Amanda Bynes recently adopted a puppy and it wasn’t by chance — RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the troubled actress idolized Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton so much, that she wanted to get a puppy and tote it around like Paris famously used to do.
“Amanda is fascinated by the world of paparazzi. She thought Paris was so glamourous when the paps when follow her around all the time,” the insider revealed.
“She talks about Paris and Kim a lot because she completely idolizes them. It’s the weirdest thing. So when she got that puppy she said it was to try and be more like Paris.”
According to the insider, Amanda can’t stop feeding off all the attention she’s been getting from the media and paparazzi.
“She’s intrigued by the entire business and will actually talk to the paparazzi trying to find out more about other celebrities,” the source told Radar.
“Amanda loves all the attention she’s getting. It’s like a light switch with her — one minute she’s holding a normal conversation and the next minute all she can talk about is the paparazzi, and Kim and Paris!”
Amanda Bynes is claiming that she’s bald!
“Not having hair makes me feel like a cancer patient,” the troubled former actress tweeted late Friday.
The bizarre comment follows her appeal on Thursday when she wrote, “when my hair grows out will everyone stop putting up fake videos of random girls in wigs posing as me?

Lady Gaga has announced the official pre-order and release dates for ARTPOP, her new album, and also the app through which it will be delivered to smartphones and tablets.
Both album and app will be pre-orderable from 1 September, according to a post on Gaga's Facebook page, before their official release date of 11 November.
"Built by TechHAUS, the technological branch of HAUS OF GAGA, the app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines art, fashion, and technology with a new interactive worldwide community – 'the auras'," explains the post, which doesn't skimp on grand claims (or capital letters).
"Altering the human experience with social media, we bring ARTculture into POP in a reverse Warholian expedition.
Exploring Gaga's existence as a cultural interface, the user will share in the 'adrenaline of fame; as they build and share their own projects, chat with one another, and watch in real-time on a virtual globe as ARTPOP explodes onto the physical and virtual universe at once on November 11, our 'BIG BANG!' On this day, HAUS OF GAGA venges with forte to bring the music industry into a new age: an age where art drives pop, and the artist once again is in control of the 'icon'."
The album launch will be preceded by "an evening of artRave" including collaborations with photographers Inez & Vinoodh, theatre director Robert Wilson, and artists Marina Abramović and Jeff Koons.
It's the app that promises to be most intriguing, though. It's the most high-profile album-as-app since Bjork's Biophilia in 2011, which was initially released for iPad as a collection of interactive sections: one per song.
Gaga actually announced plans for the ARTPOP app in September 2012 on her Little Monsters website, promising fans that "the most major way to fully immerse yourself in ARTPOP is through the APP". It sounds like the creative vision for the app has remained roughly the same since then:
"ARTPOP will be released as an IPAD, iPhone, mobile and computer compatible application (WORLD) that is completely interactive with chats, films for every song, extra music, content, gaga inspired games, fashion updates, magazines, and more still in the works! I will also be able to upload new things to the APP all the time, the same way i upload to twitter and LM.com."
Most major music artists have an app of some kind nowadays, although in most cases a relatively simple one that pulls in social media updates and YouTube videos while pointing fans out to buy music, tickets and merchandise.
Others have taken a different approach. Snoop Dogg was making $30k a week from sales of digital stickers in his Snoopify photo-sharing app in June this year, while Trey Songz was reportedly making $54k a month from sales of virtual items within his Angel Network fanclub app earlier in the year.
Biophilia remains the most creatively-ambitious artist app, but also a bigger financial risk – it was rumoured to have cost more than $500k to develop, but sales figures have never been released for the iOS version. A Kickstarter campaign to raise £375k to port the app to Android and Windows 8 was cancelled 10 days in after failing to pick up steam.
Lady Gaga looks to be pulling out all the stops for the ARTPOP app in order to make it the most successful artist app yet, and prove there's a business model for apps as a format for music distribution. But also to continue making the case for the album itself as a music format.
"An app can demand all of your senses and attention at once. That's something exciting for musicians," said Scott Snibbe, who worked with Bjork on Biophilia, talking in October 2011.
"A lot of them lament the demise of the album experience due to digital distribution. But one thing about the app-album is it reclaims people's attention for an entire album."
Lady Gaga will certainly have people's attention on 11 November. It remains to be seen if ARTPOP can kick off a new wave of album-as-app projects from her peers.
