Machine Gun Kelly flexes his hometown pride in a custom jersey as he closes out final round of NFL Draft in Cleveland: ‘It feels good to be home!’

Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly made his hometown pride known as he closed out the third and final round of the NFL draft on May 1 with a very energetic performance. 

The 31-year-old Bloody Valentine singer performed from the Great Lakes Science Center, where he was seen sporting a custom football jersey and strumming on a pink guitar — both of which bore the name of his Ohio city. 

‘It feels good to be home!,’ he yelled from the draft stage, before closing out the night strong with a few tracks from his hit album Tickets To My Downfall.
