Ariana Grande has broken her silence surrounding the tension on Sam & Cat and regarding Jennette McCurdy‘s absence from the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards last week.
The 20-year-old actress/singer posted a statement on her Facebook about the whole situation. Read it below:
“I hate addressing rumors and I hate gossip but this is really bothering me. Jennette and I agreed upfront that we would be treated equally on this show in all regards (as we should be, considering we each work just as hard as the other on this show). The rumors circulating about our contracts and our salary not being equal are absolutely ridiculous and false. I don’t know who’s putting these idiotic quotes out there but I thought I’d straighten it out and try to end this nonsense.
“As far as the show goes, I don’t know what’s happening because I’m not directly involved with the problem but I just wanted to address this one rumor in particular because I am NOT making more money than my costar, nor do I think I should be. So we can all move on and get out of our heads that this was a money thing cause I don’t play like that at all. I am, have always been and always will be about equality and fairness.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK about Ariana’s statement?
Uh oh…looks like there’s a bit of trouble happening on the Sam & Cat set, guys.
After the show’s big win on Saturday at the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards for both Favorite TV Show and Favorite TV Actress for Ariana Grande, Deadline reports that everything might be up in the air on a future for the show.
“There has been talk about discord on the set, with emotions running high and Jennette McCurdy and Grande sometimes showing up late. The grueling, 40-episode shoot has been taxing on everyone. Additionally, McCurdy had been going through a difficult time in her personal life for the past six months and recently had to deal with the leak of racy photos, while Grande’s music career has taken off a big time,” the site writes. Eek!
The rumors continued, “I hear things came to a head last week when the show came close to a shutdown. Then this past weekend, McCurdy publicly accused Nickelodeon of unfair treatment. She also fueled speculation about a rift with long-time best friend Grande by un-following Grande on social media and not joining her co-star at [the awards, where creator Dan] Schneider receiving a lifetime achievement award.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK is happening? Do you think the show will end?
The 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards was buzzing with tons of young Hollywood stars, but Jennette McCurdy was noticeably absent from the carpet and show.
“A lot of you guys are asking why I didn’t attend the KCAs…. I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me,” the 21-year-old actress wrote on Twitter.
She continued, “I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you.”
Jennette added later on to questioning fans, “It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me. That’s all. Thanks for the love. <3"

“My kiss story with Andre, my first kiss with him was after we had gone laser-tagging. Me and some of my friends when back to my house and he was having a car service pick him up. So all of my friends left and he was like, ‘My car is outside.’ And I was like, ‘Oh OK,” trying to look like I was ready to be kissed.”
She continued, “I sort of went for it. It wasn’t great. It didn’t go great. No sparks. The mouths…the shapes weren’t just right.”
Soon after that podcast, private photos of Jennette leaked and she took to Twitter to call out the person responsible.
