The world just about freaked out when Ariana Grande finally dropped her highly anticipated “Thank U, Next” music video and it was well worth the wait. Still not over all those little Easter Eggs she dropped in for her us to pick up on, if we’re being honest here. And while Ari called upon some of her former Victorious co-stars to appear in the vid like Liz Gillies, Matt Bennett, and Daniella Monet, noticeably absent was Victoria Justice. So what did she think about the vid? Well, girl has broken her silence.
As it turns out, there are no hard feelings between the 25-year-old starlets, despite any drama they had once upon a time. Victoria took to Instagram to drop a comment on one of Ariana’s posts dedicated to the music video’s release. “Congrats the video is awesome,” Victoria wrote along with the hand-clapping emoji and some hearts. Ari responded back to former co-star too, sending hearts and the prayer hands.
So while Victoria wasn’t asked to be in the music video, that doesn’t mean she can’t still be a fan! And it’s nice to see these two are on good terms. There have been rumors for years that they weren’t friends and they’ve had a rocky relationship, especially after those famous tweets circulated where the girls each were blaming the other for the end of Victorious back in 2013. See once it was announced that Ariana would be starring in the spinoff series, Sam and Cat, fans were quick to blame her for the show ending and so she replied to a fan and wrote, “Sweetheart the only reason Victorious ended is because 1 girl didn’t want to do it. She chose to do a solo tour instead of a cast tour. If we had done a cast tour Nickelodeon would have ordered another season of Victorious while Sam and Cat filmed simultaneously but she chose otherwise.” Everyone naturally assumed the one girl she was referring to was Victoria and that’s when V sounded off and wrote her own tweet that said, Some people would throw some1 they consider a friend under the bus just 2 make themselves look good. #StopBeingAPhony #IfTheyOnlyKnew.” THE DRAMA. Plus, there were rumors Victoria bullied Ariana on set, which they’ve both denied.
But since then, the girls have seen each other and everything seems to be cool. Victoria even sent the “No Tears Left to Cry” songstress love and support in the wake of the tragedy that took place at Ari’s concert in Manchester. So any drama they might’ve had is long gone and seeing these women be supportive of each other is what it’s all about!
