A week after paparazzi photos surfaced of Amanda Bynes smoking weed and driving (with a suspended license), the actress has been the subject of tabloid speculation that she is the next Lindsay or Britney — which is basically just shorthand for "female former child star whose transition into an adult career has been overshadowed by her very public downward spiral and possible mental instability." Despite stories of Bynes' increasingly erratic behavior (she has supposedly been talking to inanimate objects), it remains to be seen if she has indeed lost control of her life. However, she has definitely lost control of her car — repeatedly. She's been in seven accidents since April. In that respect, at least, it's clear that Jesus — or anybody other than Bynes — needs to take the wheel.
While Bynes' legal problems began last spring when she was arrested for a DUI after clipping a cop car with her BMW, she's been off course personally and professionally for the last two years. While the media was paying little attention to her exploits in 2010 (she hasn't been working much after retiring and then un-retiring), Bynes somewhat documented her internal break through months of over sharing on Twitter. She has since deleted the account, but the Internet has a way of preserving things.
