Space Cadets: Amanda Bynes
Up until very recently, the only thing we knew about Amanda Bynes was that she looked like she could use a bit more meat on her bones, but now we know she’s got a little bit of a strange streak.
Amanda Bynes has long been on our tv screens, if you care to remember all the way back to The Amanda Show on Nickelodeon years ago (frankly, we don’t) but it seems only recently that she’s been showing us her slightly odd side.
Funnily enough, it was around the time that she got on Twitter and Instagram that this has started happening, but that’s just coincidence, right?
It seems that in September of 2011, Bynes had her first bizarre moment that went public, when she decided to lock herself in the changing room of a shop and wouldn’t let anyone in.
She wasn’t finished with strange behaviour in 2011 however, when she apparently stripped down in a class at her local gym with little or no explanation. We wished we could have been there…for research purposes, of course.
More recently, she randomly decided to get her cheek pierced, which is of course a bit more of a strange decision, but when you need to bling it up, you need to bling it up, any place will do.
She’s also had a tough time with her landlord recently, given that he threatened her with eviction for being a ‘building nuisance’, whatever that is. It seems that she was allegedly doing too much partying for his, or her neighbours’ liking.
Then there was her Twitter episode where she tagged Barack Obama and told him to “fire the cop that arrested me” when she was pulled on a hit and run charge.
However, her most recent moment of madness was only a few days ago when she posted a picture of Jay-Z and the caption “ugly face”, which is one JOE hasn’t heard since back in the good old days of the school playground.
Despite so much strangeness in so little time, we’ve come to like our Amanda, at least she’s got a bit of character! Also there’s this picture which makes us like her a lot more.
Here’s to more strange behaviour, although it looks like she’s shut down her Twitter and Tumblr for the minute, so we might not have any updates for a while. Come back Amanda!
