Macklemore made a guest appearance “Sesame Street” and brought his own kid-friendly version of “Thrift Shop” with him. In a duet with “Oscar the Grouch” and with backup from fellow Grouches, Macklemore muses about the finer points of looking for bargains …i n the trash. I guess that’s an important lesson for today’s youth? In… READ MORE »

A Baby Macklemore is on the way! The rapper — real name Ben Haggerty — and his fiancee, Trisha Davis, posted the above YouTube video announcing that they’re expecting a baby in May 2015. First of all, I love it when people get famous and don’t ditch their non-famous significant others once the red carpet… READ MORE »

Macklemore gave a great interview with NYC’s Hot 97 in which he discusses white cultural appropriation of hip-hop and what white people can do to support the Black Lives Matter movement. (I don’t think he explained that pencil thin ‘stache though.) [Hot 97]

Last Friday, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed a surprise music concert at the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle. Awesome, right? Only, because it was a surprise, Macklemore wanted to go a bit incognito and donned a costume. But the costume was anything but awesome. To me, and many others, the costume looked like a negativeREAD MORE »

A surprise performance by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis would get me excited, sure. And that’s probably what a lot of audience members were feeling at the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle (where Macklemore’s coat from the “Thrift Shop” video hangs in the collection).

But folks all over — including SethREAD MORE »

Macklemore feels so connected to the plight of women — having to pee and poop on toilet seats soiled by slovenly men — that he wrote an instructional, reggae style rap about how dudes can have better aim in the bathroom. His Instagram video, set against the backdrop of a toilet full of his pee,… READ MORE »

I was traveling last night, so I missed most of the Grammys. I tuned in for about four minutes, in which I caught 34 couples getting married by Queen Latifah. It was like one of those strange, “Wizard of Oz”-type dreams that would be hard to explain: “It was the Grammys and Madonna was there… READ MORE »

The Grammy Award nominees were announced last night and the results were about what you’d expect — lots of nominations for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lorde, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry Justin Timberlake and, yes, Robin Thicke. I’m most excited that Kendrick Lamar got a lot of love, but am DISMAYED that Janelle Monae… READ MORE »

Village Voice: How do you feel about the critiques from the LGBTQ community about Macklemore being the figure delivering this message?

You mean, someone that’s a straight white male speaking on behalf of the entire gay community? [Laughs]. I’ve definitely heard that, and I understand where people are coming from. I think it’s also important… READ MORE »

A clever guy by the name of Andrew Hales thought he would get Halloween off to a head start and show up to a Macklemore and Ryan Lewis concert dressed like Macklemore himself. The lanky blond arrived at the Maverick Center in Utah before the concert began, decked out in a Macklemore-style outfit of a… READ MORE »

If you really want your Macklemore costume to be authentic, you would purchase all of the elements from your local thrift shop. All you need is a faux fur coat, either a pro-gay marriage T-shirt (a reference to his song “Same Love”) or a sports Jersey (the Bulls or Sonics or Celtics), gold chains, high… READ MORE »

Macklemore’s “Same Love” is a great song from a straight guy about accepting people regardless of their sexual orientation. But I love hearing rapper Angel Haze — who describes herself as pansexual — freestyle on the track about her own experience coming to terms with her sexuality. Check it out below!

Awkward. Macklemore called up a woman who was scalping tickets to one of his shows on Craigslist and gabbed to her for about five minutes in a (terrible) fake British-y accent. As far as prank calls go, it’s more uncomfortable than funny — he sounds like a lonely weirdo. But it’s kind of amazing when he… READ MORE »

Cat-holding! You’re doing it wrong. Let Macklemore show you how to properly wrangle and pet a cat — especially one who displays a shocking level of indifference/hatred regarding your very existence. It can be done, and Macklemore can help you do it, but you’ve got to be careful. Other suggested future Macklemore how-to videos include “How… READ MORE »

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis won big at Sunday night’s VMAs, taking home two moon men, one for the song “Same Love,” which features a stirring vocal hook from singer Mary Lambert. After winning the award, Lambert took to the stage with Macklemore and surprise guest Jennifer Hudson to sing the track and pretty much brought… READ MORE »

The rapper Macklemore (AKA Ben Haggerty) has always seemed to me like one of the most genuinely good people in the entertainment business. Today, I have little doubt about it. This week, he privately visited a college junior named Sam, who is suffering from leukemia, in the hospital. One of Sam’s friends posted an image… READ MORE »
