After Effects Freezes up when I try to import an .mp3 file (I've tried multiple) ASlso I noticed that when I try to import audio, it tries to import it as a footage item, and there's no option to change it to just audio. Thanks all

Which is correct. Audio files are AV items. What operating system are you on and where do those MP3s come from? Perhaps they are DRM-protected, have variable bit rates or are surround, al lof which may prevent AE from importing them 'cos it doesn't support those features. Generally you should not use MP3s in AE, but convert them to PCM (WAV or AIFF) files.
