Last night on Real Time with Bill Maher, Jay Z made a guest appearance to premiere his new ten-minute video for “Picasso Baby”. The beautiful visual spectacle begins with Jay Z giving his opinion on modern day performance art and then the visual segues into him performing “Picasso Baby” for throngs of amazed spectators. Numerous celebrities and fellow artists make cameos including Alan Cumming, Taraji P. Henson, Fab Five Freddy, Wale, and Judd Apatow. The shooting for the live performance was done last month at the Pace Gallery in Manhattan, the inspiration behind the performance came from Marina Abramovic‘s “The Artist Is Present” exhibit (Abramovic is also featured in the montage having stare-downs with Jay). “Picasso Baby” was directed by Mark Romanek.
