Machine Gun Kelly Issues Statement On "The Source" Power 30 Performance Controversy
Machine Gun Kelly clarifies what really went down during the performance that got him kicked out of a Microsoft Store.
On Friday (September 28), Machine Gun Kelly was slated to perform at The Source's Power 30 reception, which took place at the Microsoft Store in Atlanta, Georgia's Lenox Square Mall.
At the start of his performance, MGK hopped onto a table that had laptops and other electronics on it, and began stomping around on the table, which got his show immediately cut short and kicked out of the store.
However, Kelly disputes actually stepping on any equipment. The rapper released a statement regarding the matter:
“Last Friday, I was asked to perform at The Source’s Power 30 reception and honored to do so. My only goal was to give a great performance. Contrary to what is being reported by the media, I did not stomp on any computers, damage any store property nor were the police called on my behalf. There was some confusion as to where I should perform. 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.”
Microsoft also issued a statement:
“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."
