Jennette McCurdy On Ariana Grande Feud: ‘Sam & Cat’ Star Talks About Fight Rumors

While rumors surrounding the cancellation of Sam & Cat after just one season claimed that the two stars were fighting, Jennette is setting the record straight about what her relationship with the “Break Free” songstress is really like.

“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,” the hilarious actress told E! Online.

“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,” Jennette continued. “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.”

While they may have had their ups and downs, it is clear that Ariana has a special place in Jennette’s heart. “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.”

We are so glad to hear that Ariana and Jennette’s friendship is still as strong as ever — and who knows, maybe one day they will work together again!
