The "new" Amanda Bynes, complete with blonde hair extensions, cheek piercings, and heavy eye make-up, is a far cry from the goofy girl we knew and loved on Nickelodeon's "All That" and "The Amanda Show."
The former child star is back in the limelight, most recently for her bizarre "getting ready" video (below), titled "I'm Sucking On A Sour Patch Kid Listening To Music Getting Ready For Tonight :D" that she posted on Twitter April 15.
The video wasn't the first social media post that has caught the eye of the media lately. Bynes posted a lengthy tweet on April 10, fueling the fire for media outlets and reporters such as Perez Hilton, Complex Magazine, E! News, and apparently "every other news source who says [she's] doing something 'wrong'." Check out the official tweet and extended full post:
I'm suing every blog, every magazine, every news source that's saying I'm doing anything wrong "erratic behavior"... twitpl.us/t/cfT— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) April 10, 2013
I'm suing every blog, every magazine, every news source that's saying I'm doing anything wrong "erratic behavior" is not me! I'm suing In Touch, Us Weekly, Perez Hilton for hiring paparazzi who follow me then take the worst photos with the worst angles. I'd like to put up their worst photos on my twitter until they only start putting up my twitter photos when writing a story when there is NO story, just an awful photo posted with instead of a caption, they say I have erratic behavior when I do NOTHING wrong. There's NOTHING with my life, other than you putting up awful candid photo after photo. I'm working out, it's hard getting in shape with an eating disorder. Please follow me on twitter then look forward to be sued if you if say I have erratic behavior or am living my life wrong in anyway.
If you need a quick reminder of the funny chick that we '80s and '90s babies grew up with, take a look at the clip of "The Amanda Show" below.
