While being all manly in his wood working workshop, Parks and Recreation‘s Nick Offerman read tweets by some of our favourite female celebrities for Conan last night. He took tweets from the likes Amanda Bynes, Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepsen and Katy Perry. While some people might find the contrast between Offerman’s majestic beardedness and the mundane tweets jarring, it actually feels really natural too me. He’s all man of the woods and such while reading Carly Rae Jepsen’s tweet where she compares herself to Snow White. See? It all totally makes sense.
According to a Facebook thread, which has been taken down, Amanda Bynes was in flip flops and sunglasses while working out at the gym. She really shouldn’t have her hands waving up in the air like that. All I could think about while watching this video was when she’s gonna fly off the treadmill. And what song she’s listening to. My bets on ‘Scream & Shout’ by Will.I.Am feat. Britney Spears, but who knows?
Her ways may be different but it doesn’t mean she’s not getting a good work out. I mean, just look at Phoebe…
In the non-ending saga of Amanda Bynes’ new life, the celebrity tries to convince InTouch that she is not spinning out of control.
“I have no clue [why people say I’m insane]. Every time I’ve heard it, it came from an ugly person’s mouth, so I don’t care,” she said. “The only ones lying about me having a mental illness are people I don’t talk to.”
She adds that she relies on the support of her attractive group of friends: “I only have hot friends,” she says. “They have my back until I die.”
Bynes also claims that is is allergic to alcohol (which she has said in the past) and only smokes tobacco, not weed for anyone wondering. As for her next career move, Bynes hopes to do what she loves which apparently is singing and designing clothes (blerg). Not that she needs the money or anything as she told the mag she was financially set when she retired from acting at the age of 24. “I’ll design clothes and sing because I want to, not because I need the money. I love singing and I can’t wait to start working on an album.”
Um, yeah. But no one wants that.
Amanda Bynes didn’t quite go full Britney Spears circa 2007 as she shaved off half of her hair, revealing her new do on Twitter. The star cited R&B singer Cassie as the inspiration.
While I love Cassie’s hair do, Bynes, on the other hand, went from looking like a taller, blonder Snooki to um, the Barbie doll that became a victim to one of my unfortunate hair cutting schemes. For the record, I was seven-years-old when I “trimmed” one side of Barbie’s head.
Okay, fine. It’s not that bad. She kind of looks like Miley Cyrus in one blurry TwitPic:

While I also know it’s not my place, I can’t help but hope that this last year is really some sort of weird performance art piece, à la Joaquin Phoenix. She went so far and made me kind of proud that she wasn’t one of those celebrities who let fame knock her off of the rails. Oh, Amanda Bynes. The real Amanda Bynes, please come back to us soon.
Amanda Bynes tweeted a link to this bizarre video on Monday of herself as she gets ready for a night out on the town. According to the title, she’s sucking on a Sour Patch Kid candy which kind of explains the weird faces she’s making. What the sour candy doesn’t help to explain is just how bugged-eyed she looks.
Um, bring out the dancing lobsters?
If Britney Spears can survive 2007, Amanda Bynes can survive today. Can we really blame either star for their behavior with all that paparazzi pressure? Let’s step back from the tabloid haters and remember why we fell in love with Miss Bynes to begin with. The girl was born with the gift of comedy, and these vintage pics and videos prove it.
She could always get into character
Amanda Laura Bynes was born on April 3, 1986 in the greater LA area. This demure bride was one of the comedian-to-be’s first characters on Halloween 1995 when she was nine. ”I dressed up as a bride because I loved pretending to be a housewife,” she told People mag.
She wowed LA comedy clubs
Amanda started taking stand up classes at age seven at LA’s famous Comedy Store. At ten years old, she took the Laugh Factory’s 1996 comedy camp by storm with this literally laugh-out-loud routine about candy, school and…nose zits?
She was All That
Poor Harry Styles got hit in his nether regions by a shoe during One Direction’s Glasglow show last night.
An overzealous fan threw a pair of shoes on stage. The first of the pair harmlessly landed onstage while the second hit Styles right in the family jewels. Watch as Styles dramatically falls over.
No, it wasn’t Taylor Swift that threw the Keds-like shoe and as far as we know, it wasn’t a Wanted fan either. But yes, it would’ve been funny if the shoe was from Swift’s Keds footwear line because hey, SYMBOLISM!
I might as well add that I’m a little disappointed the shoe thrower didn’t aim higher. It would’ve been hilarious if Styles had a little George W. Bush ninja-like shoe-dodging skills in him.
Like a boss.
I’d also like to add that since I’m a girl, I have no idea just how painful this might be. Basically, this is how I would react:
For the record, Styles is okay.
