Joking about Nick's much-publicized divorce from Mariah Carey, the teen quipped:
"I just outgrew Barbies — like Mariah did Nick."
But Nick took the slam in stride, later telling ET:
"I'm kind of used to that type of humor on my other show, but it was all in fun man. She's outstanding. She's hilarious. When you can show that you don't take yourself so seriously, I think that's what people love and embrace. I was like, ‘Take as many shots at me as you want.'"
Did he feel the need to give his famous ex a heads up when he knows that joke is about to air?? He explained:
"Sometimes you do, man, and she thinks I'm the one that put people up to that stuff. I get myself in enough trouble! But she has fun with it too. She knows that, you know, there's no hard feelings and it's all love so when people joke and I make jokes, it's just all in jest."
