Aaron Carter has clarified comments he made last summer about his attraction to both men and women that he believes were “misconstrued.”

The “I Want Candy” singer, 30, revealed in August that he’d been attracted to both genders since he was 13, and had had a sexual encounter with a man at age 17.

But now, he says, he’s certain he’ll settle down with a woman.

“It was more so just a story that happened when I was like, 17 with somebody. And I can find men and women attractive, but when it comes down to it, I think it was a little misconstrued,” he told the Hollywood Life podcast of sharing his encounter.

“I see myself being with a woman and having kids. I want to have a family. I keep telling people that. I don’t want it to be misconstrued too much just because I was open about a story.”

Carter first shared his history on Twitter, and said he was lifting a “weight and burden” that he’d held onto for a long time.

“After a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with,” he wrote.

The singer — who was in a high-profile love triangle with Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan as a teen — elaborated on the story shortly after, saying his decision to date men or women was entirely his choice.

“Whether I should be with a woman or a man is my decision, no one else’s,” he said, adding that he had been thinking about sharing the story “for years.”

“I just felt like it was something I needed to do,” he said. “It was something that I just felt like was important and I needed to say. It was a part of a new chapter of turning 30.”
