Machine Gun Kelly showed up at the Billboard Music Award 2021 sporting a black tongue. Find out why was his tongue black at BBMAS 2021.
The singer stepped up his fashion game for BBMAS 2021. The rapper, who the Top Rock Album award for Tickets to My Downfall appeared on the show alongside his girlfriend and actress Megan Fox.
However, aside from his funky clothes, what caught the attention of many fans was him sporting a black tongue. The singer also documented the process of getting ready for the BBMAS on his Instagram.
Why is Machine Gun Kelly’s tongue black in BBMAS 2021?
The Bad Things singer did not reveal the explicit reason behind having a black tongue at the Billboard awards.
However, he took to his Instagram to document the process of getting ready for the show. In one of his Instagram stories he posted a video of painting his tongue black and wrote, “special accessory for tonight.”
Hence most probably Machine Gun Kelly meant for his black tongue to be an accessory. In the video, we see that someone had physically painted his tongue with a Q-tip.
But the footage leaves many questions unanswered, as we don’t know what is that black substance being applied to his tongue. It could be food colouring or vegetable dye.
Along with black tongue, the singer sported an open button white shirt under a black blazer and black pants. He also sported a funky looking pearl necklace with matching earrings.
