Aaron Carter claims he was ‘misconstrued’ over coming out as bisexual
Aaron Carter has clarified his comments about coming out as bisexual.
Carter, known for tracks like Aaron’s Party, spoke about growing up in the entertainment industry while discovering his sexuality in a heartfelt Facebook post last summer.
The ’90s kid pop singer revealed that he was attracted to both men and women in the emotional post.
Just a day after the post, reps confirmed that he had split from girlfriend of one year, Madison Parker.
In a recent interview, Carter put to rest the speculation about his bisexuality and what that meant for his future dating plans.
Speaking to HollywoodLife, the singer said whilst he finds both men and women attractive, he plans to settle down with a woman.
“I can find men and women attractive, but when it comes down to it, I think it was a little misconstrued,” he said.
“I see myself being with a woman and having kids. I want to have a family.”
Carter has previously spoken out about this, telling TMZ: “When it comes down to it, really, I had an experience when I was 17 with a guy, but now as an almost 30-year-old man, I’m going to be pursuing relationships with women.”
However, the pop star has said that he ‘doesn’t have a problem’ with having a relationship with a man.
“Who know what the future has to bring, whether it’s a relationship with a guy, I don’t have a problem with that,” he said on the LGBTQ&A podcast last year.

Carter also revealed on the podcast that he was still dealing with some confusion as being part of the community still feels “new”.
“I’m just still confused about it… about bisexuality,” he added.
“I definitely embrace my bisexuality and, you know, it’s still new to me.”
Carter, born in 1987, established his stardom at the age of seven and released his first self-titled album at the age of 10 in 1997.
His second of four studio albums, Aaron’s Party (Come Get it) was released three years later in 2000 and sold three million copies in the US alone.
