It seems that Justin Bieber‘s naked body partly inspired Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ latest album This Unruly Mess I’ve Made given that’s what is on the wall of their studio.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis built a studio in Seattle and they have decorated with your standard studio gear like guitars and audio gear but they have also included a number of questionable pieces.
Macklemore gave Rolling Stone a tour of his studio and they found a bunch of weird and wonderful things including “racks of outlandish garments,” a “kitschy velvet painting of a bald eagle,” and “an oil painting of Drake dancing”. They don’t even come close to his most captivating piece though, “a transfixing rendition of a naked Justin Bieber with maple syrup pouring down his chest onto a pancake balanced on his boner”.
While Bieber’s junk is tastefully covered by pancakes, the painting is kind of NSFW given that it barely covers the popstar’s penis, which if you’ve been anywhere near the internet over the past few months you’ve probably seen.
The painting was done by Esty seller Dan Lacey who sells prints of his paintings. His past works include Taylor Swift with pancakes on her head, David Duchovny with pancakes on his head and Kanye West with, you guessed it, pancakes on his head.
You can pick up a print of the Bieber painting for around $14 if you’re into that sort of thing.
Vulture reckons that the painting was inspired by a tweet by Bieber back in 2010. Im thinking pancakes for breakfast….with some nice maple syrup. Who doesnt love maple syrup? I love maple syrup,” he tweeted, not knowing it would one day be the inspiration for a masterpiece.
