We didn’t see this coming, but we’re not surprised either.
Macklemore made headlines recently for name-dropping Iggy Azalea and Miley Cyrus in his buzz single, “White Privilege II,” but there’s something more pressing to address than white privilege, and that’s Macklemore owning a painting of Justin Bieber, nude, drenched in syrup with a pancake balanced on his d–k.
Let all of that sink in.
Mack opened up his private life for a new profile in Rolling Stone, and while there are many relevant topics regarding his music to write about, I’d like to inform you further of this revelation.
On the ground floor is a recording room with a ton of audio gear, a wall of guitars and racks of outlandish garments spouting sequins, fringe and feathers. “Those are Ben [Haggerty, Macklemore’s real name]’s,” [Ryan] Lewis notes. There is a kitschy velvet painting of a bald eagle, an oil painting of Drake dancing and a transfixing rendition of a naked Justin Bieber with maple syrup pouring down his chest onto a pancake balanced on his boner.” Ben spent a lot of time buying weird stuff on Etsy,” Lewis says.
The artist of the painting, Dan Lacey, tells Vulture “it represents what he’s coined the ‘Prescient Pancake’ phenomenon. ‘To me, pancakes happen at a spiritual level,’ he explains, ‘sometimes expressing themselves as eroticism.’”
His art pop could mean anything.
By the way, the oil painting of Drake mentioned above might be this (also created by Lacey).
Talk about a sticky situation (*gets out credit card*).
