Rapper Jay Z was wrapped in a hug by Girls star Jemima Kirke during the filming of HBO's documentary Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film.
The only problem? Jemima wouldn't let go, and her antics were not a planned part of the performance.
Jay Z performed Picasso Baby for SIX straight hours at New York's Pace Gallery, all in the name of
being awesome performance art.
At one point, Jay Z personally serenaded Jemima, like he did with many celebrities and members of the art world in the documentary, while she sat on a gallery bench eagerly bouncing along to his flow.
However, not long after that, Jemima was seen latching on to Jay Z like a barnacle. A hungry, hungry (yet beautiful) barnacle.
At that point in the edited documentary, Jemima doesn't appear again. Apparently, that's because she had to be forcibly removed by security off-camera at the event, because she was all like "I'll never let go Jay."
Jemima literally jumped on to Jay's back, and was apparently in an
Empire altered state of mind, as she kept hanging on as Jay Z walked around and tried to continue to perform.
Here's what one witness had to say about her hug gone wrong:
“She was acting totally nuts! She kept jumping on his back like a little monkey. Someone was screaming ‘Get her off of him!’…He kept rapping the whole time!"
While being escorted out, Jemima was apparently kicking (HI-YA!) and pleading to security to "let us finish!" Nothing like kicking and begging to change security's mind about your threat to Jay Z's safety.
Man, if Beyoncé was there, she would have definitely carried out Jemima herself. That Sasha is Fierce!
