Machine Gun Kelly says falling in love with Megan Fox changed his life and made him ‘a better person’
When he met actress Megan Fox on the set of an indie movie in Puerto Rico in March, he fell head over heels for her.
And in an interview with NME published last week, Machine Gun Kelly described how the romance altered everything.
The recording artist, 30, shared that when he began work on his hit album Tickets To My Downfall, he was ‘coked out of my mind in a drunken stupor.’
‘Tickets is essentially my diary because I did fall in love during the making of this record, and I did become a better person,’ he told NME.

MGK went on: ‘There was probably a crossroads in the middle of making this album where the title would have lived up to the reality. I think the universe caught on to me wanting to make a change.’
He explained: ‘It was like: ‘Maybe we won’t make this a reality; maybe we’ll make this ironic.’ Instead of the downfall, go ahead and have the biggest rise of your f*****g life.’
The rapper reinvented himself with the pop punk album made with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and earned him his first number one on the Billboard 200 after its September 25 release.

MGK – real name Colson Baker – and Transformers star Fox went public with their relationship in May.
The actress, 34, had split from her husband of 10-years, Brian Austin Green, 47, with whom she shares three sons – Noah, eight, Bodhi, six, and Journey, four.
Earlier this month, People reported that Fox had introduced her new love to her children.
‘He recently met her kids for the first time. Megan thought it was a natural step, since they are getting more serious,’ a source told the outlet.
‘They are in a committed relationship and it’s not just a fling. They are planning a future together,’ the source added.
