Shia LaBeouf says bizarre behavior was ‘performance art’

celebs After weeks of weird behavior and odd tweets, Shia LaBeouf has offered an explanation, claiming  that it’s all been one giant piece of performance art.

The actor said that his #stopcreating hashtag, the one he’s used for many of his recent Twitter “apologies,” is part of a project created with the help of “Meta-Modernist” Luke Turner, screenwriter David Ayer, and poet Kenneth Goldsmith.

The explanation tweets, that appeared yesterday, were reportedly deleted shortly after the actor posted them.

LeBeouf writes the issue with American art is that “we are becoming a cut and paste culture.” He says: “My Twitter @thecampaignbook is meta-modernist performance art. A performative redress which is all a public apology really is. All art is either plagiarism or revolution & to be revolutionary in art today, is to be reactionary.”

shia-labeoufShia claims that his actions on “twitter started a broad cultural discussion that needs to be had about plagiarism in the digital age & celebrity/social media absurdity.” Adding, “Intentionally oscillating between, hope and doubt, sincerity and irony, knowingness and naivety, construction and deconstruction. I addressed the world.”

The actor concluded, “My actions here are only as interesting as the conversations that come about as a result of them. The fact that they were started at all is a positive thing. Thank you. I’m sorry – Shia.”

    Bullshit! Well, I do not believe it was a performance. It is just a stupid mistake that Shia wants to improve now. I do not buy such bullshit. Shia, for the future, do not play with the minds f society, as they will play back on you and you may not like it!
