Because he loves riding coattails more than Bastian Bux loved riding Falcor, Nick Cannon has written an open letter to Amanda Bynes urging her to call on him for help if she needs to. He calls her his “sister” because one time they worked together once a long ago on All That and now they’re family. In a rambling post on his website (seriously, paragraphs, man!),
Usually during these interviews I am consistently questioned about my wife, my kids, and my health and I happily answer them all. But as of lately I have been hit with an onslaught of questions about someone I consider family, someone I watched grow up, and someone I genuinely feel is one of the most pleasant human beings I have had the pleasure of meeting, Amanda Bynes.
I’m not even going to put in the part where he lists every show/product he’s “asked” about.
The questions have ranged from, “Have you spoken to Amanda” to “Are you working on her rap album”. Sometimes I would answer in a playful humorous manner and sometimes I would brush it off as another Pop culture topic that a reporter was trying to retrieve a sound bite for. But after recent events of Amanda being admitted under psychiatric care and reported as 5150, I see this as no laughing matter.
That’s right. Nick is the goto source for everything Amanda Bynes.
I tweeted a few weeks about how the entertainment industry just consumes people and spits them out like flavorless bubblegum. A few chews of enjoyment then they’re under a city bus bench. Don’t get me wrong this is not a pity for the popular statement. I am always the first to say that fame and entertainment is one of the best and easiest occupations to ever have, but one must know how to navigate through the matrix or you may find yourself in a very dark hole.
Why does the bubblegum have to be flavorless? Don’t people spit out flavored bubblegum as well? Have I been doing it wrong this whole time?
We all end up alone in that dark hole at some point in our lives and if you don’t have a foundation of friends and family to help bring you up and out it makes that journey long and detrimental. So I say to my sister Amanda Bynes you’re not alone. I’m here for you. I understand. I care and I appreciate you, because that’s what family does and that’s what family is for. I also extend this to anyone else in my life, past or present that may find themselves in hard times. I’m here! Call me! Because I truly believe, the hand you’re helping up today may be the one you’re reaching for tomorrow.
Good old Nick Cannon with that fortune cookie wisdom. So deep.
