Earlier this year, Machine Gun Kelly switched things up in his music, achieving the most success with his record, ‘Tickets To My Downfall’. His showed a brand new side to the musician, with it under his MGK namesake.
In a segment on CBS This Morning ahead of Play On: A Benefit Concert, MGK opened up to Anthony Mason about the different sides to his personality, responding to the question, “Would you ever wanna do an album as Colson, or not?” by stating, “I don’t think so. No. That guy is a way different guy. They don’t get along at all, dude.”
He continues that he is finding a balance between various ‘ledges’.
“I’m trying to get away from those ledges; it’d be nice to be on a plateau,” Machine Gun Kelly ponders, before interrupting himself: “No it wouldn’t, I don’t like that. I always wanna be on a ledge, man. I think you’re always gonna be more aware, and more exciting and excitable when you’re about to fall. As long as I keep my balance, I prefer to just be on that ledge.”
“You’re comfortable being uncomfortable,” responds Anthony.
“Yeah,” MGK agrees. “That’s how art should be.”
