Machine Gun Kelly has often made fans question his decision making skills. This is a real head-scratcher, but he painted his tongue black for the Billboard Music Awards. Of course, it got immediate attention, but maybe that was the intention.

MGK, who has even beefed with Eminem to catch clout, rocked a black tongue at the Billboard Music Awards. Kelly, who is in a serious relationship with Megan Fox, posted an Instagram story showing off his tongue getting painted with Q-Tip.

“Special accessory for tonight,” was the caption he picked. Yep, his accessory for the awards show was his tongue. Most people just leave their tongue alone, but Machine Gun Kelly knows how to celebrate a special night.

Kelly was not performing or presenting on the show. Perhaps his black tongue was a poke at that fact. He did get an invite to the ceremony, and he accepted it.

He is known for his unique style, and this falls in line with that reputation. If anything, you have to give him credit for originality. Not many people would probably think to paint their tongue black, or any other color, before arriving at the Billboard Music Awards.

What do you think about Machine Gun Kelly’s choice of tongue color? Was he trying to make a statement? Sound off in the comments!

Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries.
