Yes, I am a normal teenager…just one that works in the professional world.”

“I just got a house a few months ago and the upstairs is being done, which is like where I’m gonna be staying, living most of the time. There’s two different entrances. I’ll have my own privacy – my own space. Kind of be on my own but not too far from home. My family is gonna be moving out probably at the end of the year.”

“It’s very flattering to be considered a heartthrob. I’m trying not to let it go to my head.”

“I have the best family in the world.”

(On “Harry Potter”) “I haven’t read any of the books, but I’ve seen a couple of the films. I got a chance to meet Emma Watson, who is growing up. And she’s cute man. She’s so cute, she’s got the little accent. She’s a cutie.”

“I’d love to play a role like Leonardo [DiCaprio] in Basketball Diaries, probably one of his greatest pieces. I’d love to do a really dramatic role.”

(On his “She’s No You” video shoot) “We shot in SoHo, so it was a really cool vibe. The video took place at night, so we started shooting at 6:00 p.m. and shot all night. I was nocturnal for three days.

(On his most embarrassing moment) “I was on tour with Dream Street, and I had on these really heavy pants with drawstrings. I would always tie them really tight and do a last check before the lights came up. But once, the string broke, and my pants went straight to my ankles. I was standing on stage in front of a whole crowd in my underwear.”

“In Taiwan the fans were very kind… Everything I said, they listened to. They were really interested. They wanted to understand what I was saying. But they also sat down at the concert. You’ll never see that here in America.”

“I am not a big magic fan at all. I don’t believe in tarot cards or any of that stuff. It’s all myth!”

“There’s something romantic about ferris wheels.”

“Every time I fly in an airplane, I get sick. It kind of freaks me out.”

“It’s hard to get over a back stabbing friend, but you have to talk about it and confront the person.”

“I used to have six left feet. Now I only have one and a half left feet.”

“I love a girl that can make me laugh. I am not really a laugh-at-things type of guy and I don’t smile and laugh all the time… But if a girl can make me laugh… I’m in love!!!!”

“Music is my way of getting away from everything. It means a lot to me.”

“I like to smile when its natural. I’m not mad or anything. That’s my style.”
