Shia LaBeouf is Sitting in an Art Gallery With a Paper Bag Over His Head
SHIA LABEOUF started his new "performance art" thing yesterday at an art gallery in Los Angeles.
Here's how it works: Every day until Sunday, from 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M., Shia sits at a table in a tuxedo, with that paper bag over his head that says "I Am Not Famous Anymore". And people are let in one at a time to sit across from him.
Before you go in, you get to choose one item to bring in with you. The choices include a bullwhip, a bottle of booze, a pair of pliers, a pink ukulele, a Transformers toy and a collection of Tweets about Shia, many of which are BRUTAL.
You basically do or say whatever you want, and Shia for the most part DOES NOT REACT. Although some journalists who've checked it out say he CRIED. And one held hands with him. The exhibit is called "I Am Sorry."
Shia WILL take off the bag if you ask him.
Is There Video of Justin Peeing in His Jail Cell?
After that video of JUSTIN BIEBER being FRISKED in jail was released, his lawyers moved to block any more video from coming out.
They said it was because Justin was also, quote, "captured on videotape in various states of undress, which show intimate personal parts of [his] body."
Well, TMZ says the unreleased footage shows Justin PEEING in his holding cell. It's not clear if he just whips it out and pees on the floor . . . like he did last summer when he relieved himself in a restaurant's mop bucket . . . or if there was a toilet in the cell.
But it seems pointless to try to block the video through legal channels, since we assume it would have to be LEAKED. There's NO WAY footage of a holding cell is ever intended to be made public, especially if it involves bathroom activities.
Bieber seemed fairly sober in the frisking video . . . but this other footage supposedly shows him, quote, "stumbling around while he was taking his tests." If that's the case, you can see why his legal team would want to keep it under wraps.
Five Michael Jackson Fans Won $1.36 Each For Their Emotional Suffering Over His Death
Five MICHAEL JACKSON fans have won a court case against DR. CONRAD MURRAY, and were awarded damages in the amount of A DOLLAR-THIRTY-SIX. EACH. (!!!)
The five were among 34 fans who sued Murray for the emotional pain and suffering Michael's death caused them. They're all part of a French-based Michael Jackson fan club.
Their lawyer says the five who won were able to prove their claims with the help of, quote, "witness statements and medical certificates." The court awarded them each ONE EURO, which comes out to $1.36.
But it's really not the money they were after. In fact, they're not even pursuing Murray for the cash. What they REALLY want is access to Michael's grave, which is closed to the public.
The lawyer says, quote, "They have been subjected to ridicule and I'm delighted their suffering has been taken seriously by the law."
Miley Cyrus Claims Her Tour Will Be "Educational" for Kids
If you have a young child who's a fan of MILEY CYRUS . . . life can't be easy for you. Especially since she's been EVERYWHERE over the past year, and hasn't been acting like a role model for kids under the age of 18 . . . or 25.
But things are looking up: Because Miley says her upcoming tour will be a LEARNING EXPERIENCE for young children.
Miley explains, quote, "Even though parents probably won't think this, I think my show is educational for kids, because of the art that they're going to be exposed to that most people don't know about.
"People are taught to look at things so black and white, especially in small towns. I'm excited to take this tour to places where [art] like this wouldn't be accepted . . . where kids wouldn't learn about this different kind of art.
Some of that "art" apparently involves Miley suggestively riding around on a giant HOT DOG.
It was in an interview conducted by Miley's sister Brandi Cyrus. There's video on Fuse.tv.
