Drake Bell recently sat down with BuzzFeed and the former ‘Drake & Josh’ star didn’t hold back when talking about fellow musicians Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and Ariana Grande.
Starting to say about people who were discovered on YouTube possessed an easier way to fame, he refers to will and large Bieber: “I do not think many of these young people have to work very hard. They are found on YouTube and … boom! Ariana Grande was already a billionaire even before becoming an artist. You have to work to be able to appreciate what you have, and what job she ever had to make in your life?”
It’s shocking the way he speaks of Ariana when both started on Nickelodeon – he was in Drake & Josh and she is still in Sam & Cat.
Since Drake is not a fan of Justin – as he expressed in the past – it’s no surprise that he also attacked and Beliebers in general: “I can not support this, with many pop stars, there is this idea of ‘You’re in our club? Are You a Belieber, Directioner or are you? Oh, you are not part of our gang? So you’re not legal and you need to go into the hole and die“ explains Bell.
“I do not understand it. And what’s worse is artists like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber will not run and say, ‘I love having you as my fans, but you should not act this way.’ They just eat it all, and I think it’s disgusting.” continued the singer of 27 years.
Justin, Ariana and Gaga are all big fans, but Drake says that when fans are irresponsible, the star should face them and tell them what is and is not right. “If I took my fans saying something inappropriate, one gay insult or any other offensive term, I instantly tweetaria directly to them and say, ‘That’s not how we do,’ “ explains Drake.
When talking about the importance of Ariana and Justin give fans what he believes to be visible, explains that he just tweet the same old things. “Justin Bieber just tweet, ‘Yeah, Beliebers, get hard’ when they are attacking someone. Fans of Ariana Grande told Perez Hilton that he and his son have to die and have cancer, and it only fueled it. It is shameful” said in the interview.
“We have not signed up to be examples, but we are,” he explained. “Artists like Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga have more excitement on the popular mind than a politician. They could take a stand and say, ‘This is how we should treat people’, but do not. I just think this is a gross, thick and dreadful message “ he concluded.
