Machine Gun Kelly had a poster of girlfriend Megan Fox hanging on his bedroom wall when he was a teenager and reportedly vowed to marry the superstar, years before striking up a romance with her.
Not only did Kelly have a crush on the actress, but he even had the Transformers Deceptions logo tattooed onto his arm when he was a teen, it is revealed in a wide-ranging GQ profile done by a reporter who went to high school with him.
As fate would have it, the poster Kelly, 31, had of Megan, 35, on his wall was her iconic 2008 GQ shoot.

Speaking with reporter Wesley Lowery over FaceTime and with Megan in vicinity, he asked her from across the house, ‘It was the GQ poster, right?’
‘It was from her GQ shoot,’ he said. ‘So that’s some full-circle s**t.’
The rapper’s interest in the actress was apparently quite strong, with one classmate recalling Kelly had vowed to marry Megan.
Things sure have changed for MGK, who Wesley remembered as the ‘lanky white boy roaming the halls in bulky yellow headphones, carrying a CD player a dream.’

At the time the interview was conducted, Kelly had recently accepted the Top Rock Artist gong at the Billboard Music Awards. The rapper attended the show with his stunning girlfriend by his side.
Kelly called the experience a dream come true.
‘You know what the dream was? It was exactly what happened to me [this weekend], which was go to an awards show, shut down the carpet, go onstage, accept an award,’ he told the reporter.

‘It has nothing to do with the award,’ he added. ‘I saw a British GQ article that came out this morning that basically was like, “Despite the fact that BTS was there, The Weeknd was there, Drake was there, the talk of the show was [us].”
‘That overzealous, overconfident 15-year-old must have known that it was attainable, even though everyone else was like, “You’re out of your white-boy-rapping mind.” No one is sitting in math class thinking that [the next] Drake is sitting next to them.’
Kelly and Megan have been in a relationship since last year, after the actress split from her husband, Brian Austin Green.

In a recent interview with InStyle, the actress made it clear that she did not meet MGK before she filed for divorce from Green and the rocker had no part in their split.
Kelly gushed about Megan and their ‘real great love’ during the InStyle interview.
The musician said: ‘She’s like the earth. When it’s summer, it’s the hottest summer. When it’s winter, it’s the most amazing chill. In the fall and spring, it’s a beautiful transition.’
He then added: ‘She is unlike any person I have ever met in my life. I just want people to understand this is real – I don’t think people get the opportunity to believe in real great love, and that’s what we have together.”