Our beloved Amanda Bynes went off the bandwagon a couple of months ago. The former star of The Amanda Show asked Obama’s help for a DUI, smoked pot behind the wheel, and ran from cops. Now? After quitting acting for the fashion business, Bynes got a dimple piercing as seen in the photo above, which she posted on her tumblr blog. You don’t see a dimple piercing everyday but you gotta admire her for mixing things up a little. Would you ever get one?
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Harry Styles reveals which One Direction bandmate he would date and Lindsay Lohan flees from another hit-and-run.
HIT: Harry Styles reveals who he would date from One Direction
Sorry Larry fans, but Harry wouldn’t date Louis Tomlinson! Instead, Harry would want to date Liam Payne! He recently told Top of the Pop magazine, “I think I’d go out with Liam because he’s a genuine, kind-hearted boy. Someone being genuine is really important to me. I think if you were his girlfriend, he would treat you really well.” 1) Must be heartbreaking for the other three 1D members and 2) D’aww….
MISS: Lindsay Lohan flees the scene after hit-and-run
It’s cool, Amanda Bynes, I wouldn’t take Lindsay’s twitter rant too seriously especially after she got arrested for leaving a hit-and-run. Lohan reportedly hit a male pedestrian while driving her Porsche in New York City. She was later charged with a misdemeanor for fleeing but was released soon after. We can easily solve the recent spike in celebrity car accidents by taking away both Bynes’ and Lohan’s license. See, problem solved.
HIT: Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart meet post-scandal
According to US Weekly sources, Rob and Kristen are hanging out again! You team Robert die-hards can suck it because TWILIGHT IS SAVED. I do have one question though: how did they manage to avoid being seen together from the paps? I swear the paparazzi follows them 24/7. Congratulations to the two to managing to do the impossible.
MISS: Chris Zylka broken-heartily tweets about break-up with Lucy Hale
Thanks to Twitter, Chris Zylka pretty much confirmed his break-up with Pretty Little Liars star, Lucy Hale. Zylka tweeted, “”Don’t have a girlfriend. She decided she was too good.” He later apologized and said Hale was “one of the most talented people [he’s] ever know,’ and continued apologizing seven tweets later. No wonder Hale broke up with him. He’s kind of like Charlie on HBO Girls with his smothering love.
HIT: Rookie Mag tries to get President Barack Obama for their “Ask A Grown Man” video
“Ask a Grown Man” is just another brilliant idea from teen fashion maverick/Rookie Mag’s editor-in-chief/bitch-face teacher extraordinaire (She taught Jimmy Fallon last week), Tavi Gevinson. Manly stars such as Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, the Office writer and actor B.J. Novak and super producer Judd Apatow have already appeared on the web series where they give advice to teenage girls. Who else better to share their wisdom if not the Jay-Z and Beyoncé endorsed President of the United States? Go get him, Tavi. #Obama4grownman.
MISS: French tabloid ordered to turn in topless Kate Middleton photos
It must be a relief for Prince Harry to not be the only Royal caught without clothes on these days, but it’s becoming a bit of a legal nightmare for the royal family. The royal family’s lawyers recently won their suit against French tabloid, Closer, who now has to stop publishing and hand over the pictures of Kate sunbathing topless in the South of France. The photos were clearly a violation of privacy as Kate and Prince William were staying a secluded chateau. The Royals can’t seem to get a grip on the situation as a fifth publication plans to publish the photos by the end of this week. Poor Kate! She’s such a perfect example of grace, intelligence and beauty! They should just leave her alone!
Lindsay Lohan on Amanda Bynes
In the past year, Amanda Bynes was arrested for a DUI, was involved in two hit and runs and had her car impounded for driving on a suspended license. However, the moment that must have been most shameful was seeing this bitter tweet from Lindsay Lohan, who just doesn’t understand how justice is served these days.
Louis Tomlinson on Larry Stylinson and his mom
Louis Tomlinson (if it really was Louis) had a mega Twitter rant last night, getting all sensitive about Larry Stylinson conspiracy theories. Basically, non-fans hatched these ridiculous rumors ages ago that Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are in love with each other and have hired beards as girlfriends so they can stay in the closet. Louis fumed on Twitter:
Louis also took the moment to air out frustrations about verbally abusive tweets directed to his mom. We’re totally confused about why someone would bother to tweet such an insensitive thing in the first place, especially to such a sweet person! He advised the person to grow up (in harsher terms) and said the tweet sickened him. Read more…
Amanda Bynes isn’t even trying to hide the fact that she’s a terrible driver anymore and should probably be taken off the road. She was recently snapped smoking a bong behind the wheel, aimlessly rolling around LA, while on a suspended license.
Along with driving around pointlessly for several hours, she smoked a pipe in the parking lot of Mexican restaurant Baja Fresh in San Fernando Valley and Home Depot, where she picked up multi-colour light bulbs.
