Amanda Bynes is not happy with the tabloids.

In a Twitter rant this week Amanda slammed recent reports about her questionable mental state, threatening to sue Us Weekly in particular.

As she ranted, "Yet again, I'm suing @UsWeekly for writing another false story. NOTHING is wrong with me! All Trash mags - contact me personally since you r talking to people I DON'T KNOW then claiming they know me. Please say names of those supposed sources, they sound like you made them up like the crazy person you're trying to portray me as in your ugly magazine. I'm talking to the ugly Asian editor and all the ugly women I met when I did a shoot with you. I am suing you every week you put up awful photos with a false "I'm crazy" story. You have never contacted me once to find out who I am or what I'm up to. F-ck You."

While it can't be easy to have to deal with unflattering headlines about downward spirals and eating disorders, we're not sure that this is the most becoming way to express her grievances, especially when she's cursing and ranting about "ugly Asian editors."

Amanda is not the only celeb who is fed up with the gossip rags. Who else is firing back at the tabloids?

Tom Cruise

Tom does not take well to publications that write disparagingly about Scientology. Last week, Tom blacklisted several magazines for publishing scathing articles about Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard. These magazines, Us Weekly, Life & Style, In Touch, and The Hollywood Reporter were persona non grata at the premiere of his movie, "Oblivion."

The actor is suing "Life & Style" and "In Touch" for reporting that he had abandoned Suri. He is suing $50 million for defamation.

Don't worry, Tom. It's still not too late to come out of the closet.

Snooki

This month, the reality star blasted a Star Magazine report suggesting that she was using extreme dieting measures to shed her post-pregnancy pounds.

According to the report, "All she eats is lettuce and egg whites. Most of her calories come from booze, and she uses laxatives too. It's scary. She looks emaciated."

Snooki was quick to retaliate. As she tweeted, "Star mag, shame on u for that RIDICULOUS article. I literally worked my ass off in the gym for my toned, HEALTHY body. Get ur facts right."

She also posted a video joking with her BFF JWoww about her "laxative obsession." In the video, she visits a restaurant and tries to order chicken and broccoli, only to be told by the waiter that she only eats eggs. When the dinner arrives, Snooki smears the food all over the Star Magazine article in question.

Blake Shelton

Sometimes the best way to stick it to the tabloids is to have a sense of humor and to not let the rumors get to him. Why give them the satisfaction?

"The Voice" judge has been dealing with reports that he has been cheating on his wife, Miranda Lambert. However, he finds the attention oddly flattering.

As he explains, "I love it. I honestly do love it. I just know, to have that kind of coverage, if I'm popular enough they want to put me and Miranda on that stuff -- that's awesome. I have an album coming out! Put my album right next to it and pick it up."
