Marina Abramović Apologizes to Jay Z

+

After Marina Abramović’s explosive claims that Jay Z didn’t pay her for appearing in his “Picasso Baby” music video, she’s officially eating her words. According to the Faderthe Marina Abramović Institute issued a public apology, saying the performance artist “was not informed of Shawn ‘Jay Z’ Carter’s donation from two years ago when she recently did an interview with Spike Magazine in Brazil.” In the heat of this drama, Abramović has been criticized for being as corporate of an artist as Jay Z, and this entire media fiasco provides further validation for such finger-pointing. She must be incredibly disconnected from her own Institute to be so unaware of major financial moves like this—authenticity at its finest, kids.
