Megan Fox: Machine Gun Kelly was ‘like meeting your own soul’s reflection’


I’m genuinely happy for Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. They got together in 2020 and their love blossomed during the pandemic. They fell in love at the “right time” for both – she was ending her marriage to Brian Austin Green, and MGK was single and ready for love. They say that they’re soulmates, and MGK has brought out something in Megan we’ve never seen before, a comfort in herself, happiness and contentment. All that being said, they’re soooo over-the-top. I love that for them, and I support that, but it’s just kind of funny to me. Most people are happy for them but they’re, like, “no you don’t get it, our love is SO EDGY SO DARK SO HARDCORE” and we’re like “aw, that’s super-cute.” That’s what this entire British GQ cover story amounts to: Megan and MGK reveling in how they’re total edgelords and their love is so dark and profound and yet… the whole thing is just kind of ‘90s goth-vampire vibez and that’s so sweet. You can read the full piece here. Some highlights:

They actually met for the first time circa 2018: ‘I don’t remember your face… And I definitely would have remembered his face,’ Megan Fox says. ‘I just remember this tall, blond, ghostly creature and I looked up and I was like, “You smell like weed.” He looked down at me and he was like, “I am weed.” Then, I swear to God, he disappeared like a ninja in a smoke bomb.’

Fox has a theory: ‘I think we weren’t allowed to see each other yet. We weren’t supposed to run into each other that night, so our souls, our spirit guides, were luring us away from each other, because you literally had no face, like that thing from Spirited Away. It is hard to see his face in general, but really he had no face that night.’

MGK on their first kiss: ‘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.’

She wasn’t looking for love when they met in 2020: ‘[I was] definitely open [to] love, but I did not anticipate walking right into my soulmate like that. I was obviously over the way I had been living, and those paths lined up, those doors opened. It was [as if] all the obstacles that had kept us apart all those years [had been removed] and we were able to finally intersect.’

Fox on her persona: ‘You know, famously, like, I’m an unusual person. And I had buried a lot of that because it didn’t have a place to live. That’s something that, meeting him, it’s like meeting your own soul’s reflection. I recognise so much of myself in him, and vice versa, and that locked-up part of me that I had put away. I’d always felt like there was that thing missing, that I’d given up on, that you’re always seeking. But then you meet the person that completes that for you and you’re like, “Oh, this is what my heart was searching for. That’s what that beacon was this whole time.”’

Again, they’re very much in love and they complete each other in a lovely way. He seems kind of dumb, but I’ll give MGK some credit: he’s smart enough to go all-in with his dream girl, and he’s smart enough to treat Megan like gold. I doubt any man has ever treated her this way or respected her this way. Anyway, I love them because they do remind me of those dark edgelord couples of the ‘90s. There’s such a nostalgic vibe with them, right?

    I’m reading this in bed, next to my sleeping husband, and I’m having to stifle a giggle so I don’t wake him up. They are ridiculous and their “darkness” is about as edgy as a Talbot’s catalogue, but I agree, it’s cute.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    I stan this couple – its obvs there is a LOT of chemistry there, u go get it on with him girl as after BAG you deserve it. He seems like a nice, sweet guy.

    All the best to them.

  3. Sandy says:

    They are like 17 year olds in their first relationship. All in, it’s forever, never love anyone again ever etc etc. I kind of like it (I remember I was like that once), but I am also amused as I do know they aren’t 17 and usually, all things must end. I do have to say that these pictures are very well done – they both look amazing.
    I hope for them it works out. If not, I know she will be looking back at these comments and be dying of embarrassment inside (all too familiar to me 😂😂)

    • florencia says:

      THIS! They act like teens/young adults in first love, it’s a little embarrassing at their age from my perspective, but when you’re in your feelings this hard (been there girl!) nothing else matters. Maybe they’ll win the lotto and their love will last (rooting for you crazy no longer kids!) but this sure feels like a fast flames flame out fast kinda situation (as Lainey Lui would say)!

  4. Alissa says:

    it just seems the opposite of sexy to me haha. and they both come across very dumb. but they seem very happy and very into each other.

    I would be so mortified if these two were my parents though haha.

  5. Pilar says:

    He’s highly problematic. The way he talks about black women is gross and racist. Not sure why people are intent on acting like he’s a knight in shining armour just because her ex was controlling.

    • StL Nikki says:

      Thank you for bringing this up! Seems like nobody on here knows about the vile things he said about black women AND underage girls. He makes my skin crawl.

    • CidyKitty(CidySmiley) says:

      Also his history of fatphobia.

    • Tessa says:

      I don’t even know who he is. Is he a musician? Model? Influencer? I know I can google it, but my point is – I definitely don’t know what he said. I’d guess I’m not the only one.

      • Mcmmom says:

        Ok, so I also had no idea what he had said – I do know he’s a singer because his song was all over the radio this summer – so I googled him. Yuck.

