Jay-Z has been performing "Picasso Baby," a track from Magna Carta Holy Grail, at Manhattan's Pace Gallery for the past four hours or so. He'll reportedly do it for six total, because of art. Marina Abramovich has been hanging out and dancing with him, and so have a lot of other famous people and not-famous people, and it seems like this will all eventually turn into a pretty music video some time soon. For now, though, this clip is really the only thing I'm interested in. Bold prediction: this woman will be the first and last human to pull off this move in world history.

Not gonna say this doesn't hurt to watch. And not gonna say it doesn't hurst so good to watch. Almost unnoticeably NSFW. [via]
Good morning! I hope you had a beautiful weekend. Let's all wrench ourselves back to work with the likely first single off of Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, a track featuring some killer fills on the Timbaland/The-Dream beat, a very catchy hook from Justin Timberlake, and a clunky Nirvana riff on the chorus. In a power move that will strike you as either amusing or terrible, Jay-Z revealed the album art last Wednesday next to the actual Magna Carta in Salisbury Cathedral; Magna Carta Holy Grail is getting mixed reviews but contains a few real bangers, in my opinion.

Okay, this is a little ridiculous, but it's Friday and I think Jay-Z and Beyoncé should send Blue Ivy away for 20 years, sort of like in The Prince and the Pauper, so she can grow up normally and without knowing she's famous. Because $40K cribs and byzantium pacifiers will probably lower her chances at turning out happy and well-adjusted, and she could be so cool. Right? Jay and Bey: send her away! And visit in old cloaks, pretending to be her mysterious, glamorous aunt and uncle. Blue Ivy and the Pauper. You heard it here first.
