Drake Bell is backtracking on his comments about Ariana Grande after he told BuzzFeed the singer hadn’t earned her fame. As Gossip Cop reported, the former Nickelodeon star called Grande entitled and also claimed she egged her fans on when they attacked Perez Hilton for falsely alleging she was addicted to cocaine.

But the following day, Bell backed away from his statements, posting Twitter photos of himself and Grande along with videos of her singing. The “Drake & Josh” alum wrote, “I think she is incredibly talented and one of the best female voices out there right now!!” Bell added in another tweet, “Huge fan of Ariana’s and love her voice! Her voice is levels beyond any female singer out right now!!”

When a Twitter follower called him out on saying Grande didn’t work for what she has, the actor responded, “didn’t say that about Ariana.” What do you think of Bell flip-flopping on his statements about Grande?
