That seems a little harsh. Before she got married and started a family (which I don’t think is a sad way to live BTW) she had three albums, two of which went to number 1.

It was super gruesome…like a lady in front of me actually screamed at one point. The story is compelling even if the movie moves kind of slow sometimes. However, the major shock of the movie for me was Shia’s performance. It totally gutted me and 100% changed my opinion of him. I think his antics are intentionally just to throw us off because he’s an incredible actor.

Believe it or not, I was disappointed that Shia LaBeouf wasn’t nominated for Fury. That performance has stayed with me.
Also Julianna Margulies is the truth so…good for her.

But Shia LB even INSPIRES performance art. Trent, I have to know if you’ve seen this Rob Cantor video which is hilarious and aptly titled “Shia LaBeouf”

I don’t think it’s cultural appropriation unless that culture is Mardi Gras. I don’t know any aboriginal tribes that adorn their headdresses with peacock feathers and I think the silhouette being cultural appropriation would be taking it a bit too far. More likely this is closer to her Trini roots than anything.

WOW. That was really fantastic. I wish it was slowed down so I could catch all the little intricate things they threw into that…and the frozen reference was awesome. Love that they are still this ingenious so many years later.

I didn’t think it was that bad. I mean first off, she’s wearing a gown at an outdoor show and the fur she had on wouldn’t stay on so she just ditched it. Secondly she kept trying to turn up her inner ear monitor so I’m pretty sure she could hardly hear herself (ever try singing with your car radio cranked and then realized how off you were?) And lastly, she’s 20 years older than she was when she recorded this song as a 25 year old. It’s fast, it’s all over the board and the vocal isolations are crazy, so she took the harmony line a few times. With warm vocal chords this song is ridiculously hard to sing. I don’t think she’s over at all…I think did a pretty good job under the circumstances.

Mela commented on Shia LaBeouf Reveals That He Was Raped During His #IAMSORRY Performance Art Installation

at 11:18AM on Nov 28

Human beings astound me. Sometimes in wonderful ways and sometimes in ways that really scare me. I have to admit that performance art is something I don’t fully understand and I certainly don’t understand not drawing the line at sexual assault. I will say that after seeing “Fury”, Shia’s performance is imprinted on me and I believe in his talent. And I don’t believe that consent is implicit with lack of resistance. Very confusing situation from the outside.
