Machine Gun Kelly has opened up about the negatives of constantly being in the limelight.
In his latest interview, the rapper even reflected on his “lowest lows.”
Scroll down for the full story!
Now, Kelly and Fox aren’t exactly your most conventional couple.
The eccentric musician, who is responsible for hit tracks such as “Wild Boy” and “Till I Die,” started dating Fox a few months after she had separated from her husband of more than a decade, Brian Austin Green.
The pair met on the set of the Indie flick, Midnight In The Switchgrass, in March 2020…
And immediately hit it off, with a source telling E! News that they had “been hanging out a lot since their movie was shut down,” and that “the downtime has been good for them… They are intrigued by each other and having a lot of fun.”
The pair were frequently spotted out and about together…
And were even seen sharing the odd kiss here and then – yet, regardless of all of this, there was no official confirmation of their blossoming relationship.
A couple of months on from this, the actress’ now ex-husband, whom she shares 3 children with, addressed the romance rumors.
Recalling the moment Fox told him about Kelly – real name Colson Baker – he said on his podcast: “I was shocked and I was upset about it, but I can’t be upset at her because she didn’t ask to feel that way. It wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt.”

But he admitted that Kelly is a “really nice, genuine guy.”
“I’ve never met him, but Megan and I have talked about him,” Austin said. “They’re friends at this point, and from what she’s expressed, he’s a really nice, genuine guy, and I trust her judgment.”
And later that month, when Kelly released the music video for his new song, “Bloody Valentine”…
All of the romance rumors between him and Fox were unanimously confirmed.
Fox starred in the video as Kelly’s domineering girlfriend…
And even shared an almost-kiss with the musician, thus stoking further speculation about their relationship.
A month later, Kelly seemed to allude to his new relationship, tweeting a lyric from the new track.
“I’m calling you girlfriend, what the f**k.’ Life imitated art on that one,” he wrote.
And, a few days later, Us Weekly reported that Kelly and Fox were officially dating.
“Megan and MGK have gotten more serious and are officially dating and referring to one another as boyfriend and girlfriend,” a source told the outlet. “They’re enjoying spending more and more time together and have a strong connection.”
Ever since the pair seem to have been going strong.
In their first joint interview together, Fox said she felt an “astrological connection” between them.
“I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame,” she recalled. “Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”
However, some aspects of their relationship have certainly raised eyebrows over the past year.
The internet exploded in July 2020 when Kelly opened up about a rather intimate detail surrounding their courtship.
In a virtual interview with Teen Vogue, Kelly expressed his affection for Fox’s feet.
Yes, her feet.
“It’s no secret. I think feet are beautiful,” he declared. “And I think Megan has the most beautiful feet that exist.”
He also admitted to asking Fox to highlight her feet for the video with a cameo.
“I was like, ‘Megan, you already know what I’m about to ask you.’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, I literally got a pedicure just because I knew you were going to ask me that’,” he explained.
Kelly has also talked about the things he’s done for love in an interview with Jimmy Falon on The Tonight Show.
And honestly, it’s a little crazy.
After winning a beer pong match one night, Kelly went home with Fox, and did something that he tried to play off…
“I went home and Travis got me this Knife that had an engravement from the new album on it, and I was like ‘check this out this is sick’ and I threw it up and it came and stuck in my hand,” he said.
