Amanda Bynes’ behavior has been perplexing and worrying fans, with recent naked photos and statements that she wanted to end her life sending some calling for help.
A number of the strange behaviors by the former Nickelodeon star relate to that of Blac Chyna, revealing her obsession with the famous stripper. While Bynes has dyed her hair blonde, pierced her cheek, recorded visits to the gym and posted several photos on Twitter, just like Chyna, both are also reportedly trying to lose weight, according to The Hollywood Gossip. In an interview with In Touch, Bynes said, "I'm getting in shape for all the photo shoots. I like being 100 pounds... 21 to go!"
Bynes confirmed the rumors regarding her admiration for the stripper in an interview with the magazine. When asked to explain her facial piercings, she said,"I wanted to look like Blac Chyna."
More similarities between the two were found in their ties to the rapper Drake. Chyna had a baby with rapper Tyga, who is a member of the record label Young Money Cash Money. Drake is also a member of the Young Money group, and the Hollywood actress is known to have been posting messages to the rapper, although he had not responded to any of her tweets.
While Bynes had admitted that she is obsessed with herself, Chyna also thinks highly of herself, posting:
I'm trying the baddest bitch on Twitter ... But I can't seem to find her !

In her magazine interview Bynes also said she's not crazy, contrary to reports.
"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," she said. "The only ones lying about me having a mental illness are people I don't talk to."
