After a long period of being a somewhat forgotten tween movie star, Amanda Bynes has been hitting headlines with every click of her mouse.

The “She’s The Man” cutie’s abrupt transformation into a Jersey Shore-worthy diva — complete with fake tan, cheek piercing and talon-like nails — has the Twittersphere at rapt attention. Especially since she’s been so candid about every single detail of it.

Yesterday, Bynes took offense at the coverage of her that’s been circulating in magazines and blogs, specifically targeting Perez Hilton, Us Weekly and E!Online who “say I have erratic behavior when I do NOTHING wrong.”

E!Online writer Rebecca Macatee responded to the message, inviting Bynes to tweet at her anytime she had a concern:

The actress took her up on it in a TwitPlus post, revealing in process how she has managed to change her hairstyle so often in the last couple of weeks — she’s been wearing wigs.

“@eonline please post my pics anytime! I had to shave my head because of hair damage from someone @ John Barrett so I’m not loving my paparazzi pics for a few years! I have extensions but you can see them! Loving your shows but suing you for spreading lies about me on your website! Thanks for being my fan! True friends don’t spread lies about me so I can’t follow anyone from your network on twitter. I’ll sue you everytime you post a lie with a paparazzi shot, I tell you everything that is going on about me on twitter. Only choose the paparazzi pics that I select and post on twitter and my personal pics when talking about me! I tweet all day about nothing just like everybody on the face of the earth! Thanks!”

To avoid any further misunderstandings about what pictures magazines should or should not post of her, Bynes tweeted out an example of an appropriate shot of her walking:
