Jennette McCurdy was interviewed by E! News during her press conference tour in NYC to promote her upcoming Netflix series, Between. The topic of rumors about feuding with Ariana Grande during the time spent on Sam & Cat was brought up during the interview. Jennette addressed the relationship between her and Ariana more of being sisters despite what has been mentioned about the two.
I just feel that, you know Ariana and I were and are extremely close and very like-minded in a lot of different ways and then, sorta as the show dissolved, everybody wanted to find some sort of hidden meaning in our relationship. Some like drama and I think we butted heads at times but in a very sisterly way. She knows me so well and I know her so well that I think it was unfortunate that things kind of got misconstrued.
There is certainly like a friend dynamic but then once you’re around that person for—I mean, Carly, Sam & Cat—once we didn’t have child labor laws we could work like 16 hours a day so you are around these people constantly and It’s just natural that you’re gonna have ups and downs
But you bond so much and you’re so close that you can’t go through that experience and…I can’t imagine a world where you would not come out extreme friends. I mean I have bonds with both Miranda Cosgrove and Ariana that are impenetrable.
