We weren't the only ones trying to figure out which of Ariana Grande's Victorious costars was behind the bullying she talked about in her interview with Seventeen magazine. Her Arianators, fans of the show — just about everyone wanted to know who could have made her life so unhappy.
Well, after seeing all of the negative feedback from the interview, Ariana was shocked and said she was misquoted, using her Tumblr page to finally get the truth out and stop all of the drama.
"It's my responsibility to clear up the drama today," Ariana wrote. "I was misquoted in an interview and I’ve been very upset and disappointed all day. I was asked about bullying and I thought I’d share some of my personal experiences so that I could share how I overcame it with my fans and hopefully be a help to the people who look up to me and are dealing with being bullied. However, unfortunately I was a little too vague in my interview and conclusions were drawn and fingers were pointed. "
Ariana reveals that the bullying actually came from her Broadway days, not when she was on Victorious.
"My years filming Victorious were some of the HAPPIEST of my life and that cast is family to me," Ariana continued. "(The stories I were sharing were actually from 2008 when I was on Broadway. Was an amazing experience but a tough time for me.) Please please don’t send hate to anyone. It’s undeserved. The point of answering the question in the first place was to help those of you who are dealing with bullying, not to start drama. I apologize for the commotion. Love you guys VERY much. Thank you for being here for me and for supporting me."
We're glad no one on the Victorious cast is to blame for bullying her — they always seemed so close and it's great to know they really were!
