In “No More Parties in LA” Kanye West says, “I wish I dressed as fresh as Shia LaBeouf” and the Transformer actor is now revealing the backstory to this lyric in a new interview with Esquire. Apparently Kanye is a big fan of LaBeouf’s so called “blue collar” style and went to to his house to talk about art projects. LaBeouf says, “Around the same time, I took my mother to his concert. She is, of course, obsessed with Kanye West. When I brought her backstage, he was a fucking sweetheart to her. And it just felt fair. So I’m like, ‘Go for it, my guy. Take everything you want.’ And he did. He took all my fucking clothes.”
LaBeouf has had his own fair share of meltdowns and says he hasn’t spoken to Kanye since his onstage breakdown and canceled tour last year. During one of Kanye’s concert rants, he called out LaBeouf saying, “Shia LaBeouf: Kid Cudi feels a way. Call him” and although LaBeouf directed Cudi in a music video and short film he doesn’t understand what the beef is.
LaBeouf says he’s tried to get in touch with Kanye adding, “I fucking love Kanye West. He’s going through a lot. And I don’t know where he’s at or what he’s doing,” adding “The dude has a lot of my shit,” even his Indiana Jones hat.