In relation to the APP, Billboard director Bill Werde confirms that the app sales might count as album sales for Artpop.
Prince William has arrived at pregnant wife Kate Middleton's side as she prepares to give birth, according to today's reports.
Pilot William is said to have left his base on Anglesey to be with Kate after taking leave from his job as an air-sea rescue helicopter captain.
Today is thought to be Kate's due date.
According to today's Mirror (July 13), the "entire family are on tenterhooks".
A royal insider says: "William is dedicated to his work but he was absolutely determined to make it, no matter the distance.
"It is a momentous time, not just for the Duke and Duchess as a couple welcoming their first child into the world, but for the future of the monarchy as a whole."
Kate is due to give birth in the Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, Central London, where the couple are said to want a natural birth.
It is the same place Diana Princess of Wales gave birth to William and brother Harry.
Kate and William have chosen not to discover the sex of their baby ahead of its birth.
News of the birth will be announced to the general public when a royal aide leaves the hospital with the birth notice (signed by medics) and travels with a police escort to Buckingham Palace, where the notice will be affixed to an easel in the palace forecourt.
What do you think Kate and William should call their new baby? Tell us below!
We are proud to finally let this video out of its cage. Some back story on the concept. Kyle Davison shot this baby in Toronto. He hired triplets to act in the video, but only two out of the three actually did the work. We think they did an incredible job of acting. They actually had to take the blows you see on film…because the PHANTOM camera was shooting at over 1200 frames a second. There is no faking the funk here.
INSIDE is a song about dealing with the inner struggle of being yourself. We were pretty shaken when we heard of the teen suicides in the US around the bullying they were experiencing for being LGBT. (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender). INSIDE was a song where we tried to put ourselves in their shoes - what these teens must have felt, what were they dealing with, what was the internal struggle they fought?…we drew on the racism we both experienced growing up being minorities - the hate that I had (Fernandez) toward myself for being South Asian and not fitting into life in suburban Hamilton/Stoney Creek.
The director did not know the meaning behind the lyrics but came up with a treatment of a person fighting themselves…it fit perfect to what we had scripted in our words. Kyle shot and we made no edits to what you see. We want to work with Kyle again…someday…

Family, fans, and friends of Glee's Cory Monteith are in mourning following the actor's sudden, shocking death at age 31 on Saturday, July 13. The star, who had recently completed a stay in rehab and was in a relationship with his costar Lea Michele, was found dead in a hotel room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver, Canada, after he missed his noon checkout time.
"We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate," his reps said in a statement. "We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss."
Police first announced the tragic news in a press conference late Saturday night, just a short while after Monteith's family had been notified of his passing. The coroner is still investigating cause of death, but no foul play is suspected at this time.
Immediately after the press conference, messages and remembrances started to pour in on Twitter. Among those who expressed their grief and disbelief over Monteith's death were Taylor Swift, Sophia Bush, Kim Kardashian, Nina Dobrev, and Glee costars Kristin Chenoweth and Dot Marie Jones. Read on for their reactions, and others:
Kristin Chenoweth: RIP Cory Monteith. You will be loved. Always.
Dot Marie Jones: I have no words! My heart is broken. Cory was not only a hell of a friend, he was one amazing man that I will hold close to my heart forever.
Taylor Swift: Speechless. And for the worst reason.
Adam Shankman: Goodbye my amazing and beautiful friend. The lights in my world just grew dimmer. The world just lost one of our best. I love u so much...
Nina Dobrev: I'm gutted. Shocked and saddened to hear the news, my heart goes out to Cory's family and friends. Let's respect their space as they grieve.

Guys, this post is just to try and take our minds off a little of all the awfulness that was last night :(
Rest of this list is not so good tbh. Some shady people are in it.
Courtney Stodden showed off those new Double DDs in a tiny red dress hardly bigger than a swimsuit.
The teen bride and her 53-year-old husband, character actor Doug Hutchinson, were on their way to dinner in West Hollywood Friday night when she was spotted in the eye-popping dress.
Stodden completed her ensemble with a pair of sky high stripper heels and bright red lipstick that matched her dress.
Prayer circle for her poor back...
In addition to the heather grey short-sleeved hoodie, there are two long sleeve hoodies in a marine and dark navy color. Both feature the same side-slits as the short sleeve version. The jeans come in a raw wash we haven't seen before either, and they're selvedge. As expected, a plain white T-shirt finds its way into the collection, along with a simpler navy version. The most surprising piece has to be the the "Trippy Symphony" T-shirt, a white tee with a Been Trill graphic adorning the front and back.
