Today's Evil Beet Gossip
Macklemore

Surprise! Macklemore’s an anti-Semite!

macklemore

Macklemore is a major fucking toolbox – in fact, he’s an entire tool shed. He’s somewhat (ironically?) aware of his own bullshit, and yet still has no problem profiting from it. Then, when he does something too directly offensive to be otherwise interpreted, he feigns ignorance and pretends he has no idea what you’re talking about. After all, Macklemore’s just a super nice guy! He sang that ‘Thrift Shop’ song! Come on, cut him some slack!

Except… no. Macklemore – real name Ben Haggerty – performed a surprise concert at Seattle’s EMP Museum on Friday, during which he wore… a stereotypical Jewish get-up.  The fake nose, beard and black mop top wig were completely over-the-top and seemingly had no place within his performance… so what the everloving hell?

But hey, he didn’t mean anything! That costume meant nothing, it was just “random”!


Oh man, fuck off, dude. Seriously. Some people on Twitter had better soundbite responses than me, so I’ll just leave it to them:





Ugh.

Macklemore Knows He Won the Grammy Because He’s White

macklemore kendrick lamar

Macklemore is kinda a dickhead. Sure, everyone thinks he’s super great because he sang a song about gay rights and got all the credit even though a) tons of other gay/lesbian artist from all genres have been singing the same messages for years and b) the crux of the song is actually Mary Lambert’s, who’s a real live lesbian but is relegated to the background throughout all this Macklemore hoopla.

The thing is, he knows this and he banks on it. In fact, he pretty much predicted that he would win Album of the Year at the Grammys over Kendrick Lamar (who actually deserved it) because he’s White and the world loves white people.

From Hot 97:

“Knowing how the Grammys usually go, I knew that there would be a great chance that we’d win that award and, in essence, rob Kendrick. That’s what happened. It kind of sucks. I think we made a great album. I think that Kendrick made a better rap album.”

“In terms of the people voting on those ballots, filling out those bubbles, we have an unfair advantage due to race, due to the fact we had huge radio success, due to the fact that our name was circulating more in a pocket in the industry of people filling out that ballot.”

*Groan* Oh, brother. Also, he doesn’t ACTUALLY care about how he “robbed” Kendrick; he’s more worried about patting himself on the back for publicly acknowledging that Kendrick deserved the Grammy (even though he couldn’t do it on stage during his acceptance speech, WHEN IT MATTERED) than he is about being sincere. No one who means that shit feels the need to post a text on Instagram that he sent Kendrick saying he recognises him as the true winner. GIVE ME A BREAK!
