Machine Gun Kelly Refuses To Say Sorry For Microsoft Dustup
Machine Gun Kelly is one of Diddy’s Bad Boy rappers, but the “Bad Boy” title goes way past his record label. He recently explained why he stands by a recent wild performance at a Microsoft store, which led to him getting escorted out the store by police.
His on-stage conduct, included the rapper flipping the bird to one fan and jumping on the tables where computers were on display. After he released a tweet with an image from the show, he released a statement the following day, in which he said he meant no disrespect.
“There was some confusion as to where I should perform,” the statement read. “But, in the end, it was all resolved. I’d like to thank The Source for the opportunity and let the people at Microsoft know I meant no disrespect.”
When asked if his statement was an apology to Microsoft, MGK pushed back.
“I didn’t say that. I am a performer,” he told Jenny Boom Boom of Hartford’s 93.7. “I went to the store and went on the stage and saw a table and just hopped on it. I don’t need to apologize for not doing anything wrong. The only thing I did was stick up my middle finger to someone I didn’t know. So my bad to whoever that was… I was doing my thing.”

Machine Gun Kelly also recently performed at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, which will surely be another chance for the rapper to let his wild side free. While he was coy with the details of his performance, MGK dropped a clue on what fans can expect from his BET performance. “Someone had to pay $15,000 for a harness,” he said. –Tyler Roman, Hot 93.7/Hartford
