Amanda Bynes' breakdown is at this point completely legendary. Stretching over a roughly twelve month period from 2013 to 2015, the breakdown saw her rock long teal wigs and Blac Chyna facial dermals, plan to launch a rap career and tell an abundance of celebrities that they were ugly simply for mentioning her name. It also gave us one of the greatest tweets ever bestowed upon mankind with this beautiful message to rapper Drake:
But since being hospitalised in October of 2014, Bynes has kept mum about exactly what was happening to her during that time. Her family released some press statements to let the public know that she was out of recovery and doing well, and Amanda herself returned to Twitter to announce that she had gone to college to study fashion. But we haven't heard from Amanda herself for around three years.
Bynes sat down with Hollyscoop for an exclusive interview recently where she discussed how she's been, her future plans on getting back into acting, and yes, even that infamous tweet to Drake.
It's amazingly nostalgic to see and hear Amanda back on our screens again, and it's great that she seems to be doing well. I have to say though, I'm saddened by how stiff and uncomfortable she seems on camera. It seems like the days of the bubbly, bright personality we saw in The Amanda Show are long gone. Instead, this Amanda is reserved, quiet and awkward, even if surprisingly honest and open about her time on drugs. I'm hoping that the more she gets back into the public realm the less nervous she'll seem, but I can't help but wonder if there's something going on with her medication as well.
