"Concerts are pretty much performance art," Jay-Z says in the intro of his 'Picasso Baby' performance art clip. "The venues change, and just by nature when the venues change, the performances change. You do a smaller venue and it's a been more intimate," he continued. "You can feel the energy of the people."
From Miley Cyrus' wacky antics in her colorful 'We Can't Stop' video to Lady Gaga revealing the release date of her new album 'ARTPOP,' the summer of 2013 has been jam-packed with memorable musical moments. Here at PopCrush, we want you fans to weigh in on the best and biggest stuff that happened during the summer of 2013, from the best song to the greatest magazine cover.
"Rap is thinking out loud," rapper Jay Z (no more hyphen) says in the trailer for 'Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film,' which premieres on Friday, Aug. 2 at 11PM ET on HBO and follows the Hov's appearance on 'Real Time With Bill Maher.' Make a mental note or calendar reminder now for a double dose of Jay this Friday.
Hip-hop and R&B's first couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce, were as adorable as ever onstage in Philadelphia this week. Hov surprised Queen Bey at the closing of her Mrs. Carter Show tour stop in the City of Brotherly Love, and it was probably the cutest thing ever.
Beyonce and Jay-Z continued their quest for justice for slain teenager Trayvon Martin. This time, the couple attended a New York City rally in support of the fallen Floridian, whose killer, George Zimmerman, was recently acquitted of both murder and manslaughter.
Jay Z and Justin Timberlake kicked off their Legends of the Summer stadium tour last night (July 17) in Toronto. While it was a good time summer show, the pair still made sure to dedicate their joint encore of the concert to the murdered American teen Trayvon Martin.
Jay Z has accomplished a lot with his career. He's on track to beat the Beatles record for most No.1 albums, but maybe he thought there was something slowing down his progress. That dang hyphen! It's messin' with Hov's flow! So that's why Jay Z is dropping that pesky punctuation from his name.
