*** JennetteMcCurdy signed to a rival record label because she wanted to sing CountryMusic rather than getting pushed into a pop career. As a result, Nick won't let her sing on ''iCarly'' or promo her music. The closest she came to singing was rapping in an ''iCarly''/''Victorious'' {{crossover}}, and the closest they came to promoting her was a short excerpt from her first single when Jennette expected the entire song. It caused her to lash out on {{Twitter}} against Miranda and Victoria by retweeting and responding to people saying she was being screwed and was a better singer than the other two girls.
