He plagiarised. We criticised. He apologised. Again we criticised. So now he’s euthanised his career. Shia LaBeouf says he’s retiring. He made the announcement on Twitter:

In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life.

My love goes out to those who have supported me.


This happened about 7 hours ago. Late night tweeting is always dangerous. You make promises that become lies. And he’s been lying to himself anyway. About the attacks on his “artistic integrity”. Only a celebrity, a f-cking child star, could call this an attack on his artistic integrity after attacking another artist’s artistic integrity.

And only a celebrity, a f-cking child star, can emerge from it, maybe in a week or two, because he can’t help himself, can’t help but seek the attention, can help but seek the self-gratification, only to say that: I’m back.

Now, are we talking about Justin Bieber or Shia LaBeouf. How do you think Shia LaBeouf would react to being compared to Justin Bieber?
