AJ McLean is making a name for himself, besides just being a member of the best-selling group, the Backstreet Boys. He has a new single, "Live Together" that focuses on major – yet important – issues that are going on in the world today and when we caught up with the singer about the important message he hopes the song will bring, he shared life lessons from his teenage years that have really stuck with him.
"I would tell my teenage self to be a little more open-minded, be a little more reserved, and not as trusting. I trusted too many people at once who were not the best influence on me. When I was going through my rough patch, I was spending time with people who weren’t keeping me on the right path," he said to TWIST. "I had to learn things on my own, the hard way. Fortunately, I had an angel on my shoulder, or maybe it was just dumb luck, but I was very fortunate. I would just tell my younger self to be weary of those people around you who are just telling you want you want to hear and don’t have your best interests’ in mind."
That is some solid advice!
