Shia LaBeouf Is Currently Doing Some Kind of Super Artsy Thing in Los Angeles
As you’ve probably heard by now, Actor, director, and mirror to our tortured souls, Shia LaBeouf is doing some sort of performance art thing in Los Angeles.
The exhibition/performance/whatever is called #IAMSORRY and is being held at 7354 Beverly Blvd until Sunday.
I headed down to check it out.
I arrived expecting a huge line, but there was none. Just one other guy and a security guard. The guard told me that I was the 75th person to see the exhibit, and that I had to go in alone, “because we don’t want anyone else to ruin your experience.”
After about five minutes of waiting, the security guy gave me the once over with a metal detector, and I was allowed inside.
I ended up in a room with a bunch of objects laid out on a table. I managed to sneak a photo.
There was a ukelele, a bottle of Jack Daniels, a bowl containing print-outs of mean tweets about Shia, a bowl of Hershey’s Kisses, a bottle of Brut cologne, a copy of The Death Rayby Daniel Clowes, an Optimus Prime action figure, some pliers and a whip.
A woman told me to choose an object. I picked up the bowl of mean tweets about Shia.
A copy of the press release for whatever this thing is.
Bowl in hand, the woman led me through a curtain and into a small room.
Shia was sitting at a small wooden table in the center of the space. He was wearing a suit and the “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE" bag that he had on his head in Berlin.
The woman left, and it was just me and Shia. I didn’t sneak a photo of him, out of respect for his art (JK, I chickened out.)
I sat down opposite him. As far as I could tell, I wasn’t being filmed and nobody was listening in.
After sitting there for a few seconds with Shia staring at me in silence, I said, “So you’re not gonna talk, huh?” He didn’t respond.
Amazing, truly amazing.
Hmm…where have I seen this sort of behavior before?
Celebrities are the epitome of the “attention whore” mentality.

Wow, this is the funniest hate mail I’ve received in a while.
You are so hilariously wrong in every way that I’m not sure where to start.
Oh NOES! I have an opinion about someone’s death that you don’t like. So sorry that I don’t view his death as a tragedy, but I don’t. Get over it. I feel sorry for his family, but as someone with a personality given toward addiction (the reason I am VERY careful about addictive substances) I view it as a matter of personal responsibility. He made decisions, poor ones, and I won’t dignify them by making his death something to sob over.
Next thing. You tell me to “never talk down someone like that” right after calling me a racist, ignorant, homophobic, “fucking disgusting” person. You seeing the irony? Or is it only dead people we can’t criticize? Because I fail to see the reasoning there.
I’m homophobic? Yes, I’m so scared of teh gayz, that must be why I’m a woman who has sex with women, I’m just trying to cover up my homophobia…you caught me. *eye roll*
Racist? Where pray tell have I said anything racist?
Ignorant? At least I can explain my opinions, all you can do it insult people and tell me my “opinions” (why was that in quotes by the way?) are shit without bothering to expound on your point.
Something here is hilarious, but it’s not my blog honey.
It will forever amaze me how people get so emotionally attached to celebrities. Philip Seymour Hoffman was a brilliant actor. That’s about where it should end. From the sound of it, he just got out of rehab and was immediately shooting heroin again. He was found because he never picked up his three children. That means the guy was doing smack instead of being a responsible father. I’m sorry if I’m not overly touched by this story or any other similar story.
Meanwhile, Woody Allen’s adopted daughter is again saying he raped her when she was seven years old…and no one blinks an eye. The celebrity infatuation is all backwards.
Jason Mattera is my favorite conservative troll. He’s so passionate about exposing Hollywood hypocrisy, that he even called out his childhood hero to his face. That’s integrity folks.
