Looks like Amanda Bynes has taken the idea of YOLO a little too far.
The former child star shocked her fans on Thursday night by tweeting a sexually explicit message about Toronto-born rapper Drake. (We can't reproduce the tweet due to language, but you can check out the not-safe-for-work post here.) The TMI tweet came a week after the 26-year-old "Easy A" star unveiled a makeover that puzzled her followers, capping off months of bizarre behaviour that has the world concerned for Bynes.
It also comes days after Bynes tweeted another message about the 26-year-old Canadian rapper: "Drake is a hot fellow," she wrote on March 14.
As it turns out, the Nickolodeon alum's crush appears to go back about three years. In 2010, rumours swirled that Bynes was courting the "Take Care" hit maker when she started tweeting cryptic messages of affection. Bynes took to Twitter ahead of the 2010 Grammys (for which Drake was nominated twice) to write three messages: "i hope the guy im into KNOWS who he IS!!!!," "the guy i love is the most talented person ever!!!!!!" and "He inspires me to be better! *heart* awww we should get married."
Rap-Up.com noted that, at the time, Bynes was tweeting numerous Drake quotes and links to his songs and music videos. But the actress later revealed she hadn't actually met the Canadian musician. "We have a mutual friend but we haven't met yet!" she tweeted in February 2010. "So for some reason people think we're dating but we're not!"
Following the Grammys (which saw Drake lose to Jay-Z twice), Bynes tweeted, "ummmm i'm irritated that a certain guy didn't win certain awards… He deserved them!!!" before adding, "but he won my heart!!! everybody say it with me on #! 1…2…3…awwwwwwwww *heart* haha"
Of course, there is the possibility that those tweets may have, in fact, been about Bynes's rumoured boyfriend at the time, Kid Cudi. This time around, though, Bynes's message is crystal clear.
What say you, Drake?
