Why does Macklemore own a painting featuring Justin Bieber without clothes?


Macklemore has been making the rounds lately to promote his second studio album Gemini, but we’re once again fixated on a story he’s trotted out again about a naked Justin Bieber painting that’s proudly hanging in his home.

Last year, Rolling Stone described his home thusly: 

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,” 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.
