Machine Gun Kelly went from the “Blonde Don” to the “Bald Don.”
Yesterday (August 10), the 31-year-old musician shared a screenshot from a FaceTime video with Cole Bennett, a music video director.
“i shaved my head for this @_ColeBennett_ ‘papercuts’ tomorrow 9pm” MGK wrote on Twitter and his Instagram Story.
Sure, the photo is teasing a collaboration, but we can’t help but focus all of our attention to a wide-eyed Colson Baker (MGK) with a new, bald head catching the light with a big tattooed symbol smack dab in the middle of his head.

It’s unclear whether Baker previously had this tattoo and it was covered by hair or if the ink is new. As we earlier reported, he and Travis Barker got matching forearm tattoos to commemorate their latest joint album, Born With Horns.

People on Twitter are hating on the new bald ‘do:
One person simply wrote, “NO.”
NO— joelle 🇵🇸 (@joelleborhuh) August 11, 2021
Another bashed both of his latest hairstyles writing, “i hated your mop cut but i think i hate this more.”

Some speculated it’s just a bald cap:
the head shape looks so wack it has to be a bald cap, you can see it raise higher towards the top— ᵃˢʰ (@TakenLeaf_) August 11, 2021
One fan posted a video of MGK walking around bald, wearing a silver outfit. The lack of tattoos also supports the theory that he was wearing a bald cap.
And it looks like he lost his tattoos as well as his hair...😭— Susan Winn (@SusanWi85716520) August 11, 2021
While some embraced the shiny head:

One fan said that girlfriend Megan Fox would never have approved of him shaving his hair off:
First off we KNOWWWWW Megan would not approve but more importantly we know you didn’t really do this Kels lol— Nicole McAndrew (@NicoleMcandrew) August 11, 2021
Megan Fox actually got “el pistolero” (Spanish for “the gunman”) tattooed on her last November as a reference to her man’s stage name.
