Rapper Machine Gun Kelly made some bizarre act during a concert in Los Angeles this weekend — he threw back a giant shot of vodka and then proceeded spitting it into the mouth of a girl fan.
According to reports, 22-year-old Machine Gun Kelly was performing at the Rock the Bells festival in San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Sunday — when he took a massive swig out of a vodka battle, then walked into the audience with the liquid still in his mouth.
The moment he found his lady target, he reportedly spat the vodka into the girl’s anxiously-waiting mouth.
A rep for the Rock the Bells told media outlet TMZ, Machine Gun Kelly was booted out of the event following his performance, but it was not because of the vodka swig. Apparently, it was due to an “action that happened backstage.”
As of press time, details surrounding the “action” that got the rapper kicked out are still unclear.
Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Richard Colson Baker, is signed to Bad Boy and Interscope Records. His stage name was given due to his rapid-fire lyrical flow and is also a reference to notorious criminal George “Machine Gun” Kelly. Baker rose to fame after releasing his first four mixtapes, “Stamp Of Approval” (2006), “Homecoming” (2008), “100 Words and Running” (2010), and “Lace Up” (2010). He has been featured as well in “XXL.” In mid 2011, MGK signed a deal with Young and Reckless Clothing while in December 14, 2011, MGK was named the “Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2011” by MTV. On March 18, 2012, MGK won the MTVu Breaking Woodie award.

Local rapper Machine Gun Kelly did more than just perform on stage on Sunday morning – he also made a small detour to prison after he was arrested by the local Florida authorities due to disorderly conduct.
According to reports from the website of Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, 21-year-old Machine Gun Kelly (real name Richard Baker) was taken into custody shortly after 4:00 a.m. by the police for reasons of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Florida officials would not disclose any details about Machine Gun Kelly’s apprehension, however, the word “brawling” has been listed in the offense description on the sheriff’s website.
Shortly after Machine Gun Kelly was released due to disorderly conduct, the rapper said in his Twitter page, “Just spent my entire night in a f**king Florida jail…s**t escaladed way to quick last night, it always does with us though” then he added, “The weirdest part of it was how many inmates in there knew who I was… It was some trippy s**t.” After which he also tweeted, “Thanking God that only half of us went to jail, that @216XPLOSIVE is outta the hospital, and that we get to go back to Cleveland today…”
The native rapper is currently touring and performed at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg last Saturday night. Machine Gun Kelly’s next tour date is in Los Angeles on February 8. We hope there will be no more detours and disorderly conduct, MGK.
