Machine Gun Kelly may not have won an award at the Grammys Sunday (Feb. 5), but his fiancée still couldn’t be more proud of him. In a sweet Instagram post two days after the 2023 ceremony, Megan Fox praised the “Emo Girl” singer for how well he handled the loss.
Here Are the 2023 Grammy Awards Winners: Full List
“Congratulations on being in the very small percentage of artists who have received a Grammy nomination,” wrote the 36-year-old actress, who attended the awards at her fiancé’s side. “You have handled this process with a grace and maturity that I haven’t seen from you before and I’m so proud of you.”
Born Colson Baker, MGK was up for best rock album with his 2022 set Mainstream Sellout, which debuted atop the Billboard 200.

Like, I felt like I lacked self-love, and I was valuing myself so much on career accomplishments that I needed this. The car ride here was very cathartic for me … I need to appreciate what I already have, and once that self-love happens for me, things like the awards and all that will come.”
