Popstar is a 2005 American film directed by Richard Gabai and written by Timothy Barton. The direct-to-video film features teen singer Aaron Carter in his only lead role in a feature film. The premiere was held in The Woodlands, Texas. Popstar was filmed in Calabasas, California, at A.C. Stelle Middle School and the Commons.


Jane Brighton [Alana Austin] is a high school math whiz obsessed with J.D. McQueen [Aaron Carter], a teen music sensation whose parents have sent him back to public high school to improve his declining grades. J.D. risks missing a critical summer tour that could ruin his musical career. To get help with math, he builds a relationship with Jane.


Former 1970s teen idols David Cassidy and Leif Garrett appear in supporting roles as J.D.'s manager and a philosophical janitor. Other famous actors appearing in the film are Andrew Stevens, Tracy Scoggins, Natalia Livingston, Tom Bosley and Stella Stevens. Former Backstreet Boys and NSYNC manager, Lou Pearlman appears in an uncredited cameo at the end of the film.


The Popstar soundtrack was released October 18, 2005, and features Carter in "Saturday Night" (live), "Enuff Of Me", "I Want Candy" (live), "One Better" (live), and "Do You Remember" (live).
