McIver candidly said, "It's hard when you've been blessed to have success at a young age, and then you wake up at 18 and no one cares anymore."   

McIver is now focusing on a singing career. He's just made his very first music video called, "I Wish I Didn't Need You," and he has no regrets about his new job as a go-go guy.

Laughing, McIver stated, "There's no shame to getting paid to dance around in your underwear."
