It’s fair to say Macklemore and Justin Bieber are complete polar opposites in the music spectrum.
But they’ve somehow come together in what can only be described as an incredibly insane story, which involves a pancake being balanced on an erect penis. Yes, really.
What the thrift shops can’t provide, Etsy can it seems. Macklemore is a big fan of the site apparently and is the proud owner of a nude painting of Justin Bieber with pancakes covering his penis. Because, why not?
This bit of trivia comes from Rolling Stone’s Macklemore profile, in which Ryan Lewis explains the decor of Macklemore HQ.
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’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.’
It’s likely that they were referring to the work of pancake artist Dan Lacey – unless there are several portraits of Biebs dripping in maple syrup with pancakes on his dick, which would be quite a worrying sign of the times.
Apparently the painting commemorates Bieber’s vacation in Bora Bora, according to the artist.
If you want to be scarred for life you can by the print on Etsy, with ‘Justin Bieber Nude With Pancake’, only setting you back $10. What a bargain!
Maybe it was this tweet from the Biebs a few years back that inspired Lacey?
Im thinking pancakes for breakfast….with some nice maple syrup. Who doesnt love maple syrup? I love maple syrup….

Who knows, but none of this still makes any sense whatsoever.