      • NotSoSocialB says:

        I think I remember him being the musical guest once on SNL. Didn’t make much of an impression, apparently, so I won’t waste time googling.😂

    • Jules says:

      He sounds super controlling. And no one person can “complete you”, most people realize this after they grow out of their teens and stop watching Hollywood rom-coms.

    • BugsMalone says:

      THANK YOU, PILAR! I have huge issues with MGK and people just dance over the horrendous things he has said like it never happened

  7. RoyalBlue says:

    They look like they could play 2 vampires in a movie!

  8. Neners says:

    Maybe an unpopular opinion but I’m just glad that Megan is happy.

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      Megan deserves some happiness. BAG was very controlling, and she rarely looked happy during their many years together. They both look beautiful…look at those cheekbones!

  9. Zen says:

    I really like to look at him. He is beautiful like Timothee Chalamat is beautiful. All sharp cheekbones and fine eyes. She is beautiful too but not in the delicate, fragile way he is.

  10. Myra says:

    I feel like they’re putting on a show and yes…I am entertained!

  11. WithTheAmerican says:

    He looks like her after she got her plastic tweaks. And I say that with great affection for her.

  12. Sakura says:

    Ugh….these two. If they’re happy, kudos to them. They want everyone to think their love is the greatest, deepest, edgiest love there ever was, that no one could possibly understand their love. LOL… they sound like two teens in love for the very first time, and that IS cute (still cringe, tho). Also though- MGK wasn’t single when he met Megan. He was dating Summer Ray. Summer said on a podcast that MGK wouldn’t let her come to his “Bloody Valentine” video shoot. She found out later it was because Megan was playing his love interest in the video. MGK is a total D-bag, and that’s right up Megan’s alley, I guess.

  13. Bobbie says:

    She likes boyish-looking men. Brian Austen Green looked really boyish when they were first together. She doesn’t like them dude dudes, that’s for sure. The kind of guys who give off the vibe they can HANDLE a woman. 🙂

    • Cacec04 says:

      I don’t like the guy, but there’s plenty to criticize about him other than the toxic masculinity trope of he doesn’t look like a “REAL man”

  14. Karisma says:

    He cheated on his girlfriend with Megan, he has a history of saying racist and vile things about black women and defended his right to lust after underage girls. Can’t stand him and Megan lost all her appeal being such a try hard

  15. Coco says:

    So this guy is a racist, fat phobic and sexualizes underage girls and was in a relationship when he got with Megan, but it’s ok because she not with MAG and is happy?

    If MGK A reflection of hers soul, then it would also mean that she is a racist, fat phobic, it’s OK with the sexualization of underage girls and a cheater .

    Between some of these comments and the comment in all of these Paris Hilton post people are just telling on themselves.

  16. Elo says:

    Eww- he’s just so lame.
    I feel like she can do better but she just likes losers. His music is really really bad and he’s gross.

  17. Case says:

    I really, really like this couple. Some of their quotes sound ridiculous in print but when I’ve seen them on camera together, they clearly have a sense of humor and just seem very happy together.

  18. Jules says:

    lmao, wtf?
    “our spirit guides, were luring us away from each other, because you literally had no face, like that thing from Spirited Away. It is hard to see his face in general, but really he had no face that night.’ “

  19. Lunasf17 says:

    I thought they kind of fun (in an annoying way, try hard way) but I didn’t realize how problematic he was. Now he seems grosser. I think they will burn hot and fast and end in a glorious bang. That’s my prediction.

  20. Linda says:

    I give it 5 years, tops. They are in lust, not in love. They sound like everyone I’ve ever met in the throes of a new relationship.

  21. Barbie1 says:

    If I have to see his tongue one more time….I’m sure she will regret her quotes about him when they crash and burn. I didn’t know about his nasty comments. He is not a keeper. She has awful taste. The pictures are pretty though.

  22. K says:

    Yeah unless Travis Barker is standing next to him. Good luck with that one Megan. That would rattle her brain box.

  23. Ann says:

    Is he trying to channel Edgar Winter in that photo?

  24. AmelieOriginal says:

    I dunno why but they kind of remind me of Princess Martha Louise of Norway and that shaman guy she’s been dating. Martha Louise also talked about meeting her twin flame and I know she’s super into spiritual energy/supernatural/kind of woowoo stuff. They were both very in your face at the beginning of their relationship, they don’t get as much attention so I dunno how they are doing now. But I feel like MGK and Megan would get along with them. The way Megan talks about the universe aligning for them to meet and all that stuff, she and Martha Louise would be besties.

  25. Turtledove says:

    omg. Just googled to see what he said about black women and young girls. Super, super gross.

  26. april says:

    They’re too over the top with each other. I’m not seeing this lasting.

  27. Me says:

    I am weed, are we supposed to take anything seriously these two say? they must be smoking the same really strong weed as zayn.

  28. Heat says:

    I find them exhausting. I’m happy that Megan has found someone, but all of the pontificating about their love makes me feel sort of embarrassed for future-them. There’s just something kind of…I don’t know…gross about it.
    Plus, he’s a racist douche bag.
