Celebs React To Donald Trump's Inauguration -- See Who's Optimistic & Who Thinks It's Depressing AF!
Donald Trump is officially the 45th President of the United States.
Jay Z was lauded by many for his performance art piece Picasso Baby.
But performance and conceptual artist Marina Abramović, who collaborated with Jay on that project, is NOT one of them.
In fact, she says she is "very pissed" about how the whole thing went down!
According to Marina, she allowed Jay Z to adapt her work The Artist Is Present into what aired on HBO as Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film.
"I am very pissed by this since he adapted my work only under one condition: that he would help my institute, which he didn't.
The day before, he came to my office and I gave him an entire power point presentation and said: okay, you can help me, because I really need help to build this thing. Then he just completely used me. And that wasn't fair."
Marina says her experience working with Jay Z was so bad, she won't ever consider working with him again! She explained:
"In the end it was only a one-way transaction. I will never do it again, that I can say. Never. I was really naive in this kind of world. It was really new to me, and I had no idea that this would happen. It's so cruel, it's incredible. I will stay away from it for sure."
Dayum! Sounds like she really got a raw deal!
Jay has yet to respond to Marina's claim that he owes her.
