Amanda Bynes' cheek piercing sent Twitter into overdrive on Monday evening (January 14, 2013) while the Nickelodeon star also shared a photograph of the silver-stud on her new Tumblr account. In her first post, Bynes posted a black-and-white picture of herself with blond locks, black sunglasses and the new piercing on her left cheek.

The 26-year-old followed the snap up with another photograph of her smiling, again showing off her new stud. Perhaps she was pleased with news that her pre-trial hearing for her two misdemeanour counts of driving on a suspended driver's license in Burbank has been continued till February 26, 2013. Is that something to get excited about? Probably not. Anyway, it was a rollercoaster year for Bynes in 2012, who often threatened Lindsay Lohan for the mantle of most controversial star in Hollywood. There were arrests, court-cases and rumors of breakdowns in store changing rooms, leading Amanda planning to quit the acting business for good and start a fashion line. She told People magazine, "I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line. I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don't drink, and I don't drink and drive. It is all false."

Somehow, we doubt this is the last piece we'll write on Amanda Bynes.
