Macklemore Explains Why He Has a Justin Bieber Painting in His Studio

In March, the Internet discovered that Macklemore owns a naked oil paining of Justin Bieber with a syrup-drenched pancake draped over his “area”.  The piece hangs in the rapper’s studio apparently, but we never knew why until now.

Macklemore told TMZ, joking at first, “It’s an investment piece. I think that that painting is going to be worth a lot of money. I search eBay and Etsy for fine pieces of art. It cost me about $20, I’m pretty sure that the minute that the Justin Bieber album went No. 1, I’m pretty sure that painting went to about $30, $33. Do the math, man.”

The rapper then revealed he actually bought the piece as a white elephant gift but the person left it at his studio and that’s the actual story.

If asked does it inspire him to make better music, “Probably not,” he replied.
