All y’all can chill out about Sam & Cat star Jennette McCurdy’s sexy selfie scandal — even her Nickelodeon co-star Ariana Grande didn’t think it was a big deal. In fact, she sort of loved it! The rising R&B star broke her silence this week on the controversial topic, and she was very outspoken in her pal’s decision to take it off.

Ariana stopped by San Francisco’s 99.7 NOW! radio station this week while promoting her new hit single “Problem” with Iggy Azalea. Hosts Fernando and Greg got the pint-sized diva to weigh in on the scandal.

“It was hot,” Ariana responded. “Who cares?”

Truth, lady! We like the way you think. And she had even more positive things to say about the scandalous pics.

“When I saw those pictures come out… it was on Perez or something,” Ari continued, adding, “I was like — it was so funny because I should have been shocked – but I was like, ‘Work, OK? Work!’”

Not only did Ariana love Jennette’s photos — saying, “She looked good!” — she also thought everyone really overreacted about the whole thing, pointing out that she had her undies and bra on. “It is not like she was nude. It was tasteful,” she explained. “If you look like that, you’ve got to make light of it.”

Speaking of Jennette and Ariana, there’s sadly still no word on a second season of Sam & Cat. “We don’t know anything about it,” Ari admitted. “But I am grateful for the fans that have supported it from the beginning. It is not in my hands at this point.”

Fingers crossed Nick and the girls can work it out! We love this friendship, on- and off-screen!
