Machine Gun Kelly refuses to have beef with Taylor Swift

Machine Gun Kelly refuses to bad-mouth Taylor Swift or Travis Kelce because he "doesn't want smoke" with her passionate fanbase.



Machine Gun Kelly refused to mock Taylor Swift out of fear of the pop superstar’s passionate fanbase.

The 34-year-old rapper - whose real name is Colson Baker - was asked to name three things he didn’t like about the ‘Fortnight’ singer, 34, by fellow rapper Trippie Redd, 24, and dismissed the request as he didn’t “want any smoke” with Taylor’s loyal Swifties or her NFL player boyfriend Travis Kelce, 34, who he holds in high regard.

During an appearance on ‘Hot Ones Versus’, he said: “Ladies and gentleman ... you have got to be out of your mother******* mind if you think I want any smoke with that fanbase.

“Also, Taylor is a saint and very nice to me, and Travis is my bro.”

Trippie joked: “Kiss her feet while you're at it.”

MGK continued: “Jesus Christ, I just ... bro, she's just very nice. She's very, very nice.”

The ‘Wild Boy’ hitmaker then clarified the offer he made to the NFL star in November 2023, when MGK said he would give Travis $1 million if he signed on to play for the Cleveland Browns.

He explained: “And also, to the narrative of people who are like, ‘That's it?’ I said I would give him $1 million spending money on top of what the NFL [pay him].

“I'm not the f****** NFL, so obviously they would have to pay him like $30 million or $40 million or whatever the f***. I said I would give him a bonus of $1 million.”

MGK’s refusal to hit out at Taylor and Travis comes as the ‘Shake it Off’ artist’s latest album, ‘The Tortured Poet Department’, saw her take aim at her previous boyfriends, The 1975’s Matty Healy, 35, and British actor Joe Alwyn, 33.

Matty broke his silence and claimed he “hasn’t listened to much” of the savage LP.

He told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “My diss track? I haven’t really listened to that much of it, but I’m sure it’s good.”
