Last week I wrote a lengthy post about my theory that the new crazypants Amanda Bynes that has everyone freaking out is just an elaborate piece of performance art- a big effing hoax. I could have easily written more, and I’m going to- in the form of EVIDENCE. From now until her unveiling, I’ll be posting this evidence in order to open your eyes and support my theory. I promise not to go all Amanda Bynes on your ass! SIKE!
SHE’S NOT WHO YOU THINK SHE IS.
Aug. 13, 2003: Amanda’s responds in an interview for What A Girl Wants with About.com:
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
People have a preconceived notion about who I am and it’s interesting. It’s like picking who you want to win for the Oscars and not seeing the movie. Before you make a statement about someone, get all the information and see everything before you make a judgment. I don’t like being compared to anyone or being in a class with someone.
SHE’S DEFINITELY FAMILIAR WITH ANDY KAUFMAN & TONY CLIFTON.
March 31, 2006: Moviehole.com asks about her favorite films, to which she replies:
“I’m a huge Jim Carrey fan”
So, Amanda Bynes loves Jim Carrey, who just happened to play the role of Andy Kaufman in the 1999 film based on his life and career, INCLUDING TONY CLIFTON.
Oh yeah, and there’s this from 3 years earlier. Just in case you weren’t convinced.
AMANDA & PEREZ HILTON ARE LONGTIME FRIENDS
Jan. 10, 2009: from COSMO’s cover story entitled Amanda Brings It On:
Amanda Bynes often feels like she doesn’t completely fit in. “Part of me relates to Perez Hilton because he’s an outcast,” she says of her celebrity blogger friend. (The two often grab frozen yogurt and talk movies.) “I don’t have a lot of friends who are actresses. They’re catty, and they’ll cut you down. I like that Perez is proud of who he is and doesn’t care what anybody thinks.” And it’s obvious that Amanda embraces that same attitude.
I have no doubt that Perez would help Amanda in her conquest to fool the media with her batshit crazy antics. He’s had more than his share of problems with the media perceiving him in a negative way.
