Unlike the boy bands and girl groups that emerged in the late 1990s, singer and rapper Aaron Carter was a one-man pop music machine. His brand of bubblegum charm mixed with suburban hip-hop swagger catapulted Carter to the top of the charts with his debut album, Aaron Carter (1998), and the triple platinum-selling Aaron's Party (Come Get It) (2000). Carter boosted his career by acting on "7th Heaven" (WB, 1996-2006; CW, 2006-07), where he played main character Ruthie Camden's love interest, but it was his wild party boy behavior that made headlines. The singer dated Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan at the same time, sparking a feud between the teen queens. Carter's erratic and careless lifestyle led to his 2008 arrest for speeding and drug possession; a move which almost cost him his career and his life. In 2009, Carter made a triumphant comeback to the spotlight when he competed in the ninth season of "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ), shedding his party boy image and reclaiming his glory days as one of his generation's most beloved teen idols.
