Macklemore purchased a bizarre painting of Justin Bieber last year, and he finally explained why he did it on Thursday’s episode of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

The painting, which can be seen here, features a pancake in an interesting location. Let's just say the painting is a LITTLE NSFW before you click on it. 

“I bought it on Etsy as a white elephant Santa gift that at the end of the night just stayed at my house,” Macklemore told host Andy Cohen. “No one took it.”

Macklemore claims to be very happy with his purchase. “I’m very proud of it,” he said. “And it’s become a huge headline."

The "Same Love" rapper claims the painting is in his bedroom, so how does his wife feel about that? Well, you can watch the whole segment above. 

Macklemore previously told TMZ he considered the painting to be “an investment piece.”

“I think that that painting is going to be worth a lot of money,” he said. “I search eBay and Etsy for fine pieces of art. It cost me about $20. I’m pretty sure that the minute that the Justin Bieber album went number one, I’m pretty sure that painting went to about $30, $33. Do the math, man.” 

The painter, Dan Lacey, told Vulture last year that there’s a deeper meaning to his work.

“To me, pancakes happen at a spiritual level, sometimes expressing themselves as eroticism.”
