Machine Gun Kelly Explains The Issue Over The Power 30 Performance Controversy
Machine Gun Kelly explains what really happened during his 30 Power performance that ended up getting him kicked out of the Microsoft Store.
On Friday, September 28, Machine Gun Kelly performed at The Source’s Power 30 reception, which took place in a Microsoft Store in Atlanta, Georgia.
Once Machine Gun Kelly started his performance he jumped on a table that had electronics and laptops on it and started stomping around on the table. The Microsoft workers saw what he was doing and cut the performance short and ended up kicking him out of the store.
Machine Gun Kelly in the other hand stated that he didn’t step on any equipment and just wanted to give a perfect show for his fans. The rapper released a statement regarding this issue:
“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 released a statement stating:
“On September 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.”
