On the evening of Wednesday 30 March 2022, Machine Gun Kelly went live on the social-audio app Stationhead to interact with his fans and give an exclusive, in-depth overview of his newly released album, Mainstream Sellout. After MGK announced the exact time he would go on air on Twitter, we knew we had to tune in—otherwise, who else would bring you all the hot goss? Here’s what went down.

While in the middle of playing his second song of the show, ‘god save me’, the rapper-turned-rocker interrupted it to reveal to his fans that he “did go out into a desert, Lake Powell” where he allegedly had a paranormal experience.

“I saw like 30 World War I bomber planes disappear into a cloud. I also saw a plethora of lights going through the sky like a highway—it was a trip,” MGK shared. Sadly, if you were expecting this story to contain more details, well, that’s all the artist decided to share.

He went on to play ‘make up sex’, a track where a female voice can be heard asking ‘Do you even play guitar?’. Addressing the fact that many MGK fans believe it’s the infamous Megan Fox saying this, the musician explained that it is in fact his assistant.

Next, he decided to play ‘emo girl’ which features Willow Smith on vocals. MGK shared that “my chorus was originally ‘emo girl’ and hers was ‘emo boy’,” but then she changed it to “emo girl, and it was history.”

Then came ‘ay!’, which the musician said was submitted by rapper Lil Wayne right before the album was due, adding that Fox was actually the one who encouraged him to include the track on his album.

To wrap up his show, MGK played his favourite song on Mainstream Sellout, ‘sid & nancy’, which was apparently inspired by a text. He added, “I drank a bunch of cough syrup—to be transparent, I was in a zone. I was freestyling this whole thing in the studio in my old house.”
