Many fans supported him and said he deserved to be recognized. “Trust me. You deserve a Grammy but the Grammys don’t deserve you,”One fan . “You deserved that nomination for ttmd more then anything with it being a number one album, having a sold out tour with it, and for bringing back that entire genre,” Tweet another.
Machine Gun Kelly’s reaction was understandable considering the new album. “Tickets to My Downfall,”Billboard 200 chart’s top spot, MGK soared to the top. MGK has just won the American Music Award, Favorite Rock Act, despite not receiving a Grammy nomination. Fans vote a lot for the AMAs, and that is what really matters.
