Here's a lesson for all the rappers out there: If you're thinking of performing with a fake nose, make sure your prosthetic of choice is closer to Digital Underground than Macklemore.

The Seattle artist became the center of a social-media controversy on Monday when images and video began to circulate that showed him performing "Thrift Shop" in a prosthetic nose and fake beard.

Critics say the costume, which also included a black mop-top wig, made the rapper resemble an anti-Semitic caricature.

Macklemore Thanks Ellen DeGeneres for 'Same Love' Success

Originally posted 01/28/2014 01:45PM

Fresh from their four wins at the Grammys, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis credit famous fan Ellen DeGeneres with helping make "Same Love" a hit.

"We have a lot of praise to show you, because this was the first time that we ever performed live on television," Macklemore, 30, told DeGeneres Tuesday's episoe of her talk show. "You got behind 'Same Love' before anybody else did. Before it was a radio song, before it was out there with the video on MTV, you were behind it."

The duo first appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2012, when they performed "Same Love" – a gay rights anthem that went viral on YouTube – with vocalist Mary Lambert. Since then, the comedian has been a big advocate for their success. Macklemore and Lewis have sold 1.3 million albums and garnered more than 900 million YouTube views, impressive feats considering they are independent artists without a music label.
