Lindsay Lohan: Why Did I Get Jailed But Not Amanda Bynes?
Sometimes Lindsay Lohan is actually right.
Lindsay tweeted on September 16, "Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far? + ... These are the moments that I appreciate my life experiences, living without regrets and Disney for supporting me as an actress-night all*"
A life without regrets is overrated, especially when there are plenty of things you should not have done. However, "Nickelodeon star" Amanda Bynes has turned bad behavior into performance art — and certainly seems to get away with it long enough to do it again. And again.
On Sunday morning, Amanda was pulled over by police and got her car impounded. She was cited, but not arrested. She's been in multiple car accidents — four in a six month span — and had many driving violations.
Now paparazzi seem to follow her around all day, just waiting for her next catastrophe move. According to TMZ's latest report, Amanda says she does not need a conservatorship because she does not have substance abuse problems (so no rehab) and she dismissed her pending hit-and-run and DUI charges as bogus. She does not think she's having a Britney Spears — or Lindsay Lohan — meltdown.
It’s possible Amanda is indeed delusional, but it’s also possible she’s just a really, really bad driver who should be kept off the roads — maybe via jail — and she’s mentally deteriorating because she’s being followed all the time by people who probably want her to screw up. (It’s not paranoia if they’re really out to get you!) Maybe she’d actually be safer in jail, not to mention the safety of all the other drivers on the road.
