    Everyone's saying how together Lance is – as far as I can tell the only one who isn't wasn't in either band. Aaron is the only one who feels and sounds and looks totally broken. All the rest of the guys sound like normal dudes.

    Damn I grew up in Florida and now I know all those modeling shows I was in at the mall were just free labor, and I didn’t even get to keep the clothes 😂 also I was constantly trying to get slimed/picked for shows at universal so I could be on tv

    kids… that noise is a landline telephone ☎️ that is off the hook. Yes, they still exist.

    📝 Landline Telephone doesn’t use any electricity. So… it still works even if there’s a power outage.

    Lance was always my favorite. I had the biggest crush on him. This was prior to Lance coming out. My friends somehow knew he was gay though. I dont know. He was just the one that was my favorite. He still looks great too.
    📝 How cute is Lance’s Mom?!?

    I still remember TRL. Each weekday, it was either BSB or Nsnyc that was #1 followed by the other at #2

    Watching this an hour in, I've come away with two major points. Aaron Carter for sure was touched by Lou Pearlman and clearly was using during the time of this recording. Lastly Brian Littrell was always my husband I'm proud he had the cojones to stand up to Lou.

    Reminds me of the current president of the United States … The Consummate Conman. And half a nation is under his spell because they’re ignorant, fearful and racist.

    Aaron needs some serious therapy, he's got some serious problems! I don't know if it's the drugs or what happened to him as a child

    Wow, ya lo había visto, pero esto realmente de deja el estómago vacío: el dinero siempre es el mismo, sólo se mueve de un lugar a otro y mientras alguien tenga mucho, siempre viene de quien menos te lo esperas y de quien más lo necesita… qué ser tan alejado de humanidad puede estafar a quienes han trabajado por años para conseguirlo… es cruel.

    I would never trust a blimp with a necktie

    never ever sign any contract without at least one entertainment attorney taking a look at it
    That's why these creeps prey on children…if you think this whole scenario is the exception to the rule you are wrong this is very commonplace

    56:30 the Latino George Clooney
    Lou is an expert at push-ups😃😄😜🤨 apparently
    many young songwriters go to Nashville with their folder of songs and they end up missing
    Their songs aren't missing but they are😈👿

    Another great documentary on Lou Pearlman is The Boyband Scam : Backstreet Boys and ‘NSync that explores the pedophelia angle

    Apparently something really tragic happened to Aaron Carter by this Pearlman character. His behaviour is so irrational.

    I'm so naive. It wasn't until I saw this that I realized why Aaron Carter is so screwed up. Poor guy. You always think its the drugs that make people so messed up but its actually the things that have happened to them (they are just self-medicating with the drugs) that really screwed them up. Lou may have stoled a lot of peoples' money but he stole Aarons life.
