Two years after collaborating with American rapper, Jay Z on his music video, , Marina Abramović, says she felt used by the Tidal boss.

Speaking with Spike Magazine, the performing artist said, "There was one reason I agreed to work with Jay Z that I can't talk about. I am very pissed by this, since he adapted my work only under one condition: That he would help my institute. Which he didn't."

Continuing, she said, 'The day before, he came to my office and I gave him an entire power point presentation and said: okay, you can help me, because I really need help to build this thing. Then he just completely used me. And that wasn’t fair. This is very different from Lady Gaga, for example, who has done great work for me. Just by having 45 million followers, she brought all these young kids into my public.

'And in the end it was only a one-way transaction. I will never do it again, that I can say. Never. I was really naive in this kind of world. It was really new to me, and I had no idea that this would happen. It’s so cruel, it’s incredible. I will stay away from it for sure,' Ambramovic reeled.
