Remember when Jay Z spent six hours at the Pace Gallery in New York City earlier this month?
You know, that time he lip-synched to “Picasso Baby” in front of museum goers and invited the likes of Judd Apatow, Alan Cumming and the great Marina Abramovic?
Well, we now have a better idea of the finished product, all in the name of performance art.
On Friday, HBO released a 31-second preview of Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film, set to premiere on Aug. 2 at 11 p.m., appropriately following Jay Z’s appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher.
“Rap is painting out loud,” Hova says in the preview voiceover. “And you’re putting your fears and vulnerabilities and insecurities to music… concerts are pretty much performance art.”
Jay Z is still on top.
Nielsen SoundScan’s latest numbers have placed the rapper’s 12th studio album, Magna Carta… Holy Grail on top of the Billboard 200 charts for the second week in a row, beating Sara Bareilles‘ The Blessed Unrest, which sold 68,000 copies domestically. [via MTV]
In third place is children’s album Kidz Bop 24 – the 24th edition of child-friendly covers of pop songs like Taylor Swift‘s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” Selena Gomez‘s “Come & Get It” and Justin Timberlake‘s “Mirrors.”
Despite being on top of the charts, Magna Carta‘s second week performance (129,000 copies) is a 76 percent drop from its official debut week. The 658,000 copies Hova has sold so far does not include the units distributed by Samsung and its nifty app days before the album hit stores and iTunes.
Jay Z and JT recently kicked off their Legends of the Summer stadium tour. The duo is scheduled to play in San Francisco on Friday, before dropping by Pasadena, Calif. and Vancouver, Canada to wrap the month. August dates include stops in Detroit, Boston and Philadelphia.
Her face said it all.
Beyoncé got a big surprise when her husband, Jay-Z, walked out on stage while she was performing in Philadelphia on Thursday night.
The singer was in the middle of introducing her dancers and band when he snuck up behind her, grabbing her around the waist and planting a kiss on her cheek. As the crowd went wild, he rushed off stage.
Beyoncé posted the pics of the sweet moment on her tumblr blog, and it’s clear by the expression on her face that it wasn’t a pre-planned appearance by her husband.
Jay-Z and the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy, have been accompanying Beyoncé on some of the dates of her Mrs. Carter World Tour.
Before Blue Ivy Carter was born, Beyonce and Jay-Z were smitten with yellow. As in, the Coldplay song of the same name.
During Beyonce’s HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream, which aired on Saturday night, the 31-year-old singer gave fans a rare look at her private life with her husband of nearly five years.
Borrowing some lines from the British band (and close friends of the couple), Bey and Jay can be seen serenading each other over dinner after finding out that the “Crazy In Love” singer is pregnant.
“This baby has made me love him more than I ever thought I could love another human being. It’s just, I love him so much. We almost feel like one. I don’t know how to describe it,” Beyonce says in a voiceover.
The moment gets even sweeter when Beyonce changes the lyrics just a bit, singing “Jay-Jay I love you so.”
The 90-minute documentary was one of two huge Beyonce events that aired on Saturday. Queen Bey also sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a new episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter on OWN.
“I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man,” she tells Winfrey at one point. “It gives me such a foundation.”

Entertainment news reports JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE has released his official music video for his newest single, “Suit & Tie.”
After disappointing teasing us with a lyric video of his first single titled “Suit & Tie” from his new “The 20/20 Experience” album (his first in years), Justin Timberlake finally dropped the music video for the song on his website on Valentine’s Day.
In the swing era-inspired black-and-white video, which was directed by his “The Social Network” director David Fincher, both Justin and featured artist Jay-Z are seen recording in the studio and performing on stage with different sets of dancers.
It was a music video obviously made for the timeless JT.
