It’s hard for a teen star to get taken seriously as an adult, after all, and McCurdy needs to stand apart from her wholesome “iCarly” and “Sam & Cat” personas. Taking a cue from Christina Aguilera‘s “dirty” phase, McCurdy jumps straight to filthy.
And by filthy, we mean disgustingly dirty. Clamato juice baths and pickle mouthwash are just the beginning needed to create the foulest pop star imaginable. Naturally, the entertainment world is ready to eat this up (although not literally, because that would be awful).
While this is a parody, its humor definitely comes from just how close this is to the truth. It’s notoriously hard for the Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan types to reinvent themselves. We can only hope that none of them decide to go McCurdy’s fake route and resort to literal trash.
Bonus bit for “Community” fans: Todd!!!
