There is a rumour of a celebrity feud between Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande doing the rounds. However Justice has now put a stop to the rumours of the alleged feud with Ariana Grande. She not only dismissed the allegations, but she also revealed that she and Grande talked about the rift rumours and found the narrative absolutely ridiculous.
“Ariana texted me and we both were like, ‘This is so stupid.’ I think the biggest rumour is this whole narrative that was created with me being jealous of her and of us not being friends,” she said. “I feel like it’s this constant story of the media and people wanting to pit people against each other, and it’s just so not even relevant anymore now. I was like, ‘This is so dumb.’ Ten years later! How is this even a story? This is so stupid.”
People speculated the rift from an interview of the ‘Victorious’ stars, Victoria Justice, Elizabeth Gillies and Daniella Monet. When Gillies mentioned that Grande randomly breaks out into song, Justice was mostly quiet and sat with her arms crossed before adding, “I think we all sing,” which Grande agreed with. However, the memes that have been circulating on the internet often do not show Grande agreeing to Justice.
Justice previously also spoke about this narrative in an interview and stated that the rumours actually began when Grande spoke about her experiences with bullying during her Broadway days. In an interview she did with Seventeen, she talked in-depth about bullying on set and how that affected her. Later, Grande told Victoria Justice that the article could be read as if it were about her. “Once the article got out there, everyone thought that I was this bully and that I was mean to her, which couldn’t be further from the truth,” Victoria noted.
