Machine Gun Kelly Paints Tongue Black For Billboard Music Awards, Wins Best Rock Artist & Album Award – Kerrang!
While Machine Gun Kelly won two Billboard Music Awards last night (May 23), the 31– a year old – real name Colson Baker – also showed off an unsurprising look for the event: he painted his tongue black.
Documenting themselves preparing for the ceremony, MGK took to Instagram to show fans how he applied what must have been black paint or dye to his tongue as a “special accessory ”, as well as painting her nails in matching black and white.
Machine Gun Kelly beat AC/DC, AJR, Five Finger Death Punch and twenty-one pilots to win the best rock artist award, as well as to score the best rock album for tickets AC/ DC POWER UP, Plastic Hearts by Miley Cyrus, Dreamland by Glass Animals and Letter to You by Bruce Springsteen).
