Amanda Bynes wants to lose 21 pounds.

The troubled starlet - who was recently forced to move out of her New York apartment, after being threatened with eviction - has sparked further concern after revealing she is unhappy with her current weight of 121 pounds and is hoping that living in New York will help her slim down.

The 5' 8'' 'Easy A' star told ''I moved to New York City and I love it! I lost 4 lbs. since I moved. I'm 121 lbs - my goal is 100 lbs. I gain weight quickly so I need to work out constantly.''

Amanda - who announced she has retired as an actress - also revealed that she is hoping to carve out a new career in music.

She said: ''I would love to start recording an album,'' but also hopes to start designing her own clothing, saying: ''I've always loved drawing and my dream is to start a fashion line.''

Amanda has had a series of legal troubles in the past few months and in December settled two hit-and-run cases after reaching a civil compromise with her victims, saving herself from a potential 12 months in jail.

A source said: ''Amanda Bynes was able to reach a civil compromise in both of her hit-and run-cases.

''The two separate victims agreed to dismiss the charges after a financial settlement was reached with both... There really is no need to pursue legal charges because damage to their respective vehicles was paid for.

''Her lawyer Richard Hutton advanced the case and went in early to avoid the media.''

Along with her legal troubles, Amanda, 26, was involved in two bizarre episodes in September 2011, locking herself in a store changing room for nearly two hours and refusing to come out and stripping off during a gym class and friends say her parents don't know what to do as Amanda has cut contact with everyone.

The insider explained: ''Amanda shut them out and isn't speaking to them. She is doing everything on her own. She has no direction.

''Amanda is out of control. She won't accept help from anybody . . . She's completely lost.''
