Jennette McCurdy Covers 1D, Lorde’s ‘Team,’ ‘Wrecking Ball’ and ‘Santa Baby’ [VIDEOS]
It is no secret that Jennette McCurdy is a prolific tweeter. The Sam and Cat star is practically addicted to social media, as is any other 20 something. Lately, McCurdy has been showing off her amazing singing voice by adding more and more acapella covers to her sites. Just a few of her newest covers include 1D’s “Story of My Life,” Miley Cyrus' “Wrecking Ball” and Lorde’s “Team.” If you in the holiday spirit, McCurdy also posted a Vine of her singing the Christmas classic, “Santa Baby.”
It is easy to forget that Jennette McCurdy is an amazing singer, considering her iCarly character, Sam Puckett, comes off a little rough around the edges. However, McCurdy is constantly reminding her Twitter followers, by posting a series of impressive covers. One of her most recent cover videos is of 1D’s “Story of my Life.” Jennette has also bared her soul recently by covering Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Lorde’s “Team” and Rihanna’s “Stay,” just to name a few.
When McCurdy isn’t posting songs on YouTube, she is busy putting up Vines. She has even been called out in public for her Vine addiction, tweeting:
“I just got approached and asked if I was "that famous viner". I either feel terrible or great about this but I haven't decided yet.”
Despite the fact that Vines are only a few seconds long, she has still found time to sing in a few. She has managed to squeeze in a version of “Santa Baby,” as well as parody of Ariana Grande’s “Day Dreaming” called “Day Drinking.”
McCurdy has been making music for most of her life and has been recording since 2009. She specializes in the country-pop genre and has released one self titled studio album in 2012.
Among McCurdy’s other talents is her love for writing. Not only did McCurdy pen a few songs off her album but she occasionally supplies essays for major publications like the Wall Street Journal.
