Last Friday, September 28, Machine Gun Kelly made his way to The Source's Power 30 reception, which went down at Lenox Square Mall's Microsoft Store in Atlanta. And while there, he gave a raucous performance that included him jumping up on tables and eventually getting kicked out of the store.
And today, the Cleveland rapper has given an official statement on the incident. You can read it below.
“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.”
In addition, the folks at Microsoft made their own statement on what went down:
“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."
