He defended the musician following the documentary's release

Following the release of Leaving Neverland, the HBO documentary that details Michael Jackson's alleged child abuse, Aaron Carter defended the musician in a TMZ video, saying that he doesn't believe Jackson's accusers "based on [his] experience."

Carter references the good times he had with Jackson when he was still alive, as if his positive experience disproves the accusations of Wade Robson and James Safechuck. "I remember having the time of my life with Michael," he says. "I was about 15 years old and I remember him just sitting down with me being like, you know, 'This is kind of what you gotta do, Aaron, with your future. Be focused, stay driven, always be a perfectionist.'"

He says that he may have actually believed the accusations if they had been brought up when Jackson was still alive. "You're a grown man and when Michael Jackson is alive, you are backing him, you are up his ass, you're kissing his ass, you are there to testify for him under oath. And then when he dies, you decide that that's a good time to come out?" Carter says. "No. What you're doing is actually stomping on an icon and a legend's grave. You're stomping on his grave... I just feel like, why not do it when he was alive, man?"

He is visibly angry about the accusations made by Robson and Safechuck, who claimed in the documentary that Jackson groomed them and forced them into sexual acts when they were young children. At one point in the interview, he expresses that he's "disappointed" in Robson, who is a dancer and choreographer, and says that, if he didn't "have something to lose," he would "punch [him] in [his] face."

Carter also admitted that he stayed in Neverland and slept in Jackson's bedroom when he was 15 years old, though, it appears, he doesn't seem to understand how creepy it was that he was sleeping in the same room as a much older, more famous man.


We talked with the "1950" singer on her new collaboration with Mark Ronson for 'Late Night Feelings'

Today, Mark Ronson releases his debut full-length album Late Night Feelings, and it's packed with stellar female vocalists straddling all genres, from Camilla Cabello to Alicia Keys to Angel Olsen to our favorite star-on-the-rise, King Princess. During this past weekend at Bonnaroo, I had the chance to pick KP's brain about their collab, "Pieces of Us," ahead of its release.

"We're real humans at the end of the day"

Twenty-two-year-old Lauren Jauregui is part of a generation that grew up in a world where social media was a given. But social media platforms would play a particularly significant role in her life once she became a public figure at the age of 16, first as a strong competitor on the televised talent show X-Factor, and then as a member of a little girl group you may have heard of: Fifth Harmony. Jauregui's seen the good side of social media, like building relationships with fans and spreading positivity; but, she's also experienced what happens when cancel culture takes hold, and online bullying becomes a real problem.

"Need" is maybe not the right word, but we want to hear Lana sing all these songs

Today is Lana Del Rey's birthday; it's the Summer Solstice, the start of Cancer season (oh, did you also think Lana was a Gemini?), and the astrological Cusp of Magic. Quite a day, when you think about it. And, like, I think about it a lot, because it's, um, also my birthday.

She's Barbie, and he's Ken

The first day of summer has brought new music from some of my favorite rappers. Gucci Mane and Trina debuted new albums. And my problematic fave, Nicki Minaj, dropped her anticipated single "Megatron." It's a smooth, reggae-inspired track that makes sense of the colorful jungle imagery she used on its cover. It's also a strong, defiant declaration of love for her boyfriend Kenneth Petty.

This is hilarious

Rihanna and Seth Meyers got beautifully, messily drunk for last night's episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, and it's everything you'd hope it is and more. More than a few drinks in, Meyers requested that Rihanna give him a makeover using Fenty Beauty products, and the results are, well... drunk.
