To answer the ‘Why Are We Still Talking About This?’ question: Carter was asked about the constant tweeting about the one-time Lizzie McGuire star — his paramour of a decade ago this week. Carter actually replied sensibly (first time for everything!), and noted that he really doesn’t know Duff anymore, so he can’t speak to their possible future reconciliation. He also made the valid point that she is, you know, still married and has a baby and the last thing she wants to be dealing with right now is a guy she kissed a few times when she was 15.
Let’s go to the quote: “If I’m too open about how I feel, then people wanna nag and pick and poke at me,” Carter told Contact Music. “I don’t know Hilary, either. She don’t know me and I don’t know her. I just need to shut up now about it. I think it’s time… She’s got a kid and she’s married and I’m not trying to be that dude. That’s not my intention.”
Here’s hoping he finally takes his own advice and realizes that relationship is… so yesterday. (Couldn’t resist.) Guess that means there won’t be a part two of “I Want Candy” if a Lizzie McGuire reunion ever happens.
