We didn’t know Macklemore was an art collector, but he definitely owns at least one masterpiece: it’s a painting of a naked Justin Bieber with maple syrup dripping down his chest and onto his dick…which has been replaced by a pancake in the painting. It’s a little disturbing, but also beautiful and mouthwatering at the same time. We’re not sure why anyone ever came up with this, but the painting is fucking unreal.
This whole story started when Rolling Stone published an interview with Ryan Lewis (Macklemore’s possibly mute producer partner) where he gives a tour of their recording space. The space is very Macklemore: a rack of clothes covered with feathers and sequins, and a bunch of weird paintings, including one of Drake and the one of pancake-dick-Biebs. Ryan Lewis explains that Macklemore “spent a lot of time buying weird stuff on Etsy.” Props to Macklemore, because he now seems about a million times cooler than he did before.
So many questions about this painting, so little time.
