Machine Gun Kelly Says He Didn’t Trash Microsoft Store
Machine Gun Kelly says that he’s a ‘Wild Boy’ and apparently he got too wild for the folks at the Microsoft Store in Atlanta last weekend. MGK’s in-store performance got a little crazy as the Bad Boy rapper stomped on a table that displayed some expensive computers.
MGK’s rowdiness caught the store employees off guard and after a couple of minutes they quickly shut down his performance. Afterward, rumors starting circulating that the Cleveland rapper’s event, which was presented by the Source magazine, ended abruptly because he destroyed the computers in the store.
During an interview with Sway on MTV’s RapFix Live, MGK denied that he cause any damage in the retail space whatsoever. “I didn’t trash any computers. I basically walked in there, wanted everyone that was in there to see my performance and basically just lived the image people see me as, and that’s a real image,” he said. “And I think that people just got shocked and scared, but I wasn’t going around disrespecting people’s computers.”
Meanwhile, Microsoft issued a statement about the incident that reads:
On Sept. 28, The Source held a private event at the Microsoft Lenox Square Store. We offer our stores as a venue for the community to use, and this event was not sponsored by Microsoft. While the artist’s behavior was appropriate for a concert, some of it was not appropriate in a store environment.”
After watching the video (see below), we think the Microsoft people jumped the gun just a little bit. While MGK did get a little wild during his performance, he didn’t trash any computers. However, we understand Microsoft’s concerns about the situation. We certainly didn’t want to see any computers crash. Get it? Oh, never mind.
