"Megan Fox come get your man": Machine Gun Kelly interview with Laverne Cox at Grammys 2023 leaves internet bewildered
Internet users were left stunned by Machine Gun Kelly’s strange interview with red carpet host Laverne Cox at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 5. As the former attempted to share his incomprehensible opinions, netizens hilariously slammed the Bloody Valentine singer. Others also applauded Laverne for handling the interview with grace.
During the red carpet interviews, Machine Gun Kelly’s (MGK) fiancée and actress Megan Fox stood back, allowing the singer to complete interviews on his own. During his discussion with Laverne Cox, MGK said:
“When I was out there feeling like I’m unlike what I see on the TV, I could never win because I was that kid, I was like how could I ever fit in that room and here I am in that room so I’m here ultimately to be a barrier breaker…”
Twitter user @TookNotice posted a clip of a Grammys viewer watching the interview. In the clip, a person could be heard saying in the background, “this is such a long interview and he just saying sh*t. She’s so annoyed!”
Internet users react to Machine Gun Kelly’s Grammys red carpet interview
Netizens reacted hilariously to the interview. Many could not understand what the 32-year-old rapper was trying to convey. Several people wrote online that he was giving a lengthy speech. Others also trolled the rapper for his talent.
A few reactions to the interview read:
Meanwhile, others praised Laverne Cox for handling the interview without making the rapper feel embarrassed.
Machine Gun Kelly declined to include Megan Fox in his interview
Engaged pairs often do interviews together whenever they attend the same events. To fans’ surprise, Megan Fox and MGK did not do so during this year’s Grammys.
When MGK was being interviewed by Cox, she asked him whether he would like to include Megan Fox in the interview, but he firmly declined, saying:
“She told me to give her a look if I am feeling too vulnerable or anything, but I feel alright.”
The Jennifer’s Body actress was reportedly attending the Grammys with a “broken wrist” and a “concussion.” However, it remains unlikely that this was the reason behind her not doing interviews with her fiancé.
This year, MGK was nominated for his first-ever Grammy. His album Mainstream Sellout was nominated for Best Rock Album. This comes after the rapper dissed the Grammys in November 2021 for not nominating his 2020 album, Tickets to my Downfall, for any of the awards.
