What Started The Feud Between Corey Taylor And Machine Gun Kelly, Alicia Taylor Clarifies

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor’s wife and dancer, Alicia Taylor, reacted to accusations about the ongoing feud between Corey Taylor and Machine Gun Kelly by highlighting the one who actually started the feud on her Twitter account.

According to some resources, this beef between Corey Taylor and Machine Gun Kelly began when Taylor stated in an interview that he hates new rock musicians who are only making rock songs because they have failed in the other genres. Most people regarded it as an indirect insult to Kelly, who recently released a rock album.

Then, Machine Gun Kelly responded to Taylor during his performance at Riot Fest, saying that he is happy about not being a 50-year-old who wears a weird mask. Kelly faced a backlash from metal fans after his harsh words about Slipknot. Also, Corey Taylor answered by stating that he is acting like a child. Therefore, many people claimed that Corey Taylor started this argument with his indirect criticism of Kelly.

However, in her recent tweet, Corey Taylor’s wife Alicia drew attention to Kelly’s previous words, with which he targetted rock musicians who are wearing comfortable shoes on stage. Alicia emphasized that the Slipknot frontman wasn’t the one who initiated the feud between him and Machine Gun Kelly, even though most people thought otherwise.

Here’s what Kelly previously said about rock musicians:

“The state of rock and roll depends on rockstars. I gotta see some ‘f*ck you,’ I have to. I want some attitude, dude. This is what I f’*king hate. I did Warped Tour and these people would wear comfortable shoes onstage every day. F*ck your Nike and New Balances comfy shoes because it makes you feel comfortable.

Put on some Dr. Martens, put on some Chucks, put on some Vans. It’s not about you, it’s about the show. You don’t look cool, man. I hate your feet, I hate your f*cking shoes, I hate everything about your rock and roll’s not comfortable, it’s uncomfortable. It’s a metaphor. Your shoes are a metaphor, f*ck you.”

Alicia Taylor’s tweet read as follows:

“You guys missed what kicked it off.”

A fan added:

“This guy makes my head hurt.”

Taylor responded:

“Me too- but I’m tired of people thinking Corey started this out of nowhere.
