Why is the guy who swept all the rap categories at the GRAMMYs hated by rap fans? How can a guy who wrote a song about marriage equality be hated by those who also support gay marriage? We’ve got some answers.
While some people are praising Macklemore’s performance, others are focusing on some rather questionable tweets he wrote back in 2009.
“I just want my music to be accessible and for people of any demographic to enjoy it, and I try to approach that in songwriting and in the way that it’s crafted. I love pop music and I want to be able to make pop music with depth, that’s maybe heavier,” Lambert said.

Along with their recent success, the duo discussed touring with their pals in fun., the importance of having artistic freedom and what Macklemore’s “Same Love” means to them.
“This is an issue that’s at the forefront of civil rights in the world and it’s cool that the song has lined up with that issue,” the rapper says.
Originally written in support of Washington state’s legalization of same-sex marriage, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love” is posed to become not only the duo’s next big hit but also an anthem for marriage equality.
