Buzzworthy’s Tamar Anitai gets cuddled by Woodies host Machine Gun Kelly!

The 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards are about to get laced up and, well, c***-punched when Machine Gun Kelly hosts the show with cohosts Tegan and Sara. Now that we’re both in prime Austin/Woodies territory, I caught up with the Bad Boy rapper for a sit-down Twitterview, where he filled me in on “Champions,” his chances of winning the coveted Woodie Of the Year award, and his thoughts on “50 Shades Of Grey.”

Check it out below, and don’t miss the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards, airing this Sunday, March 17, at 8 p.m. ET on MTV and mtvU!

Read our Twitterview with Woodies co-host MGK after the jump!

  1. @mtvbuzzworthy time to start this interview via twitter. Ur sitting right next to me, so let’s not be awkward…
  2. @machinegunkelly SO NOT AWKWARD! How are you feeling? I’ve heard your stomach is super solid.
  3. @MTVBuzzworthy and by solid u mean in extreme pain from this insanely annoying ulcer? Yes…*emo answer*
  4. @machinegunkelly Emo rap. Love it. So how’d you go from Breaking Woodie winner and performer last year to WOODIES HOST 2012??
  5. @MTVBuzzworthy lots of push ups. There was also some involvement with employees and nipple clamps but that’s a whole nother story…
  6. @machinegunkelly I wanna hear that story. Hey so tell me how the Lace Up tour’s going. What crazy s*** have you gotten into on tour?
  7. @MTVBuzzworthy we brought a panda out on stage…we thought it would be cuddly but it ended up mauling 3 girls in the front row. RIP.
  8. @machinegunkelly Ugh. Hate when that happens!! Wait so you read 50 Shades Of Grey. Share your review. GO:
  9. @MTVBuzzworthy it was a novice book. Having a sex slave is not foreign to me. If the author mentioned her getting enema’s, it’d be an A+
  10. @machinegunkelly You should send her some fan mail and suggest it for the film. Tell me about Champions. That song’s sick.
  11. @MTVBuzzworthy it was basically laying the groundwork for me, my team, and my fans’ new mentality this year: lace up or shut the f*** up
  12. @MTVBuzzworthy I heard they like to be spoon-fed penis, so their probably occupied trying to find some down here at SXSW.
  13. @machinegunkelly Shots fired. What do you think the chances are you’ll take home Woodie Of The Year?
  14. @MTVBuzzworthy my fans don’t let me down. But I don’t want that type of pressure on them this go round. we’re happy with the nomination!!
  15. @machinegunkelly You bringing a date to the show? What’s your lady situation looking like?
  16. @MTVBuzzworthy I haven’t matured to the “bring a date to the awards” yet…I’m still in the “get laid cuz I won an award” phase
  17. @machinegunkelly I feel confident about both of those chances. What surprises do you have in store for the show?
  18. @MTVBuzzworthy honestly? None. I hope my personality suffices…if I start to suck, I’ll just start a moshpit
  19. @machinegunkelly Don’t be so hard on yourself! But it’s good to have a plan. K thx for chatting! I’ll see you at the #Woodies!

Vote for the 2013 Woodie Nominees through March 14 at 4 p.m. ET, and watch the 2013 Woodie Awards on Sunday, March 17, at 8 p.m. ET!
