Victoria Justice just solved “a lifelong mystery” about signed fan mail for one TikTok user.

On July 11, Justice, 31, posted a TikTok response to creator Matt Tighe and confirmed that a signed photo his mom gave to him was actually autographed by her.

In his original TikTok video posted on May 12, Tighe revealed that he was nine years old when season 2 of Zoey 101 premiered on Nickelodeon and “Victoria was my first celebrity TV crush.” He then showed off a signed photo of Justice that read “Matt, you’re awesome!! Thanks for the support!”

“To this day, I have no clue if this is real or not,” he continued. “As an adult I’ve been begging my mom to give me an answer if that is a real signed piece of fan mail from Victoria Justice, but she keeps saying yes and honestly, I just don’t believe her.”

Tighe then shared screenshots of Justice’s signature found online and shared his doubts. He even revealed that he wanted to bring the photo to Nickelodeon when he worked at the studio and ask Justice in person but “I lost my opportunity.”

Tighe just finally got his answer. “I did sign that picture for you,” Justice confirmed in her response video. “Although my signature has evolved over the years.”

Her video then showed a note written by the Victorious actress that said “Matt you’re still awesome!! This is proof that your mom’s NOT a liar” and was signed with her current signature. Justice then ended the video with the advice to “always trust your mom.”

Justice also posted the video on Instagram and wrote in the caption “video really made me smile. Hope this brings you some clarity 😉p.s. tell your mom I say hi 🫶🏻 (also, that photo lol 💀).”

Tighe later posted his reaction to Justice’s response on TikTok and said he “cannot believe my childhood crush has responded to this.”

Tighe then showed himself calling up his mom and apologized “for doubting you.” His mom responded “I told you!”

“I thought maybe somebody else did it,” his mom admitted on the call. “I mailed into [a fan mail address]. I didn’t send money and I think I wrote a note and said ‘my son’s a fan or something’ and then got the [photo] back.”

“I feel so much better now,” she concluded on the phone call.

The singer-actress, who is teaming up with Arm & Hammer for its Power Sheets Laundry Detergent launch, opens up to PEOPLE exclusively about her career's journey and the lessons she's learned along the way.



Victoria Justice became a household name as a teenager, courtesy of her roles on popular Nickelodeon shows Zoey 101 and Victorious. Along with starring in films, she was also building a career as a singer-songwriter, releasing her debut single "Gold" in 2013, outside of her musical efforts on Victorious.

But the former child star — who is currently teaming up with Arm & Hammer for its Power Sheets Laundry Detergent launch — became more selective with the work she sought out post-Nickelodeon. She starred on MTV's Eye Candy, Fox's televised The Rocky Horror Picture Show special and a string of films, including last year's Netflix thriller The Tutor, opposite Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp. However, her music career took a grinding halt.

"I definitely took a break from music. I had a deal that just wasn't working out anymore ... for a lot of reasons. And so, I asked to be out of that deal," Justice tells PEOPLE exclusively.

She continues, "I think I'd been so busy also for so much of my younger life, that it was kind of nice after all of that was kind of over to take some time to just focus more on what it is I want to do, slow down in certain ways and just kind of be more selective about what I want to do and when I want to do it."

As Justice embarks on her musical comeback, she has taken control and carved out a new path for herself.

"I think music is always going to be a part of me, and who I am, and what I do. So I think even during that time when I wasn't actively making music and in the studio as much, I'm always thinking about music," the "Too F*ckin' Nice" singer, who is now an independent artist, explains. "I'm always writing down ideas on my phone, song titles and melody ideas, and [sharing them in] my voice memos. So it's always a part of me. But I think even those years when I wasn't making music, even those life experiences, that all comes into play into the music now. I also think at the end of the day, music is such a personal thing for me."

Justice believes that for her to "emote a song properly or to really sell a song, it has to feel authentic" to her. "I feel like now, I'm really in a place where I feel like my music, it feels very authentic. I feel like I'm saying the things that I want to say. I feel like I'm expressing myself exactly the way that I want to, and it's just been really fun to make the music that I want to," she shares.

At 31, the Fun Size actress is "still learning" many lessons about life. "But I think as I get older, the more I appreciate the sentiment of just, maybe don't sweat the small stuff," she says.

