Machine Gun Kelly known as Colson Baker, has officially altered his name on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.


The artist, now referred to as 'mgk', made the change following his revelation that he had undergone extensive black ink tattooing on the top half of his body.

Speculation surrounding a potential name change arose in November when Kelly requested photographers to address him as 'Machine' at the GQ Men of the Year event. However, he swiftly returned to using his original moniker shortly afterward.

Despite the alteration on streaming services, Kelly continues to maintain his machinegunkelly handle on platforms like Instagram.

While his profile now reads 'Colson xx blonde don,' no formal announcement regarding a name change has been made by the artist.

On February 21, he surprised fans by unveiling his latest body art, a blackout tattoo covering his upper torso.

The dramatic inkwork, shared on his Instagram, features a solid black design across his chest and arms, with glimpses of his original tattoos peeking through.

Captioned with 'For spiritual purposes only,' the post followed Megan Fox's recent debut of a new sleeve tattoo at a Grammys viewing party.
