Machine Gun Kelly goes undercover as “mild-mannered reporter” on ’Kimmel’

Machine Gun Kelly took to the streets of Los Angels to find out what people truly think of his music during last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC.

For the segment, the “Bloody Valentine” rocker disguised himself as a “mild-mannered reporter,” complete with a brown wig and fake mustache, to ask Hollywood Boulevard pedestrians their MGK thoughts.

“Not a huge fan,” admits one interviewee. “I think his new direction is a little forced.”

Luckily, not everyone Kelly spoke to felt the same way. Later on the video, MGK finds a person rocking a Black Veil Brides/Motionless in White/Ice Nine Kills Trinity of Terror tour shirt, who’d seen Kelly perform during his surprise rooftop concert in Venice Beach, California, last summer.

“He’s cool, I really dig the last album,” the fan said.

Perhaps the highlight of Kelly’s undercover adventure was when someone dressed as Spider-Man walked by and immediately saw through his disguise.

“Spider-Man, you’re supposed to respect secret identities,” Kelly protested.

Machine Gun Kelly just released his latest album, Mainstream Sellout, last month. He’ll embark on a U.S. arena tour in support of the record in June.
