Pop Star Aaron Carter Now Part Owner of Lauderdale Pizza Joint

Slice Pizzeria in downtown Fort Lauderdale has sold a piece of its pie to Aaron Carter. The pop star showed up yesterday afternoon at the restaurant, on SE First Street, to sign autographs for fans. But, um, I'm not sure they did a terrific job promoting it. "We didn't notice anything," said another tenant in that mall, who was not aware that a minicelebrity was in her midst.

As best we can tell, the only promoting the restaurant did was on Aaron Carter's Twitter page.

Hey everyone!! I am here at SLICE!! Come see me while I'm still here, address is in my other tweets see ya soon! Best pizza ever!!!! :)
Slice owner Jack Koussevitzki tells Juice that he and Carter have known each other for years. "He's been here a few times," says Koussevetski. "He loves the pizza. We consummated the deal this week."


For those die-hard fans who missed the appearance, good news: Carter will be back tomorrow at 1. And to his credit, he's grown a thick skin. To wit, Perez Hilton cracked, "A signed copy of his shiteous albums?! We'll take the pizza!"

And then Carter tweeted back:

"I want to thank @perezhilton personaly for the free advertisment on SLICE pizzeria I never expected it So thank u."