“The next morning as soon as she left I was like ‘yo I need stitches real quick, I’ve got a bruised coccyx and a knife in my hand,” he comically told Falon.
This was at the time he’d only just started dating Fox, too.
But, as crazy as Kelly’s attempts to impress Fox may be, it seems that they have paid off as…
Kelly and Fox then announced their engagement.
Kelly proposed to Fox on January 11 at the Spa Botánico at the Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico, the Daily Mail reports.
Fox shared the exciting news on Instagram with a video of the special moment when Kelly got down on one knee.
Alongside the video, she shared a lengthy caption revealing details about their relationship.
Fox wrote: “In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic.”
“We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.”
“Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him,” she continued.
“And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes… and then we drank each other’s blood.”
Kelly also took to Instagram to share the news.
Sharing a picture of Fox’s engagement ring, Kelly revealed to fans that he designed it himself with “two halves of the same soul.”
He began his caption by writing: “‘Yes, in this life and every life.'”
“Beneath the same branches we fell in love under, I brought her back to ask her to marry me.”
Kelly then wrote that he knows the tradition is to have one ring, however, he designed the ring himself, with help from Stephen Webster, to be two.
His reason for the 2 rings is because they are “two halves of the same soul.”
One ring has an emerald stone, which is Fox’s birthstone, and the other ring has a diamond, which is Kelly’s birthstone.
Each of the stones is “set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.”
It’s clear to see the couple are very loved up.
But some feel as though the couple are a little too intense?
Megan Fox opened up to Glamour UK and shared some pretty strange rituals she and Kelly get up to…
One of the most controversial is that they often drink each other’s blood.
“Yeah. So, I guess to drink each other’s blood might mislead people or people are imagining us with goblets and we’re like Game of Thrones, drinking each other’s blood,” she admitted.
Adding: “It’s just a few drops, but yes, we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only.”
Fox then discussed the differences between herself and Kelly, calling him “haphazard and hectic.”
“I’m much more controlled. I read tarot cards and I’m into astrology and I’m doing all these metaphysical practices and meditations. And I do rituals on new moons and full moons, and all these things.”
She continued: “And so, when I do it, it’s a passage or it is used for a reason. And it is controlled where it’s like, ‘Let’s shed a few drops of blood and each drink it.’
“He’s much more haphazard and hectic and chaotic, where he’s willing to just cut his chest open with broken glass and be like, ‘Take my soul.'”
Yep, not what people are used to hearing.
But, that’s not all people are shocked by…
Fox also opened up about their first date, and the strange questions she asked him…
Speaking to E! News she admitted: “If you know me and I know you, it’s impossible for me to not know almost everything about you.”
Explaining further, she said she asked MGK: “‘Were you breastfed by your mother?'”
She later said that she thought it was a “great question,” adding that “it has a lot to do with your psychology and your temperament. So I ask things like that.”
When it comes to MGK, she clearly knows everything possible about the star…
So much so, even he is surprised by her knowledge, addressing it in a GQ interview, saying: “If you were my Jeopardy! partner you would honestly win every single category,” he shared. “You are an almanac, encyclopedia, and dictionary all in one.”

