Macklemore Controls His Orgasms With A NSFW Painting Of Bieber’s Pancake-Balancing Boner

Last year we learned that Grammy Award winning hip-hop artist Macklemore had a strange painting in his home recording studio that pictured a naked Justin Bieber balancing a fluffy pancake using nothing more than a rock-solid boner.

Macklemore’s best friend and producer Ryan Lewis was the one that revealed the deets on artist Dan Lacey’s creation, saying the portrait also shows maple syrup seductively dripping down Bieber’s chest.

Macklemore finally spoke about the painting while on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” saying the painting now sits above his bed, and he, umm, looks at it while doing the nasty with his wife.

“It goes right above my bed and whenever I’m with my wife, intimately, I can always stare if I want to control my orgasm. Slow it down,” Macklemore said during the interview.

Yeah, that’s probably the strangest way to prevent yourself from being a minute man, but at least it’s effective.

Macklemore also explained how the painting ended up at his house in the first place, saying that he bought it as a white elephant gift, but no one took it with them, so he just kept it. Now it has become one with him.

Sorry if we ruined pancakes for you, but if anything, Macklemore just provided guys with a bedroom pro tip. Good luck with that y’all.

This Customer Got Punched In The Face, Here’s How YOU Reacted [Feedback Oct. 2]

Welcome to another edition of our weekly Foodbeast “Feedback,” where we feature your Facebook comments, and respond directly to your views on our recipes and stories.

The week was wild, and full of some crazy food news stories, and your comments were just as crazy, per usual.

We saw taco trucks in Las Vegas build a wall around Donald Trump’s hotel, a guy drink cyanide without dying, and even a customer get decked in the face for spotting on a food vendor’s grill.

You guys responded to those stories through Facebook, and now it’s our turn to respond back.

We always appreciate that you read our posts, and take the time to add your own commentary.

Here’s what made the cut this week. Think you can make next week’s list?



STORY:Taco Trucks Form A Delicious Wall Outside Trump’s Hotel in Las Vegas

It is possible, but not probable that they gave Trump’s hotel more business. Unless they fed people so many tacos that they got the Itis, and were forced to spend the night at the hotel, it probably didn’t spike the hotel’s patronage. Plus, the Trump International is so far from the heart of the strip, it’s hardly worth staying there, anyway.

Story: How To Make A Giant Cake-Sized Pop Tart

I did notice that our boy @blake_201 was shirtless. He’s actually shirtless a lot and it makes me feel sexually confused, kind of. If I was that shredded, I’d probably be shirtless all the time, too. Especially in the Foodbeast office.

Story: This Food Blogger Just Created Edible Pizza Shot Glasses

Ah, the microwaved pizza dilemma of burning the shit out of your mouth. Yeah, there’s no doubt in my mind that these pizza shot glasses will do the same, even if you let them cool down. There’s something in the frozen pizza’s chemistry that automatically burns you, regardless of what you do. Probably.


STORY: Watch This Guy Purposely Drink Cyanide In The Name Of Science

That’s exactly the face I made, when I saw him chug that cyanide water. Thankfully , he was all right, but damn.

Story: This Hot Sauce-Filled Shot Made A Guy Crawl In Agony And Quit This Show

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Sean is not a pussy! A terrible human being, maybe, but not a pussy. Plus this shot looked brutal. I’d love to bet that y’all would cringe after taking that shot.

Story: Justin Bieber’s Used Glass Of Milk Is Currently Selling For $70K On eBay

To this day, I would eat Britney Spears’s anything.


Story:Watch This Guy Get Punched Out After Spitting On A Vendor’s Food

Yeah, the guy didn’t know what hit him. That’s what he gets for being a dick. He’s lucky he didn’t end up on the floor like Pacquiao.

Justin Bieber’s Used Glass Of Milk Is Currently Selling For $70K On eBay


Justin Bieber’s arguably one of the top 5 music artists in the world in terms of popularity, and after eight years, the Bieber Fever hasn’t died down.

If you don’t believe me, look at this eBay listing for his unwashed glass of milk, selling for 65,900 euros (about $72,364), as of this posting.

Kings Oak Hotel in the UK snapped some pictures of the Biebs as he had a low key dinner at the hotel. They said the popstar ate some mash, salmon, and washed it all down with a glass of milk for some reason.

One of the hotel employees preserved that glass of milk, not even washing it, and then put it up on eBay for a ridiculous bidding war. The listing also claims that the proceeds will go to a charity, so at least it’s not a total waste of money.

