Victoria Justice, ‘I’ve Tried Smoking’

Victoria Justice @ 2011 Nickelodeon Upfront Presentation at Jazz at Lincoln Center on in New York City. Victoria told 17: ‘I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve tried things. I’m not some robot who’s programmed to be perfect. I have been to high school parties. 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 & I didn’t like anything about it. I feel that smoking, drinking and doing drugs are kind of selfish because you end up isolating yourself from everyone else.

And I’ve had to make certain choices and be a lot more responsible with my life. I have been given a huge opportunity, and I don’t want to let my fans and family down.’ Have YOU ever tried smoking a cigarette?

    Well that’s good that she’s honest, i’ve always felt that Nickoldeon kids had more freedom the Disney kids, ‘because people are less judgmental with them people are like Meh w,e, but if it was Miley Demi or Selena we wouldn’t hear the end of it!

  • SmellsLikeTeenSpirt

    Oceanup,I’ve tried alot more then a cigarette XD

  • thedarksunshine

    I love that she was completely honest about it.
    I’ve never tried any of those things. I’ve never been tempted to smoke. The smell of it is already disgusting. egh.

    Weird thing is I cant even imagine her doing things like that cause she seems sweet LOL
    But that shows she’s not perfect

    unlike someone who tries to be too perfect *cough selena *cough

    I tried it when I was like 15 or 16. So thrilling.

  • milenator

    I never smoked but I’ve drank before

    if Victoria was ever immensely famous like Miley Cyrus, with paps and everyone eying her every move she’d get bad rep for doing things like this and people would’ve hunt down and leaked her private ‘scandalous’ photos(just like with Miley),
    which is why people should lay off Miley cause everyone wants her to mess up

    no one’s perfect even if you are supposed to be considered a ‘role model’

  • Anonymous

    if Miley admitted some mistakes she’s done people would make a big deal out of it -_-
    perhaps disney stars get it more rough cause theyre more pressured to be like saints

  • Anonymous

    thats kinda cool she’s admitted doinig things like that
    but that stuff kind of personal
    not many teen idols admit doing bad things
    But at least she’s admitting she’s not like a perfect robot (like selena)
    with Miley she’s more like ‘caught’ or ‘tracked’ down since people view her under a microscope

    I don’t understand how Selena tries to be perfect :/ she’s just a private person. She said with her Ryan Secrest Interview that she wants to be known for her work and said that she clearly makes misakes but she chooses to deal with them with her family!..plus I’d like to know how she acts perfect when she just admitted to the world that at times she gets insecure, that’s why she dedicated that song Who Says to every girl who fee that way.

    Wow, I can’t stand her, but this made me like her. Good for her. She has morals but she’s not afraid to admit that she’s messed up. But I do think Nick is a lot more lenient. If she were a Disney star, Disney would have a fit.

    smoking smells..

    all your stuff smells

    people smell you a mile away

    and cant get the stech out of there hair

    once they been in your house.

    drink responsibly.

    Good MOTTO to stick by. I aint had a drink since new years.
    i drink but when i feel like it
    like every few months lol

    just get a cup of milk and take a nap when your stressed.

    I think it’s funny that just because she’s “honest”, it’s okay that she smoked haha if Miley admitted this, you guys would attack her.

    And what is responsible drinking if you’re illegally drinking? Newsflash: The drinking age is 21.

    This is the most idiotic thing I’ve ever read.

    She is 18 years old, obviously every 18 year old will experiment or a majority of 18 year olds. I’m not saying ALL 18 year olds do drugs or have tried drugs but most have. It’s high school, everyone changes and grows up and wants to try new things. Most of my friends are completely different now then how they were the beginning of high school.

    I don’t mean to burst your guys bubbles but Victoria Justice isn’t all the way she makes herself out to be. Yes she admitted to trying smoking but from actually witnessing and seeing, I know for a fact she isn’t a virgin.
    Which isn’t a big deal or anything but I saw on another topic of Victoria everyone going on about how she is a virgin and is waiting till marriage. Well uh no, she has already had sex. She had a boyfriend not that long ago and he wasn’t a virgin, they had sex. She had sex also a few years ago with her ex boyfriend. There is pictures of them kissing from a few years back if anyone remembers that.. They also had sex and I know that for a fact.

    Cigs are so gross.
    I’d rather have a joint.
    At least it doesn’t harm your body.
    People need to realized that weed just relaxes you, & makes everything a bit more interesting.
    just be safe about it. Do it at your home and then don’t go drive or anything & your good.
    Honestly, alcohol & cigs are much worse.
    They can kill you, weed can’t.
    No one has ever died from weed.

    LEGALIZE IT!

    I was really devastated when I saw this post. I truly did have this image of Victoria as “perfect.” So seeing this post and coming to the realization that she’s not perfect left me broken hearted and disappointed. However, after some thinking, I’ve realized that her honesty proves how genuine she is. She could’ve easily lied and said, “I’ve never smoke or drank. It’s bad for my body and would send a bad message to my fans.” This would’ve kept everyone happy. But, the fact that owned up to her actions is amazing. I admire her so much and love her just the same, if not MORE. :)

  • LucyWhite

    I’ve smoked twice. Not interested/. I drink with friends/go out. Drugs are so-so. Who cares. And it doesn’t isolate you really. It’s a social thing. If you drink alone.. THEN you need to think about what you’re doing.

    (I’m legal to drink at 18 here)
    But I’ve been doing so since 16..responsibly. Only at friend’s houses and I’ve never collapsed on the floor or dumb stuff like that. You only need to worry about stupid people when concerning underage drinking.

  • okGo

    i love this chick!
    and i will try anything, except a cigerette
    never ever in my life will i ever touch one, and i know alot of people say that when they’re young but they end up being heavy smokers, but im 17 and i know for a fact i will never touch a cigerette.

    Nah, your just a troll, and besides, how would you know, it’s her business to spread around anyway.

She’s actually genuine and doesn’t act like a whore (from my opinion) proof or it didn’t happen, and atleast she got the confidence to say what she did because everyones curious and she’s HUMAN… Peace bro haha

    I love her honesty. I bet that if the majority of Disney/Nick stars were as honest and true to their fans as Victoria, we’d see that Miley isn’t the only one who has experimented with things. All teenagers do it. I’ve never smoked a cigarette because I think it’s the most repulsive thing in the world, but I do drink on a regular basis and I smoke pot occasionally.

I’m sure the Disney Stars have done something wrong at least once but they hide it to theirs fans, I love Miley because she’s so real and I know who she really is and she’s just like any teenager, she tries new things, make mistakes and then learn from them, I love it because I can relate to her.

    Selena said she prefers to hide her mistakes because she doesnt want to dissapoint her fans.
    I think she doesnt trust her fans enough to show them she makes mistakes. maybe she thinks they’re not gonna support her since almost all her fans are fans of her because she is such a good and perfect girl
