“Victorious” star Victoria Justice had admitted she’s tried smoking and drinking. The beautiful Victoria revealed that she’s not perfect, and she has made mistakes. Justice also claims, however, that the harmful activities aren’t for her.
Â“IÂ’m not going to lie to you: IÂ’ve tried things. IÂ’m not some robot whoÂ’s programmed to be perfect,Â” she said. Â“IÂ’ve been to high school parties. And even if IÂ’ve had a drink, itÂ’s always in a responsible way. I did go through a phase when I wanted to try smoking, and for a minute I did. But shortly after, I just kind of realized it was gross, and I didnÂ’t like anything about it.Â”
Â“If IÂ’m at a party, IÂ’m going to dance, not huddle in some corner and smoke or sneak a drink,” Victoria Justice added. “I feel that smoking, drinking, and doing drugs are kind of selfish because you end up isolating yourself from everyone else,Â” she explained.
Â“And IÂ’ve had to make certain choices and be a lot more responsible with my life. IÂ’ve been given a huge opportunity, and I donÂ’t want to let my fans and family down.Â”
It’s great to see a teen idol who is honest. It seems, however, that if Miley Cyrus would have said the exact same thing, she’d get blasted by every media outlet around.
Does it seem like the media targets certain young stars, while others get a free pass? Either way, Victoria Justice should be applauded for her candidness.
