Shia LaBeouf is now an art installation. The actor, recently seen sporting a paper bag that read "I'm not famous anymore,"now has a gallery show in L.A. It's called #Iamsorry. One at a time, visitors select something from a table of items corresponding to his career, like a "Transformers" toy. They then go in one at a time and spend some time with LaBeouf, who is still wearing the paper bag.

NUMBER 4 - FACEBOOK PRIVACY ISSUES
A non-profit group is taking steps to make more changes to Facebook's privacy policy. The Public Citizen says Facebook has continued to use the images and information of users for advertising, without their consent. According to the group, a previous deal still allows Facebook to use images of minors without parental consent. The public citizen says this is a violation of privacy laws in several states.

NUMBER 3 - SENATOR TO SUE PRESIDENT, NSA
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul plans to sue President Barack Obama and top officials in the National Security Agency over the surveillance program.

GM says there have been 22 crashes where the airbags did not deploy, including five that caused six front-seat fatalities.

NUMBER 1 - DEADLY WINTER STORM
A deadly winter storm is barreling down on much of the east coast. Authorities worry snow and ice could cause power outages and destruction more extensive than what they've seen in past winters.
