We don’t know everything that’s been going on in Machine Gun Kelly’s life, but some of the bits and pieces we do know don’t seem like he’s been able to “put his temper back.”
MGK tried to make the leap from music to film, and he had a really fun stunt cameo donkey forever, but roles that didn’t require getting hit in the face with a giant fiberglass hand weren’t that exciting. She co-wrote and co-directed the comedy film Good morningwhich has grossed a total of $21,348 to date and has appeared on many critics’ lists of the 10 worst movies of 2022. It seemed to be gaining momentum with a starring role opposite Kevin Bacon in the crime drama One Way. That one fared slightly better critically, but financially it was raised just north of $30,000 because it didn’t have a wide theatrical release, according to Box Office Mojo.
Then it appeared that he lost his girlfriend Megan Fox, a fact he made a lot of clear on Instagram when he posted “you can taste the dishonesty” and unfollowed MGK, only to follow his nemesis Eminem. Last week, the actress showed up at the Vanity Fair after the Oscar party without him or his ring. It also didn’t help that she’s been nearly absent from social media, deleting virtually all photos of her.
Put all the snide jokes and mean comments aside for a minute. He’s sick. Everyone knows what heartbreak feels like, even if we aren’t lucky enough to have been dumped by Megan Fox. It also didn’t help that she opened her aching heart to her fans at a recent concert at Rodeo Houston.
Some time ago, MGK shifted his music from rap to pop punk; that alone couldn’t be a bigger cry for help unless he started an emo band called “Cry For Help”. During his set, he reportedly told the crowd, “Guys, don’t you think I should just move to Texas? I could. My life is in shambles,” according to iHeartRadio.
Some people in the crowd backed up the quote on social media, noting that there was a hint of playfulness behind it. But it still feels like the kind of prank you play with your friends when you’re at your lowest point.
Machine Gun Kelly tonight at the Houston Rodeo: “Don’t you think I should just move to Texas? … I mean, I could do it. …(laughs)…my life is in chaos” Awwww. You are welcome here, MGK.

Sure, the food is fantastic, the beer comes out of the taps cheaply, and every major metropolis has more quality music than a Waffle House jukebox. It’s interesting that MGK thinks Texas might be his happy place. We hope you find it, wherever it is.
