Aaron Carter is set to join the upcoming staging of “Naked Boys Singing!” a 60-minute gay musical revue featuring an all-male cast performing nude, at the Jewel Box Theatre in Las Vegas, Nevada, starting Sept. 8.
Former child star and pop sensation Carter, now 33, is no stranger to going naked for his audience. As a matter of fact, he has an OnlyFans account that he started more than a year ago.
“I think the naked body is a beautiful thing. We were all born naked. I love doing OnlyFans,” Carter, who identifies himself as bisexual, said in a Variety exclusive with Marc Malkin. I’ve been an OnlyFans model for over a year now, and people are very uplifting.”
“They make you feel attractive and good about yourself. I love that social media platform more than any other platform. It’s not about the money. It’s about the fans,” he added.
Despite being partially in the business of getting naked, Carter admitted in an interview with Broadway World that he was never comfortable with his body. “I suffer from body dysmorphia,” he said at his Los Angeles home.
Body dysmorphia, also known as body dysmorphic disorder, is a mental health condition where a sufferer spends a lot of time being concerned about physical flaws. “I’ve never felt more comfortable with my body than I do now,” Carter added.
With his upcoming participation in “Naked Boys Singing!” where handsome male performers will sing and do comedy sketches with no costumes, not even underwear, his fans would not only have the opportunity to see him naked in person but he himself would also have the chance to further overcome personal challenges.
“I’m so excited to enter the theater world again in Naked Boys Singing! I look forward to having a great time and being a part of Vegas reopening!” Carter continued.
Performing (not only in nude) has been running through Carter’s veins ever since. He rose in the late 1990s and early 2000s as a teen heartthrob with his second studio album “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” becoming certified 3x platinum. He also had collaborations with other musical artists, including his brother Nick Carter and the Backstreet Boys.
Carter made his Broadway debut in the musical comedy “Seussical,” which was followed by a successful run in off-Broadway production “The Fantasticks.”
Outside entertainment, he recently started his own cannabis business. In March, he and his fiancee Melanie Martin announced that they’re expecting a baby.
Created in 1998 by Robert Schrock and a team of 12 writers, “Naked Boys Singing!” premiered in Los Angeles and has continued running in theaters across the U.S. and around the world.
While it was originally marketed to gay men, the show now has a diverse audience, with a film adaptation hitting the silver screen in 2007.
“Naked Boys Singing!” will be presented by Tom D’Angora and Nick Padgett and directed by Tom and Michael D’Angora. The show will run from Sept. 8 until Nov. 28.
