Tuesday, May 28, 2013 10:00AM
Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame may not be her celebrity crush Drake but the hip-hop artist managed to bring a smile to the face of troubled Hollywood star Amanda Bynes with some encouraging advice this week.
Waka resorted to his Twitter page Memorial Day to tell Bynes she should acknowledge the negativity around her as a positive sign.
"@AmandaBynes when people hate and the media lies....... That means you popping #FlockaFacts," he tweeted May 27th. (Waka Flocka Flame's Twitter)
The words did not go unnoticed and sparked a couple of retweets from Bynes.
"@AmandaBynes when people hate and the media lies....... That means you popping #FlockaFacts," she retweeted.

The exchange came hours after Amanda issued an extensive statement claiming she was the victim of fake diss tweets aimed at R&B singer Rihanna.
"@matthewnewcomen: @AmandaBynes You made the ny post! Bashing riri? http://t.co/PRO5kz7bD7 I saw a bunch of mocked up tweets about me bashing Rihanna in my mentions. I'm followed by so many people that someone is always mocking up fake tweets so I feel the need to address them! Rihanna and I met and I'm sure we'll be in a music video together one day! That's one of the mocked up images, they took photos of me from outside and morphed them onto someone else's body. I am allergic to marijuana and alcohol but I smoke tobacco. Why does Rihanna smoke weed and not get in trouble for it but I smoke tobacco and people think I'm on drugs? I refuse to be treated like someone I'm not, which is why I fought for myself and am suing everyone involved. I don't need to go to rehab. There is never a drug or alcohol in my system! I'm sick of all the lies! What would you do if someone accused you of things you didn't do and yet you still had to be in jail at all over it!" (Twit Plus)
No stranger to gushing over one-time child TV stars, Waka recently revealed a crush on 20-year-old actress/singer Miley Cyrus.
"I'm not going to lie, I bummed a guest seat from Russell Simmons to go to her party. I got like a real slick crush on her. I went to the party, she didn't even know it. I walked right by here, she didn't even know it. As soon as she walked in the door I walked right fucking by her, she didn't even know. I didn't say shit. I haven't met her in real life. I will introduce myself. I want to get a record with her. I got a sick, sick, sick record. Let me see if I got it. I got something I'd like to write for her, give her a feel for it just to write. [Plays song] I already got my verse for it, I created the song, it's called "Shots." I got to pitch it, damn she might want to do it for her album! That'd be awesome. I'm going to do a record with her guaranteed. We're gonna take steps." (Pigeons & Planes)
