UPDATED 12/19, 11:49 a.m. ET: Amanda Bynes' podcast will continue.

In an update shared to social media on Monday, Bynes addressed her prior remarks about putting the show on "pause" after not being able to book the type of guests she wanted, such as Drake and other artists.

"I felt really sad and I was in a really bad mood because the podcast was actually something that I was really looking forward to filming next week and it was something that I was really happy and excited about," Bynes said in the new video. "So I talked to a few friends and they all said to keep going, so we are going to continue the podcast and we are filming next Friday, as planned."


Been a super long day. Instagram is my primary guys. I won't always upload what I post on there on here. Thank you ♡

From there, Bynes said podcasts "just take time to grow," adding that she should not have made her prior remarks about booking guests.

"You never know, we might get them in the future," she told fans.

Next up on the podcast is Nick Mendez of Flight Club.

Amanda Bynes says she’s putting her recently launched podcast “on pause” due to the show not being able to secure certain guests, including Drake.

Earlier this month, the debut episode of Amanda Bynes & Paul Sieminski: The Podcast was released, featuring tattoo artist Dahlia Moth as its inaugural guest. Per Bynes, the public response to the show’s first episode “has been great." Still, she's decided to halt production until she and Sieminski are able to book sit-downs with the 6 God, Jack Harlow, and Post Malone.

"So even though the podcast is doing really well and the response has been great, I am going to take a pause on it for now," Bynes told fans on TikTok over the weekend. "We are not able to get the type of guests that I’d like on the show like, say, Jack Harlow or Drake or Post Malone. So maybe one day, if we’re able to get those types of guests on the show, we will resume the podcast. But for now I’m taking a pause on it. Thank you, everyone who watched. I really hope you enjoyed it."

In a prior update via TikTok, Bynes told fans she “had the best time” while shooting the first episode of the podcast, adding that the experience was “so much fun.” At the time, Bynes said, the plan was to film the second episode “in two weeks.”

Longtime Bynes and/or Drake fans will recall that the two have shared headlines together in the past, including in connection with an oft-cited 2013 tweet in which the All That alum said she wanted the "Summer Games" sequel denier to "murder [her] vagina." In a Hollyscoop interview four years later, Bynes said she was "on drugs" at the time of the tweet in question.

"I was serious, but I was also on drugs," Bynes said in 2017. "So that was my way of saying like, 'Let’s do this, man.' But I was on drugs and trying to be hilarious.”

Recently, Bynes addressed speculation among some fans that she would speak candidly on personal subjects, including mental health. According to Bynes, per a report from TMZ, the now-paused podcast will not feature her discussing such topics, nor will she be speaking on her past film and TV roles.
