Recently, Marina Abramović recently spoke with Spike Art Magazine telling them that she was upset that JAY Z did not go through with his promise to donate to her institute as a returning favor for her appearance in his “Picasso Baby” video. She had shared that she was “very pissed by this since he adapted [her] work only under one condition: that he would help [her] institute.
