Jaren MacArthur[3][4] is a character in the series American Dragon: Jake Long. He is a renowned teen pop star that most girls woo over. He makes a brief appearance on TV[5], and is officially seen in person later on[6]. He never makes another appearance throughout the series.

Physical Appearance

Jaren is a young boy with short blond hair that he styles with hair gel. He wears a blue A-shirt with a red arrow pointing upwards over a regular orange shirt, a gray pair of khaki pants, and blue shoes. He is seen once in his underwear, which is neon green with purple polka dots, he also wears knee-length socks with two orange stripes at the end of them. His upper body may have a bit of a muscular build, as seen when he was in his underwear.


In his very short appearance more than halfway through[6], Jaren appears to be quite an egotistical young man as he turns into a wreck after he realizes that his pants and hair gel were stolen from him and cries out in agony while exhibiting himself in his underwear on the streets. Because of this dilemma, it is mentioned that he may not be able to summon enough courage to take the stage as scheduled.

Hip Hop Career

Jaren is a teen pop star that many teenage girls obsess over, including Rose and her friend Courtney. One of his biggest hit singles is called Girls, Don't Be Trippin'. He planned to have a concert at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City[6], although it is unknown if he actually did his how after his pants and hair gel were stolen.

Jaren also participated in the 3rd Annual Hip-Hop Video Awards with his hit single Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby, although this is only mentioned and never actually seen[5].

  • (in his underpants after his pants and Tub-o-Hairgel were stolen) "Why, yo? WHY?!"
