Let's start with who she is, then we can start to think about who might care.
She's doing it for attention. Stop giving it to her.
I looked her up on Wikipedia, I still can't figure out who she is or why I should care if she was 302'd. 5150'd in Ca.
She had her own show on nickalodeon and has does many movies.
Don't even know who she is.
Ah, People Magazine...a fine and important publication. A must read for those in the know.
I'm not in the know...who is Amanda Bynes, what is a mental lockdown, and why should I give a ****?
In fact...why is this thread even in existence!
Edit: For reasons even I don't understand, I read the fine piece of essential reportage, and now understand a "mental lockdown" is an involuntary hospitalization. Incredibly clever phrasing!
I still don't understand why anybody should give a ****.
I read an article about this girl (mainly to figure out who she was after I kept seeing her in the news) and it looks like one of those "child stars gone wrong" cases.
She definitely has some peculiarities and probably could use the assistance of a professional. I hope she gets it and leads a normal life.
I'm pretty sure they shouldn't, although perhaps someone could explain otherwise...
Or, perhaps, several sharp blows upside the head.
Or maybe the loony bin in which she currently resides could conveniently lose the key...and then we would have to pay attention to some really important stuff...like some other totally useless moron with no discernible talent or reason for any attention.
Cranky old SOB, ain't I. I just find these sad excuses for humans to be the object of any attention to be an incredibly sad comment on the state of our culture.
For those who don't know her, she is basically Lindsey Lohan just younger.
Yes, I'm with you on this.
When one considers the manifold advantages of the First World, with all of the information and knowledge and potential for learning we have so easily on tap, it stuns me that we seem to spend our time and resources discussing such witless and irrelevant trivia instead. I readily admit that I don't get it.
And, ah, forgive me- but who on earth is she?
Amanda Bynes, just older.
And - eh, please remind me again - just who is.......ah, nah, forget it......
It is not that I cannot consult Wikipedia to try to find out who she is, it is just that I fail to see why one should want to try to find this out, on an occasion such as this.......why is this information important?
Sigh. I never could get the hang of this sort of ephemeral popular culture......and, to be honest, I never understood why so many others find this a story of compelling public interest......
Still dunno who Amanda Byrnes is nor do I know what a 5150 hold is..
Sorry, I can't help you with Amanda Byrne part...I have no idea who she is, what she does (if anything), or why anyone should care.
I believe a 5150 Hold is what we call in Massachusetts a Section 12...in involuntary hospitalization in a psychiatric hospital or psych unit. It's usually a three day involuntary, and to extend it further actions must be taken. In the US, it can only be exercised if the individual represents an active danger to self or others.
She loves all this attention.
Remember while I'm not "in the U.S." I'm from the U.S.
I sorta take pride in my general shelteredness.
It's called the "Baker Act" here in Florida, we even use it as a transitive verb, "Baker Acted".
I don't know who Amanda Byrnes is either, but I know that 5150 is a 1986 Van Halen album!
This topic is a waste of internet bandwidth. And there's plenty of it, so that goes to show you how irrelevant it is.
Nobody with an IQ over 60 cares.
And to bring it back to a Mac Forum...in the immortal words of Steve Jobs: "can we raise the tone of conversation here?"
I imagine to know who she is, you'd have to be around my age (20) or thereabouts. She had a very popular show on Nickelodeon; It was ridiculous and stupid, but pretty much everyone I grew up with remembers it.
But I must agree with the majority of posters in this thread; celebrity gossip in general is a waste of time, child stars especially.
