The Backstreet Boys member and recovering addict talks about the temptations of touring, a return to reality TV and his new book
Though raised in a destructive household, introduced to fame as preteen and surrounding himself with party people like Paris Hilton, Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter takes full responsibility for his problems.
He says he was naïve, didn’t know what to do during touring downtime, and just “doing like the Russians” while in Russia. He even pokes fun at the title to his 2005 album Never Gone for being inaccurate, because he was “way gone” during much of the recording of it.
But not anymore. Out Sept. 24 by Bird Street Books, Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It is equal parts memoir and self-help book, outlining his battle with alcoholism and drugs, sharing his epiphanies about the reasons – and the repressed memories – that drew him to the substances in the first place.
