You might just about remember who Lil Aaron Carter was if you’re (un) lucky. He was the brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and had a pop career that lasted all of about five seconds at the turn of the millennium. He was kind of like an early prototype of Justin Bieber, only without the talent.
Here’s one of his songs:

Yikes. I hope you didn’t spend longer than you needed to listening to that.
Anyway, Lil’ Aaron Carter isn’t so lil’ anymore and jut goes by the name of Aaron Carter and isn’t really in the public eye that much, although for some reason he still has a Twitter account that people follow. Like many people, he also uses his Twitter account to talk absolute garbage, as he did at the weekend when he decided to compare himself to Michael Jackson.
Here’s what Aaron had to say, in tweets that have sadly been deleted and nobody seems to have screenshots of:
Remember one very important thing. Michael passed down the torch to me. I never had to ask for him to do that.
No he compared himself to me. I knew Michael VERY well and spent lots of time with him. Just stop right there.
And why can’t I have idols and mentors Michael invited me personally to sing with him and Luther Vandross and BeyoncÃ© like stfu people jeez.
Er what? Even if I clarify that the last two comments were after people had called him out on the first one, none of that really makes any sense at all does it. Fortunately, Aaron posted the following tweet on Monday to explain just what he was talking about:
Enough with the negativity and hate people come on. Like enough you guys are wetting the torch not me. pic.twitter.com/hVHzRK6Oop

Well. Glad that’s all cleared up then – it all makes perfect sense now. Thanks for intellectually explaining it Aaron, you’re a real champ.
If you want to know why Michael Jackson passing the torch to Aaron Carter is a completely ridiculous idea, then check out this incredible version of Jackson beatboxing ‘Beat It‘. Like Aaron Carter could ever do anything like that.
