There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

There's humble and then there's downright head-scratching — this might be the latter!
The emerging hip-hop icon is nominated for Best Rap Album of the Year, but he's pulling for someone else to win!
Macklemore is actually rooting for Kendrick Lamar and hopes that his album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City takes home the totally coveted trophy!
What if you win the Grammy for Best Rap Album and Kanye spazzes and says it should have gone to someone else?
"Then he’s got a point. [In the Best Rap Album category], we’re up against Kendrick, who made a phenomenal album. If we win a Grammy for Best Rap Album, Hip-Hop is going to be heated. In terms of [that category], I think it should go to Kendrick. He’s family. TDE is family, and I understand why Hip-Hop would feel like Kendrick got robbed [if he didn’t win]. I’m not trying to compare albums; I think you can make an argument for both. With that being said, I am a huge supporter of what Kendrick does. And because of that, I would love to win in a different category. We obviously had massive success on commercial radio, and I think that, in ways, The Heist was a bigger album, but Kendrick has a better rap album."
Wait, WHAT? Grammy Awards are hard to come by!! We can't believe he's pulling for someone else!
And, honestly, given Kanye West's elephant-sized ego, we're pretty sure he's rooting for his own album Yeezus to take the cake!
The 2014 Grammys will be held on January 26th!
