I am sure most of you have heard the silent cry of the “I’m Not Famous Anymore” paper bag stunt perpetrated by Shia LaBeouf. While we aren’t strangers to celebrities pulling stunts to get attention, no stunt has been as weird or as seemingly desperate as this one.

To be frank, before this article, I hadn’t thought much of  LaBeouf since the Transformers days. Therefore, when I heard about the paper bag stunt, I saw it as a cry for attention and a way to get back into the limelight.

Well my sentiments about LaBeouf and his paper bag all changed when I heard that earlier this week, LaBeouf posted “#IAMSORRY” on his twitter page, and opened an art installation show in Los Angeles.

 

 

Picture 7In this installation art (if you could really call it that), Shia sits in an empty room, and people are allowed in one at a time to see him.  Ariana Bacle of Entertainment Weekly  reports that Beouf’s art installation is “suspiciously similar to a 2010 Marina Abramović installation at the Museum of Modern Art, which included the performance artist sitting across from individuals and staring silently at them.”

 

For the most part, people reported that he sat unmoving and in tears. There are videos of some people who go in and make fun of him (which this writer thinks is a little much for someone who is clearly losing it), while others say they go in and try to talk to him and wipe away his tears.

 

What do you think is going on in Shia LaBeouf? What is he apologizing for? Have you seen this installation art? Comment below or tweet me @kateeb790!
