Ryan Lewis got more personal than ever on Twitter yesterday afternoon, and revealed that his mother, Julie Lewis, is HIV-positive. However, there is a bright side to his announcement, as it came tied with the revealing of the 30/30 Project, a nonprofit Ryan created with his mom and Macklemore to provide access to affordable healthcare worldwide.
“A huge part of what’s made me who I am, is something I haven’t talked about in interviews, until now,” he tweeted. He also went into detail about how his mom contracted the life-threatening disease:
“In 1984, my mom gave birth to my older sister, Teresa. Due to a complicated delivery, she needed a blood transfusion and at that moment, my mom had HIV+ blood put into her body. When she was finally diagnosed, she was given only a few years to live.”

On April Fool’s Day, the joke was on Machine Gun Kelly – and the Cleveland rapper found himself in the hospital with a broken foot and a fractured ankle. Ouch! Not that it’s ever really a “good time” to be totally inconvenienced with a major injury, but during a month where he has multiple tour dates (check them out and buy tix here!), studio sessions for his sophomore album, video shoots and his BIRTHDAY, it makes it that much more of a nuisance. Kels isn’t letting his crutches or his wheelchair stop him, though, and has made sure to handle every priority…except getting surgery yet.
“Broke the 5th metatarsal in my foot as well as fractured another bone in my ankle a couple days ago,” Kels told his EST fans. “Doc said no shows for a month but I know a lot of my shows are THIS month. I haven’t gotten surgery yet and I avoided getting the plaster cast so I could fly with it when it swells up from the altitude pressure, but long story short, I’m here and ready to perform. I just ask that you as fans be patient with me this next month or two while I wobble around with this bullsh*t on stage! Lace up.”
Now THAT’S dedication. As the saying goes, “One monkey don’t stop no show!” Check out pics in the gallery to see how MGK is handling everything with his injury. Get well soon!

I couldn’t move my body.” Read more on the crazy story after the jump!

Machine Gun Kelly was a wild boy for real yesterday, and ended up in the hospital with a broken foot and a fractured ankle. No details on what it is that he was doing just yet, but whatever it was – it clearly didn’t go well! Heading back home after his visit to the ER (alongside his manager, Ashleigh), Kels didn’t let the injury stop him as he got right back to the music and shared a photo with fans as he appeared to be writing a new song in his dining room. I’m sure the emotions from this will create some interesting tunes – as something like a broken foot is really going to get in the way of the insane performances he’s known to put on. Hopefully this doesn’t keep him off his feet for too long! Get well soon, Kels! More pics in the gallery.
