Andre Drummond on iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy: “We’re Still Talking”
There are always two sides to every story.
If you believe McCurdy’s side, Drummond came at her hard, she entertained him just for giggles, thought he was a weirdo, bad kisser and she broke up with him in a week (you can listen to part of her thoughts below).
Drummond had a slightly different take when he spoke to ESPN The Magazine.
The Mag: You gave us a romance for these modern times, using social media to garner the affection ofiCarly actress Jennette McCurdy. What spurred you to pursue her?
Drummond: It started as a joke with a childhood friend – iCarly was our show, and my friend and I had a thing for Jennette and Miranda Cosgrove. We’d joke about it on Twitter, and Jennette caught wind of it. Turned out she was interested enough to talk to me.
The Mag: It began with you expressing your #WomanCrushWednesday feelings for her. She later wrote in The Wall Street Journal that she found it “gutsy and flattering.” Very gutsy, dude. You weren’t worried about the ribbing?
Drummond: Nah, man. I still have time to be a kid. But I didn’t actually think anything would come of it, to be honest.
The Mag: What’s your relationship status now?
Drummond: Everything is cool. We’re focusing on work and still talking to each other.
Maybe Drummond is just trying to save face or maybe iCarly doesn’t want people to know the relationship was more serious than it was.
Whatever the case, the lesson to be learned here, is do your Twitter pimpin in private.
