Miranda Cosgrove: “My Parents Are Kind of Strict!”

8 Jul

She may be living a “dream come true,” but iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove still has to follow her parents’ rules like any other teen.

“They are kind of strict,” 15-year-old Cosgrove told PEOPLE at the Times Square Virgin Megastore where she was signing copies of her debut album, iCarly (Music from and Inspired by the Hit TV Show), on Tuesday. “I have to clean my room and stuff like that. And I have been grounded before, unfortunately.”

When it comes to learning how to drive, she’s also no exception to the rule – anxious for the next six months to pass to get behind the wheel of a car.

“I tell my parents I want to learn how to drive all the time,” she said. “Every time they go to the grocery store or something they are probably going to run away because I want to drive.”

And she expects to take drivers’ education as well as get some help from her dad. “He may yell at me … but hopefully it will go well.”

Cosgrove, who’s been acting since three, also admitted her mom “comes with me everywhere,” but feels like “the luckiest girl in the world.”

“As long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to sing and act so for me able to do what I’m doing is so cool,” she said. “It’s definitely a dream come true.”

Cosgrove also spends her hard-earned cash like any other teen. “Recently I got a brand new laptop and the iPhone just came out,” she said. “So I got that.”

As for her biggest celebrity crush, it’s still undecided for the Drake & Josh star: “It’s between Orlando Bloom and Chris Brown … I can’t pick which one.”

Our parents are kind of strict too!

    LOL.. these people are so mean. ok she doesnt mean that there mean to her she means that they are strict in a good way. She isnt trying to say that the punish her alot so yea. My parents are the same. They care about me so they always make sure im being good, making sure who i hang out with is a good kid, and making sure my grades are good. They just want to make sure that I stay me and I dont get bad influences by kids at school so I’m glad I have them. My mom is like my best friend I can tell her everything. OOh yea Miranda I want to be an actress just like you so I have been looking up your info about your agentcy and stuff and I can find anything but I’m going to keep trying. I’m a huge fan Miranda keep up the good work, bye:]

    Hey Miranda Cosgrove I don’t know what kind of guys you’re into considering I am a guy I’m only fourteen but my parents wouldn’t care if I dated a 15yr old girl. I live in Toronto and I’m a Black Belt in Tea Kwon Do and when it comes to muscle I’m good at that I’m very strong for my age I mean I’m not the hulk or anything but I’m strong. If I was your boyfriend I’d be very nice to you and I’d probably be like a body guard for you I wouldn’t let anyone mess with you and if they did they’d say goodbye to their legs because I’d put them in the hospital for months unless they’re armed with a gun than I’m sorry I don’t want to get shot but if they have a knife than I could handle that as long as I pay attention to what they’re about to do. Don’t get me wrong but you’re very attractive and thats not really what I find so interesting about you. Oh and I do have a crush on you I wish you could come to Toronto oh and I’m not asking but you wouldn’t happen to have msn would you if you do don’t tell your parents but I must have your msn I’m so desperate to just meet you or talk to you on the Internet.

    every one thinks that cosgrove will read these coments in which i think . If you think she does than maybe not . Like regular guys say to ask her out , she famous.So she might not like those type of guys.SORRY IF I HAD OFEN YOU ,OK PUT I JUST SAYING IT. (it is a joke-sorry)

  25. Maddie Rampton July 24, 2009 at 10:05 pm #

    U guys should leave her alone I mean I’m friends with her and she hates her fans always contacting her and asking her out and a whole bunch of crap it’s pretty sad and I feel bad for her. 😦 infact u guys can bitch to me about it and pretend I’m her she won’t be alive forrever and I don’t think she wants to be chased and hiding from her fans and u all should think about this and think of how you would feel if u were in her life always hiding and being chased by fans so you all should have sympathy for her.

    Sighned maddie.

    Hi I am a fan of Miranda. I like the show she acted in : I Carly. I watched the show on Disney channel. Actually, in the show her name is Carly, and I think it is a nice name. This website is excellent as it shows how strict het parents are . Unfortunately, my parents are as strict as her parents too!!
