Machine Gun Kelly celebrated his sold-out headlining show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden Tuesday by giving himself an injury.

Following the concert, MGK posted a series of photos on Instagram showing his face covered in blood. The culprit, as seen in a since-expired Instagram Story, was a champagne glass, which Kelly smashed onto his head during a celebratory after-party.

Kelly and his healing scar then went on NBC’s Late Night Wednesday and offered host Seth Meyers an explanation.

“You know when you clink a champagne glass with a fork to get people’s attention?” Kelly asked.

“Yeah, I didn’t have a fork,” he added. “So I just clinked it on my head.”

Meyers then quipped, “In medicine, they call that, ‘Asking for it.'”

In addition to all the glass smashing, Kelly’s trip to NYC included a visit to the iconic Empire State Building, which lit up in pink in honor of the MSG show and the musician’s new Life in Pink documentary.

“Thank God I didn’t have a champagne glass up there,” Kelly laughs.

Machine Gun Kelly’s tour continues Friday in Milwaukee.
