Ariana Grande Bites The Hand That Fed Her! Despite Nickelodeon Making Her A Star, Working There Was 'Frustrating'!

| Filed under: Ariana Grande

ariana grande nickelodeon diss frustrating

Well, we guess we can say Ariana Grande is definitely honest.

Even if that honesty includes her kind of dissing her former job.

Now that her Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat has been cancelled, Ariana is speaking about what it was like working for Nick.

And even though it had its ups, it also had its downs, which she's more than willing to talk about. She explained:

"It was a blessing and one of my childhood dreams come true … For a long time I was attached to a character that was nothing like myself. It was a little frustrating."

Hmmm, it sounds like acting just might not be the career she wanted because often people are playing characters who are nothing like them.

But we understand that a longtime TV gig as one person can be draining, seeing as she played the character previously on Victorious.

Whatever the reason for her frustration with Nick, all seems to be resolved now that her show has been cancelled.

Yay for cancellations??

    I cannot stand this girl. She thinks she's holier than thou yet we all know she loves cocaine. She's anorexic which is setting a horrible example for her fans while she lies out of her ass saying it's just healthy eating…PLEASE. She used to be fat. She sounds like a moron when she says she was playing a character nothing like herself Bahahahahaha Jesus Christ you idiot that's the point of acting. What a moron. I hate this chick, I wish she would go away!!!

  2. Are you stupid? says – reply to this


    She meant that Victoria Justice treated her like a dog! asshole

    Re: Tess – you are a sick person and you need help. Seriously. If you think ariana was ever fat than clearly you are the anorexic one. And making allegations of drug use is beyond stupid. Grow up, get help for your jealousy and worry about yourself

    I just don't get her. She is not the impressive.

  7. Jenn says – reply to this


    She complains a lot about playing that character. But I don't get why she agreed to do "Sam and Cat" if the character annoyed her that much..

    "I was attached to a character that was nothing like myself"
    - Isn't that what "ACTING" is about? hm…

    Re: StephiieRe: Jenn – Exactly, does she not realize what an actor does. I guess Meryl Streep must be extremely confusing to her since she's had how many accents in how many movies!

  10. @v@ says – reply to this


    She's certainly being heavily promoted as the next thing. Does she write tunes or play any instruments as well?

  11. Tamzin says – reply to this


    I can imagine her frustration, because she was very often personally hated and blamed for her character Cat, that's not funny for an actress. Next to that Nickelodeon didn't gave her a real chance at Victorious, she was the only female cast member that was never allowed to sing solo. Only after she became succesful as singer Nickeodeon tried to show off with her via Sam & Cat. So yes, Nickelodeon gave a small chance (for which she already said thank you) but contributed nothing to her current success.

  12. Erica says – reply to this


    Nickelodeon didn't make her a star, that is totally untrue. They treated her as a dummy backstage actress, never gave her a real chance at Victorious (unlike Victoria and Liz) and never recognized her potential. Her current success is only due to Scooter Braun and to herself.

    Re: Tess – Please check the Break Free video. Nothing wrong with her weight, she looks perfectly healthy.

  14. Tamzin says – reply to this


    Re: @v@
    She is playing piano.

    Re: SuckItTrebek
    True, but Meryl Streep was never personally hated for the characters she played like Ariana.

  16. @v@ says – reply to this


    Scooter Braun? Respect. No wonder she's everywhere.

  17. Lindy says – reply to this


    this girl is the fakest brat in the industry someone kick her out already!! we want Victoria justice back

    "It was a blessing and one of my childhood dreams come true … For a long time I was attached to a character that was nothing like myself. It was a little frustrating."

    Sorry,but I don't think anyone at Nick will be upset about this remark. It's not offensive. Also at Nick they will understand that it was very difficult to Ariana to combine the daft character of Cat Valentine with that of a serious singer.

    Re: Lindy
    Nickelodeon has for four years spent a lot of effort and money to promote Victoria as their big star. And eventually the success is for Ariana, who was a backstage actress, who was not allowed to sing and who was never promoted by Nickelodeon. If Victoria could not beat Ariana even with every help of Nickelodeon, how do you think she's going to do that in future?

    Re: Tess – she's not anorexic stupid hoe

  21. B says – reply to this


    Re: @v@ – yes she does

  22. Victori says – reply to this


    Re: Lindy – Victoria is a total flop hahahaha

  23. Lsldl says – reply to this


    Re: Are you stupid? – no when will people understand that she didn't mean Victoria it was someone on broadway

  24. Caitlin says – reply to this


    Re: Victori
    Well, calling Victoria a total flop is also not fair. The problem with Victoria is that she's good in everything, but not excellent in anything. She's is typical allrounder, better suited for musical. Next to that she lacks the ambition and work ethic of Ariana.
