Letters to Jennette
I wish you a great birthday this year, full of love, joy and fun! You are a true role model to look up to. Youâ€™re beautiful, funny, smart and very talented! Youâ€™re such a kind girl, so down to earth, and would love to be your friend J
You have touched me and all of us when you wrote an essay about your mother this year and I really hope that she will get better and that you and your family will be happy like they were when your mom was healthy.
I wish that this year will be even better than the previous year also since your amazing album will be released soon! J
From @yoavtweets, I love you Bilgerdunday!
Dear Jennette (aka J-Mac, J-Swag, and my favorite-Je-nay-nay),
(I REALLY apologize if this gets to being a little long, but you deserve to know JUST how much you mean to me)
First of all, it’s hard to believe that you’re 19 years old!! It’s also amazing to me that I was born exactly 9 months and 10 days before you (on September 16th, 1991). I really hope that this is a special day for you and your Family. :)
Second, I want you to know how much you’ve motivated and inspired me with your acting skills and your music. You’ve also motivated and inspired me to get back in to acting and singing myself. Therefore, I’ve set the goals and hold the dream to not only be a successful TV/movie actor, but also be a successful recording artist/songwriter-just like you. I especially want to get to Nickelodeon and be able to star on iCarly with my own character (I’ve created it and made it unique, standing out from Sam, Carly, and Freddie). Being in movies and television has always been something I’ve aimed for (especially on Nick), but iCarly is a comedy, and one that I feel like I could easily relate to and transition in to.
As far as the music goes, I’ve already written several songs in a notepad I have, and I’ve taken the experiences from my life and written about them. I also have a strong desire to take the rock, pop, and blues genres, mix them together, and create a new sound and a new genre. I’m taking the 5 most influential recording artists of mine-Elvis Presley, Marvin Gaye, Judy Garland, Michael Jackson, and Frank Sinatra-and making something both brand new and exciting. All 5 of them have hugely impacted me personally in addition to musically, as a performer and entertainer, and as an actor. However, you are the 6th person to be added to this treasured list-and the best bar none!! :)
Third, I know this is a very hard and difficult period for you away from the set and the studio and so on. In a way I understand how this feels for you. My Grandmother (my Mom’s Mother) died on March 19th at the age of 81. She may have died as a result of the return of ovarian cancer, but we’ll never know as we didn’t want an autopsy done. She did get diagnosed with it in 2008 and beat it. But ultimately that, along with a badly functioning liver, took her from us. Your Mom has to be a very strong, loving person, and I know this because my own Mom is that way. She gave birth the strongest, sweetest, kindest, most caring, most loving, most compassionate, bravest, most courageous, smartest, most genuine, and most sincere girl I’ve EVER seen or have known of.
I may be 3 months from turning 20, but I LOVE and ADORE iCarly and Nick. You are the main reason why I watch iCarly every day, and why I’ve had the drive to get out there, do the things you do, and join you on that set with Nathan, Miranda, Noah, Jerry, Dan, and all those wonderful class acts you work with every day. I’ve had a few obstacles come my way in my life so far, but I know that I’ve triumphed over each situation of adversity I’ve faced simply because of my positive, upbeat attitude. To be honest and truthful, I’ve tried to be myself yet use you as a prime example of how to be and how to live.
I told a pal of mine when describing you that “it’s like God took one of His angels in Heaven and put its heart, spirit, and soul in Jennette’s body.” Your sense of humor, your love/respect/kindness/friendliness/appreciation for everyone you meet, and your classy/dignified ways (plus TOTAL swagger) is something I not only can relate to, but also I feel like I’ve always tried to be like that. When praying to my Heavenly Father (and my Grandmother) to help me make my dreams come true, I also pray that you’ll be a huge part of my success and excellence as well. :) I’ve ALWAYS hated and despised the word “celebrity” with a burning passion. In my mind, we’re all equal and extraordinary people with extraordinary talents, gifts, skills, and abilities that are not only critical to the survival of this planet, but also critical to the success and excellence of mankind itself. You’re a shining example of that!! .
May God Bless you as He has blessed me (you being one of THE BIGGEST blessings in my life by far). Hope you come to Kansas City on your Rebecca BonBon tour. If you come to a K-Mart here, I’m coming to see you, period. :) I’m SO proud and blessed that you’re a part of the same generation as me. Together, we can truly be “Generation Love.” And show the world that “We Are Love” (the title to one of my many songs I’ve written). :) Again have a wonderful day, and MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH love to you!! :)
Sincerely, Yours Truly, Your Biggest Fan (and hopefully one day future co-star and fellow recording artist!!),
