One of Machine Gun Kelly’s oddest fan requests to date—to be punched in the face—has been granted.
Upon viewing a fan’s placard that read “I just came from Mexico 4 u 2 punch me in the face” during a performance at Rock Werchter in Belgium, Kelly was spotted looking obviously perplexed. A video of the incident with the caption “making dreams come true” was uploaded to Machine Gun Kelly’s Instagram page.
A complete recording of the incident was uploaded on YouTube, where more of what Kelly said was featured.
“Why do you want me to punch you in the face so bad? I got rings on dude, that s**t is gonna hurt. And if I punch you, obviously I’m gonna want to punch the f**k outta you. I’m gonna feel bad, you’re front row singing all the words. I don’t know… it’s a lose-lose for me. I don’t know if I’m gonna do it. I’ll consider,” Kelly said.
In the video Kelly is seen giving the fan a light jab before saying “I love you” to him over the microphone.

Late in May, Machine Gun Kelly dropped his most recent single, ‘Pressure’. After experimenting with pop-punk on his most recent two albums, ‘Tickets To My Downfall’ (2020) and ‘Mainstream Sellout’ (2022), the singer returns to his rap roots with the single. The song comes after his ‘Renegade Freestyle,’ in which he took aim at Jack Harlow, and his ‘Doja Freestyle’.
Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun shared the Worst Director award at the Razzies in March for their movie ‘Good Mourning’. Tom Hanks earned his first Razzie for his role in Elvis, and Jared Leto won Worst Actor for his work in Morbius.
