Machine Gun Kelly Wins Alternative Album of the Year at 2021 iHeart Awards

All of the incredible music from this year, and the artists who created it all, were celebrated during the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards, including Machine Gun Kelly.

MGK, real name Colson Baker, attended the awards not only as a nominee, but also as a presenter, and took home the iHeartRadio Music Award for Alternative Rock Album of the Year for his 2020 project Tickets To My Downfall. The multi-talented artist was also nominated for Alternative Rock Song of the Year for "Bloody Valentine" from the album.

Tickets To My Downfall is Baker's fifth full-length album following 2019's Hotel Diablo, and showcases 15 songs in total which include guest appearances from Halsey, blackbear, Trippie Redd and Iann Dior.

And even though, Machine Gun Kelly won for Alternative Album of the Year, it doesn't mean he's done with rap, as he told Usher — when asked about by the evening's host, Colson replied "Never!"

MGK attended this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards with his girlfriend, Megan Fox, who starred in his "Bloody Valentine" music video. The couple wore coordinated ensembles, with MGK in a white and silver suit jacket with pink details that perfectly matched Fox's gorgeous form-fitting pink satin jumpsuit. Megan also wore a silver bag that matched her beau's outfit. And to top off the look, Colson sported a very intricate manicure with long pointed fingernails.

Baker and Fox were adorable on the red carpet together as they lovingly embraced one another. Check out some of cutest pictures from the night below.
