Kelly started off by asking Ariana about the first time she ever came to L.A. as a teenager.

“The first time I came to L.A. was for my Victorious callback,” she said, “and I was so nervous, but so excited.”

She continued, “I was so young. I was 14, but I had never been here until my callback, and then my mom was like, ‘Do you think you could really do this? We’ll get a place, should be get an apartment?’”

Ariana also remembered waiting “a long time” between callbacks and spending lots of time at a hotel, prompting her mom to sign a lease on an apartment.

“Thank god,” she added of landing the Nickelodeon show, “because what if I didn’t get it and then she was like, ‘Well he have this lease for the next six months’?”