Price-wise, jeans are around $235, while the hoodies go for $225 for the short sleeve to $250 for the long sleeved versions. T-shirts are selling for around $100, while the Been Trill "Trippy Symphony" tee is more around $125.
So yes, the prices are "up there" but they're not as expensive as say...Givenchy. The collection hits A.P.C. stores and the U.S. website at 10 a.m. today. We'll be taking a closer look at the collection, but if you hope to get your hands one one of the pieces, you better get your mouses ready.
too expensive for ur broke ass?
this wasn't really worth the wait tbh; the show's done better
A married British rock star is facing demands from a the mother of a US love child that he has tried to keep secret.
The mother demanded £2million and child support but friends say that he refused the request. The singer cannot be named for legal reasons and is thought to be desperate to keep the news a secret.
The star fathered the little girl after a one night stand that he has described as a mistake. One friend told The Sun: ‘He has a duty not just morally but in law. The mother is holding all the cards and if he doesn’t accept his responsibility she has said she will call his wife.’
The woman is said be completely certain that he is the father as there is no possibility that she is anyone else’s daughter. She has said that she is prepared to tell his wife if he refuses to acknowledge his daughter. The star is willing to negotiate with the mother to keep his wife in the dark
The Sun describes the singer as part of an internationally successful rock band that has had a string of hits played on the radio. Instantly recognisable, he is known as a responsible husband and father.
The child’s mother is a successful freelance writer in her 30s, and has refused to speak out before the matter is resolved. She is considering DNA testing, and yesterday a mobile DNA testing van was parked outside her new York City home.
A friend told The Sun: ‘He knows his wife will go ballistic and throw him out. He’ll be picking his clothes up off the street.’ Neighbours say the woman adores her little girl, but always stays silent on the subject of her father.
After a brief meeting in New York last year, she fell pregnant and contacted the father. But he refused to acknowledge his daughter and hired lawyers.
Her friend said: She knows she will be entitled to a big sum. She was successful before they met, but now she’s set for life.’
The singer’s agent refused to comment.
Justin Timberlake could face legal action from anti-sexual violence charity Take Back The Night over the title of his new single.
The singer began streaming his track 'Take Back The Night' on Friday (July 12). It's the first song to be taken from his upcoming album 'The 20/20 Experience - Part 2'.
However, the executive director of the Take Back The Night group, which has been in operation as a charitable foundation since 1999, has now claimed that Timberlake failed to ask permission to use their name.
"Everyone at Take Back The Night is really shocked, because normally we get asked when people want to use the name," Katherine Koestner told Radar Online. "Normally entities as large as Justin Timberlake do very kind and thoughtful things to support our cause."
Continuing, Koestner said her organisation has "big concerns" over Timberlake's use of the phrase "Take Back The Night" and took issue with the song's lyrics. "The lyrics are definitely very sexual and not at all clearly anti-sexual violence. 'Use me', for example, is not a great phrase for anyone affiliated with the organisation."
Koestner also revealed that her organisation is now in communication with Timberlake and his team. "We tried to contact him through his website and got no answer. Then we sent him a letter Friday (July 12) from our legal counsel saying 'You used our name without our permission'."
"They got back to us and said they're sorry," Koestner continued. "His agent said 'Justin's a good guy! He's a family man!' They claimed he'd never heard of us before he wrote that song. I don't know what country he's been in. I suppose it could have slipped off his radar screen somehow. Somebody working for him definitely messed up."
Although Koestner went on to criticise Timberlake for failing to "take the necessary steps to make sure that it was appropriate," she also made clear that the Take Back The Night foundation is keen to reach an agreement with the singer. "This whole thing with Justin is just really unfortunate and we're hoping it can be amicably resolved," she added.
Timberlake played 'Take Back The Night' during his headline set at London's Wireless Festival on Friday night (July 12). He'll return tonight (July 14) to headline the third and final night of the festival alongside Jay-Z as part of their 'Legends Of The Summer' world tour.
