Amanda Bynes on Drake ‘Murder My Vagina’ Tweet: ‘I Was Serious But I Was Also on Drugs’

Former child star addresses infamous 2013 tweet

In her first interview in four years, former child star Amanda Bynes finally explained her infamous Drake tweet from 2013 by saying, “I was serious, but I was also on drugs.”

Back in 2013, a few years after the “She’s the Man” star publicly announced her retirement from acting, Bynes sent the infamous tweet, which read “I want @drake to murder my vagina.”

“That was my way of saying, ‘Let’s do it, man,'” Bynes explained in her interview with Hollyscoop founder Diana Madison, published on Friday. “I was on drugs and trying to be hilarious,” she continued. “He’s hot! What does that even mean? It just means, like, ‘F–k me, Drake!'”

Elsewhere in the 7-minute interview Bynes expressed her desire to return to acting after her short break from the limelight. “I do miss acting, and I have something surprising to tell you: I’m going to start acting again,” she said. “I want to do TV. Maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it, in the future. That’s what I hope.”

The former Nickelodeon star also said that she’s been sober for three years. In 2014, Bynes was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. She had previously been booked for hitting a police car in 2012, and entered rehab the following year.

“I’ve been going to school lately, fashion school-FIDM. And I love it,” she said. “I’ve learned how to sew, I’ve made patterns, and I want to start a clothing line in the future, so FIDM has been helping me with that. Other than that I hike, I go spinning — I take spinning classes — and I feed the homeless. And that’s been really interesting and fun.”