According to TMZ, Amanda has been charged with two hit-and-runs and various drivers have complained that she either hit them or created a dangerous situation.
Not only is Amanda endangering other people on the road, she’s setting a terrible example for fans who look up to her. So it’s no question that she should be prosecuted. That said, you can’t vilify the girl considering she probably needs help. She’s spiralling down a bad path and the big question is how do you help her?
TMZ also snapped photos of her car, which looks like it’s a mess.

We’re in love with this new tumblr page called Mugshot Doppelganger, which takes the mugshots of some of your fave celebrities and makes them look as though they were arrested in the 1920s. Usually these Photoshop jobs come out looking wonky but these are so well done we couldn’t even guess who all the celeb were (ahem, Snooki!).
Check out Lindsay Lohan above and some of the other celebs below:

You have to hand it to the girl for maintaining her sense of humour. Bynes was officially charged yesterday with a DUI after her arrest in April, and since no one is giving her break, she decided to take the pressing matter to the President of the United States.
She’s still maintaining that she doesn’t drink alcohol at all, though she’s been spotted backing into a curb while texting, holding up traffic and sideswiping another vehicle. Though that’s all hearsay by this point because, come on, did you see it with your own eyes?
The actress was arrested in Los Angeles on April 6 on suspicion of DUI and reportedly getting into a minor accident with an officer. The report indicates she was trying to pass a police car as it prepared to make a right turn and collided with the right rear panel.
On May 27 she tweeted: ”I can’t help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me. I was not in any hit and runs. I don’t drink so the DUI is false.”
After the official charges were filed yesterday she resorted to her last act of desperation by getting in touch with the White House to sort out this sordid affair. Ironically, Bynes is appearing before the exact same judge (Elden Fox) steered Lindsay Lohan through to the end of her probation.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jessica Simpson shows the world how adorable baby Maxwell is, and even Kim Kardashian loses parts of her luggage while flying.
HIT: Drake and Rihanna spotted together at a miami night club
According to US Weekly, Drake and Rihanna were getting hot and heavy with each other. While they may not be in a relationship together just yet, can we just take a moment to bask in the potential perfection of this pairing? It may not have worked out the first time, but I think Rihanna deserves a nice Canadian boy to make her happy.
MISS: Amanda Bynes can’t keep herself out of trouble
No dancing lobsters for Amanda Bynes just yet as the actress has been accused of two hit and run incidents. She later dismissed the claims via Twitter and also said she doesn’t drink. Even so, she still needs to keep her hands off her phone and eyes off her twitter account while driving.
HIT: Jessica Simpson’s baby is adorable on the cover of People Magazine
I don’t really care much for when stars pimp out their lives on the cover of tabloids (I don’t care if you lost weight!), but Baby Maxwell is as adorable as they come. Babies in general are just so cute! I want to pinch their little cheeks and watch Sesame Street with them all day. If you don’t like babies, you are probably dead because you have no heart.
MISS: Kim Kardashian accuses British Airways of stealing Read more…
Today we talk about crashing the real life Project X blowout, Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes bolting from the cops and drunken Facebook snaps being preserved with embroidery.
Amanda Bynes was a misguided rebel yesterday afternoon (twice) when she decided to bolt from a cop while he was writing her a ticket for driving while talking on her cell phone.
After pulling her over, the officer approached the car and collected her information so he could write the ticket. But Amanda apparently had better things to do so she put her foot on the pedal whizzed off before he could get her signature.
TMZ reported that the cop decided not to chase after her because she wasn’t a huge threat and he already had all her information. Later, Bynes managed to stop by the police station to sign the ticket but the police apparently aren’t going to let her off so easy for bolting.
The incident ironically came days after an unfortunate tweet that encouraged girls to live fast and die young… this, out of 13 tweets in her entire Twitter career.
Amanda Bynes has been immensely popular with the ‘tween and teen crowds since she started acting at age 10 in Nickelodeon’s “All That.”
She has remained a favourite through the years, starring on programs like “The Amanda Show,” “Rugrats” and “What I Like About You” and movies including “Big Fat Liar” and “She’s the Man.”
But Bynes, 20, has her sights set on larger roles, starting with “Hairspray,” which begins shooting in Toronto next month.
“I think I’ve been lucky enough to have a long career for someone who’s only 20,” she says. “I never wanted to be the ‘it girl.’ I just wanted to be the classy girl who does a good job and makes people laugh. I hope that I can continue working because it’s super fun.”
When she’s not preparing to play Penny in “Hairspray” ? which will also star John Travolta and Queen Latifah ? Bynes loves checking out the gossip blog PerezHilton.com.
In fact, she has become close friends with Hilton.
“I love him. Who doesn’t love Perez? He’s become a dear friend,” she says.
“He’s right on about everything and has the best sense of humour. He always finds the funniest things.”
