Ariana ‘I DON’T Make More Than Jennette’

ariana-grande-sideboob-tattooScreen Shot 2014-04-03 at 10.18.07 PMScreen Shot 2014-04-03 at 10.19.49 PM Ariana Grande took to twitter to address the rumors that she was making more money than Sam and Cat costar Jennette McCurdy: I hate addressing rumors and I hate gossip but this is really bothering me. Jennette and I agreed upfront that we would be treated equally on this show in all regards (as we should be, considering we each work just as hard as the other on this show).

The rumors circulating about our contracts and our salary not being equal are absolutely ridiculous and false. I don’t know who’s putting these idiotic quotes out there but I thought I’d straighten it out and try to end this nonsense.

As far as the show goes, I don’t know what’s happening because I’m not directly involved with the problem but I just wanted to address this one rumor in particular because I am NOT making more money than my costar, nor do I think I should be.

So we can all move on and get out of our heads that this was a money thing cause I don’t play like that at all. I am, have always been and always will be about equality and fairness.

    Good… That’s one rumor down…

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    Thank god she cleared up that rumor up, now we know they both are over paid! Now I can move on with my life…

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      lmao their show seriously SUCKS, but I mean, tbqh I think she is quite talented. Actors in general are overpaid tho if we’re being honest lol — like you get paid to look QT & memorize lines, oki.

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        I agree all actors are over paid. It’s sad how some get 100k to 1million for one week’s work.

        I do think both ariana and jenette are talented singers. I loved Ari’s album. It sucks that the 2 best singers on nick are on a show together and they don’t sing at all in it . This is the one time I would have been ok with a singing show lol.

        • Dereck Hartley

          It not just actors now. Youtubers are getting paid through the nose. With ad revenue and views, they are making an easy seven figures a year, while top youtubers are raking in the millions. Many sites have estimated Pewdiepie’s net worth to be $10 million. They’re very shady about it too.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            I agree and singers as well

        • WatchOut

          victoria justice and Liz are way better singers than Jenette in my opinion.

          • haha

            they’re way better singers than ariana in my opinion. she’s good but she overuses her voice. it doesn’t always have to be about high notes and whistle tones.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            I agree Liz is super talented. She is just as good as ari. Victoria can sing but not as well IMO

    • A Cat

      True but there are way more struggling actors as well who barely make enough to sustain a comfortable lifestyle.

      • Queen Amanda Bynes

        Yeah that’s true

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    drag dem haters Ari

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Well this is what Ariana says but what does Jennette say? Hmm..

  • Eva

    Where I come from, you never get to know anyone else’s’ salary. It is a private issue that is taken very strictly. Because honestly we can be at the same level, with the same technical skills and the same education but my negotiation game might be better than yours so no one knows… Unless you tell each other.

  • JoeJonasTroops

    money is all that matters to them they’re all here to suck on you

    • Caitlyn D

      that must be how ariana got the show

  • Mackintosh

    Well, someone’s lying and i don’t think it’s the mags this time.

  • JUG

    Wow, even Scooter Braun could not have written that better. I did not know Ariana Grande is such a good writer. Wonder what she got on her SAT?

  • smiler101

    It’s actually pretty cool that she addressed this rumor but does this mean that the rumor about her getting jennet’s award is true?! For me that is a most important topic than money :)

  • uest

    So she says. Celebrities get told what to say all the time. I don’t know if I want to believe her….

  • anon

    I think that’s true. Ariana is the bigger star now, but she wasn’t when they signed for the show. But maybe the reports was about the negotiation for the next season

  • Guest

    I do believe she gets more than Jeanette but only due to her other projects, specifically, her album with Scooter. I think, and would hope, Nick knew that a salary difference would cause a rift. I actually do believe Ariana on this.
