Megan Fox and her fiancé Machine Gun Kelly attended the premiere of the rapper’s new Hulu documentary, Machine Gun Kelly’s Life in Pink, Monday night in New York City wearing — you guessed it — head-to-toe pink.
Channeling the Barbiecore aesthetic, Fox opted for rose-tinted blonde tresses courtesy of hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos. She teamed her light locks with a dusty rose Nensi Dojaka mini dress featuring a strappy bodice with pink sandals. Kelly styled his hot pink locks combed back and wore a spiky Chet Lo pink and blue Tidal shirt, with white chain and pearl-linked trousers, and white sneakers. Kelly accessorized his ensemble with pink gemstone earrings, a string of pearls, stacked pearl bracelets, and a varied assortment of rings.
Hot off the heels of the premieres of the couple’s films Good Mourning and Taurus shortly thereafter, Machine Gun Kelly’s Life in Pink features Kelly’s life over the past two years, pulling back the curtain on the musician’s meteoric rise to fame and the struggles that come with it.
Detailing the “Bloody Valentine” singer’s childhood, his complicated relationship with his father, and a near-death experience with his daughter Casie, Kelly reveals an especially dark moment that took place in the summer of 2020, resulting in a suicide attempt.
In a “really, really, really dark” place following the death of his father, Kelly recalls putting a loaded gun in his mouth with now-fiancé Fox on the phone. Feeling as though he “snapped,” Kelly said, “Megan went to Bulgaria to shoot a movie and I started getting this really wild paranoia. Like, I kept getting paranoid that someone was gonna come and kill me.”
“I called Megan,” he said. “I was like, ‘You aren’t here for me.’ I’m in my room and I’m, like, freaking out on her. Dude, I put the shotgun in my mouth. And I’m yelling on the phone and like the barrel is in my mouth. And I go to cock the shotgun and the bullet, as it comes back up, the shell just gets jammed. Megan’s like dead silent.”
A moment that put things in perspective for Kelly, The Dirt actor decided it was time to get clean. The rocker greatly credits Fox and his 12-year-old daughter for inspiring him to make the change.
“’I want to like, see you as my father’ and ‘I want to see you as my husband-to-be’ and I was like, I need to kick the drugs for real this time,” he said. Kelly continued, saying Fox “became the sun” to him, noting her positive influence on his life.
“That’s what helps me write those songs. ‘Cause it’s just like every fairytale that they never told you in school…the passion between us is just otherworldly,” he said.
