Drake Bell Backpedals on His Ariana Grande Diss, Praises Her on Twitter
Looks like someone's trying to take his foot out of his mouth. After Drake Bell openly dissed fellow Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande, he's now trying to backpedal his way out of the mess with constant praise and, of course, denial.
In case you missed it, the 27-year-old actor told BuzzFeed, "There's just a lot of really young, entitled people. 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?"
Now, he's whistling a far different tune. In a case of MAJOR sucking up, here's what he has to say:

Umm, if he didn't say that, then shouldn't he sue for libel or something? Pretty sure he's just trying to get himself out of hot water but whatever. Keep on trekking, Drake.
Have you heard about Ariana Grande's new tattoo?
