‘Girls’ actress Jemima Kirke was removed from Jay Z shoot



Jemima Kirke has now officially joined the ranks of women who’ve thrown themselves at Jay Z.

During a filming of a performance video promoting his new album, Jay Z rapped the track “Picasso Baby” to an audience made up of members of the art world, including the “Girls” star.

The seven-hour shoot must have made her a bit stir crazy, because at one point Kirke, whose grandparents are of Iraqi-Israeli decent,  jumped on the rapper’s back and stayed there until she was removed by security.

“She was acting totally nuts!” a witness told the New York Daily News. “She kept jumping on his back like a little monkey.”

Apparently, though, Jay Z kept his cool, rhyming continuously throughout the entire overzealous hugfest.

The 10-minute video, which begins with footage of Jay Z talking about performance art, was released over the weekend.
