In an online chat with fans on MSN, Hilary Duff explained how she crossed over from acting to music. “It was really funny how it came about. Aaron Carter was on my show and I saw him perform and I thought, ‘I can so do that’,” she explained. “I didn’t want to sound like him but I wanted to perform. I told my mom I wanted to be a singer and I started taking classes. Buena Vista/Hollywood Records picked me up and we put out a record.” And speaking of Carter, asked about their on-off romance, Duff said, “I don’t know how many people there are out there on the website but boyfriends and girlfriends can break up and get back together tons all in one hour. (laughs) We’re not dating right now. We’ve both got a lot of stuff going on right now and we’re really good friends and talk on the phone every day. He’s really nice. It’s funny how different he is when he’s not around the people he’s with on a daily basis. He’s just a great guy. We made a pact that even if we broke up we would still be friends.”