But rumors began circulating in August that the couple was reportedly heading towards a breakup…
As Fox has been posting photos of herself online without her boyfriend.
According to TMZ, the actress didn’t show up to his hometown show in Cleveland for his concert.
Adding more fuel to the rumors.
However, sources close to the couple told the media outlet that “they’re doing just fine — no big issues. They obviously can’t be together 24/7 — both of them work and have kids, but we’re told they’re solid.”
Well, that has certainly put the rumors to bed!
It’s clear they’re a very intense couple, so one bizarre display of affection by Fox didn’t come as a surprise…
The pair will always respond to one another on social media, and Fox hit the comment section of MGK’s latest Instagram post to show some love…
At least we think she did.
MGK posted a photo of himself at the Time100 Next Gala, and Fox was straight on it.
“Never has anyone with better bone structure walked this earth. Exquisitely, devastatingly handsome. And six foot five? Kill me or get me pregnant. Those are the only options,” Fox said.
Understandably, her comment got a lot of replies from fans, one said: “Omg the babies you would have! Gorgeous gorgeous lucky babes. Fingers crossed.”
“Girl bye with that you are so dark-sided,” another commented.

The pair stirred up the internet even more with their Halloween costumes.
Taking to Instagram, Fox posted a series of photos of her and MGK dressed as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, with the caption: “But are these even costumes.”
However, their Halloween ‘tribute’ didn’t exactly go down as well as they’d hoped.
Fox wore a blonde wig and latex dress, while MGK had fake sleeve tattoos and donned dark locks for the outfit.
Many people took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the increasing number of people dressing up as the pair…
“The amount of people dressing up as Pam and Tommy? Aka Pam and her abuser? it’s not a cute couple look, just shows y’all don’t give a s*** about victims of abuse,” one wrote.
Others blamed the Disney+ series Pam & Tommy for bringing their relationship back into the forefront.
Lily James and Sebastian Stan played the duo in the series, but Fox and MGK have faced backlash online for their decision to dress up as the couple.
Fans shared their outrage at the couple’s “insensitive” get-up in the comment section of her Instagram post.
“This is so dumb and insensitive,” one fan wrote.
Another added: “Tommy hit on Pamela, that’s not cool!!! stop with that.”
“Tomy Lee abused Pamela Anderson… y’all are sick,” a third commented.
Another called them the “Wish version” of Pam and Tommy.
It’s clear their costumes didn’t go down well with fans.
Which is understandable, as you will probably already be aware that Tommy was reportedly abusive to Pam…
He even spent 6 months in prison for felony spousal battery after their relationship broke down due to their s*x tape being leaked.

However, the backlash didn’t stop there for the couple.
A day after, they came under fire for another costume that has left Christians furious…
“Repent. Jesus Christ died for what you are doing right now,” one user wrote.
“You have children. Where is the example? The respect? Christianity is not a costume. It’s not a religion. It’s a relationship with God.”
A second added: “What happened to cultural appropriation? Why is it wrong to dress up as an [native American] but okay to mock the Catholic faith? It’s absolutely abhorrent and offensive and I’m so sick of the double standard!”
While a third commented: “Why is it that all you celebs mock Christianity? What’s the agenda? And why do yall hate God so much? I guess the devil is real.”
The pair posted photos of their costumes to social media, with MGK dressed as a Catholic priest…
While Fox wore fishnets, a collar, a dog lead, and black, wet-look lingerie.
Fox captioned the post: “On Sundays we take communion.”
Along with 2 emojis — one pair of prayer hands and one set of rosary beads.

Since then, MGK has opened up about the lows of being famous.
And even compared his experience with being famous to his Taurus movie character, Cole.
MGK said that although the movie depicts this idea of fame’s ugly side, his character showcased someone with Peter Pan syndrome who has a “Wendy” type character.
He even went on and said Fox is his real life “Wendy.”
“What I want to be is a great friend and a great father and a great man to my lady and still be able to find some way where I can have this dream.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he said that being famous does have a good side, but a bad side as well…
Something he didn’t always grasp as a child.
“When I was a kid and I was watching them, I was like, ‘Go f**k yourself. I’m broke and I have no life and I want what you have. And I would do whatever it takes to have what you have. And your problems, I would do whatever to have that.
“And to an extent, that kid is right, because this life is beautiful—the highs are the highest highs. But I will not front that—the lows are the lowest lows,” he said.
MGK also explained that having that celebrity status as an artist is like having a drug addiction, as it’s all about constantly chasing the high of approval and success.
“I can’t explain what it is like every day when you wake up, there’s screams for you. And then I’ve lived those years when the screams stopped. And you’re like, ‘Nah, I need my drug.’
“And then you’ve lost it and you feel like, ‘Oh, my God, will I never hear those screams again?’ And then the screams come back and then now what am I doing? Scared like a motherf**ker that I won’t hear those screams again one day when I wake up,” he added.
But that’s not all, he also gave a dark description of what he thinks would be left when fame is no longer…
“You can’t get that drug anymore, and it really is over because you’re old and you’re not hot to people anymore and there’s the next person who’s coming up with their s**t.
“What do you do? Probably want to blow your f**king brains out because there’s no way to achieve that again,” MGK said.
What do you think about his comments?
