When all is said and done, it’s Ariana’s show. If she wants to, she can put her against Justice all she wants, but the latter should at least try to be respectful of her former co-star’s history.
The Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande feud rumors have been resurfacing from time to time for years, and the “Afterlife of the Party” actor is sick of it. “When that ‘I Think We All Sing’ meme came out, I think that was so annoying,” she told E! News on April 18, wanting to set the record straight once and for all. “Ariana texted me and we both were like, ‘This is so stupid.'” Justice added that she thinks the narrative of wanting to pit her against her former “Victorious” co-star “isn’t relevant anymore.”
It’s clear that Justice has wanted to put an end to the rumors for a while, as she has continuously been supporting Grande throughout her success as a solo artist. In 2015, the “Zoey 101” alum admitted that she probably wouldn’t be teaming up with her former co-star anytime soon, but is still happy for her. “I think we’re kind of both on our own separate paths right now,” she told ET. “I’ve been more focused on acting and she’s doing her singing thing and doing awesome.”
And in 2019, the actor admitted that she had to leave Coachella early, missing the “thank u, next” singer’s concert. She later clarified that she didn’t dip out early because of her co-star, and she would’ve loved to watch Grande perform if she could. The two also took part in the “Victorious” reunion in 2020.
