The rapper Ben Haggerty, more widely known by his stage name Macklemore, owns a naked painting of Justin Bieber!
Remember that super popular song Thrift Shop, which was coming out of almost every radio station in 2013? It was recorded by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. And one of the men forming this successful duo is the proud owner of the most unlikely of paintings.
It was recently revealed that Macklemore has a special painting in his possession, which shows one totally naked Justin Bieber covered in maple syrup. The private parts of the Canadian bad boy are covered by a pancake with even more maple syrup and the entire painting cost $10. Strangely enough, we find it hard to believe that somebody would pay even $10 to have a naked painting of Bieber, but the rapper apparently thought it was as a must-have item.
The masterpiece was painted by a Minneapolis-based artist named Dan Lacey. Dan’s Etsy shop is filled with similar paintings, which are centered around the pancake idea. The other paintings feature all sorts of people and animals being covered with maple syrup, staring at pancakes or simply enjoying themselves while the pancakes are “sitting” on their foreheads. Apart from the naked Justin Bieber Dan has also drown some other famous celebrities in his pancake collection, some of which include Zayn Malik, Cory Monteith, Kanye West, Amy Winehouse, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, Michael Jackson, Adele, and so on. However, there are also other famous faces of politicians like President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, but there are also paintings of Pope Francis, Paula Deen, Adolf Hitler, Gordon Ramsey among many others.
All paintings in Dan Lacey’s shop are priced $10, including the naked painting of Bieber, which Macklemore now owns.
