Jennette McCurdy Explains Why She Skipped the Kids' Choice Awards 2014

Many fans were wondering why Jennette McCurdy was missing from the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday (March 29) and now she is speaking out on why she was not there.

The 21-year-old actress, who gained stardom on iCarly, was nominated for Favorite TV Actress for her work on the spinoff series Sam & Cat. Her co-star Ariana Grande ended up taking home the award.

“A lot of you guys are asking why I didn’t attend the KCAs…. I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me,” Jennette said on Twitter. “I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you.”

“My previous tweet has nothing to do with pics leaked. oh you guys lol,” Jennette added. “It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me. That’s all. Thanks for the love. <3"

    Stephen Kramer Glickman announced on Facebook that he also watched the KCAs from home. “I also wasn’t invited to the KCA’s because I also had photos leaked also of me wearing lingerie also as well. #KCAs2014 “

    I don’t know what happened but I really feel bad for Jennette. She took private pics that were meant for someone and it’s not like was completely nakid in them. She was showing as much as if she was in a swimsuit at the beach or pool instead it was lingerie. Now if she was nakid in revealing and sexual poses that would be different. But she wasn’t. I think people should give her a break. She is 21 by the way. And that’s when she took the pics. She’s not a kid or teenager like her character. In the Jennette vs. Nickelodeon ‘fight’ I’m on Team Jennette!

  • Elle

    @Maria: She ran her mouth off about how terrible her ex was at kissing and said really nasty things about him. If he leaked them, I don’t feel sorry for her. You can’t just treat people any type of way. She should do what that Sprouse kid did and just own it. You took them, admit it, and just say I’m grown, now leave me alone. But I’m not gonna treat her like a victim because she said those nasty things in that interview.

  • Ellice

    @Maria: I get what your saying but the problem is even though shes 21 she is on a kid/teen show and young people look up to her so if shes seen as a role models , which she is for teenagers then she should be or smart enough to not get caught whether her pics were leaked or not your taking a risks by just sending them anyway

  • OK

    YEP I believe you *rolls eyes*

  • Not Today

    if she didn’t go because she had her reasons and they had nothing to do with the pictures then she shouldn’t feel the need to explain on why she didn’t go in the first place so
    …………………………………………………………………………………….Don’t believe her

  • Looselipz

    Are these kids really so dumb to think racy punctures of themselves taken on their phones would remain private…..if you live in a glass house…expect to be seen.
    That said, what’s the big deal? She wasn’t naked. Kim and her young sisters pose near naked every day it seems…

  • m

    She did this a few years ago when she didn’t win while on ICARLY. That went on for about a week. Time to grow up and make her bed, she’s the one who slept in it with who knows.

    I wish Jennet was there :’(

  • offtheproperty

    She’s being persecuted for saying what she thinks about race.

  • offtheproperty

    @Elle: You don’t think people should be able to say what they think about things, do you? Do you think we should prevent people from saying what they think about things by threatening them with isolation and persecution? Do you think people should go through life afraid to say what they think about things — afraid to have freedom of conscience — because people like you will call them names and ruin their careers, their livelihoods, their lives? You and obama agree about that.

  • Not so fast

    @Not Today: I think she felt the need to explain because she missed honoring Dan Schneider for the first Nickelodeon lifetime achievement award. It was very obvious to see who was missing, especially since she still works for the network.

  • Alisson

    Not surprised at all, all this kids networks are disgusting, the only see kids as a dollar bills, but when the are no longer “usefull” they dump them like a pice of crap.

    I guess the worst is Nick, cos i remember Vanessa was still in HSM after her pics got leaked.

  • chris

    Thats what she gets for dating a black guy

  • a mom

    I don’t think she isn’t owning her actions. Kids follow her twitter, maybe she isn’t saying everything because of them. The fact is those child actors get used up terribly and there are ‘blind items’ all the time about them. There was at least one horrifying if true one about Jennette. And there are several about what a perv that producer is.*tweens and feet?!? the real reason Ariana uses that crazy voice?* So many it’s a wonder that guy isn’t in JAIL. I suppose if there is enough money to be made everyone looks the other way, even parents.
    As far as the photos, she is going to have to live with those photos. But, she is an adult in them, so WHAT. Maybe this is a teaching moment to have with your children depending on their age and if they’ve found out about them. Look at what happened to “Sam”… You may “love” someone now but in a year guess what people can do when they get mad at each other.” It’s an important conversation nowadays, much as you don’t want to have to have it.

  • Diana

    Honestly, this whole thing stinks to me. Everyone who is involved with Ariana Grande somehow falls in to a world full of shit and no fan seems to see or understand the connection. Clearly, the same way Ariana ruined Victorious, she’s managing to ruin Sam & Cat, all the while making herself look innocent. I truly believe that Jennette’s pictures have nothing to do with why she didn’t show up to KCAs. Ariana is everyone’s sweetheart for no reason and Nickelodeon sits back while she takes a steamy crap on everyone who gets in her way. First Victoria, now Jennette. I can’t believe people don’t see this.

  • Diana

    @chris: You are a disgusting human being.

  • Kel

    @Diana: What do you mean she did wrong to Victoria. All I read from Ariana interview was that she sugeested Victoria put her down once.

  • keN

    . . . . been a McCurdy ‘fan club’ member since season one.
    (long before Twitter, Facebook, Vine’s or Sam and Cat).
    If Nick want’s to play this way,, so be it. me? . . teamMcCurdy,.for life!

  • Joey Chief

    @Kel: Well what you read was wrong. Victoria Justice never put anyone down and Ariana Grande didn’t put anyone down either. Both of their management teams confirmed that

  • James

    @Kel: Ariana Grande has since confirmed that her comment in that interview was taken out of context and she was talking about her broadway experience. Not her victorious experience.

  • Emma

    Sam & Cat is terribly written. Since her music career is going so well Ariana would probably be relieved if the show were cancelled.
    When Jennette didn’t show up I wondered about the blind item gossip.
    If it was about money I don’t think being absent in protest does any good.
    Miranda Cosgrove wasn’t there either.
