After publicly condemning Jay Z in an interview, saying "he just completely used me," Marina Abramović has issued an apology. "Marina Abramović was not informed of Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter's donation from two years ago when she recently did an interview with Spike Magazine in Brazil," reads a statement sent out by the Marina Abramović Institute in Hudson, N.Y.. "We are sincerely sorry to both Marina Abramović and Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter for this, and since then we have taken to appropriate actions to reconcile this matter." Perhaps Abramović was alerted to Jay Z's donation by the producer of his "Picasso Baby" video? Earlier today Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn told Artnet she has a receipt for Jay Z's donation and a thank-you note from Abramović's institute.
