Report: Lady GaGa Says Marina Abramovic “Hated” Jay Z’s ‘Picasso Baby’

Published: Thursday 7th Aug 2014 by David


Did artist Marina Abramovic hate a Jay Z number she helped to promote last year?

Let fans of Pop princess Lady GaGa tell it and the answer is yes, spilled by the star during a tell-all conversation she had with some of them earlier on this week.

What they say GaGa told them?

Find out below…

In an open letter titled ‘My backstage experience with GaGa’, one Monster tells GaGa Daily…



After Lady Gaga’s Artrave- the Artpop Ball concert in Phoenix, AZ, July 30th, the 20 people – including myself – who bought the “ARTPOP Zone Package” for that specific city basically got to sit and talk intimately with Gaga inside a lounge backstage for around 35-40 minutes, and have a professional photo taken with her after.

I’m not originally from the US and this was my first Gaga concert ever. This was also the first time I’m actually meeting her, so needless to say, it was all a f-cking mess of emotions throughout the day.

We were told by Joya, one of Gaga’s stage managers, to grab some drinks and freshen up since Gaga takes around 30 minutes to rest and change outfits before the meet-and-greet proper.

One of the security guys was talking to someone on the walkie-talkie, and I could make out from the exchange that Gaga was already walking. And then suddenly, the security guy pulled the door open.

She slid inside – huge circular glasses, platinum dreadlocks, purple/pink-colored fur jacket, pink tank and pacifier in mouth.

It was all too much to process in one second, like a tsunami hitting the shore, only the shore was probably sh-tting himself. She was perfect. And tiny. Oh so tiny.

I could go on describing that monumental second, but I need you to stay with me on this one.

At the lounge, Gaga insisted that the approach of the meet-and-greet be like a dialogue where we hurl questions, she responds, and we all exchange thoughts.

Here are the things tackled during our dialogue with Gaga (which I could vividly remember enough to share publicly):

1. Gaga told us that she was well aware that people either hated ‘ARTPOP’ or treated it as “their entire life”. She revealed in an “FYI” manner that, STEVIE NICKS, as a matter of fact, loved ‘ARTPOP’!

2. A fan told Gaga that his toddler kids wanted to know what her “top three favorite songs to sing” were. Gaga paused for a second and thought about it and then said number one was “Black Jesus + Amen Fashion”. “I just like singing that song. It’s so gay and so wonderful.” Number two was “Sexxx Dreams” and number three was “Born This Way”.

Gaga laughed because the idea of telling his kids about “Sexxx Dreams” would be awkward and too mature for children, so Gaga said, “Just tell them “Just Dance”, “Poker Face”, and “Born This Way”.”

3. It has been speculation a few days back that Gaga might be doing a hip-hop project soon. Though she didn’t mention anything about hip-hop to us backstage, Gaga said something to the effect of wanting to do a classic rock/power ballad-type album after the artRave tour and ‘Cheek to Cheek’.

4. She was asked where film and acting falls on her future plans and she generally says that she has no plans on starring in a movie in the near future. She says that she would really like to just focus on making music and that movies can come later.

5. She talked extensively about one of her mentors Marina Abramovic and how she inspired and trained her. I’m sure there was nothing said about Marina that couldn’t be read already in Gaga’s previous magazine/TV interviews, but one thing that was sort of breaking news, I think, was the Gaga telling us that Marina hated Jay-Z’s performance art music video for “Picasso Baby”. When I asked why, Gaga simply said, “I’m not gonna tell you that,” so I guess she didn’t want the reason to go public.

Jay Z fans will remember that Marina starred in the rapper’s performance art visual for the aforementioned ‘Picasso’, shot to promote his latest album ‘Magna Carta, Holy Grail.’



The rapper is yet to respond the singer’s claims.

      Please stfu
      You are so annoying Omfg


    That isn’t even shade! She didn’t say she hated it. Lord Jesus if this website doesn’t try to start beefs!
    Get over it! So many people complained and hated what Gaga did with ARTPOP and there was no problem with that, huh? I’m sure she didn’t just blurt that out of the blue. Someone might have asked her and she told them what Marina said.


    @SUICIDEBLONDE why are you still on this site? Didn’t you announce your leave like a year and a half ago? I guess you realized you had no life to return to so here you are again. Doing the only thing that gives your pathetic life meaning.

    “Pray to God that never comes to fruition, she better don’t touch Rock and Heavy Metal music, hasn’t she hurt enough Pop music, girl!, stop it already.”

    LMAO. F****** FUNNY. The likes of Katy, Selena, Bieber are the one who hurt the pop music and one of the reason why people never really takes pop music seriously like they can’t even earn themselves a grammy’s.

    I’m here for Gaga venture into another genres of music, Classic rock sounds really cool. That’s a real artist, She dare to take the risk. She keep changing and it proves that she can do anything, You can denied anything you want about her except for her talent which I think a lot of basic b****** in the industry would wanna have especially katy basic perry who keep serving us with the same trash over and over again just to please the radio and the charts.

    Gaga can easily tear the chart down if she wanted to, She’s more than capable of producing/writing a generic pop music for the radio if her intention is to please the general public cause that’s what she did with The Fame which outselling Katy’s whole discography.

    You go GAGA.

    She´s been one of the few exciting things in mainstream music in the last 6-7 years. That alone is enough for me to respect her. And seeing how she has grown for the better musically, I´ll be checking her for a long time (I mean, her releases, not her every move, personal or tour experience, like her #1 fan @suicide blonde does 🙂 ).

  7. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 7, 2014

    “Picasso Baby” is AWFUL though! I’m a fan but his attempt was simply based upon posturing rather than the original intent that Abramovic put forth.


    I’m Here For Classic Rock Album, Go Gaga, You Can Do It Girl!!!

    @SUICIDE BLONDE, Can You For Once Shut Your Negative Biased Ass Please???
    B**** We Got Your Message, You Have Nothing Good To Say About Gaga! S*** I’m Not A Stan But You……