"I feel like at the end of the day, there's so many little life stresses or even big life stresses or things that can go wrong or things where you're like, 'Oh, I didn't didn't see things going that way,' or, 'I thought that this would've turned out differently,' or whatever," she continues. "But I feel like at the end of the day, the most important thing is your health and the health of my family, and the people that I love. And so to me, everything else is just kind of small stuff."

Although Justice is in a completely different phase of both her personal and professional lives, her roots in child stardom are still deep. She's even maintained close friendships with her former Zoey 101 and Victorious castmates.

Even though she couldn't participate in last year's Paramount+ Zoey 102 movie because it "didn't work out timing-wise" for her, Justice says: "I was supporting them. I was watching the movie when I came out. I was texting Jamie [Lynn Spears] and the rest of the cast."

"We all had a group chat, and I was just so excited for everyone," she continues. "I went to the premiere thing that they had in L.A., and it was really nice to reconnect with the girls and with some of my old cast members."

As for the Victorious crew, "we all have a group chat that we'll pop in on sometimes and chat about stuff," she shares.

"That's always fun when that goes off, and gets really active, and we're all chiming in," she adds. "It's like old times, which is really cute. But yeah, they're all great. We're all due for a reunion, for sure."

Beyond singing and acting, Justice has made it a priority to align herself with endeavors that are authentic to her. So, when she partnered with Arm & Hammer for the launch of its Power Sheets Laundry Detergent — a product that eliminates the mess and non-environmentally friendly aspect of plastic bottled detergent — it was a no-brainer for many reasons.

"Arm & Hammer has been around forever. I feel like they're such a well-known and well-trusted brand. I've been using their toothpaste since I was a kid. It's the only brand that I use, [even for] laundry detergent as well," she explains. "When I found out they were coming out with Power Sheets, I was like, 'Oh, this is great.' "

"I try to live a somewhat environmentally conscious lifestyle," she continues. "The fact that the power sheets come in this recyclable box, that there's no more plastic bottle waste, you don't have to lug around a heavy bottle. there's no more drippy mess."

Justice adds, "I really feel like in the future, we're all just going to be using Power Sheets. I don't think plastic bottles are even going to be a thing anymore for laundry detergent."

In the meantime, Justice is going to continue enjoying life, which has been filled with lots of "exciting" endeavors.

"I went to the Cannes Film Festival. It was so exciting. My first time going. I just had an amazing time. It was so much fun. I got to dress up and wear beautiful gowns and do all the things. It was just an absolute whirlwind. And now I'm home, and I have a song coming out," she says, referencing her song "Hate the World Without You (Maddy's Song)," which is about her younger sister Madison Grace. "There's lots of exciting things going on."

Welcome to the very first episode of Nice Talk! To kick things off, Nikki Ogunnaike is sitting down with Marie Claire cover star Victoria Justice to talk all things money, power, and style. If you’re like us, you became a fan of Justice in the early 2000s when she landed her breakout role as Lola Martinez on Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101. She went on to star in her own show, Victorious, at the age of 17, which allowed her to live her dreams of acting and singing at a young age. After taking a short break from the spotlight, she’s now ready to dive back in—only this time, she’s writing and releasing music independently. In this episode, Justice shares how she learned to step into her power even as a child actor, how her music and fashion tastes have evolved over the years, and what challenges she’s facing head-on as a newly independent artist.

"I recognized my power," Justice says on the debut episode of 'Marie Claire' podcast "Nice Talk."


Welcome to Nice Talk, hosted by Marie Claire Editor in Chief Nikki Ogunnaike. Each week, Nikki will sit down with fascinating women—entertainers, entrepreneurs, creators, athletes, and changemakers—to discuss money, power, and style. “Well-behaved” women have long been discouraged from speaking on these topics—style should be effortless, and conversations about money or power aren’t “proper,” “ladylike,” or “nice.” But Nikki's definition of a Nice Talk is one where all parties walk away feeling empowered. You can listen to Nice Talk with Nikki Ogunnaike on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.


Even as a child star surrounded by adults on the set of Nickelodeon's Victorious, Victoria Justice was unafraid to advocate for herself.

