Machine Gun Kelly gave a hair-raising performance on Friday – literally, as he shared he got electrocuted, with his hair standing up on his head as a result.
The rocker shared a clip of the incident on his Instagram Stories, showing this blonde locks raising vertically upwards as he sang at the Waste Management Phoenix Open performance. The singer tried to head bang to bring his hair down but it didn’t fully work, leaving some still sticking out, before he retreated down the stage.
“YOOO I GOT ELECTRICUTED [sic] AND MY HAIR STOOD UP,” wrote the 32-year-old rapper across the video.

Video released by TMZ showed that it happened on more than one occasion, with the publication clarifying that no emergency services were called.
Most recently, the Emo Girl singer was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album for his 2022 album Mainstream Sellout, though he ultimately lost to Ozzy Osbourne, who won for his LP Patient Number 9.
The young singer reflected on his loss, later saying on the red carpet that he was “really happy to be in the company of such great musicians” and that losing the award was a “lesson.”

“I felt like I lacked self-love, and I was valuing myself so much on career accomplishments that I needed this. The car ride here was very cathartic for me,” he said.
“I need to appreciate what I already have, and once that self-love happens for me, things like the awards and all that will come.”
His fiancée, actress Megan Fox, also commented on the loss in a lengthy Instagram post.

“Congratulations on being in the very small percentage of artists who have received a Grammy nomination,” the 36-year-old wrote.
“You have handled this process with a grace and maturity that I haven’t seen from you before, and I’m so proud of you.
“Watching you walk in humility and gratitude, watching you grow into yourself and become a better man is an immeasurably more satisfying experience than watching you accept an award.”
