Marina Abramovic Apologizes For Calling Jay-Z A Flake

The Marina Abramovic Institute has issued a non-apology apology on behalf of performance artist Marina Abramovic.

Abramovic accused Jay-Z, in an interview with Spike Art Magazine, of reneging on their deal to help out her institute in exchange for the art piece in Jay-Z’s video of “Picasso Baby.”

Jay-Z denied that he’s not a man of his word and provided receipts that he did pay (via Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, the producer of the “Picasso Baby” video):

“Thank you for your donation,” says a receipt from the Hudson, New York institute, according to New York dealer and “Picasso Baby” video producer Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn of Salon 94, who read parts of the document to artnet News over the phone Wednesday morning.

The receipt is marked with the number W984804 and acknowledges a substantial donation, Greenberg Rohatyn said.

The Marina Abramovic Institute then issued an apology… to Marina Abramovic!

For basically not telling her that Jay-Z did pay.

How embarrassing.

Honestly, this pretentious woman.

She’s my enemy, I hate her.
