This Is Art: Jay-Z Lip-Synching For Six Hours In A Gallery

The real artist here is that lady with a broken foot riding around on a scooter.

Because Jay-Z is not going to let Kanye West be hip hop’s premiere artiste, he queefed out his own “performance art” piece at Pace Gallery in NYC today. Jay-Z mostly lip-synched “Picasso Baby,” a track off his new album “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” while a bunch of people including guests like Marina Abramovic danced around. Jay-Z sometimes stopped to rest his mouth and let other people sing and breakdance (see video below). Jay-Z is going to do this for six hours and the whole thing is being shot for a music video. Expect Kanye to take this as a direct threat and to respond to this threat by spooning with Tilda Swinton in a glass box for a thousand hours.

CEDAR has a bunch of Vines if you need to see more of this mess. For the grand finale, I’m sure Blue Ivy Carter will float to the middle of the room and blow holy saliva bubbles for an hour straight.
