amanda bynesThe Amanda Bynes drama gets weirder by the day. As if the bizarre getups (ratty blonde wigs in Times Square, lingerie to the gym) and the outrageously weird Twitpics of herself topless weren't bad enough, her downward spiral has gotten even  stranger. In a new interview with In Touch magazine, she one-ups the looniness with her most troubling rant yet.

She tells the magazine that she doesn't talk to ugly people. "I only have hot friends," she says. "They have my back until I die." In fact, she insists that all those people who have been criticizing her behavior are totally fugly.

I have no clue [why people say I’m insane]. Every time I’ve heard it, it came from an ugly person’s mouth, so I don’t care ... The only ones lying about me having a mental illness are people I don’t talk to.

Oh boy. She's totally lost it. When have crazy rants ever been a good way to prove you're actually not crazy? And to be honest, ugly people are the luckiest people in the world if it means they don't have to deal with her -- ever.

Everyone keeps comparing her to Lindsay Lohan, alleging she's following down the same doomed path, but I think that may be a bit unfair to LiLo. As wild and reckless as the Mean Girls star is, she has rarely been described as crazy and strange. If you ask me, both once-bright stars have ruined their careers, but due to totally different behavior.

Amanda's antics aren't the typical party-girl zaniness. She's not out dancing on tables and going out too hard, as we witnessed Lindsay do. In many ways, what's happening to her is significantly more troubling because we just don't know what exactly went wrong. Why in the world hasn't someone stepped in to help this poor girl? Perhaps they've tried, I don't know. But Amanda, for the love of God, turn off the cameraphone and shut down your Twitter account.

What do you think of Amanda's latest rant?
