Amanda Bynes' Cheek Piercing Is a Painful Reminder of Her Problems

OMG 20

Amanda BynesI'm just going to come right out and say it -- Amanda Bynes' new facial piercing is freaky. She tweeted a picture of it this week, and it makes me wince just to look at it.

Maybe it's some sort of a fake or something for a movie deal (fingers crossed), but if she really put a hole in her face then, first -- ouch! And second -- why?

Tattoos, body piercings, shaved heads, what have you, I typically figure to each his or her own when it comes to personal expression (and silently pray my children NEVER consider any of them). But this -- for her -- feels like yet another cry for help.

Bynes has been on what seems to be such a self-destructive and bizarre course for so long now, so I suppose it's not surprising. It seemingly started back in 2010 when she announced she was done with acting forever. She was 23, so it seemed just a smidgen premature, but she reportedly did it because no one wanted to work with her and her freaky ways.

Then there was a series of driving disasters last year -- from TWO cases of driving on a suspended license to DUI, to so many hit-and-runs we lost count. There were also reports of her locking herself in a bathroom in New York and going crazy talking to herself in a gym and getting thrown out. And on and on, with no reports that she got any kind of help of support that she seemingly needed.

So in the scheme of things, a facial piercing probably isn't all that crazy I suppose, and at least it's not putting anyone else in danger. But still it seems almost her saddest move of them all. It's pretty hard to ignore.

I know there are plenty of proponents of facial piercings, and that's fine. But in Amanda's case, it just seems like another sad cry for help and NOT just a fashion accessory.

What do you think of Amanda Bynes' facial piercing?

You are completely ignorant. While I do not like Amanda's b/c it looks like crap on her, I don't think her getting it is a cry for help. I don't understand how you equate her getting a facial piercings to cryng for help. That's stupid.

Has anyone stop to think maybe she was just tired of the miss goody goody image? Granted I don't agree with her driving problems but let her be and quit judging people change

It's a fucking piercing she probably thought would look cool. You're just being judgemental and reading too much into shit. I will laugh and pat your kids on the back if they do some form of body modification. People who like jewelry and body art are not Deviants

I have two facial piercings. As well as lots of tattoos. Its a matter of your preferred style. I have fairly traditional values & think I'm also a fairly moral person. I am educated. I make good money. My children are intelligent, well mannered. Though judgemental people like you would never know because you judge by appearances. Regardless of anything in her personal life, a piercing being a "cry for help" is a stretch of ANY imagination. Good lord.

That's actually a dermal implant it's not pierced through the skin but implanted inside n it's really popular you must live in a box

Good grief. You sound like the most hysterical and terrifying mother ever. Loosen the hell up, for your kids' sake.

While I don't agree that getting a facial piercing is a "cry for help" I will say that with all the other issues she seems to be having,maybe one day we will hear that she is bipolar just like Brittney Spears.

I think it's cute lol. My job doesn't allow facial piercings, and i don't feel like going through the trouble of getting one if I have take it out or put a spacer in at night. But I do thing that facial piercings can be pretty cute. And tattoos. I have one on each wrist and definitely want more. Furthermore, you sound like a judgemental bitch.

I have to tell you, I have tattoos and body piercings. Each of them is discreet and tasteful. To outwardly look at me, you wouldn't know about any of them and often times, people are surprised when they find out.

I find your statement (Tattoos, body piercings, shaved heads, what have you, I typically figure to each his or her own when it comes to personal expression (and silently pray my children NEVER consider any of them).) to be extremely ignorant. What you have essentially said is if your child decides to shave their head in support of a friend with cancer, it is disgraceful in your eyes. Should they choose a tattoo as a memorial of a lost loved one or their family, it is disgraceful.

I think it would serve you well to think before you type. You should be ashamed of yourself.

While I will say, Amanda Bynes is completely off her rocker, I think it's ignorant to link her wierd behavior with a piercing/dermal. Dermals are so popular right now, I know at least 5 people who have them. A few of them are MOMS.

And I have 11 tattoos, and didn't really care too much for your little comment about how you pray your kids never consider them. Tattoos are not the mark of the devil, lady. In fact, mine are things like hello kitty, flowers, and children's names. Nothing wrong with that. Get with the times.
