    Though she didn’t explicitly mention Dan Schneider, Ariana Grande acknowledged the safety and concerns behind child actors working in an organization like Nickelodeon. She begins by saying working environment “needs to be made safer if kids are going to be acting” and “there should be therapists.”

    “I think parents should allowed to be wherever they want to be, and I think not only on kids’ sets. I think if anyone wants to do this, or music, or anything at this level of exposure, there should be in the contract something about therapy is mandatory twice a week or thrice a week, or something like that,” she said.

    “I think the environment just needs to be made a lot safer all around, and like I said, I’m still in real time reprocessing my relationship to it,” the singer added.
