Jimmy Fallon Proves That No One Knows Who Ryan Lewis Is! Watch Macklemore's Partner Get DISSED Here!
You never hear one name without the other; it's always Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
But what does Ryan Lewis even do? Does anyone even know? More importantly, could anyone even recognize him on the street??
Jimmy Fallon doesn't think so. In fact he's so sure, he sent Ryan Lewis out to the street to ask Macklemore fans who Ryan Lewis is!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see their HIGHlarious reactions! You won't believe the last one!
The Charlotte crowd probably wanted nothing more than for sexy Luke Bryan to fall into their arms - but not like this!
The country star was covering Macklemore at the time, but it wasn't the ceiling that couldn't hold him - it was the stage!
Luke had barely gotten into his signature naughty, booty-shaking dance moves at the Thursday night show when he took a misstep and dropped right off the stage!
Luckily, he didn't seem hurt at all - but probably more surprised than anyone!
Ch-ch-check out the video to see the harmless and therefore HIGHlarious fall…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Macklemore Releases Official Statement About His Controversial Costume; Resemblance To A Jewish Stereotype "Never Crossed" His Mind!
He speaks! Well, he says more, technically!
Which, even if he initially denied it, we gotta admit, it does kinda look like one…
However, Macklemore took to his website to release a statement explaining that when constructing his disguise for the event, the fact that he resembled a Jewish stereotype "never crossed [his] mind."
Macklemore Denies Dressing As A Jewish Stereotype, But We'll Let You Decide If His Costume Is Offensive Or Not!
No, Macklemore. Just no.
Macklemore donned a costume that was pretty offensive in the fact that it was probably the most egregious Jewish stereotypes while performing Thrift Shop and Can't Hold Us on Friday at EMP’s Vivid event in Seattle.
Macklemore looked like a walking Jewish stereotype that would be likely to be found in the movie Borat.
Pop some tags? We're going to mop some gags…because we're practically vomiting on how gross this was.
What a totally inappropriate costume. You should know better, Macklemore.
But did Macklemore own up to his faux pas and apologize? Nope. He denied any wrong doing on Twitter:
A fake witches nose, wig, and beard = random costume. Not my idea of a stereotype of anybody.
