Nick Carter confesses performing has been rough since his sisters death. Hey everyone this is Ani Esmailian for Stereotude. Nick Carter confesses his sisters untimely death has been really rough on him. He's been struggling with her death and had a hard time getting back into the groove of things. He says, "It was definitely tough. For me (performing) was cathartic, it's a way for me to get through my emotions. I've always used singing and performing as my outlet to really help me. It was only natural for me to do that in this situation to get through it." Nick's sister had a reported prescription drug overdose earlier this year.
