Drake Admits The Amanda Bynes Tweets Are Weird
Over the past year, Amanda Bynes went after a lot of seemingly random people on Twitter. From Barack and Michelle Obama to Rihanna, she cast her net extremely wide, but there was one subject she continued to return to: Drake. Initially, the rapper was very hesitant to offer any comments related to her combination of personal attacks and over the top praises. During a recent interview, however, he changed his mind and opened up a bit.
Hereís what the musician told XXL Magazine when asked about the former All That starís random obsession with himÖ
ĒI donít even know who that is doing that or what thatís about. If that is her, I guess itís a little weird and disturbing. Itís obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether itís her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.Ē
Bynesí bizarre fascination with the rapper began in March when she caused Twitter to almost explode by randomly saying she wanted Drake to murder her vagina. In the time since, sheís repeatedly waffled back in forth between calling Drake ugly or gorgeous, depending on her mood. Most of the negative comments have since been deleted, but you can check out a random sample belowÖ
For a long time, Bynesí odd behavior generated quite a few laughs, but in recent months, itís become obvious something more serious than just oddball behavior is in play. After starting a fire in a strangerís driveway, the actress was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, which was later extended from 72 hours to 2 weeks. In a few days, Amanda and her parents will all go in front of a judge to work out a short-term plan. Mom and dad would like to see their daughter placed under a conservatorship (like Britney Spears has) in order to make sure she takes her medication and doesnít keep blowing through her money, but itís generally assumed Amanda will probably fight to remain on her own.
Weíll keep you updated on the troubling situation. Until then, Bravo to Drake for not making light of it. He could have used the publicity to prop himself up, but instead, he gave it the respect the situation deserves.
