One of my favorite comebacks of 2018 was Amanda Bynes. She recently did the cover of Paper Magazine, which was huge for her, given everything she’s been through with her mental health and drug addiction.
However, before her Paper Magazine interview she did an interview with Hollyscoop to clarify some of her 2013 trainwreck tweets, and ended up giving me my favorite celebrity quote of 2018.
Back when Amanda Bynes was at her lowest point with her mental health and drug addiction, she was pretty infamous on Twitter for posting some pretty out there stuff.
Most famously she stated that she wanted to Drake to “murder her vagina.”
When asked about this particular tweet on the Hollyscoop, Bynes gave the best fucking answer imaginable:
I actually wasn’t being insincere. I was serious, but I was also on drugs. So that was my way of saying, like, ‘Let’s do it, man.’ But I was on drugs and trying to be hilarious.
I was serious, but I was also on drugs, is maybe one of the greatest lines I have ever heard for so many reasons. First of all, the line in and of itself is hilarious. Secondly, the fact that in today’s society a celebrity can look at the shit they did and said during the worst time in their life and not cringe or make excuses for their behavior, or be like “Oh, you know, I didn’t mean that, I was in a really bad place and trying to be funny”, but instead, completely cooly be like “Yeah, I did mean that. I mean, sure I was on drugs, but I was still dtf” is amazing and authentic and actually makes Amanda Bynes really endearing.
Here’s hoping Drake sees the now sober and healthy Amanda’s interview and decides to finally murder her vagina. Merry Christmas, Amanda!
