Jay-Z Is Super Busy Today Lip-Syncing for Hours in the Name of Performance Art [PHOTO, VIDEOS]
At the time of this writing, Jay-Z is currently at New York’s Pace Gallery lip-syncing ‘Picasso Baby’ — a song off his new album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ — and he has big plans to do it over and over. For six hours.
You can keep your “Tilda Swinton in a box.” THIS is performance art we can actually get behind.
The lip-synching, which is being filmed, will likely eventually be pieced together to make a music video. But for now? It’s just art. Because Hov says it is.
In fact, it may one of those “6 pieces of art” Mr. Carter recently teased on Twitter that he’ll be doing to promote his new record. (We’re assuming that displaying his album cover next to the actual Magna Carta counts, too.)
You can check out videos of the current goings-on below, and if you’re in the area, head on over to the Pace Gallery and check out some of the only art us civilians will ever be able to understand.
