Machine Gun Kelly ‘going to Mars’ at Music Awards

Machine Gun Kelly has covered a wide variety of topics, some more bizarre recent, however, he’s shared his thoughts on the US moon landing.

The rapper made his thoughts on the matter known, at his acceptance speech at the American Music Awards on Sunday night.

The 32-year-old, married to Megan Fox, later insisted he was still “going to Mars”.

The star accepted his award for Favourite Rock Artist, then he used the moon landing, to defend his music after heavy criticism from rock fans, labelling Kelly a ‘tourist’.

“There have been some people in the rock community who called me a tourist, but they’re wrong.

“I’m a rocket man. We weren’t born on the moon, but we looked at it and we were curious and then we went there… supposedly… and these two rock albums were me going to the moon.

“But I’m not exploring the universe yet, and I am all genres,” he said in his speech.

The conspiracy theory refers to an alleged hoax created by the US government in order to win the space race.

Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, took some focus at the event, wearing a spiky purple suit. The 32-year-old shared a post which gained more than 800,000 likes.

In the caption, he wrote: “im not a tourist, im a rocket man…see you on mars motherf**kersss @amas THANK YOU TO MY LOYAL FAMILY WHO VOTED US FAVORITE ROCK ARTIST.”
