JAY Z 'PICASSO BABY' ART FILM + HBO BILL MAHER APPEARANCE [VIDEOS]
“Concerts are pretty much performance art,” explains Jay, who shot a video for “Holy Grail” with Justin Timberlake in L.A. this week. “In a smaller venue, it’s a bit more intimate so you feel the energy of the people.”
Watch the “HIP HOP Pablo Picasso” unveil his visual masterpiece below.
Before HBO aired the 15 minute art film, Jay- joined Maher and the panel on his HBO show to discuss social, political, and pop culture issues.
Maher brought up his song “Tom Ford,” asking, “I’m sure some people are thinking, why is he on some white gay designer’s dick?” to which Jay responded with a “pause.”
He also addressed Harry Belafonte’s comments about him not doing enough for his community. “I didn’t think it was the correct venue. If it was a real problem, I’m not very difficult to find,” said Jay. “I didn’t appreciate that, especially dragging my wife into it was a bit of a low blow.”
He will be eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in seven years and wants President Obama to induct him. “He owes me a couple,” joked Jay.
He also debated with politician Barney Frank about the presence of police in the inner city. “I don’t really want to scare America, but the real problem is there’s really no middle class, so the gap between the have and have nots is getting wider and wider,” said Jay. “It’s gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve because once you have that sort of oppression and that gap is wide, it’s inevitable that something’s gonna happen.”