The next listing might not be legit, seeing as how they used the same photos as King’s Oak, but now someone is trying to sell Bieber’s napkin, claiming that they grabbed it before staff could clear out the table.


That auction is not doing quite as well, with a $1.20 bid so far. Good try, though.

If you have enough money to blow $70,000 on a glass, you should be able to, or at the very least pay your way into a meet-and-greet with the guy, right? What are you going to do with a dirty glass from a random hotel?

Whatever. It’s not my money.

Have fun with your dirty Bieber glass.

Justin Bieber’s Card Declined At Subway, Fan Comes To The Rescue

Regardless of how famous or wealthy certain celebrities are, sometimes their credit cards have a mind of their own. Justin Bieber found this out the hard way, when he recently tried to pay for a meal at Subway, but had his credit card declined.

Did someone say embarrassing? Maybe so, but Justin got bailed out real quick when a fan reportedly covered his tab, according to the Daily Mail. We don’t yet know who the generous fan was, however, a video posted on Twitter shows Justin shaking hands with someone inside the Los Angeles restaurant. 

We’ve seen Justin react much more violently, so maybe the handshake gesture was an actual sign of humility from the young artist.

It’s safe to assume Justin probably just maxed out his daily credit limit by purchasing a few pairs of $2,500 Yeezy Boosts, and will most likely be able to purchase his next meal.

Why Every Big Player in Silicon Valley Goes to This Chinese Restaurant


Silicon Valley is known for a multitude of landmarks, including the garages Apple and Google were started in, the Facebook campus, and the IBM Almaden Research Lab. The one landmark, however, that perhaps garners the most universal praise from the best and the brightest of the area is Chinese restaurant Chef Chu’s.


Started by Lawrence Chu in 1970, Chef Chu’s has been the go-to place for the Bay Area’s tech elite, celebrities and politicians. Tennis superstar Serena Williams, platinum-selling artist Justin Bieber and former Intel CEO Craig Barrett have all frequented Chu’s establishment. The late Apple founder Steve Jobs also used to be a regular before he became a recognizable tech titan.


“He’d come in here as a nobody,” Chu told Mercury News in a 2012 interview. “He’d wait 45 minutes to get a table and all of a sudden he’s on the cover of Time Magazine. I was busy making a living. I didn’t know who he was.”


In the mid-1980s, when then Secretary of State George Shultz needed to hold an emergency meeting with other high-ranking officials in the Reagan administration, he held it at Chef Chu’s.


Even though he’s been in business for 45 years, the 72-year-old Chu still goes to work with seemingly the same passion and drive he started with. He’s frequently in the kitchen helping the staff and tries greeting every single customer that walks through the door.


Silicon Valley futurist Paul Saffo once said: “No restaurant has had the longevity of Chef Chu’s for either quality of the food or popularity with the valley’s movers and shakers. It’s as vibrant and lively as it’s ever been.”


Most recently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has become a regular at Chef Chu’s.

Chu tells NextShark: “Mark Zuckerberg comes in here all the time. Him and his wife Priscilla came here last Sunday. Their parents too, they moved from the East Coast.”


Even with all the celebrity attention, Chef Chu believes in one core philosophy when treating customers: “Whoever comes in here, we should treat them the same. For a simple reason: they all pay the same price. Whether they’re an engineer, doctor, governor.”


Aside from his restaurant, Chu has published three cookbooks, started a catering business, and created his own cooking classes.


Chu, born in China and raised in Taiwan and Hong Kong, stayed behind when his family moved in the early 1960s to California where his father went from being an architect to a restaurateur in Silicon Valley. A couple of years later, at the age of 20, Chu moved as well.


His first job was as a busboy at Trader Vic’s, a Polynesian restaurant in San Francisco. He recounts: “In the restaurant, we worked so hard and I found out that I loved restaurants. It’s very famous as well. I was there; I met all celebrities there. I was a busboy, waiter, bartender. Then I told myself, one day I want to do something like this. Maybe not a busboy, but I want to do something of my own.”


At the time, he was trying to woo his future wife, Ruth Ho, who was then a PhD student at Stanford University. He’d often joke to her that he was also a PhD: poor, hungry and determined. Chu successfully wooed not only his future wife, but also his future father-in-law, who was a successful entrepreneur.


“I told the father that I had a dream. I said I want to open fast food Chinese restaurants in America. The father liked me. They all liked me in a sense, but they never asked my education. They only said, ‘This guy is 25 years old and has a dream.’ ”


It was in 1970 that Chu decided to follow through on his dream of starting his own restaurant, opening his first fast-food Chinese restaurant in a space that used to be a small laundromat between a beauty salon and appliance repair shop.


