Jennette McCurdy Talks 'Sam & Cat,' Ariana Grande, & Boyfriend Jesse Carere

Jennette McCurdy gets super candid in this new interview.

The 23-year-old Between star opened up to Vulture about the end of Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat, her reported feud with Ariana Grande, her boyfriend, and more. Check it:

On the end of the Nick show: “It was somewhat dramatic. Emotions were running high, and a lot of that was just blown up because so many people found out about the show ending.”

On Ariana: “[We] both had very different ideas of where [we] wanted [our] careers to go.”

On her mom’s death: “Six days after my mom died I went back to work. I thought, Oh if I do this Vine video, or If I do this episode, if I hit every mark, then I’ll be fine because I’ll have something else to focus on. But really I was just putting this huge life-changing event on the back burner and it was slowly causing me to unravel to the point where I would say I got to my lowest emotional point.”

On boyfriend of one year, Jesse Carere: “This is maybe staking a big claim in my future self, but I would say that I certainly love him right, you know? I feel like I’m learning to love in all the right ways and to accept love for who I am versus an impressive version of myself. I think from an early age I learned to be whatever person people needed me to be.”

    Was it really necessary to comment on the situation? Clearly, you had very different ideas of where you wanted your careers to go. Clearly…

    We’re all sick of hearing about your damn emails, Hilary.
