Nickelodeon's Victoria Justice staying busy on Thanksgiving
In trying to recount when she was asked to perform for the legendary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Justice chirped for her mother’s input. Mom helped (answer: the summertime). Now, the only thing between Justice and a barrage of colossal inflatable balloons (and a 5 a.m. hair and makeup wake-up call) is anxiousness—especially considering the longtime television event is a household tradition.
“I’m a little nervous,” Justice said. “I’ve gotten a bunch of rehearsal in. Hopefully everything goes as planned. It’s a big deal. It’s something that we always have on during Thanksgiving. It’s a family tradition.”
Justice will be performing “Freak the Freak Out,” a new song from an upcoming episode of “Victorious,” airing on Friday. In the one-hour special episode, Jade [Elizabeth Gillies] and Cat [Ariana Grande] lose a karaoke competition because it was rigged; the girls recruit Tori [Justice] to help them get revenge.
“It was super fun,” she said. “I got to wear a prosthetic nose and be really geeky for a section of the episode.”
The music video for “Freak the Freak Out” shows Justice, who is unsurprisingly working on an album, making the rounds in a warehouse/club (an all-ages affair, we're sure) with her co-stars to … freak out; it’s been airing on the network since Saturday.
