Shia LaBeouf sure has ventured far from his Disney roots. The awkward star of "Even Stevens" has turned from nerdy geek to handsomely chic and has no problem showing off his body and giving it all to the camera.
In the new Sigur Ros music video "Fjogur Piano" that lasts nearly 9 minutes Shia appears completely naked. Between the music video and reports he's agreed to go all the way with sex scenes in a new Lars Von Trier film it almost seems that Shia has decided to take an edgy turn in his acting career.
The actor reassures fans and critics this isn't an experimental phase for him saying he's "not choosing to be naked all the time." "We were just playing characters," he said.
Shia is one major star we don't have a problem seeing naked. What other celebs have taken it all off in the name of music?
In her video "Window Seat" Erykah created quite the stir when she stripped naked while walking through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas where JFK was assassinated. Erykah defended her video calling it a piece of performance art, but critics and fans still were not pleased with the controversial video or her defenses for it.
The judges weren't buying it either when she was charged with "disorderly conduct" and had to pay fines and spend 6 months on probation for her nude actions.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
This band has had their share of controversy but they really pushed people over the edge when they appeared nude on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1992 during the height of their success. Although fans of the band loved their daring personalities we can bet the magazine received plenty of angry letters that month.
Tori had fans and critics surprised when the album artwork for her 1996 "Boys for the Pele" third studio album featured the singer letting a baby pig nurse from her nipples. The singer is well known for her feminist and controversial views and the album went on to be one of her best albums of her career.
