This pic has something for everyone!
If you're really into drummers, there's some dude named Petey Pete — if you're really into Aaron Carter, he's not wearing a shirt! Oh, and if you're into cuuuuUUUUuute puppies, Aaron's dog King is there too!
We're so glad this pic popped up on Instagram, because we haven't heard much from the little Carter since his recent music announcements! And, now we see he's been spending all his time working out, looking fresh to death! HellOOOO abs!
Looks like he's doing well, and we can't wait to hear more new stuff!

The former teenage heartthrob and the basketball legend starred in the clip, That's How I Beat Shaq back in 2001, and after 12 years — Shaq wants revenge on AC.
However, now that Carter is 25, we were thinking… maybe the 7-footer wouldn't have a chance against Aaron, considering that he lost to him when he was just a kid, but Shaq is NOT going out like that.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to watch the hooper finally defeat the singer!!
Annnnd…just in case you've never seen Carter's That's How I Beat Shaq video, check it out AFTER THE JUMP!!!!
He had checked into rehab to ground himself and work through a few issues so he would be ready for the new career challenges that lie ahead of him.
Said his representative:
"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 needs that will help him on the music journey he's about to take."
That is SOO smart! So many celebrities push themselves too hard and don’t take the time to make sure that they are doing well mentally and physically before taking on new challenges, and that can result and stress and bad decisions.

Aaron’s manager says that the decision was not influenced by a court ruling:
"Several months ago Aaron came to me to help him return to music and to restart his career. He has been in Orlando working on a new album and perfecting his live show and his physical body. 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 needs that will help him on the music journey he's about to take. He asks that everyone keep him in their prayers and that they respect his privacy at this time."
Aaron has continued to tweet to fans while in rehab, and it sounds like he’s staying upbeat:
"Life Has Its up's & Downs, You Can Only Live & Learn. Never Lose Faith!! & Always Believe In Yourself! As I Am learning To Do Every day."
We’re glad he’s in rehab! Get better, bb!!
