A lot of blogs are giving Amanda Bynes crap for saying that she was “retiring” from acting this weekend over Twitter. And in one respect, she totally deserves to get called out for announcing this over Twitter. That is why you have a publicist, Amanda Bynes, so you don’t end up sounding like Courtney Love on an Internet-binge when you are actually trying to say something. ON THE OTHER HAND:
If Amanda Bynes wants to quit acting, she is totally entitled to. Girl has been in the business since she was 10, (she’s now 24), which is way longer than most child-stars make it before burning out. God forbid Amanda doesn’t want to end up some washed-up, D-lister on a Vh1 reality show in 3 years time. If she really thinks this is what’s best for her mental health, than good for her. Though again, “mental health” and “Twitter rant” usually don’t go hand in hand for celebrities, but maybe that’s why she’s nipping this thing in the bud.
