Jennette McCurdy Confirms 'Sam and Cat' Cancellation Rumors

Jennette McCurdy opened up aboutt he cancellation of the Nickelodeon Hit Show 'Sam and Cat,' and insisted towards fans that she not be put on a pedestal as a role model.

Rumors that Nickelodeon’s hit show was destined to be cancelled have been surfacing for months now. However, the network just confirmed that the show was cancelled last week after only one season.

'Sam and Cat' was meant to run 20 episodes until Nickelodeon realized it started to become a big hit amongst the younger teen audiences.  The producers decided to order another 20 episodes after ratings kept steadily rising for the soon to be hit show.  Things seemed to be going great until rumors surfaced that Ariana Grande, McCurdy’s co-star, was making more money than her. While Grande claims this is not true, Jennette seems to believe so and even boycotted the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards this year.

Another rumor that has surfaced for the show being cancelled is McCurdy's selfies of her posing in underwear were leaded to the media, causing concern for Nickelodeon producers and parents of the children that watch the show. They may have felt that Jennette was no longer a good role model for the viewers.

In a post on Reddit, McCurdy shared a lengthy statement, clearing up her fan’s ideas of what a role model should be.  Below is a portion of her post that she made about her idea of why she believes and feels that she isn't a role model.

"I am not a role model.

I don’t claim to be, I don’t try to be, and I don’t want to be."

"There was a time when I tried to live up to the aggrandizing title, that pedestal of a thing. Maybe it wasn’t so much that I was trying to live up to it. Perhaps I thought I could and I thought I was supposed to, so I gave it my best shot."

"It’s fine, I can admit it. Back in my adolescence, I was more amiable, bubbly, and on lightly humid days, maybe even flouncy. I was role model material and then some."

"Fast forward a few years, I’ve grown up a bit (emphasis on “a bit”). I might not be any wiser, but I like to think I’m more honest."

"Now before you start thinking I’m some sort of derelict that leads a life of crime, let me clarify. I am proud of the way I live my life. I am proud of my choices. I am proud that no one can call me fake or say I don’t stand up for myself. I am proud that my friends and family would say that I’m a good person.

But in order to be thought of as a real, true role model, I believe you have to know a person and their actions, inside and out. Calling a celebrity a role model is like calling a stranger a role model. The knowledge you have of a celebrity is no more than a caricature drawn by media tastemakers specializing in selling you an image you’re dying to buy. It’s good to have heroes, but you have to look for them in the right places. They say don’t look for true love in a bar, well I say, don’t look for role models on screens."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
