Jennette McCurdy: Album In The Works!

Jennette McCurdy: Album In The Works!

iCarly sidekick Jennette McCurdy crams in homework, rehearses for her Nick show and now has a music career on the horizon.

The 16-year-old actress recently sat down with PJ Star newspaper to talk about iCarly, balancing schoolwork, and her future in show business.

Jennette shared this about her music: “I’m actually working on my first CD. I can’t even describe it, it’s so cool. I’m working with really great songwriters, and being able to get in a studio and sing and help write some of the songs has been an awesome experience. I’m actually learning to play the guitar and the drums. I played the piano in the past, for six years before. I’m really trying to delve in, full force. I’m hoping to release a single in the very early part of ’09.”

To read the full interview, check out PJStar.com. Jennette will be at the local Peoria Rivermen’s hockey game signing autographs and meeting her fans from 6:15 to 8:45 p.m. on Friday, November 28th at Carver Arena.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Jennette launch her music career?

  • Lulu

    I can’t wait! Jennette is an amazing actress and I’m sure she will be an amazing singer too.

    She’s a great actress but singing wise I dont think she’ll be that good just like selena gomez

  • alli

    i have nothing against this girl personally. she seemed like a good actress the one time i saw icarly. However, i have a problem with the fact that there is no such thing as an actress or a singer or fashion designer what have you anymore. at least theyre hard to find. there are just “celebrities”. It makes me so annoyed whenever i hear about some actress getting an album, or a singer going to star in a movie. And then they all need their own clothing line, and their own perfume….Its RIDICULOUS. it makes them lose all credibility at their specialty (in this girls case: acting) and just become morphed into the cheesy celebrity category. It just pisses me off because some people work their whole lives to be the best actor, singer, or designer that they can, and then these celebrities get all the jobs in spite of (and BECAUSE) they’re already famous. To be honest, it makes me sick. Give it a rest. When you celebs do that, you may get more press and money, but you get less respect.

    #9- AGREE!

  • faith! : ]

    Woah, every Nick & Disney star can sing, well at least they think they can. Is it like a requirement when u try to act on either channel, to sing? Idk. but w/e. I am intrested to hear what she sounds like! : ]

  • http://justjaredjr. zhanique

    I agree #9 some people have so much talent and are dedicated to what they do and these celebs just get things handed to them It makes me sick too if you wanna be an actress be an actress but don’t take on another job millions kill to have or actually have an interest in

  • jenna

    What’s wrong with her wanting to put out in album? And what’s wrong that stars want to diversify and do more than one thing? I think it’s cool because that’d be lame to do the same thing for the rest your life. So they want to experience new things… I say good for them. And I think Jennette’s the coolest person on iCarly, so I’m sure her CD will be good too!

  • http://justjaredjr.buzznet.com HATE MILEY!!!!!!

    SURE ID BUY IT

  • Cadie

    YES!!! I cannot wait for her album!!! yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Emy

    ugh!!!! NO!!!!!! LOVE ICARLY, but please no singing!!

  • http://justjaredjr.com liam—

    a big yes. she is really good in acting. i think she should give it a try

  • SSSSSS

    I love Jennette Mccurdy!. She’s so cool.

  • jacob

    i’m looking forward to it. she’s one helluva actress, can do dramatic stuff and comedy. i f she puts her mind to it, she will do a good job w/music too. but i think acting is where her true genius lies

  • Saviss

    She is so cute <3
    im sure looking forward to her album !

  • geena

    #7, I’d sign your protest but if you want anyone signing up, you should be respecting us.
    BE MATURE.

    You can’t judge someone’s singing before even hearing it.
    Dumbasses.

    JENETTE, YOU ROCK!

  • BILLY

    Jennette McCurdy is a great singer. Her album is gonna be great.

  • Susan

    Jenette McCurdy is amazing. She’s so pretty!
    I think she’ll be an amazing singer. I don’t get why people are dissing this girls dream. How would you feel if someone told you that you couldn’t be whatever you wanted to be. That you didn’t have the potential. Why would you people say things like that? If she wants to do it, don’t try to convice her not to. You people are rude.

  • TWILIGHT

    DON’T LISTEN TO THOSE PEOPLE! OF COURSE SHE CAN SING AND IF SHE CAN DO ALL THOSE OTHER THINGS LIKE KARATE AND STUFF THEN ITS PROVEN RIGHT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chris

    her album is gonna rock!!!! she is a great actriss and will be a great singer to no doubt!!!

  • http://Myspace.com t.a.m.

    #7 im stickin with #21.ur singing probably isnt even that goo and yet ur judging jannette when u havent even heard her sing yet.

    I bet ur awsome jannette!

  • llama

    I think its gonna rock.

    Just because Selina Gomez isn’t the greatest singer doesn’t mean McCurdy won’t

    Peace out

    Good Luck

    THAT SHOW WAS GOOD! THEY MUST GOT PAYED A LOT!

  • keN

    OK….the songs out and sounds great. Better than alot of people
    would have thought. Remember, it’s her first shot at writing, playing
    and singing her own music. She’s going to get even Better..!
    …(wow..there sure are alot of angry beavers out there).
    Think back over the years, of all the singer/dancer/musicians
    that also acted on screen at the same time. There’s lots, but
    her depth of talent is still fairly rare, especially at 16 yrs.
    We’ve only seen the very beginning of Jennett McCurdy’s
    long career. I’m pull’n for her, ( unless she starts crash’n her
    Benz into palm trees on Sunset, then I’m out ). . ‘Jam it up Jmac’
