Fans of Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande might be surprised – and disappointed – to hear that neither of the girls will ever sing on their new sitcom, Sam & Cat. And it has something to do with another popular teen sitcom that starred Miley Cyrus.
“We didn’t want to sing on the show. We had the option,” Ariana told MTV News in a recent interview. “I think we just wanted to do like a TV show because I feel like since Hannah Montana, it’s been so cool for kid’s shows to be musically driven. I don’t think there’s a show for kids out there now that doesn’t have music.”
Jennette added, “This show, I think, is about being funny and making people laugh.”
The girls might not sing on the show, but they will have lots of adventures and the besties are grateful for the chance to work together. “We were super excited. We’ve been friends for a long time, before we heard about the show idea,” Jennette said. “So I was excited to work with such a good friend.”
