Let’s Solve The Mystery Of Why Jennette McCurdy Boycotted The Kid’s Choice Awards

Jennette McCurdy attending Power Of Youth summit July 2013Magnifying glasses up and gumshoes on, my fellow pop culture detectives, because we're about to set our minds to The Case Of The Missing Jennette McCurdy.

Let me set the scene for you. Lights up on Saturday night's Kid's Choice Awards, where Jennette's Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat is about to win ‘Favorite TV Show'. The name is announced, the crowd goes wild, and Jennette's costar Ariana Grande takes the stage…alone.


And we don't have to look far, because Jennette got on Twitter and explained it away. But not entirely — just in that vague way you do on Facebook where you don't want to confirm or deny anything, but you want people to know you've been wronged. Here's what she said:

“A lot of you guys are asking why I didn’t attend the KCAs…. I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you.”

Innnnteresting! My first instinct was that this had something to do with those racy pictures that got leaked of Jeannette earlier this month, but she soon put that rumor to rest as well:

Yeah honestly. What a year she's been having already already. Sucks.

According to rumors, Nickelodeon is considering firing Jennette, presumably over the photos, and she's embroiled in a disagreement with them. How that contributed to her decision not to attend an awards show is anybody's guess, but if you get any clues, please pass them my way for evaluation.
