Shia LaBeouf Rips Off Joaquin Phoenix by Blaming Bizarre Behavior on ‘Performance Art’

The “Nymphomaniac” star says public apology is always “performative redress” and all art is “plagiarisum” [sic]

Embattled actor Shia LaBeouf has finally come clean on his weeks and weeks of bizarre behavior, claiming that it’s all been one giant piece of performance art.

LaBeouf claims #stopcreating – the hashtag he used to mark his many Twitter apologies – is a project created with the help of “Meta-Modernist” Luke Turner, screenwriter of “Training Day” and “End of Watch” David Ayer, and Kenneth Goldsmith, who in 2013 was appointed the Museum of Modern Art’s first poet laureate.

Perhaps the “Nymphomaniac” star doesn’t remember that Joaquin Phoenix – who was nominated for an Academy Award (but not for this) – beat him to the punch by five whole years, and kept up the act throughout 2009 in service of Casey Affleck’s mockumentary “I’m Still Here.”

Or perhaps that’s LaBeouf’s point.
