It seems that disgraced Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf is hell-bent on making things worse for himself. Just two weeks after announcing on Twitter that he is retiring from ‘all public life,’ the 27-year-old’s thirst for public humiliation has led him to claim that his life is ‘performance art’ and whatever craziness he has pulled in the past few years was actually on purpose.
Ignoring the fact that all of his previous attempts at apologizing for plagiarizing Daniel Clowes’ work have backfired tremendously, the Transformers series star took to Twitter once again to try and sell a new angle to the public.
But unfortunately for him, the results were just as bad, as he ended up delivering another idiotic rant that even Kanye West would be proud of.
In a series of tweets, he wrote: “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.
"All art is either plagarisum [sic] or revolution & to be revolutionary in art today, is to be reactionary.
"In the midst of being embroiled in acts of intended plagiarism, the world caught me & I reacted.
"The show began. I became completely absorbed, oblivious to things around me."
He then labeled his Twitter account a symbol of ‘meta-modernist performance art’ before implying that he the society owes him big because his seemingly-crazy behavior is what sparked the “broad cultural discussion that needs to be had about plagiarism in the digital age & celebrity/social media absurdity.”
Sure, whatever you say champ!
He later deleted all of the aforementioned posts and littered his account with multiple tweets that say: “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE.”
May be, the latest soliloquy came at a time when he was inebriated, and when the hangover was over, he undid it.
Here is what people on Twitter think:

Shia LaBeouf says all his recent bizarre behavior has been performance art to prove a point. OK, so is he plagiarizing Joaquin Phoenix now?— Gladstone (@WGladstone) January 23, 2014
