Jennette McCurdy Won't Ever Be Your Role Model! She's Preaching Why It's Gonna Be That Way!

jennette mccurdy lets her fans know shes not a role model

Woah, Jennette McCurdy has a strong message for her fans!

Jennette posted a LONG (no seriously, it's an epic read), letter on Reddit explaining why she's not a role model.

In the post, Jennette makes many interesting points, one of them being that you can't call a celebrity a role model if you don't know them personally.

Hmmm, we guess that's sort of true!

Jennette explains:

"In order to be thought of as a real, true role model, I believe you have to know a person and their actions, inside and out. Calling a celebrity a role model is like calling a stranger a role model. The knowledge you have of a celebrity is no more than a caricature drawn by media tastemakers specializing in selling you an image you’re dying to buy. It’s good to have heroes, but you have to look for them in the right places. They say don’t look for true love in a bar, well I say, don’t look for role models on screens."

Wow, sounds like girl has thought about this whole role model thing A LOT.

Maybe Jennette has more time on her hands now that her show, Sam & Cat has been cancelled?

In the remainder of the post, Jennette admits that at one point she did try to be a role model:

Back in my adolescence, I was more amiable, bubbly, and on lightly humid days, maybe even flouncy. I was role model material and then some. Fast forward a few years, I’ve grown up a bit (emphasis on “a bit”). I might not be any wiser, but I like to think I’m more honest. With the growing I’ve done, I realize that to attempt to live up to the idea of being a role model is to set myself up for foregone failure. Sure, I’ve made some mistakes, but even if I hadn’t, people would have found invisible ones. This world is one seemingly most keen on judgment and negativity, despite all the hearts and smiley emoticons."

We wonder if Jennette's 'growing up' had to do with those leaked lingerie pics…those snaps were quite racy.

….welp, we're not sure what sparked this rant mini-novel from Jennette, but we're glad she got her thoughts off her chest!

    I disagree. She may be right is saying that we should have role models that we know personally, but the fact is that if she has fans, she IS a role model - like it or not. And there are plenty of really worthwhile role models that people do not know personally - athletes, activists, thinkers. It's just too bad that a lot of kids want to emulate fashions and bad behaviours instead of something deeper.

    Jennette is totally out of control since she lost her mother. She better restores contacts with Ariana, who is a stable person that can perhaps help to get Jennette back on track.

    Didn't basketball star Charles Barkley say the same thing 20 years ago? Guess it should be repeated for every generation of celeb worshipers.

    Re: tim – Really? Judging by this fairly lucid post, it seems to me that she has her head on quite straight.

    I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine lucy told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr Ekaka. I email ekakaspelltemple@yahoo.com the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Dr Ekaka for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me, the great spell caster email address is ekakaspelltemple@yahoo.com you are the best among all the spell caster online I hope you see my testimonies and also pray for my family too
