Jay Z Attacked By Clingy Girls…Star Jemima Kirke, Who Then Gets Kicked Out By Security!

Filed under: Music MinuteJay Z

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

Filed under: Music MinuteJay Z

We had a feeling this would be mad AH-Mazing, and we were right!

Jay Z has done it again! Will the guy ever stop blowing us away??

We have been anxiously waiting for the release of his HBO collaboration Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film, and the wait was so beyond worth it!

The rapper extraordinaire performed Picasso Baby for SIX straight hours at New York's Pace Gallery and created a performance art piece out of it where visitors got involved and kept him going.

And we've gotta say, it's not just a performance art piece, it's a damn, friggin' masterpiece!

With stars like Alan Cumming, Judd Apatow, Taraji P. Henson, Rosie Perez and Marina Abramovic stopping by to get in on the action, this is a must see video!

The only flaw is Beyoncé didn't make an appearance!

Jay Z Is In His Blue Ivy Period In Trailer For Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteJay Z

We've heard of musicians doing encores of a song at the end of a concert, but never an entire concert of the same song for 6 whole hours!

Jay Z appeared in a recently unveiled trailer for Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film, a collaboration he did with HBO.

In the documentary, Jay Z performs the song Picasso Baby from Magna Carta Holy Grail at New York's Pace Gallery for 6 straight hours as performance art. Talk about working HOVA-time!

In attendance are Alan Cumming, Judd Apatow, and Marina Abramovic, all of whom seem to be having a pretty great time in the trailer! Usually when you think of celebrities doing performance art, we think of say, Tilda Swinton taking naps in a box, but this seems pretty engaging!

On rap and art, Jay Z had the wise words to say:

Jay-Z Performs Picasso Baby As Live Art At NYC's Pace Gallery!

Filed under: Music MinuteSIGHtingJay Z

Jay-Z is breaking some serious ground today!

The Magna Carta Holy Grail rapper has officially ventured into the live art arena, currently setting up shop at Manhattan’s Pace Gallery.

There to perform his new track Picasso Baby for SIX hours straight — much like The National did at the MoMa last May — Hova has taken to center stage, with cameras ready to reportedly document the entire performance and later compile it into the track’s music video!

The best part? It’s happening RIGHT NOW!!

Jay totally understands the power of a live performance — particularly one that’s repeated over and over! This is genius.

What's more, it looks like there are some special guests in the audience. Judd Apatow, is that you??

Ch-ch-check out some of the video recordings taken by onlookers…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
