That’s it, shut it down, shut the internet down — because we doubt it can get any better than this. Okay, fine whatever, we’ve been known to dramatically exaggerate, but let’s be real, this Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox GQ Style spread is making all of our “darkest fairytale” dreams come true.
Yes, “darkest fairytale,” well “The darkest fairytale” to be exact, which is what Megan and MGK tattooed on each other in the backroom of a studio, while being interviewed for the mag’s cover story. The phrase, as Fox explained, “alludes back to one of the first text messages we ever sent each other.”
Kelly, whose government name is Colson Baker, shared a few shots from the spread on IG, which after seeing, we’re still having trouble breathing properly. So, fair warning and all, but not looking at them is, like, not an option.
Seriously tho, the shots are INSANE and we’re obsessed. Also, can we just talk about the caption and how Kim Kardashian’s “The People’s Kourt” Saturday Night Live skit pretty much nailed it? In the sketch, Pete Davidson impersonated his real-life bestie, while his fellow cast member Chloe Fineman portrayed Fox.
Speaking of... the very next day, Kelly shared his thoughts on Davidson's impersonation, saying, "i think it's time for me to come on the show as Pete," on Twitter alongside a clip from Davidson's sketch.
Okay, but back to why we’re here. The main topic of discussion throughout the GQ interview was centered around Megan and Colson’s whirlwind courtship. And the twin flames went all in, covering everything from “first meeting on set to their deepening spiritual connection, and how love has seared them together for life.”
The couple has been dating since 2020, after meeting on the set of Midnight In the Switchgrass. And while usually, the beginnings of a relationship start off light, for Meg and Kelly that wasn’t the case. For them, things were emotional and “intense” from the start. Kelly revealed, “she was just like, ‘How are you feeling?’ And I said, ‘I’m lost.’ She said, ‘Well, let’s find you.’ That was the first real conversation we had.” Dang, that’s deep.
And it was emotional intimacy, over the physical, that remained at the forefront throughout the beginning stages of their romance. As Kelly recalled, “Even our first kiss, she wouldn’t kiss me. We just put our lips right in front of each other and breathed each other’s breath and then she just left.” Wait… what?!
Anyway, as they explained — initial text conversations turned into hours-long phone calls, then came their first date, and well the rest is tabloid history. For the full breakdown of their romance check out their full interview here.
In other MGK news, Pop Punk’s newest bad boy has teased some details about upcoming album Born With Horns, revealing that it’s “more guitar-heavy” and lyrically “deeper.”
“I never like to do anything the same,” Kelly told Sunday Today With Willie Geist. “Every album is a juxtaposition of the last album. So I went and studied ‘Tickets’, and I heard the bright sound that I had, and for this album I just turned the lights off.”
Kellz continued, “I’m not scared anymore, there’s nothing holding me back from being my true self – and my true self can’t be silenced, can’t be restrained. It’s a force, it’s like a hurricane. Can’t stop that, it just goes until it feels like stopping, and I don’t feel like stopping anytime soon.”
