Amanda, who “retired” from acting at the age of 24, is expanding her horizons. In addition to her fashion line, she plans to start a music career. “I love singing and I can’t wait to start working on an album. Right now, I’m getting in shape for all the photo shoots.”

3) She’s NOT Crazy
Amanda tells In Touch that the worst thing she’s read about herself is that she’s mentally insane. “Every time I’ve heard it, it came from an ugly person’s mouth, so I don’t care,” she tells the mag. “The only ones lying about me having a mental illness are people I don’t talk to.”

She recently obtained over 1 million fans on Twitter, proving that she’s back— and in a big way. But she’s not only loved online. Recently, fans erected a shrine in her honor on a New York City Street Corner.
