Machine Gun Kelly didn’t take home any hardware on Sunday (Nov.22), but his 2020 American Music Awards was a big night out for the Cleveland native.
Not only did the 30-year-old rapper/rocker walk his first red carpet with girlfriend actress Megan Fox, 34, but he also performed on the show for the first time.
Fox introduced the set with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker behind the kit, which included runs through the songs “Bloody Valentine” and “My Ex’s Best Friend.” MGK made an even bigger splash by performing in front of a set of pink high school lockers painted with the black Downfalls High logo, complete with the anarchy symbol in place of the A.
The announcement of a Downfalls High movie musical dropped right after the show, with a 15-second teaser video featuring glimpses of stars MGK, as well as Barker, Chase Hudson and Sydney Sweeney. The movie, described as a “first of its kind musical film experience” in a press release, is slated to drop in January.
The amped-up trailer has Sweeney asking Hudson what he wants to be when he grows up (“dead”), as they lay in the grass before MGK comes snarling in with the title track to his pop-punk Tickets to My Downfall album as scenes of high school scuffles fill the screen; the teaser notes that MGK and Barker narrate the film.
Check out MGK and Megan on the AMAs carpet and watch the Downfalls High trailer below.