On the debut episode of Marie Claire's podcast Nice Talk with Nikki Ogunnaike, Justice recalls how she gained the confidence to speak up for herself while starring in Victorious.

"Even though I was young and I was in a world predominantly surrounded by adults, I think I recognized my power," says Justice, who appears on the cover of Marie Claire's music issue.

The singer and actress explains that she had a strong support system she could model herself after. "I had a lot of guidance in my life at that point, and I also have a very strong mother who isn't afraid to speak up," said Justice, who also appeared on Nickelodeon's Zoey 101 before leading her own show.

So when it came time to be first on the call sheet in Victorious—in which Justice played an aspiring singer attending a performing arts high school during a three-season run from 2010-2013—she felt empowered to talk about how she was "being treated."

Justice recalls, "I realized that even though I am a teenager, I still know what I'm talking about. I'm not an idiot. I have a voice and, respectfully, I'm going to let you know how I feel. And if I feel like I don't like the way that I'm being treated, or whatever it may be, I'm going to voice that."

The former child star shares that both having the proper guidance and her experience on Victorious has continued to impact how she carries herself in the industry today, especially as she pursues a career as an independent musician.

"I think that's trickled over into the way I am now," the performer says. "I definitely do advocate for myself. I'm not afraid to speak up."

She continues, "I feel like I need something different or I don't like the way things are going or if something just isn't working, I think it's important to always say something. It's like the squeaky wheel gets greased at the end of the day. Like, you can't be afraid to just ask at least or speak up for yourself. Because if you're not going to, then like who is?"

Victoria Justice hinted at what she discusses in her Victorious and Zoey 101 group chats in an exclusive E! News interview, sharing that both threads are “very fun and silly.”

Victoria Justice is giving us the 411 on 101.

The Nickelodeon alum shared that she still keeps in touch with her costars from Victorious and Zoey 101 in separate group chats, revealing that both TV shows’ threads are very “active.”

“We’re all just going back and forth,” Victoria told E! News in an exclusive interview May 23. “It’s very fun and silly.”

The 31-year-old recalled one of her most recent times catching up with castmates Elizabeth Gillies, Avan Jogia and Daniella Monet in the Victorious chat, where they were “just talking about all kinds of stuff.”

But when it’s not active, it’s only because it can be challenging to coordinate with everyone’s schedules.

“It’s hard because everyone’s busy living their own lives,” Victoria explained. “People are living in different states, so I don’t get to see everyone as often as I’d like to. But it’s nice when we can all come together in the group chat.”

Those sentiments also extend to her Victorious costar Ariana Grande, whom Victoria denied having a feud with back in April.

Reaffirming that there is “nothing to” the bad blood rumors, she insisted to E!, “I love that entire cast. I love everyone from that show, and that’s really all it is.”

And now that Victoria’s set the record straight on the past, she’s looking forward to all of the exciting new developments in her future, which include her new single “Raw,” a guest role on the forthcoming reboot Suits: L.A. and a partnership with ARM & HAMMER to promote their Power Sheets Laundry Detergent.

“I’ve been using Arm & Hammer products since I was an actual child,” Victoria said. “I love the brand; I trust the brand.”

Noting that she tries to “lead an environmentally conscious lifestyle,” she added, “The fact that you don’t have to lug around a heavy bottle anymore, and there’s no drippy mess—you can just rip a sheet and throw it in and do laundry that way—it makes laundry so much more fun and so much easier.”

Nickelodeon and Victorious alum Victoria Justice is breaking her silence on Dan Schneider following the docu-series Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV.

In a new interview, Justice recalls her “complex” relationship with Schneider and feels she’s owed an apology.

“Something that was very evident in the documentary is that Dan had a very large ego,” Justice told Marie Claire. “And sometimes that ego clouded his better judgment and affected the way he treated people, and there were times I felt like I was being treated unfairly.”

Justice says that nothing sexual ever happened with Schneider she does recall some moments that “were in poor taste.” After watching the docuseries, Schneider said he owed people an apology, and to that, Justice said, “I would say I’m definitely one of the people on that list.”

