Amanda Bynes Speaks Out On Bizarre Behavior: ‘I’m Not Crazy’

/ May 2, 2013

Between shaving her hair like Cassie and begging Drake to beat it up, Amanda Bynes’ behavior as of late has been questionable.

In an exclusive interview with InTouch Weekly, the former Nickelodeon princess addresses the public’s recent opinion of her.

“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,” the 27-year-old actress said. “The only ones lying about me having a mental illness are people I don’t talk to.”

And if you think that being under the influence is the reason behind her recent bizarro stints, which include getting cheek piercings and allegedly showing up to gymnastics class in a wig and fishnets, Amanda has personal health reasons that rule out the possibility. “I don’t drink. I’m allergic to alcohol,” she says. Online flicks have shown her smoking up pot but she claims her only substance of choice is tobacco.

On the plus side: her professional aspirations remain in tact. While The Amanda Show star “retired” from acting at 24, she has a certain business plan in mind. “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.”
