Machine Gun Kelly Wins Favorite Rock Artist at 2021 American Music Awards
According to Machine Gun Kelly, the rock star’s age is still alive and well. I mean, we already knew that, of course – there’s Corey Taylor, Dave Grohl, Bruce Dickinson, and we’re pretty sure Keith Richards is still having fun somewhere. But they’re not really who our favorite weed personification, Megan Fox’s âfuture baby daddyâ refers to.
Last night (November 21), Kellz took home the Favorite Rock Artist Award at the 2021 American Music Awards. Receiving the honor, the rapper turned punk rocker said that the age of the rock star “seems pretty much alive to me. Though never – gesturing so humbly to infer that it was actually him who was responsible for ensuring that the rock star’s age hadn’t kicked the bucket once. for all.
Credit to him though – he actually did to earn the award, and he has a cult following of fans who support every one of his releases and defend his every Slipknot slate move. So there’s at least some proof in the pudding, even though MGK isn’t the kind of rock star we’re used to.
In his acceptance speech, Machine Gun Kelly honorably dedicated the award to “all budding musicians – whoever wants to play an instrument, wants to rap, wants to sing.” Not just rock artists, but all artists who are rock stars.
âWell, I just want to say this, I read a headline that said the rock star age is dead, but feels pretty alive to me,â he concluded, looking at himself.
Other artists nominated against MGK for Favorite Rock Artist were Foo Fighters, Glass Animals and All Time Low.
