Mac Miller Gives A Bizarre Explanation For Dying His Hair Pink

Recently, Mac Miller sat down with MTV for an interview where they posed the question, “What made you dye your hair pink?”. With a straight face, Mac gave the most bizarre and crazy answer that you will ever hear.

“What prompted me to dye my hair was the wonders of life and all of its mystical creations and the magic in just trying new things. It’s like going out and I just feel like I’m a mermaid sometimes. So I just wanted to get my fins wet, to be honest”

Big Day Out 2014 Interviews: Mac Miller

You may know Malcolm McCormick better as Mac Miller, the rising rap star from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who’s presently Down Under as part of the Big Day Out tour. The man himself jumped straight from the stage to the Music Feeds interview chair to talk to us about the crazy energy of his festival shows, trying new stuff on stage for the first time and all about the most Australian thing he’s ever done (hint: the answer does not involve Vegemite but might be a little NSFW).

Mac Miller’s Plan For 2014: D.A.D.D. (Do As Drake Does)

In an interview with Nessa and Katrina B at WiLD 94.9’s WiLD JAM, Mac Miller kicks things off by explaining why he doesn’t like meaningless sex. “What’s the point of it. I wanna feel something, in my heart,” he tells the ladies.

The Pittsburgh emcee then describes his new puppy, who he named Ralph to go along with his friend’s new dog, Lauren.

Miller also reveals his plan for 2014: “D.A.D.D. – Do As Drake Does.”

Watch the clip to hear Larry Fisherman discuss what he likes about Drake’s method for dropping music, Beyonce’s new LP, how he considers his dogs his children, his new music, and more.

Mac Miller Explains What He Learned In 2013, Dawson’s Creek, & More

If you take a look at the iTunes listing for Mac Miller’s newest album, Live From Space, you’ll note that the first two entries under “Contemporaries” are Sam Adams and Asher Roth, former frat rappers in arms who first got big off of realizing that drunken college kids wanted to listen to music about being drunken college kids. In that sense, Mac still has a ways to go before he completely sheds the grinning, grating persona that earned a brutal Pitchfork takedown and the enmity of every rap writer over the age of 30.

But pop culture is nothing if not forgiving, and Mac hung around long enough, and did enough drugs, to make his way down the lonely path of self-analysis toward something resembling enlightened. He hoovered up left-field sonic influences and refined his technique, which earned him enthusiastic co-signs from artists like Earl Sweatshirt and Flying Lotus, culminating in a 2013 album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off, that earned legitimate acclaim and helped wipe away some of the disdain for his earlier output.

Today, Live From Space, the 14-song mix of live recordings from The Space Migration Tour and unreleased songs that didn’t make Watching Movies with the Sound Off, is out. On the project, Mac’s backed by his house band Syd tha Kyd and Matt Martians from The Internet.

Noisey: There’s this stereotype that most rappers are better on record than they are in concert, so why do a live album?
Mac Miller: Because I wanted to show that stereotype was one hundred percent true and have both albums, so people would be like, “Okay, word.” [Pauses] That was a joke. But uh, no man, because I love performing and we have a show that’s different and it is good live and there’s maybe a couple songs where you can’t understand what I’m saying, like watching Lil B, because there’s too much screaming, but other than that, it breathes new life into the record.

Mac Miller Explains That ‘Live From Space’ “Breathes New Life” Into His Music

When we first met Mac Miller he was a teenage rap machine whose concerns orbited around cutting school, partying and the Nikes on his feet, but the Pittsburgh prodigy has grown immensely since his 2010 break out mixtape K.I.D.S. (Kickin’ Incredibly Dope Sh–).

Anyone unconvinced need look no further than Live From Space, Mac’s new live album which he released on Tuesday (December 17). The material for the 14-track LP was compiled from different stops on Mac’s 2012 The Space Migration Tour, where he showcased music mostly from his June 18 studio album Watching Movies With the Sound Off. During the run, Miller not only rapped, he showed off other facets of his musical self by playing the guitar, piano and drums.
