The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards are just a day away, broadcasting live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on August 25, and you never know who might run into while you’re in town. Macklemore, for one, had a little hang time with his fellow VMA performer Robin Thicke in New York on Friday night.
Macklemore snapped a photo of himself with Thicke, throwing up the deuces backstage at their pre-VMA Lifebeat show at Terminal 5. Naturally, the ladies on Macklemore’s Instagram account were definitely into it, with, caitxxoreo immediately suggesting, “You should do a duet together” and theloganstephens quickly, adding, “Too much perfection in one picture.”
To date, Macklemore boasts a pretty impressive selfie collection, which recently included a photo of himself and Justin Timberlake — before or after their memorable frozen yogurt date.
On Sunday night Macklemore will follow his mtvU Woodies and MTV Movie Awards performances with another energetic set at the MTV VMAs, and don’t be surprised if he’s up on the stage a few more times during the course of the night. He and his partner in crime, Ryan Lewis, are nominated for six awards this year–including Video of the Year with “Thrift Shop” and Best Hip Hop Video with “Can’t Hold Us”–tying with Justin Timberlake.
Robin Thicke, who premiered his new “Give It 2 U” video on MTV last night, will also perform at the VMAs. He’ll go up against Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for Video of the Year with the Pharrell and T.I.-featured smash “Blurred Lines.”
The VMA pre-show kicks off at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday (August 25), followed by the main show at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
