Machine Gun Kelly born Colson Baker in Texas. Machine Gun Kelly raised in the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights. Machine Gun Kelly began making music in his teens and made news in 2009. Delivering lyrics with the speed of a bullet train, Cleveland rapper experienced a meteoric rise in late 2011 when he transitioned from grinding out self-released mixtapes to working with major labels. From there, Machine Gun Kelly skyrocketed to superstar status, with each of his albums charting in the Top Ten.
Machine Gun Kelly described in detail to talk-show host Drew Barrymore the way sparks flew with Megan Fox during their first lunch date—and that he knew in his gut that they would.
How the famous twin flames were lit!
Machine Gun Kelly is sharing the sweet details about how he and girlfriend Megan Fox first connected. While appearing on a recent episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, the rapper (whose real name is Colson Baker) described how they met as co-stars on the film Midnight in the Switchgrass, directed by Randall Emmett in 2020.
"We were filming a movie and the only reason I took the movie is ‘cause they were like, ‘There's scenes with Megan Fox,' the 31-year-old admitted to host Drew Barrymore. "I was like, ‘I'll take the movie.'"
While filming, Kelly admitted that he hung around outside the actress' trailer waiting for something to happen. Fox eventually invited him into her trailer for lunch, and although the "Bloody Valentine" singer pretended to be surprised, he said he knew it was going to happen because his "gut is always right."
"I went in there and she said, ‘How do you feel?' and I said, ‘I'm lost,' and she said, ‘Let's find you,'" Kelly gushed as he clutched his heart and gasped in admiration. "It killed me; she was Cupid."
"You got hit by her arrow," Barrymore added.
The conversation took place as the tattooed musician gave the talk-show host a wild green manicure to promote his new nail polish brand, UN/DN LAQR.
Fox, 35, shared a similar story about that spark-filled lunch with Kelly when she appeared on the Give Them Lala…With Randall podcast, just weeks after she confirmed the romance last summer. The Transformers actress admitted to hosts Emmett and his then fiancée, Lala Kent, that during that meal she asked "900,000 questions" and "went deep right away."
"The second that I was in a room with him and said hello to him and looked into his eyes, I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame," said Fox, who had recently split from husband Brian Austin Green. "We're actually two halves of the same soul I think. I said that to him almost immediately. I felt it right away."
Soon after, it became clear to those around the pair that these two had something special.
"I knew there was a chemistry but I didn't know anything on a personal level," Emmett shared. "When I was watching you guys, it was very captivating. The chemistry that was going on was very magical."
Megan Fox And Machine Gun Kelly Kicked 2022 Off With Matching Sneakers And PDA
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly brought their intense 2021 romance into the new year with their first PDA paparazzi sighting. Photographers captured Kelly and Fox having an affectionate moment while leaving Travis Barker's sound studio in Calabasas, CA on Monday. Kelly and Fox both wrapped an arm around each other and wore matching black looks. Kelly was in a black hoodie and jeans while Fox wore a black coat and gray beanie. Both wore black and white sneakers.
Kelly spoke glowingly about Fox during his December appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show. When asked how Fox handles his darker moments and whether Fox ever tells him to “lighten up,” Kelly said, “Oh, no, she’s the most compassionate person ever, but I think like my dark is just so dark, she’s like, ‘Oh god.’ But no, she’s super compassionate. She’s the nicest person I’ve ever met and like, she loves me for me and all my crazy, so.”
He added that the only reason he took the film he met her on, Midnight in the Switchgrass, was to meet her.
“We were filming a movie, which ironically the only reason I took the movie was because they were like, ‘Your scene’s with Megan Fox,’ and I was like, ‘I'll take the movie,’” he recalled. “But I stayed outside the trailer, and my gut is always right and I'm grateful for it, because for some reason I knew she would invite me for lunch. And then, all of a sudden, someone came over and was like, ‘Megan wants to know if you want to have lunch in her trailer.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my god, I'm so surprised. Yeah, absolutely.’”
“And I went in there, she said, ‘How do you feel?’” Kelly continued. “And I said, ‘I’m lost.’ And she said, ‘Let's find you.’ And I was like...killed me. She was cupid.”
