He’s one of the biggest names in music, so it’s no wonder that thousands of New Yorkers came out to see Macklemore & Ryan Lewis perform at the Rolling Stone Rebels party.
The event, presented by Bacardi, also featured the biggest DJ in the game, DJ Cassidy, and brought out Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio and actor-singer Jamie Foxx.
Seattle rapper Macklemore (who has been sober since August 2008) says it’s been a challenge to stay drug and alcohol-free since the #1 smash “Thrift Shop” turned him and producer Ryan Lewis into overnight pop stars. “The last three months haven’t been good for me – the pressure, the expectation, the lack of sleep, the stress, the traveling,” the 29-year-old rapper tells Rolling Stone. “I can’t escape Macklemore. I just want to get the f*ck out of my own head.”
“It’s been a struggle the past year,” he admits. “It’s very important to go into the rooms of AA, smell the shitty coffee and be reminded that without sobriety, I would have no career.”
Well, good for you for pushing through it! You’ve got this.
