Drake Bell appears to have had a change of heart after dissing Ariana Grande hardcore in a recent interview.
Bell came under fire for calling out the “really young, entitled people” in Hollywood these days, before mentioning his fellow Nickelodeon star.
“Ariana Grande is a billionaire before she’s been an artist,” he told BuzzFeed. “You have to work to be able to appreciate what you have, and what work did she ever have to do in her life?”
Then on Wednesday, Bell began posting videos of “The Way” singer, at one point writing, “Ariana Grande damn if only I could sing half this good!!”
The publicity might help the young star sell records. Along with posting photos of himself with Grande, Bell has also been plugging his new album, “Ready Steady Go,” on Twitter.
Grande has stayed silent about the whole controversy, as her Nickelodeon show “Sam & Cat” faces reports of cancellation amidst rumors of behind-the-scenes drama involving her co-star, Jennette McCurdy.
