Shia LaBeouf Explains Away Recent Behavior as "Performance Art"
Despite an earlier promise to retire from public life, Shia LaBeouf is making headlines again, calling his recent behavior "performance art."
Accompanied by the caption, "#stopcreating," the "Transformers" star posted a photo of a lengthy explanation, titled, "Twitter as Art."
In it, he shares, "Performance art has been a way of appealing directly to a large public, as well as shocking audiences into reassessing their own notions of art and its relation to culture. My twitter "@thecampaignbook" is a meta-modernist performance art. A Performative redress which is all a public apology really is."
Later, he says that the recent events "freed my unconscious and released my authentic creative imagination."
In conclusion, the 27-year-old actor states, "Risking my public representative's skin to prove my platitudes. I embarked on a journey full of the informed naivety of a magical realism. 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." As if we haven't heard it enough from him, he ends with, "That you. I'm sorry - shia."
