Amanda Bynes Unretires -- Why Are We Not Shocked?

Amanda BynesIf you blinked, you might have missed the short retirement of 24-year-old actress Amanda Bynes. Only a month ago, she tweeted, "Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem. If I don't love something anymore I stop doing it. I don't love acting anymore so I've stopped doing it."

Surprise, surprise, on Friday, she announced her big comeback with a simple tweet: "I've unretired."


Tip for Amanda -- you may want to be gone long enough for us to miss you before you come back to work.

I'm thinking that her original choice to retire was a rash decision. Some producer pissed her off and, being a dramatic 20-something, she reacted without thinking. Glad to know that with enough money you can come back to your job that easily.

It also might've been publicity for a new movie she has coming out, Easy A (for which she later tweeted the YouTube trailer link). 

Or both?

What do you think was the original reason for Amanda's retirement? Are you shocked to see her back so soon?
