Jay Z’s ‘Performance Art’ Now an HBO Film With Judd Apatow + Alan Cumming [VIDEO]
Jay Z (formerly Jay-Z) recently lip-synced the song ‘Picasso Baby’ off his new album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ in a gallery for six hours straight and called it “performance art.” Now you can call it something else: an HBO film entitled ‘Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film.’
Bonus: Much like ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ or ‘Snakes on a Plane,’ you immediately know what it’s about.
No word yet whether the HBO project (premiering on the cable network Aug. 2 at 11:00 p.m.) will join the six pieces of art Hova promised would accompany the album — which already include displaying the album cover next to the actual Magna Carta and the aforementioned performance art.
Next? We’re hoping he does a one-man version of ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail.’ LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN, PEOPLE.
