Macklemore owns X-rated painting of Justin Bieber

Macklemore owns a unique X-rated painting of Justin Bieber, his friend Ryan Lewis has revealed.

In a profile in Rolling Stone magazine, the rapper - real name Ben Haggerty - was found to have an unusual piece of art hanging in his Seattle, Washington, home.


His partner-in-crime, DJ producer Ryan, led the publication on a tour of Macklemore's home, and told them the Thrift Shop hitmaker owns a velvet painting of a bald eagle, an oil painting of Drake dancing, and a naked Justin Bieber with maple syrup pouring down his chest onto a pancake balanced on his nether regions.


"Ben spent a lot of time buying weird stuff on Etsy," Ryan adds.


The piece of art is by Dan Lacey, who creates bespoke paintings on the craft website. A copy of the painting can be yours for just $1, E! Online reports.


The rapper was profiled by the magazine in a serious piece about his battles against anxiety and alcohol addiction, as he prepares to kick off the world tour for his new album, This Unruly Mess I've Made.


Macklemore has no time to rest, after he announced back in August last year (15) that he and girlfriend Tricia Davis had got married and welcomed daughter Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty into the world.