Six months later, he took over the beauty salon’s space in order to expand his venture into a sit-down restaurant. Three years after that, with money he saved over the years and from an investment from his father-in-law, Chu purchased the entire complex and completely renovated his restaurant, including the installation of a state-of-the-art kitchen.


Although by then a successful restaurateur, Chu wanted to be a chef and worked tirelessly to learn from the chefs he hired at his restaurant, perfecting his culinary skill through practice and trial and error.


“I worked my butt off. I collapsed in my bed every day. I cooked for 20 years in the kitchen.”


After his father’s restaurant was closed down by the health department, Chu went to college for two semesters to learn how to properly run a restaurant in order to make sure the same fate wouldn’t befall his own restaurant. To this day, Chu takes cleanliness and hygiene at his restaurant as one of his top priorities.


“Personal hygiene is very important. That’s 24 hours every second, every minute of the job. When you decorate the plate, everything on the plate should be edible. You cannot just put a flower there because it looks good. Everything on the plate should be edible.”


Initially, Chu wanted to open a chain of Chinese restaurants all over the country but he eventually decided to just focus on one. At 72, he’s still learning and regularly travels to Asia to discover new culinary secrets.


“People always ask me why I have only one restaurant. ‘Why do you work at 72? Why don’t you hire people and open two or three restaurants?’ The type of restaurant that I run is totally different than the type of restaurant that you run. It takes a lot of hard work but ultimately you must be a leader.”


You have to have a great team behind you. For them, it is just another job. For me, it is my life. Most people work for me 20 to 30 years and retire. Why? They knew that they could trust me and that I would not let them down and that I was passionate. You have to demonstrate that you are a true leader.”


Chu is not the only successful person in his family. His middle son, Jon M. Chu, is a successful director who has helmed films like “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” and “Step Up 2: The Street.” His other son, Larry Chu Jr., has joined his father in the kitchen and plans to take over the restaurant someday.


“Since Larry joined me [it has] allowed me to cut about 50% of the worry.”


Even with all his knowledge and success, Chu admits that he will forever be a student that doesn’t stop learning, to which he credits as a major reason for his success.


“Most people [say], ‘Chef Chu, you should retire. You have all the money in the world.’ I’m coming here [because] I’m proud of what I do. I’m making history. I believe my philosophy, my method. I trust my instinct. I trust my burning desire that we put 100 percent in the business and don’t stop improving. I don’t say change for the sake of change. Don’t stop advancing. Don’t stop because the world is running, the world is changing.”

Justin Bieber Egged His Neighbor’s House Last Year And Now He’s Being Sued For It


TMZ is reporting that Justin Bieber is being sued by his former neighbor whose house was egged by the freshly minted 21-year old singer, along with some of his arguably shitty comrades.

The dude suing Biebs claims that he and his wife suffered emotional distress after the Biebs’ bodyguard called him “little Jew boy.”

According to the reports, Bieber egged his neighbor’s house, plead no contest to vandalism, went on probation and then shelled out $80k for repairs on the damage he caused (wtf kind of grenade eggs was this kid hurling?!).

The allegations don’t stop there. The lawsuit brought on by neighbor Jeff Schwartz claims that Biebs and his crew were reckless in their Calabasas neighborhood — having loud parties, drag races and spitting on Schwartz (Biebs of course denies that).

I remember egging.

I also remember high school.

McDonald’s Canada Creates a Useless App to Protect Your Fries From Thieves

fry thief

It seems that fry theft is a pretty serious issue in Canada, as McDonald’s Canada claims that 99 to 100 percent of Canadians have, or will have their fries stolen at some point in their lives. That means not even Drake, Ryan Gosling, nor the mighty Justin Bieber are safe. The only safe Canadian is probably Wolverine. Good luck trying to swipe his fries without getting claws to the chest, bub.

There is a feature in the McDonald’s Canada app called the Fry Defender. It has a motion sensor, so you just leave it next to your phone, and if you ever have to take your eyes off your food, you activate the app’s alarm system. If any of your friends think they’re Danny Ocean and try to pull a heist on your fries by hovering their hand directly above your phone, it’s over, as the app will put them on blast and sound an obnoxious alarm.

Watch the video below if you’re OK with a Canadian dude saying, “aboot” and “have bean.”
Thank you, Canada for backing something that’s absolutely worthless. Just stick to ice hockey and Poutine.
