When pop star Ariana Grande was announced as the new coach on Season 21 of The Voice, fans’ reactions were mixed. Some were impressed. Others got angry.
Evoking a wide range of emotions in people is no stranger to Grande. Jennette McCurdy, former star of Nickelodeon “Sam & Cat,” knows this all too well. In her new book,I’m so glad my mom passed awayMcCurdy describes how difficult it is to work with Grande.
“Sam & Cat” aired on Nickelodeon in 2013 and 2014. McCurdy played Sam Puckett, a continuation of her popular character on “iCarly”. Grande played Cat Valentine, also an extension of the former Nickelodeon character, from the show “Victorious”. The two young men played roommates and babysitting service owners.
Rumors of a feud between the young actresses circulated throughout production, According to Grantland.com, It may eventually lead to the show being canceled. After a series of public animosities between Grande and McCurdy, “Grandy posted an emotional farewell to the show… which was very sweet on the surface, but his thankfulness clearly left no mention of McCurdy,” Grantland reports.
It’s been nearly a decade since Grande and McCurdy starred in “Sam & Cat,” and the rivalry has gradually faded away. However, with the recent release of McCurdy’s diary, old feelings and memories resurfaced.
In the book, McCurdy describes her aggravation: “My acting partner, Ariana Grande, is a burgeoning pop star who regularly misses work to sing at award shows, record new songs, and push for her next album while I stay away and angrily hold down the bastion.”
McCurdy continues, “I understand on a superficial level why she should miss work. But at the same time, I don’t understand why she was allowed to. I booked two features during iCarly and had to turn them down because the iCarly team wouldn’t write me off episodes to shoot.”
The 30-year-old then tells about the “last straw” moment when Grande was unable to attend the taping, so the entire episode was filmed as if her character was trapped in a box.
For a while, McCurdy managed to control her anger and jealousy. But soon she began to wonder, “Does [Ariana] They rob me of opportunities that could have been mine? The turning point for McCurdy was when Grande came dancing on stage and talking about hanging out at Tom Hanks’ house the night before.
“From that moment on, I didn’t love her. I remembered McCurdy.” The pop star success I can take, but hanging out with Sheriff Woody, with Forrest F***gump? This has gone too far. So now, every time you miss work, it feels like a personal attack. Every time something exciting happens to her, I feel like she robbed me of experiencing that experience for myself.”
McCurdy wants Grande to read the book
McCurdy told Entertainment Tonight“I don’t know if [Ariana will] Read the book or not, but I think it’s a really fun read no matter who you are, so I hope you do.” So far, Grande hasn’t made any public statements about whether she’s read the memoir, or if so, what her reaction is. .
According to Vogue, I’m Glad My Mom Died “is the first New York Times bestselling memoir that also achieved the status of a popular culture phenomenon.” The weird title really grabbed people’s attention. As Vogue explains, “Mccurdy’s mother, Debra, who died of breast cancer in 2013 when McCurdy was 21, had controlled and abused McCurdy her whole life, she writes, pulling the puppets of McCurdy’s acting career (a dream come true). Debra never achieved it for herself.) and manipulated her against quitting.”
McCurdy now gets different praise than she did as an actress, and it’s much more satisfying. She told Vogue, “I’ve felt a great connection to the people connecting with the book, and it’s useful to me in a way I haven’t experienced in my previous career.”
Ariana Grande left “The Voice” after one season and continues her music career.
