    Turns Out, Machine Gun Kelly Did Not Shave His Head For A Music Video

    I cannot lie, I'm relieved.

    Machine Gun Kelly did not shave his head after all.

    His newest music video, "Papercuts," sees him sporting a couple of new looks, including a shaved head and an (apparent) homage to Edward Scissorhands.

    MGK showed off his new 'do on Twitter to promote the video, and a lot of us wondered if he'd really shaved and tattooed his head or if it was just a bald cap.

    In case you were worried that his frosty locks were gone forever, don't be! HE WAS, IN FACT, WEARING A BALD CAP.

    See? Ripped it right off.

    In case that's somehow not enough to convince you, I've gathered more evidence from the video. Exhibit A:

    When he turns his head to the side, you can see some wrinkling on the head that is decidedly not skin-like.

    Exhibit B:

    And that's it! Case closed, mystery solved.
