Drake Bell Backtracks On Ariana Grande Comments

April 3rd, 2014 8:03pm EDT
Drake Bell
It didn't take Drake Bell long to backtrack on the inflammatory comments he made in a recent interview – at least, where Ariana Grande is concerned.

In his interview with Buzzfeed concerning the attitudes of his fellow stars, Bell said, "I don't think a lot of these young people have to work very hard. They're found on YouTube and, boom, thrown into the studio so they think they can get anything they want. Ariana Grande is a billionaire before she's been an artist. You have to work to be able to appreciate what you have, and what work did she ever have to do in her life?"

Bell, who used to star in Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh, sat down with Buzzfeed for an interview promoting his upcoming album.

"I don’t understand it. And what’s worse is artists like L...

Actor Drake Bell has been ordered to pay a music producer almost $43,000 after allegedly failing to settle an invoice for songs he commissioned.

Bell reportedly agreed to a fee of $9,000 per tune, but he only paid for five of the nine he requested.

The 26 year old did not respond to the lawsuit, so a Los Angeles judge issued a default judgment in court this week - and ruled in Fields' favor....

We saw it with Drew Barrymore and then again years later with Lindsay Lohan and most recently with Mary-Kate Olsen. Current "It" stars like the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus will undoubtedly follow suit in the next few years.

They take on roles they perceive as "serious" or "artsy," they change their look to try to separate themselves from their younger image, and they often take behind-the-scenes hybrid titles...