The Fun Size star says she has not been in contact with Schneider since leaving Nickelodeon aside from a handful of virtual and in-person reunions with the casts of Zoey 101 and Victorious.

“I’m not condoning any of his behavior,” she said. “At the end of the day, my relationship with Dan is a very complex one: I met him when I was 12 years old, and he’s the person that gave me this big break. He completely changed my life.”

She continued, “Most likely I wouldn’t be here where I am today if it weren’t for him, and for him seeing something in me. For that I will always be grateful. After watching his apology, I think he recognizes that he did a lot of things wrong, and I think if he could step back into a time machine, he would do a lot of things differently.”

Justice follows a series of former Nickelodeon stars opening up about their time working with Schneider. Most recently All That alum Lori Beth Denberg claimed Schneider showed her pornography and initiated phone sex.

In a statement to Deadline, Dan Schneider called Denberg’s claims “wildly exaggerated and, in most cases, false.”

Schneider admits to having “made mistakes and exhibited poor judgment as a leader” at the early stages of his career, adding, “If I did that with respect to Lori Beth, I sincerely apologize to her. But I cannot apologize for things I did not do.”

The “RAW” singer opened up about her famous roommate during an interview with SiriusXM earlier in April.

Victoria Justice and Peter Weber go way back!

In a clip shared to SiriusXM’s TikTok account on April 19, the Trust actress, 31, opens up about what her living situation was like when she first moved to Los Angeles with her mom. Justice revealed the Bachelor star, 32, was actually her roommate at the time.

Referring to the fan-favorite reality dating show, she says, “I think my friend Peter Weber is on that show. Yeah, he was also the Bachelor. Him and I actually, when I first came out to L.A. with my mom, he came out with his mom.”

“The four of us lived together in a two-bedroom apartment in Studio City. I ended up staying out here and they went back. We lost touch for a while and then I was watching The Bachelorette one night and I see Peter come on screen. And I’m like, ‘Hold on!’ I’m like, ‘Whoa, what’s happening?’”

She then adds that she was around 11 years old when she first arrived in the city to fulfill her acting and singing dreams.

Of Weber, she continues: “And then he ended up being the Bachelor. I was like, ‘What are our lives?’ Crazy.”

While the news that Justice and Weber were once roommates may come as a fun shock to fans, the “RAW” singer has previously made it known that the two are longtime friends.

In a February 2020 Instagram post, Justice shared a photo of her posing beside the United Airlines pilot.

She wrote in the caption: “So great catching up with you today @pilot_pete ! For those of you who watch The Bachelorette, I’m sure you know Peter. We’ve been friends since I was 9 back in Florida & our moms are good friends (so let’s not start any crazy rumors ha).”

“We all haven’t seen each other in years & it was so much fun catching up & reminiscing,” she continued. “I still have no idea how the show ends! Can’t wait to seeeeee.”

Victoria Justice won’t forget her first day on the job.

The former Victorious star talked about shooting her first sex scene in the upcoming crime drama Depravity while visiting SiriusXM Hits 1 LA with Tony Fly and Symon.

“My first day on set though, I had my first ever sex scene, which was like, I’m like, ‘Really guys? We’re gonna schedule this for the first day? Cool. Thanks for that,’” Justice recalled.

Justice said the scene was not a pleasant experience. “It is uncomfortable,” she said. “I was really nervous. I was actually very, very nervous about it, and totally anxious about the entire situation and I was like, ‘Did I make the wrong choice? I don’t know if I should do this.’”

Justice said a talk with the director eased her worries.

”I had a lot of faith and trust in our director, Paul Tamasy, and he made me feel very comfortable about it and he was like, ‘Listen, I’ll show it to you beforehand. If you don’t like it, we’ll change it, whatever,’” she said. “I think sometimes people think like filming sex scenes or anything like an intimate scene that it’s like really sexy… [but] there’s a bunch of random dudes in the room breathing and watching you.”

The actress added that her scene partner also helped minimize any discomfort. “The actor I was working with, we were friends and well, friends as much as we could be,” she said. “We barely knew each other because it was the first day of filming. But he was a super nice guy and made me feel very safe and was very polite and respectful, so it went well and it’s very tasteful, and yeah. It’s good.”
