Machine Gun Kelly sprayed it around during an on-air chat with Howard Stern, which covered off everything from love, buddies, enemies and switching his sound.
The Cleveland native is promoting his fifth studio album Tickets to My Downfall, which sees him tread a different musical style. MGK's previous four LPs could be pigeonholed as hip-hop. The new one is sonically pitched as pop-punk. Yes there are detractors. Kelly doesn’t care.
“I just want to go against what everyone else thinks,” he said during his debut on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show. “I make a pop-punk record … and everyone’s like, ‘You switched genres!’ To me, I just added on to the multiple things I’ve already done anyway, but, sure, what a narrow-minded way to look at things.”
