AceShowbiz - Machine Gun Kelly sparked chatter after he was involved in an awkward interview at an F1 racing event in Brazil on Sunday, November 5. At the Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo that was won by Max Verstappen, the rock star was approached by Sky Sports reporter and former racing driver Martin Brundle for an interview.
Things got awkward from the get-go when MGK said, "I have no idea what you said, but thank you." When Martin, who is known for conducting confrontational interviews on the event's grid walk, told him that it was good to see him at the event, the musician responded, "Ah… thank you! Honored to be here."
Martin later asked MGK to talk about his career, but the "Bloody Valentine" rapper was more interested in the interviewer's "poppy." That prompted him to ask once again, "What are you saying?" to which Martin repeated, "Tell us about your career at the moment. What's going on for you?"
The boyfriend of Megan Fox took a moment before he answered the question nonchalantly. "Oh, my career. I don't think about my career." He later praised F1 racing, saying, "I think your business is great. It's loud, your life is on the line, and that's exciting... I was in a studio the other week and Lewis Hamilton was in the other studio. That was nice, yeah."
As if that wasn't awkward enough, MGK asked Martin to do an "air piano" while he did an "air guitar." Even though the sportscaster refused, MGK insisted and that prompted Martin to say, "I can't do it…. I probably need to get on."
Upset, the rapper then gave a thumbs down to the camera before storming off. Martin laughed off the bizarre interaction as he joked, "Something tells me I won't be on his Christmas card list."
Fans also had a lot to say after watching the unexpected ending of the interview. "imagine hopping on an f1 stream to see MGK doing a thumbs down," one wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. "Get MGK off this grid what is he waffling about," one other added.
"Bruh MGK getting interviewed on the f1 grid was so ducking awkward," another echoed the sentiment. Some others, meanwhile, called the interview "cringe" and "diabolical."
