Nickelodeon Star Jennette McCurdy Follows in the Footsteps of Miley and Britney, Sheds Her Image By Getting Downright Filthy

If you’re not familiar with Jenette McCurdy, it’s probably because you’re over the age of 20. She’s most famous for her role as Sam Puckett on the Nickelodeon sitcom iCarly, and she’s currently reprising her role in the spin-off series Sam & Cat as well as recording country-music albums. However, McCurdy is 21 and having difficulties shedding her Nickelodeon image. Taking a cue from her predecessors — Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and a host of others who have had to break free from their child star reputations — McCurdy is getting dirty. She understands that “the music industry has gotten to the point where it doesn’t matter what kind of music you make, you have to create personas that are increasingly unreal to get get attention,” so she’s taking matters into her own hands.

    I didn't find this particularly funny, but I like the jabs it's taking entertainment industry.

    Somewhere, Lady Gaga is stamping her feet in her horse hoof shoes in despair that she didn't try this first for real.

    This is great. I actually watched a few episodes of Sam and Cat over Christmas because my 6-year-old cousin likes it, and it actually had its funny moments. Plus I was happy that my gun-obsessed little cousin was watching a show with two fairly interesting female leads.

    Don't make jokes like that about Jenette, you almost gave me a heart attack.

  • "Just hit the bean switches to add more beans" should be available to so many things in life.

  • Miss Kate

    Gimme more BEANS!!!!

    Heh. They say you have to come up with some edgy persona and yet fall back on cliches. I'm sure she'll make it incredibly far.

  • BWeaves

    Reminds me of the Sarah Michelle Gellar SNL skit about Christina Aguilera when she did that dirty video.

  • NOT what I was expecting, and also fabulous. Click and watch, folks!

  • I love her for this. My (teen) son sayeth: It's nice that some child stars recognize how unusual their situations are and how they're being exploited and turn it on its side. Good for her.

  • That is so original and brave that I almost passed out!
