Nick Carter is Full of Shit

(Source) He struggled with addiction for years and now  Nick Carter has revealed his troubles began at the tender age of two. 

In his new autobiography, the Backstreet Boys  singer opens up about his parents’ dependence on alcohol which he believes led  to his addiction first to drinking and later drugs including cocaine, Ecstasy,  and prescription painkillers.

In new excerpts from the tome, titled Facing  the Music and Living to Talk About It, obtained by RadarOnline, Nick recounts a story which saw him trying  alcohol for the first time when he was still crawling at the bar below his parents’ apartment.

‘Family legend has it that when I was  two  years old, I crawled into one of the Yankee Rebel’s liquor storage  rooms where  I was caught drinking for the first time,’ he recounts. ‘My  parents always  laughed at that. I laughed too, for a while, and then I  didn’t laugh  at it anymore.’

Nick claims his mother and father also drank  heavily, which he  believes was caused by money worries and says he started  drinking himself when he was still a teenager.”

Bad influence: Nick Carter brands ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton a 'bad influence' as he recounts his 10 years of drug and alcohol addiction in a new memoir titled, Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It

Is there anything in the world less authentic than a celebrity autobiography? At least 80s stars drug problems were believable. Robert Downey Jr. tried marijuana at the age of 12. I can believe that. Tim Allen sold coke in his 20s. Very believable. Nick Carter started drinking at the age of 2? Not so much. You know what happens to a baby who drinks at 2 years old? They die. They don’t go on to become fantastic singers in an underrated boy band. What’s next? He was a world class juggler at 14 months? He won the Tour De France when he was 3? Yes you’re trying to sell copies of your book, but come up with a better story than that. After all, every alcoholic/drug addict from the late 90’s through the mid 2000s already has a built-in excuse: they drilled Paris Hilton.
