Amanda Bynes’ recent campaign of bizarre behavior during her stay in New York is continuing unabated, with the former Nickelodeon star reportedly shocking attendees at a gymnastic class by showing up “in fishnets and a leotard that looked like lingerie,” according to Page Six. “She immediately started acting strangely,” a source says. “She lined up with the other gymnasts, and each took their turn to perform a roll. But Amanda just walked out on the mat, was spinning around in circles and mumbling to herself.” Later, the source adds, Bynes “did a cartwheel, but her wig fell off, and she sat down and cried.” The source reveals that Bynes wasn’t long for this particular gymnastics class: “She went two weeks in a row, but the second time she was escorted out. Staff were concerned about her manner and worried she might be a hazard to other people in the class.”

Lindsay Lohan infamously scheduled her upcoming 90-day rehab stint to start next month so that she can hit up the Coachella music festival starting this weekend, but at least one friend thinks she should skip it. “I fear for her life if she goes to the festival,” Danish promoter Claus Hjelmbak tells Radar Online. “Lindsay is in a very dark place right now, and I’m absolutely scared for her life. Coachella is the last place she needs to be. For someone struggling with addiction, like Lindsay, the amount of drugs and alcohol at Coachella is just a recipe for disaster waiting to happen.” The music festival takes place over two weekends in the desert near Palm Springs, with a packed schedule of famous bands set to perform, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Moby and Airborne Toxic Event.

Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles may be in hot water for their lavish fifth wedding anniversary trip to Cuba last week, as it’s raising eyebrows with a few Florida politicians, according to Reuters. “Despite the clear prohibition against tourism in Cuba [for U.S. citizens], numerous press reports described the couple’s trip as tourism, and the Castro regime touted it as such in its propaganda,” Florida Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mara Dias-Balart say in a letter to the director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control. “We represent a community of many who have been deeply and personally harmed by the Castro regime’s atrocities, including former political prisoners and families of murdered innocents.” A rep for Jay-Z and Beyonce was unavailable for comment.

Drew Barrymore is learning a lot now that she’s a mom. “I know it seems like I do everything, but there’s so much I had to give up. Things have to go and that’s unfortunate,” she tells Us Weekly. “You know that you’re going to miss out on your child’s upbringing or you realize that your relationship is going to suffer if you work night and day and weekends. Unfortunately, I was raised in this, like, generation of like, ‘Women can have it all,’ and I don’t think you can. I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more important.”

“American Idol” vet Adam Lambert is single again, having split up with boyfriend and Finnish “Big Brother” winner Sauli Koskinen, Lambert tells the South Florida Gay News. “It’s been kind of on its way out in the last couple of months,” Lambert says. “Sauli and I remain really good friends, and I know it’s a cliché to say, but it’s totally true. I just gave him a coffee and bagel earlier today. He’s a great person and we’ve had an amazing couple of years together. Things have just run their course.”
