Machine Gun Kelly has explained why he smashed a glass on his face after he was seen leaving a party covered in blood earlier this week.
The rapper and singer made headlines after he going a little too wild during a performance at an after party in New York following his show at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday (28 June).
Video footage from the event saw MGK - aka Colson Baker - singing his song 'My Ex's Best Friend' when he took a champagne flute and whacked it against his head - a move that shocked both his fans, and his wife-to-be Megan Fox.
Shortly after, the pop punk star shared photos of his bloody face to Instagram, revealing that the impulsive move had left him a little worse for wear.
The pics, showing blood gushing from the singer's right eyebrow, earned him over half-a-million likes - though some concerned fans couldn't help but wonder what had pushed him to do such a thing.
In an interview with on Late Night With Seth Meyers the following evening, MGK explained what lead him to the decision.
"You know when you clink a champagne glass with a fork to get people's attention?" he began.
"Yeah, I didn't have a fork, so I just clinked it on my head."
Elsewhere in the interview, Seth Meyers pointed out that the last time Machine Gun Kelly had been on his late night chat show, he had cut his hand open after smashing his guitar up during his MTV VMAs performance last year.
The singer joked: "Yeah, I'm going to start having doctors around me every time I have Seth Meyers on my schedule."
The champagne flute incident closely follows news of Machine Gun Kelly's Hulu documentary Life in Pink, which offers viewers a sneak peek into the singer's personal life.
A description of the doc, which first aired on June 27 reads: "Machine Gun Kelly's Life In Pink is an in-depth look at the dramatic highs and lows of an artist chasing music’s top spot while tackling noise from the outside world, stardom, fatherhood, and more."
The film will also focus on MGK's relationship with his father, who sadly passed away back in 2020. The 'Emo Girl' singer admits that his dad's death sent him through an intensely low period, which led to a very worrying phone call with Megan Fox.
Thankfully, Kelly claims to be in a much better place today, and describes his relationship with Fox as 'otherworldly'.
Life in Pink is currently available to watch on Hulu, ESPN+ and Disney+.
