Drake Bell Blasts Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga for Being "Terrible" Role Models for Fans

Drake Bell has a bone to pick with some of Hollywood's most famous A-listers.

In an interview with BuzzFeed, the former child star blasted the likes of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga setting "gross" and "terrible" examples for fans.

"I can’t stand that, with a lot of the pop stars, there’s this idea of Are you in our clique? Are you a Direction-er or are you a Belieber? Oh, you’re not in our gang? Then you’re not cool and you need to go in a hole and die,” Bell said. “I don’t understand it. And what’s worse is artists like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber don’t come out and say, ‘I love having you as my fans, but you shouldn’t be acting this way.’ They just eat it all up, and I think it’s repulsive."

According to the Drake & Josh actor, Bieber and Gaga should instead use their celebrity status to stop the hate.

"If I catch one of my fans saying something improper, a gay slur or any derogatory term, I instantly tweet directly at them and say, ‘This isn’t how we do it,’” the actor explained. “Lady Gaga, who says she’s so anti-bullying, was on [Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show] and Howard read all of these awful, awful tweets her fans had been sending him, [and] asked how she responded to her fans doing the exact antithesis of what she stands for. She said, ‘You have to understand, Howard, it comes from a place of love. They don’t want to see me get hurt.’ I couldn’t believe she didn’t take a second to address her fans and say how disgusted she was they’d do something like that. But none of them do that."

 Work to get as much money and power as possible because then you can do whatever you want and no one can say anything to you. I just think that’s a gross, awful, terrible message."

And even Bell's fellow Nickelodeon stars aren't safe. The actor also blasted Sam & Cat actress Ariana Grande in the one-on-one, telling the website that she hasn't worked very hard to get to where she is now.

"There’s just a lot of really young, entitled people,” he said. “I don’t think a lot of these young people have to work very hard. They’re found on YouTube and, boom, thrown into the studio so they think they can get anything they want. Ariana Grande is a billionaire before she’s been an artist. You have to work to be able to appreciate what you have, and what work did she ever have to do in her life?"

"Ariana Grande’s fans told Perez Hilton that he and his son needed to die and get cancer, and she just fed it. It’s disgusting."

    Drake Bell is right end of story. Some of these stars including justin bieber and lady gaga don't appreciate what they have. Ariana on the other hand actually has talent and that's why she got a record deal soo fast but she didn't work hard to get that amount of money. Drake is the only celeb who has guts to come and call people by their names, others celebs are too scared because they worry about their fame and money. They say "oh I love my fans" and "I owe it all to my fans" but deep inside they don't give a flying shit about their fans and we all know that. We've all been in a situation where when you get what you want you just automatically start saying I love you to the person that gave it to you. That's exactly how it is in Hollywood. Celebs say what you want them to hear, but underneath all they care about is fame and money, but we can't blame them, their humans and humans only think about themselves (selfish). So don't pick on drake,Paul Morris.

    I guess (unlike drake) I should provide a little proof to back up my claim that Lady Gaga has indeed gone to her fans and asked them to stop fighting with other fan bases. Remember when she was trending #promoteonlinekindness ?? If not, here's a screenshot of some of her comments http://imgur.com/GceamrE

    Drake is obviously confused (again). Lady gaga HAS come out to ask her fans to stop that kind of attitude. She even started blocking some of her fans who say nasty stuff to other twitter users. Drake should do some research before he makes such foolish statements because what he has done here is exactly what he is complaining about.
