And on the seventh day, they created Shiantology. That’s right, a group of fans has founded a religion based on Shia LaBeouf. Their mission statement says:
“Characterized by a belief in the power of Shia’s spirit to clear itself of past painful experiences (in particular, hand smashing, car crashes, and drunken outbursts in Walgreens) through self-knowledge, spiritual fulfillment and copious amounts of Arizona Ice Tea. Shiantology places an emphasis upon Shia’s immortal spirit, Shiacarnation, an extrascientific method of pshiachotherapy (Shianetics), and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, daily SHIA WALKING POSTS.”
And if that weren’t amazing enough, check out their Shiart collection of Shia’s mug in place of religious icons. [Shiantology]
Amazing. This has inspired us to come up with some new celebrity-based religions. Keep reading »
Several tabloids this week did Michael Jackson tribute issues, which is to be expected. But there’s so much other trashy celebrity drama that we need to catch up on! We’ve practically forgotten all about Jon and whatsherface or Rihanna and so-and-so. I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda need more diverse hubbub in my life (no offense MJ), so thank goodness this week hit a few of our favorite drama mongers. Keep reading »
Know what 54-year-old designer Donna Karan loves? “Music, DJin’, dancing, partys going out!” She’s also a fan of “just having a laugh and having it easy no worries!” Or so says the most recent issue of Women’s Wear Daily parody WWWD.
In their Man Issue, released this week, WWWD delves into deep issues ranging from the size of Shia LaBeouf’s package (“beyond inadequate,” for the record), to whether or not rappers Pharell Williams and Kanye West are super into each other in the biblical sense. It’s questions like these, my friends, that need answering as the financial markets crash around us and the recent loss of your job forces you to trade in your apartment for an abandoned refrigerator box, stealing a wireless signal just to get access to The Frisky.
Check out the issue here and a few more of our highlights after the jump. Keep reading »
Hot Hollywood couple Megan Fox and Shia LaBoeuf dined in downtown New York City last night. The sexy dress plus this grandpa cardi has her looking like a slutty Mr. Rogers. We know Shia likes older women — like his mom, but young women dressed as old men? Now that’s kinky. [NYC, 6/25/09] Keep reading »
Shia LaBeouf was on “The Today Show” this morning promoting the “Transformers” sequel and when Meredith Viera trotted out a female fan who was dying to meet him, Shia showed his sweet side. In fact, I might have even seen sparks fly! The best part was when Samantha told Shia she had bought her floral printed skirt just for the occasion, then asked him what kind of girl he likes. His response seemed genuine. “All kinds,” he replied. “What are you doing the rest of the day? My day is boring.” Clip above! Keep reading »
If nothing else, the train wreck that is young “Indiana Jones” star Shia LaBeouf has been refreshing for its candor.
We, the public, are used to a celebrity-publicist-consumers trifecta that downplays, obfuscates and outright lies when it comes to their naughty behavior. Exhibit A: Britney. Exhibit B: Lindsay. Exhibit C: Chris Brown. Exhibit D: Paris. Exhibit E: Jeremy Piven. I could go on, but you get the point.
But 23-year-old Shia LaBeouf—not through a publicist, not through a stage parent demon from hell—has been straight up when talking to the press about his troubles. Most recently, he confessed to Parade that he is an alcoholic, that he sometimes feels his life is meaningless and his insecurity is a “God-sized hole.” Certainly, not every celebrity is required to open up about their personal lives this way, but we appreciated his honesty, rather than the same-old-same-old BS.

People‘s Hottest Bachelors issue hits newsstands this Friday, and we’ve got the list. Among the supposedly best looking eligible men in Hollywood are few gentlemen who simply don’t do it for us. The offenders, after the jump. Keep reading »
Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf seem to like each other an awful lot. “He probably is my favorite person in the entire world,” Megan told People. And Shia replied, “We’re attracted to each other, and I think you can see that in our scenes together. It’s very real and tangible.” Holy smokes! Add in the fact that Megan’s car was apparently spotted at Shia’s house early in the morning last week, and lots of people are saying these two are a couple. [People] We wonder what Megan’s boyfriend, 90210er Brian Austin Green thinks about this “very real” chemistry?
Yeah, we aren’t buying it. “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” opens on June 24th and this has publicity stunt written all over it. With all the ridiculous things that come out of Shia and Megan’s mouths, we’re beginning to think that oversharing in general is the “Transformers” marketing strategy. After the jump, the most looney tunes quotes from both these stars.

“Probably the sexiest woman I know is my mother. She’s an ethereal angel. Nobody looks like that woman. If I could meet my mother and marry her, I would. I would be with my mother now, if she weren’t my mother, as sick as that sounds.”

Shia LaBeouf. He’s not just some kid caught up in a world war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. He’s also a sensitive music video director who likes to shoot on Super 8. Rumspringa, a Los Angeles-based group that cites influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Grandmaster Flash, is one of the 22-year-old actor’s favorite bands. Last summer, he was at one of their gigs the night he ended up getting into the car accident that wrecked his hand, temporarily endangered his role in the “Transformers” sequel, and resulted in his getting his driver’s license suspended for a year. Perhaps to keep himself out of getting into any more trouble, LaBeouf directed Rumspringa’s latest video: “Mind’s Awake.” Interestingly, the song appeared in another video late last year that focused on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