"There's some rumors going around that [Sony] could possibly be going out to Holland Roden," for a role in "The Amazing Spider-Man" franchise. "Arrow's" Roy Harper was responding to a question about the "Teen Wolf" actress possibly playing Mary Jane Watson. He then added, "I don't know if it would be to replace Mary Jane, it could possibly be to play another character." Colton goes on to say that he thinks Holland would be an amazing choice to play the Spider-Man love interest but also adds that he think Shailene Woodley is "absolutely incredible." With the role of Mary Jane Watson now being saved for the third installment of "The Amazing Spider-Man" which is set to hit Us theaters on June 10, 2016, we may have a bit of a wait to see just how things will play out between Sony and Ms. Woodley.
Beyonce called in a concert for a moment of silence for Trayvon Martin, rapper Young Jeezy released a song in Martin's memory and Russell Simmons called for peace after George Zimmerman was acquitted by a Florida jury in the death of the teenager.
There was a wide range of reactions by celebrities after jurors cleared Zimmerman late Saturday of all charges in the 2012 shooting death of the unarmed 17-year-old Martin.
Beyonce took a moment to honor Martin during her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. Her concert started about 30 minutes after the Zimmerman verdict began to circulate.
"I'd like to have a moment of silence for Trayvon," the pop star said as the stage grew dark with just a few key lights shining.
Beyonce then sang the chorus of "I Will Always Love You," a song, fittingly given the location, written by country music star Dolly Parton and brought to a global audience by the late Whitney Houston, before transitioning into her hit "Halo."
It was just one of several reactions from celebrities and artists following Zimmerman's acquittal by a six-woman jury. Much of it focused on the perceived outrage of the situation. But others had more poignant responses.
Young Jeezy posted a new song, "It's a Cold World (A Tribute to Trayvon Martin)," to his Facebook page with a comment: "I am in no way shape, form, or fashion ... trying to capitalize off of the latest series of events. These are my true feelings and my form of expression about it."
Simmons, a producer and entrepreneur, posted a blog entry that said he'd be supporting the Trayvon Martin Foundation in helping to repeal laws like Florida's Stand Your Ground law. He signed off, "God bless you little brother. Rest in peace."
He also called for those upset with the verdict to channel their energy away from violence on Twitter, telling followers "we must remain peaceful. No matter what, remain peaceful."
For the most part, it appeared protesters did with few reports of damage late Saturday and early Sunday in Tallahassee, Fla., Atlanta and California.
"If u have any anger this evening," Simmons wrote on Twitter, "put that energy into challenging these horrible laws that allow overly-anxious neighborhood watchmen to carry guns and shoot innocent people. "
"Take Me Home" is on iTunes this Tuesday y'all!
So proud of my booboos!
The pair performed 'My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)' together on stage last night.
Taylor Swift was joined on stage by Fall Out Boy lead singer Patrick Stump for her 'Red' tour show in New Jersey last night (13th July).
The artists performed 'My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)' in front of 55,000 fans at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.
The track is taken from Fall Out Boy's latest album 'Save Rock And Roll' and previously got strong words of praise from Taylor when it was first released.
Her 'Red' tour has also seen special guests in the form of Nelly and Train's Pat Monahan join her at various dates.
Earlier this year, the country star was also a surprise guest herself when she joined the Rolling Stones for a performance ahead of her set at Capital FM's Summertime Ball 2013.
Meanwhile, the singer is among the stars from the music world reacting to the news that Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead in his hotel room yesterday.
While Lupe Fiasco was busy sounding off on black America and shaming us for not “valuing ourselves,” a popular African artist was offering a different perspective.Akon took to Instagram immediately after the “not guilty” verdict was read in the George Zimmerman trial and suggested that blacks move back to Africa. According to the Konvict Muzik head, who is of Senegalese descent, we would receive much better treatment on the African continent.
“Every African American in the United States need to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were u will be treated like the royalty you are,” Akon captioned the below photo. “You don’t deserve this treatment. This is not your country!!”
Several fans have responded negatively to the photo.
Following Saturday night's news of Cory Monteith's tragic death at 31, his Glee costar and on-again off-again love Lea Michele is asking for privacy.
"We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea's privacy during this devastating time," a rep for the actress told PEOPLE.
Following his decision to enter rehab for substance addiction in late March, Michele, 26, stood by her man.
"I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this," she told PEOPLE at the time.
After a month-long treatment in April, the costars and real-life couple reunited.
At the time, Monteith Tweeted:"Sending out big love to everyone. thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me! :)"
Michele also chimed in on Twitter, saying, "Today is a great day :) Love you all! Xo."
