Jennette McCurdy's Kids' Choice Awards Boycott Had Nothing To Do With Her Lingerie Pic Scandal & Everything To Do With Ariana Grande's Paycheck!

jennette mccurdy upset nickelodeon paid less than ariana grande

Everyone couldn't help but notice Jennette McCurdy missing from the Kids' Choice Awards last weekend.

And while many thought her recently leaked lingerie pics were the explanation for her absence, it seems there's a far less scandalous explanation.

Although, it could quickly become more scandalous if Jennette doesn't get what she wants!

It seems the Sam & Cat star was missing from the Nickelodeon event because she's been displeased with how much she makes in comparison to her co-star, Ariana Grande!

Ariana apparently makes a considerable amount more for the show, which has led to Jennette trying to renegotiate her contract.

Unfortunately, and as it became obvious this weekend, she hasn't yet been successful.

Meanwhile, the show's production has been halted and a second season hasn't yet been ordered despite it being one of the most popular programs on the network!

On the upside, it seems Jennette doesn't have beef with Ariana personally! She just wants her money. LOLz!

    IDK how much either makes, but it does make sense that Ariana would get more money. She is also a singer, and has fans from that as well. She brings more to the table, if you will.

    Re: Jessicalc – I agree. I get that Ariana has tons of fans from singing and has built a huge career out of that, but Jennette has been loyal to Nickelodeon for double the time as Ariana. The show is Sam AND Cat, both meaning they should be equal.

    I disagree with both above… The only reason I watch this show is bc of Jeanette the same reason why I watches icarly. Jeannette is a great hilarious actress and unlike Ariana I can't stand that stupid dumb role she plays I can never take her serious not even in her singing career she sucks as an actress and singer if Jeannette leaves the show it will go down hill.

    She has every right to be mad. They should be getting paid equal! Who cares if Ariana is more popular? Equal work means equal play.
    However, I don't think boycotting the award show was the best way to handle it. She could've used that show to get more popularity, which could've benfitted her in the long run. She just made Ariana more famous, by letting her show up solo.

    jennette should make just as muchas Ariana.. many people watch sam and cat cause of sam, her character brings it all together.. and the shows focus is both of them equally..

    If they contribute equally to the show, then they should be paid equally.
    That being said though, Jennette should just be grateful she has such a good paying job. Pretty soon she will be too old for these nonsense shows.
    Maybe she should have a long lunch with Drake. He can tell her what will happen to her once Nick tosses her aside. She is going to end up tanking her own career.

    I've never heard Ariana's songs, so I don't know how well she sings. What I do know is she has TONS of fans.
    At my job, when someone brings more to the table, they get paid more. Usually that's because they come with certain clientele that the company didn't already have, and I can see that possibly Ariana is doing just that.

    Now, that doesn't mean Ariana should get a drastically larger paycheck, but I can understand why they would give her a bit more. Personally, I also like Jennette better.

    Well, I only watch Sam & Cat sometimes because of Ariana! She wears these cute short skirts, and she's prettier than Jennette. Anyway, I would say McCurdy is an 8.5/10 and Grande a 9.3/10. Of course, her character's personality as well. So goofy and cute.
