In a recent interview with Seventeen magazine, Ariana Grande, who rose to fame as a star on the Nickelodeon TV show “Victorious,” opened up about her time on set and the tension she faced with one of her co-stars.
The young singer shared, “There was a co-star that I worked with who told me they’d never like me. Despite this, I felt like I needed their approval, so I started changing myself to please them. This caused me to stop being social and friendly. I was so unhappy.”
However, since the end of “Victorious,” Ariana considers herself lucky to be working with her current co-star, Jennette McCurdy, on their spinoff show “Sam & Cat.”
The singer had only positive things to say about Jennette, “She is a real, genuine, honest person, a good friend, and doesn’t care about all the superficial BS. She’s the most hilarious actress I’ve ever met and I just adore her.”
When asked about their new show, Jennette shared, “It’s flattering that people, I think, responded to our characters so well and that they would want to see us continue on in a show together.”
Although their characters in “Sam & Cat” won’t be singing, fans of Ariana can look forward to her forthcoming album, “Daydreamin’,” set to be released in August.
In the album, Ariana plans to channel the confidence of strong female artists such as Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, and Beyoncé.
The young singer also shared some wisdom she has gained, “I realized that if you want something, you really have to go for it, just like they do.”
It is clear that Ariana Grande has come a long way from her time on “Victorious.”
Despite the challenges she faced on set, she has remained focused on her music and her career, and her hard work is paying off.
With a successful spinoff show and a highly anticipated album on the horizon, there is no doubt that Ariana will continue to rise to the top.
Her fans can look forward to more music and more of her infectious smile, which has become one of her defining traits.
Ariana Grande is a true talent, and her journey to success is an inspiration to us all.
