The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: Amanda Bynes AKA Ms. Cool Disguise
LOOK OUT, MR. COOL SUIT, HERE COMES THE NEW MS. COOL DISGUISE! First and foremost let me just say this: by all accounts Amanda Bynes seems to be suffering the all-too-familiar fate of our young actors and actresses who receive too much fame too quickly and are then left unprepared and undefended for the long and difficult road ahead. Whether she is struggling with drug abuse or mental health issues, both of which are her personal business, we should all be hoping that she gets the help that she so clearly needs, and the constant presence of an inhumanely blood-thirsty celebrity press machine is only compounding her problems by the day. By the day! So that is first and foremost. But now that we’ve said that, you have to admit that it is funny when celebs drape cloth over their heads. It’s obviously not funny to them. For people as vain and self-obsessed as your average celeb, it should be painfully aware just how harmful and inescapable the burning laser beam of attention can become that these same image-over-conscious types would feel that their only escape was to drape a cloth over their heads. But, you know, in the photo: LOL. I also love that she still seems to be waving in one of the photos. (It’s possible that this is just the position that she puts her arm in to hold her golden bags, in which case, hold your bag different boo boo, although that is far down the list of things.) You are, as always, free to caption this photo, although captions must be thoughtful and fun or at the very least GENEROUS towards Amanda Bynes, who will do all of the tearing down of herself by herself thank you very much. But if you don’t want to caption the photo, which is probably the more humane option, feel free to caption a photo of your own choosing. For example, this photo.
