Apparently, Drake Bell seems to be quite bitter these days after filing for bankruptcy last month, as reported here on The Inquisitr. Drake has showed his distaste for Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. Now Drake has added another person to his blacklist, and she’s a Nickelodeon star: Ariana Grande.
According to International Business Times, Drake Bell recently had an interview on BuzzFeed. The former Nickelodeon star slammed Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga again, but this time included Ariana Grande. “Beliebers” are probably used to hearing their icon star attacked with hateful statements, but for Ariana Grande fans – known as “Arianators” – this is a first to hear vile comments spewed towards their favorite star. Drake actually had this to say about younger actors, especially Ariana Grande:
“I don’t think a lot of these young people have to work very hard. They’re found on YouTube and, boom, thrown into the studio so they think they can get anything they want. Ariana Grande is a billionaire before she’s been an artist. You have to work to be able to appreciate what you have, and what work did she ever have to do in her life?”
Ariana Grande however has worked hard for what she has done. First, Ariana started out in children’s community theater. Ariana also started out on Broadway before acting. Personally for this writer, Ariana is actually a very entertaining actress. Listen to her voice outside of acting, then listen to her voice while she’s in the character as Cat Valentine in both Victorious and Sam & Cat. As for the billionaire statement, Ariana’s net worth is now at $5 million which is nowhere near $1 billion, as reported by MTV.
However, Drake Bell would have an issue with anyone who sides, likes, or defends Ariana Grande too, since he slammed her “Arianators” as well:
“Ariana Grande’s fans told Perez Hilton that he and his son needed to die and get cancer, and she just fed it. It’s disgusting.”
However, Ariana Grande did send out a tweet on her official Twitter page about the comments made towards Perez Hilton. She asked her “Arianators” not to wish negativity on anyone.
Drake Bell needs to watch out! Along with the “Beliebers” and “Little Monsters”, he’ll have to deal with the “Arianators” too. Verbally attacking pop stars, especially Ariana Grande, is probably his way of becoming prominent in the media again. Once again as reported earlier, Drake filed for bankruptcy, in which he is $1.6 million in debt, which is more than half of his net worth.
Maybe Drake Bell is jealous that Ariana Grande is worth more than him right now.
