'Machine Gun Kelly Day' becomes an official holiday and we are confused

What did he do to have a whole 24 hours dedicated to him?

In what could possibly be the most random celebration to come out of 2022 - we can now get the crew together to celebrate Machine Gun Kelly Day!

Yep, Machine Gun Kelly will now be celebrated annually in his hometown Cleveland - legally.

Cleveland mayor, Justin Bibb, honoured MGK over the weekend with an official document declaring that August 13 will now be known as ‘Machine Gun Kelly Day’.

It all went down just hours before MGK began his final concert, wrapping up his North American ‘Mainstream Sellout Tour’.

During a press conference earlier in the day, Bibb presented Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, with documents establishing the city-wide holiday at the singer's Cleveland coffee shop, 27 Club Coffee Co.

"It's officially a holiday in the city of Cleveland! These are happy tears," MGK captioned the video. "thank you @mayorbibb and thank you Cleveland."

"Four years ago I met MGK, and I didn't know someone loved the city of Cleveland as much as I did, but he does, and so today is officially Machine Gun Kelly Day," Bibb told a crowd of screaming fans in a video posted to MGK's Instagram. 

Bibb also posted a photo of himself and MGK at 27 Club Coffee Co.  

"Today is officially @machinegunkelly Day," the mayor tweeted. "We're Cleveland until the day we die."

Following the press conference, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame organised a free event just so fittingly named 'Machine Gun Kelly Day,' which featured live music from local performers as well as a display of one of MGK's tour outfits as well as his signed signature pink guitar.

MGK's Cleveland show was supported by opening acts Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, Trippie Redd, 44phantom and WILLOW.

What an epic lineup!

I don't care how weird of a holiday this might be, I’m catching a flight for next year's celebrations.
