Megan Fox recently revealed that she wore her risque VMAs dress because she was told to by her boyfriend, Machine Gun Kelly…
Megan Fox and MGK are getting married!
But, honestly, we still have something else on our minds…
Megan Fox’s VMAs dress!
Wow, right? Well, Fox recently opened up about why she wore the dress, and it has turned heads…
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 shutdown,” 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 he 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 commically 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 have 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 that 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 birth stone, and the other ring has a diamond, which is Kelly’s birthstone.
Each of the stones are “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.”
However, although Kelly claimed to have designed the ring himself, some fans think he might have got the idea for it from elsewhere…
Some eagle-eyed fans have noticed that the ring Kelly designed is very similar to an influencers…
Some people believe that the ring Kelly designed is almost exactly the same as influencer, India Blue’s engagement ring.
Blue, who got engaged to her partner last year, received a ring that was very similar in both shape and color.
And it seems that even Blue has noticed the similarity of the rings as she took to her Instagram stories to comment on it.
Sharing a picture of her own ring to Instagram stories, Blue wrote: “The blueprint. RIP to her moment of originality.”
What do you think? Do you see the similarity?
Either way, they both have very beautiful rings!
Back to The Dress…
While on the red carpet at the VMAs, the couple spoke with ET, where Megan revealed that the near-naked dress was Kelly’s idea.
When asked how they decided on their outfits for the show, Megan pointed to her boyfriend and joked:
“He was like, ‘You’re gonna be naked tonight. I was like, ‘Whatever you say, daddy!’” Yikes
