The former Nickelodeon star locked herself in a West Hollywood dressing room for nearly two hours Monday, TMZ reports. Bynes, 26, was shopping at Los Angeles boutique Kin when she retreated into the room for an hour and 45 minutes, according to the shopping attendants who were present. A disoriented Bynes then attempted to leave with a bathing suit still on underneath her clothing. She also took a cab from the store.
Bynes’ strange behavior has been escalating as of late. On Sunday, her car was impounded after she was caught driving on a suspended license by Burbank Airport Police at 8 a.m. Earlier last week, Bynes had been photographed smoking from a pipe in her car, also on a suspended license. This follows a series of reckless driving incidents, including two hit-and-runs and a DUI, in the past year.
Bynes’ increasing driving troubles even spurred commentary from that other troubled former child actress, Lindsay Lohan, on Sunday. “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far,” asked Lohan, also 26, on her Twitter page.

Usher and Shakira are joining “The Voice” as new coaches next spring, when Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green take a break from the show, NBC said Monday. Original coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will remain on board in season four, the network said. The singing contest began airing its third season last week.
Aguilera is going on the road to support her new album, while Green is developing new music and a sitcom based on his life for NBC. “As I have expressed since Day One of the show … I am a singer and performer first and I am so excited to get back to that love,” Aguilera said in a statement. But she expressed eagerness about returning to “The Voice” in the future. The addition of the two new coaches will surely make for an interesting Season four.
Kim Kardashian has had a busy few months, between the highly publicized divorce, spending time with beau Kanye West, taking care of her retail stores, and freezing her eggs to preserve the Kardashian genes. Apparently Kim really wants kids and is taking precautions to ensure she’ll be able to have one when the time is right.
“I decided to get my eggs frozen so that when the time is right I am prepared in case something happens,” she said. Kardashian spoke candidly about the process on last night’s season finale of “keeping Up”.
Kardashian also said she has always wanted a family, but didn’t “take the time to find someone”. Although she’s been married twice, so we have to assume she means she didn’t take the time to find the right someone. She certainly seems to think Kanye may be the man for her, though, as she spoke candidly about her relationship during a recent visit to “The View” and said she believes it’s a permanent thing.
FOX announced Sunday that Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban were officially joining Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson as judges on American Idol. Shortly after that announcement, the show’s longtime host Ryan Seacrest shared the first shot of the brand-new foursome at the judges’ table via Facebook. “After some musical chairs, here’s how the new American Idol judges will be seated,” Seacrest, 37, wrote beneath a photo of Carey, 42, Urban, 44, Minaj, 29 and Jackson, 56, sitting down together (with Seacrest standing above) in midtown NYC.
“With the exciting addition of Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj, alongside Randy Jackson, American Idol’s star power has never been so great,” executive producer Simon Fuller said in a statement. With the addition of these new judges, this promises to be a very entertaining season!
NBC has officially picked up a new sitcom from Daytime Talk Show giant Ellen DeGeneres. The currently untitled single-camera comedy, is being written by Lauren Pomerantz, the senior writer for DeGeneres’ daytime talk show. Ellen will join Pomerantz on executive producer duties for the sitcom, which focuses on a successful and independent 32-year-old woman who, convinced she is certain to die alone, seeks the advice of those around her to reassure her that living as a singleton was the right choice.
This latest sale is the second in quick succession for DeGeneres and A Very Good Production; only last season, NBC bought the comedy The Smart One, another Ellen-produced show, in a bidding war.
ABC later picked up the project for a pilot, which will star Ellen’s wife, Portia De Rossi, as a “brilliant and successful woman who begrudgingly goes to work for her less-brainy but more popular sister – a former beauty queen, weather girl and now big-city Mayor.”
All of the rumors that have been swirling around about Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez have officially been confirmed. The Desperate Housewives star and the New York Jets Quarterback have been seen out frequently together. The actress confirmed on “Extra” with “Mark and I are, you know, fine. We’re happy just dating,” admitted Longoria to friend and host Mario Lopez after he confronted her with the Sept. 11 issue of The Post with their photos and the headline “Mark and Eva celebrate” on the cover.
Lady Gaga, along with the Haus Laboratories in Paris, Steven Klein and perfume giant Coty Inc., threw a black tie masquerade-themed party to celebrate her new fragrance, Fame (y’know, the one with the black liquid) last night. Held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the fete was packed with an odd mix of fashion heavyweights (Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs), a smattering of random celebs (Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Yoko Ono) and a lot of people who looked like they didn’t belong at all, save for their curiosity to see Gaga in the flesh. (We obviously fell into the latter group.) Everyone in attendance got the opportunity to see her get a tattoo on the back of her recently shaved head. The night continued with more “oddness” as celebrities and fans alike watched Gaga sleep in an enclosure shaped like the bottle of her new fragrance.
Photos were published today in a well known French magazine of Prince William’s wife Kate sunbathing topless at a private house in southern France, prompting a strong condemnation from the royal family.
Officials said the royal family was considering legal action for a “grotesque and totally unjustifiable” invasion of privacy in the same country where William’s mother Princess Diana died while fleeing paparazzi.
The couple was “saddened” by the use of the photos, which appear genuine, royal officials said.
The revealing pictures of Kate in Closer, a popular gossip magazine, were blurry and shot from a distance. The publication claimed they were taken on a guesthouse terrace in France where the couple vacationed earlier this month. The first major press incident involving William and Kate brought back memories of Diana being hounded by paparazzi in France in the hours and days before her fatal car crash there in 1997.
Royal officials, who demanded anonymity in line with palace policy, condemned the decision to publish the images. “Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them,” a St. James’s Palace official in London said. “The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so.”
The palace official said representatives of the couple were consulting with lawyers. The royal family is outraged and feels that the magazine has gone to far.
