Victoria, 30, and Ariana, 29, portrayed high schoolers Tori Vega and Cat Valentine on the hit Nickelodeon series from 2010 to 2013, alongside Liz Gillies, Avan Jogia, Daniella Monet, Leon Thomas III, and Matt Bennett.
And the rumors that Victoria and Ariana didn’t get along during their time on the show started swirling all the way back when they were still filming it.
The video featured the Victorious cast being asked which member sings the most outside of filming. After the group largely agreed on Ariana and Liz, Victoria quickly interjected, saying, “I think we ALL sing” — a comment that has since turned into a hilarious meme.
Shortly after this clip went viral in 2017, Victoria addressed the drama, tweeting, “I think we ALL have better things 2 do than dredging up 7 yr old non-existent drama. That said, Im kind of excited to finally be a meme.”

Three years after that now-viral Popstar interview was published, Ariana seemingly claimed that Victoria was the reason behind Victorious’s end.
Posting on her ask.fm account in February 2013, Ariana alleged that the Nickelodeon series had been scrapped because a mystery member of the group had opted to go on a solo tour instead of a cast one.
“The only reason Victorious ended is because 1 girl didn’t want to do it,” she wrote. “She chose to do a solo tour instead of a cast tour.”
“If we had done a cast tour Nickelodeon would have ordered another season of Victorious while Sam & Cat filmed simultaneously but she chose otherwise,” she added, referring to her subsequent Nickelodeon series with Jennette McCurdy. “I'm sick of this bs.”
Given that Victoria went on tour that summer, several fans quickly guessed that Ariana had been referring to her. And before long, Victoria seemingly hit back herself.
“Some people would throw some1 that they consider a friend under the bus just 2 make themselves look good. #StopBeingAPhony #IfTheyOnlyKnew,” she tweeted.
However, in recent years, things have appeared completely fine between Victoria and Ariana. In fact, Ariana even told an Instagram user who’d poked fun at the “I think we ALL” meme to “shut the fuck up” in 2020, seemingly putting the entire thing to rest.
