Amanda Bynes opens up about Drake tweet

In her first interview in years, Amanda Bynes revealed she really did have the hots for Drake. In an infamous 2013 tweet, Bynes said she wanted the Toronto rapper to, well, do something to her that is unprintable in a family newspaper. On Friday, Bynes said she stands by her original statement. “I actually wasn’t being insincere,” the former “All That” actress told Diana Madison of Hollyscoop’s the Lowdown. “I was serious, but I was also on drugs. So that was my way of saying, ‘let’s do it, man,’ but I was on drugs and trying to be hilarious.” In the interview, Bynes also said in recent years she’s been going to fashion school and plans to release her own clothing line, and hopes to return to acting in the future. No comment yet from Drake.

Seinfeld on Kesha incident: ‘It was a little off’

Jerry Seinfeld opened up to Extra about his non-hug with Kesha earlier this week. “I was right in the middle of an interview, it was a little off,” Seinfeld said. “When you get to be my age and you’ve done a couple things, you have your own reality, in my reality, I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say hello. I gotta start somewhere; hug isn’t first moment of a human, two humans. I never did that.” The incident in question occurred when the pop singer approached Seinfeld on a red carpet. She gushed about being a fan and went in for a hug, and the comedian stepped away and politely declined. When she tried again, Seinfeld took a step back and gave her the Heisman yet again. The clip went viral. “I’m 63, I don’t know every pop star, I don’t know everyone.” Seinfeld reasoned. He said he and Kesha laughed about it later, but he still didn’t grant her a hug.

‘Witness’ this: Swift releases digital catalog

The “Bad Blood” between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry has not subsided. While promoting her new album “Witness,” Perry has spoken to several news outlets about her tiff with Swift, which Swift addressed in her 2014 single “Bad Blood.” Perry returned the favor with the “Witness” diss track “Swish Swish,” and Swift delivered a not-so-subtle blow when she released her entire catalog to Spotify at midnight on Thursday, the same time “Witness” debuted on streaming services. Swift was previously one of Spotify’s most outspoken critics, but all is fair in love and war.
