** "Aaron's Party" has lines about how "Mom and dad, they be gettin' on my nerves." Hilariously corny, sure, but knowing how violent his parents were with him, it comes off as an understatement.
** All the lighthearted banter he has with his brother Nick on "Oh, Aaron" is significantly more uncomfortable once you watch ''House Of Carters'' and see just how volatile their actual relationship is.

** Like most everything that fell into the "kid empowerment" trend of the 90s and early 2000s, his faux bad boy persona was considered at best laughably uncool and at worst annoying. Songs like "Not To Young, Not Too Old" also drew attention to his age, making them harder to enjoy as an adult.
** The line "Mom and dad, they be gettin' on my nerves" from "Aaron's Party" has reached near-memetic status for perfectly summing up everything hilariously corny about his music. And as mentioned above, it's even more awkward knowing his relationship to his ''actual'' parents.

** As far as [[PissTakeRap white rappers go]], he was no Music/{{Eminem}}. It's hard to imagine his brother Nick being able to say "I want you to rap!" on "Oh, Aaron" with a straight face.

* ValuesDissonance: Any of the songs he recorded in his adolescence which depict him as a ladies man or macking on cute girls would not be made today, when any form of sexualization in children is treated with the utmost scrutiny.

* TearJerker: Buckle up because he's got too many of these for one person to bare, in no particular order.
** He was thrust into the music business at such a young age because his mother wanted to capitalize on him being a kid/teen idol because she'd previously helped his brother, Nick, become part of the Backstreet Boys, but he wouldn't let her be his manager. She then negotiated his contract so that she was the sole earner of his money from the years she was his manager. This also caused him to file for bankruptcy in 2013, as the debt he accrued up to that point was amassed when he was at the height of his career years prior and he didn't have the money to pay the debt at the time.
** He had gotten involved with some drugs since his sister Leslie died, which he knows isn't good for him, so he's tried to get off of them.
** He got on such a rigorous tour schedule from 2013-2017 that caused him to not sleep correctly, which caused him to develop anxiety and tendencies which are typically associated with drug addicts, which also caused internet trolls to harass him on social media, thus leading to more anxiety from him, thus led to a turn that caused him to lose weight and look "shockingly gaunt," as it's been put, which led to him going on the reality show, ''The Doctors'' to get healthy and subsequently checked into a rehab facility to do so, for which he's seemingly doing a lot better.
** He also got checked out on the show for various diseases to rule out that it's any of those that caused him to lose the weight he did, such as HIV or AIDS, as he's bisexual and has admitted to not always being safe sexually with who he's been with.
** Some time before his father died, he tried to force Aaron to write him a check to apparently fuel his drug habits, even holding him at gunpoint and threatening him by having Aaron lie on the ground, put the gun next to his head, and fired it into the ground next to him, which caused Aaron to lose the ability to hear in that ear.
** His downward spiral caused him to be ostracized from several members of his family, most notably most of his siblings.
** His parents divorced when he was still relatively young.
** A malfunction with a car he was in on the morning of September 11, 2001 in New York City caused him to witness the plane that flew into the World Trade Center as it happened, resulting in a fear of flying at the age of 13.
** His older brother Nick has treated him like utter garbage in recent years by making fun of Aaron's drug habits and even sending him a news article about Music/WhitneyHouston's death after it happened, saying he'll be next after her.
*** With all of these known, you just wanna give the guy a big hug and you wonder how he's been able to survive with all of this weighing down on him.
