After taking a short break in art piece purgatory, Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump art installation HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US is back in business. And just like the last time it was temporarily shut down, it’s once again moving on to a new location.
Not long after Shia and partners, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, mounted a camera outside of the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, NY, he got arrested and later got into a fight with a Nazi and it was shut down. It was then moved to Albuquerque, NM, where it was shut down after shots were fired in the area. It was then moved to an undisclosed location and replaced simply with a flag. According to the HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US website (via Entertainment Weekly), the project is leaving the U.S. and traveling across the pond to Liverpool, UK.
Apparently people were so divided over the message of Shia’s art project that it had to be divided from the country it was created for. HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US has been adopted by the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology. FACT confirmed the news today on Twitter.

There’s no word on what the UK edition of HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US will entail, like if it will remain a flag or go back to being a mounted camera, or if it will have a uniquely British name like STRICTLY COME DIVIDING. But I have full confidence that HWNDU will be much more successful in the UK. If trashy UK reality shows have taught me anything, it’s that you can always count on British people to bring loads of class and hours of entertainment when you put them in front of a camera.
Never has a word looked so completely wrong superimposed over a person. Lindsay Lohan has found herself a new gig that is only a tiny bit less confusing than designing headscarves.
Back in January, both Kesha and Dr. Evil’s spiritual son Dr. Luke asked a judge to amend the claims they had against each other regarding his ongoing contract lawsuit. Dr. Luke wanted his to include another allegation that Kesha, her mom Pebe Sebert, and her fans were smearing his name all over the place. Kesha, on the other hand, had a much longer list of amendments.
The New York Times says that Wyclef Jean, one third of The Fugees, was arrested and briefly detained at 1 this morning in West Hollywood. What did Wyclef do to get arrested? Well, apparently all he had to do was sort of fit the description of a robbery suspect.
It’s been four months since we’ve talked about Jennifer Lawrence and her current boyfriend, director Darren Aronofsky. Four months without an update is enough time in which some famous people could split up, hook up with someone new, get married, and file for divorce. But apparently that’s not what has happened here. They might have been laying low over the past few months, but they’re still together.
When I watch the Comedy Central show Key & Peele, I laugh. Sometimes I squint and think “Okay, I guess Jordan Peele looks like Adam DeVine.” But when Dave Chappelle watches Key & Peele, he gets sad. Sorry, A-A-Ron, but you done messed up again.
