Nickelodeon Star Victoria Justice: I've Tried Smoking & Drinking…But It's Not For Me!

Fri, March 11, 2011 9:10pm EDT by 42 Comments

In a candid interview in April’s Seventeen, Victoria Justice opens up about partying and why she never wants to disappoint her fans by turning into a bad girl!

Pull out your Victoria Justice check list and mark off yet another reason why she should be one of your favorite teen queens. The 18-year-old Victorious starlet opened up in the April edition of Seventeen and admitted she’s not flawless — but assured us she won’t be going bad girl crazy on us any time soon. We love her honesty!

“I’m not going to lie to you: I’ve tried things. I’m not some robot who’s programmed to be perfect,” she said. “I’ve been to high school parties. And even if I’ve had a drink, it’s always in a responsible way. I did go through a phase when I wanted to try smoking, and for a minute I did. But shortly after, I just kind of realized it was gross, and I didn’t like anything about it.”

Unlike many of her fellow teen stars, Victoria doesn’t shy away from tough questions about underage drinking and partying — but that doesn’t mean she encourages it.

“If I’m at a party, I’m going to dance, not huddle in some corner and smoke or sneak a drink. I feel that smoking, drinking, and doing drugs are kind of selfish because you end up isolating yourself from everyone else,” she explained. “And I’ve had to make certain choices and be a lot more responsible with my life. I’ve been given a huge opportunity, and I don’t want to let my fans and family down.”

We wish Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen would take a few notes from Victoria. It’s refreshing to see a young actress with such a good head on her shoulders, that’s why you should be sure to vote for her in the race for “Best TV Actress” at the Kids’ Choice Awards!

Selena gomez and ariana grande are wonderful,talented,pretty, and a great role model. They know how to act and they are good girls. Selena was in spring breakers but it didn’t make a crack in her good girl appearance. If you are wondering how I know this…stay up on the latest teen gossip💄

I love Victoria justice, she might have tried it just to see how it is but she is not going continuously and she was being honest about she tried and she admitted that she was tempted. Not all people show true honesty about that stuff especially since she is famous

Yeah, you think she’s all nice when she’s a horrible actress, her show is sexual, racist, and offensive, and she sings worse than a cat diagnosed with cancer.

Honestly I do drink but I’ll do it only when I’m around friends but I can say I have never smoked in my life but lucky for me I don’t get hangover and when I do get drunk I can act sober. And I go to a place called lake harney. But the fact that Victoria don’t drink or smoke is great because she’s a pretty girl and all it’ll do is screw up her career and her look so good for her

Victoria justice is my role model. Miley Cyrus is a big disapointment to her fans. I am related to Tori, and in my eyes, shes perfect. I hve never seen her drink or smoke but she has told me about it and has vowed to never do drugs or drink. I love you Tori!

I agree with the comments saying that Miley Cyrus does learn from her mistakes and she is more fun. I just don’t understand why HL feel’s the need to comment on her when this article has absolutley nothing to do with Miley or Taylor. And plus Victoria has done exactly the same as Miley, she’s smoked – said she’s never gonna do it again which is what Miley has said too. So you really can’t comment on Miley telling her she should be like Victoria when both of them have practically done the same thing. I hope you read this and the rest of the other comments and learn that your nothing but some cyber bully. I love Victoria but what you say in your articles often comes off offense to other stars. I would love to see whoever wrote this go say it to either Taylor or Miley’s faces.

Victoria Justice is the Nickelodeon equivalent to Selena Gomez; pretty, super nice, can’t hate her because she’s too good to even try to hate, but SUPER boring. And why is it that HL always has to hate on Miley? Because she an 18 year old that likes to have fun and sometimes gets her hands dirty in the process. Its not like she hasn’t learned from her mistakes. I’m pretty sure that most teenagers would prefer to party with Miley over Victoria Justice any day (nothing against her she just seems like a bore). At least Miley knows how to have a good time. And I completely agree with Stan below. Your site should find a better way of reporting things without hating on others while doing so. You’re exactly like Perez Hilton and that’s not a compliment.

Stop hating on Miley. Its annoying and you always sound ignorant when you do so. Just because she chooses to have fun while being a teenager and do different things doesn’t mean she’s headed towards a downward spiral in life and going to end up like Lindsey Lohan. Lindsey Lohan is the way she is because she didn’t have a teenage life or childhood… Miley is quite the opposite. Sorry to make this post all about Miley when the article is about Victoria Justice. I do love Victoria but she seems boring. She’s like the nicklodeon version of Selena Gomez; pretty, super nice and down to earth, you can’t hate her because she too good of a person t try to hate but BORING. I’d rather party with Miley. And so would most other teenagers. She knows how to have a good ass time.

The Power of Christ compels you, Miley!!

So shameless, HL. Especially that last sentence…

Miley has learn from every ACTUAL Mistake she has ever made. The problem is everyone tries to turn things that are wrong into something that is. Even when she does good, people have to bring up the bad.

You are Just like Perez Hilton, a cyber bully. The only difference is you’re just better at hiding it.

I’m curious to know how Miley and Taylor shy away from those questions. Isn’t the usual criticism that Taylor is too open in interviews? Also when was Miley even asked those questions? You can’t shy away if you’re not asked.

What it comes down to is the same old biased Hollywoodlife reporting. Would be much easier to put up an article about how Taylor and Miley are the root of all evil, seeing that’s how they’re presented on here.
