It’s safe to say the best part of Halloween is checking out everyone’s costumes, especially celebrities — they’ve got mountains of money, they dress up for a living, they should really be the best at this, right? Unfortunately, some celebs are blessed with both an overabundance of creativity and a lack of good decision-making skills, and there’s a fine line between really great and successful costumes and weird, played out and awful ones. Between Aaron Carter‘s pimp suit (played out and weird for a 14-year-old) and Perez Hilton‘s interpretation of Lady Gaga (weird and awful) there’s no shortage of odd getups. Here are 20 that probably should have never, ever happened.

We have really sad news to report. Leslie Carter — the 25-year-old sister of Nick and Aaron Carter — died early yesterday in upstate New York. A Carter family representative released a confirmation to Access Hollywood last night, stating, “Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter. We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter. We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.” No other details have been released just yet, so we cannot tell you about the cause of the budding singer’s death.
If you were hoping to tune into Big Morning Buzz Live on VH1 this morning to see Aaron Carter, he has understandably cancelled his appearance so that he can spend time grieving with his family. Our sincere condolences go out to the Carter family during this tragic time.

This is one way of popping up on the collective radar. Aaron Carter has checked into a rehab center in South California, reportedly, “to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with.” The news came to E! by way of a source who revealed, “He was struggling recently and needed this.” The last time Aaron was in the news was while he was on Dancing With The Stars.
Carter’s manager Johnny Wright confirmed the story and gave a little background on the situation saying, “Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top, requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with. Therefore he has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needsÃ‚Â that will help him on the music journey he’s about to take…”
Carter seems upbeat and positive while getting treatment posting messages on his Twitter account like, “The main thing in life is not to be afraid of being human.” We’re still not sure exactly what those issues are, but if he’s having a hard enough time to voluntarily check into rehab, we wish him luck in sorting them out.
Almost a decade ago, lil’ Aaron Carter was in a Disney love triangle with Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan. Now Aaron is going off to OK! Magazine about how much Lindsay deserves that SCRAM bracelet. “They are going to make an example of you now, Lindsay, and you deserve it. You don’t get in the car with two people and go chasing after your assistant going a hundred miles an hour down PCH. I don’t know what to say about it anymore. I’m pissed!” Not that he’s had a chance to tell her. “I haven’t gotten a chance to talk to her because she knows that if I did, I’m the only one who would be real because her to everybody else [is], ‘Oh, Lindsay! You’re a star!’ Not me. I’ve been doing it my whole life, sweetheart. I don’t need you. There were times when you needed me, so don’t forget that.” No word on how many times he snapped his fingers during this rant, but we count at least five potential opportunities.
Though Carter now claims to be healthy, clean and living in Miami, some of his statements don’t exactly a sober mindset. For one thing, he’d really like to hook Lindsay back up with everyone’s favorite deadbeat dad, Michael Lohan. “Michael Lohan is a very good man. He was thrown under the bus very bad by that family. It takes a man to keep a family strong sometimes.” We’re also a little skeeved by how he likes to remember Lindsay. “She used to stand outside the gates of my concerts to get in and I would let her in when we were dating—when the only thing she did was Parent Trap. 30,000 girls outside my concerts and she was in the front, waiting to get in.” Nothing creepy about a 22-year-old crowing about how a preteen ex used to wait for him. Nothing creepy about that at all.
