>MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS
CONGRATULATIONS ON “THRIFT SHOP” GOING NO. 1.
RYAN LEWIS: We are all very happy. We had a big cheer this morning.
MACKLEMORE: I thought it would be a niche song, but now it’s No. 1 in the country, which is weird to say out loud!
YOU WEAR SOME WILD OUTFITS IN THE VIDEO. WHAT’S THE ODDEST THING YOU EVER GOT AT A THRIFT SHOP?
MACKLEMORE: Signed pajamas from [Seattle Sonics basketball player] Shawn Kemp. But I never wear them. You never wear another man’s pajamas.
YOUR SINGLE “SAME LOVE” PROMOTED GAY MARRIAGE.
MACKLEMORE: It’s p—– some people off. But it’s a personal issue for me. I grew up with gay uncles and a [gay] godfather in a very gay neighborhood of Seattle.
YOU WERE RECENTLY ON ELLEN FOR THE SECOND TIME. HOW’D IT GO?
MACKLEMORE: I gave her a jean jacket with her face on it. She thought it was hilarious. She’s probably wearing it now.
LEWIS: She’s incredible, everything you’d hope— a real human being.
ANY OTHER BIG DEVELOPMENTS?
MACKLEMORE: I just proposed to my girlfriend, and she said yes. We scaled a mountain. I got down on one knee and told her how much I loved her. It was really beautiful.
