Is Machine Gun Kelly Slowly Morphing Into Travis Barker?

The pop-punk collaborators can now boast both matching tattoos and matching bald heads.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker, and their girlfriends Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian (respectively), are pretty much the same couple. Mirror images of the other. Doppelgänger duplets.

And it looks like their similarities are only increasing by the day, what with Kourtney Kardashian looking increasingly like Megan Fox and now, Machine Gun Kelly shaving his head in what we assume is a tribute to Travis Barker. Have a look below.

And would you look at that! He’s also got a tattoo emblazoned on his bald head. Fascinating. Was it already there? Or is it new? We just don’t know. We may never know.

The reaction to MGK’s new look on social media generally seems to be one of dismay. “I hated your mop cut but I think I hate this more,” opined one Twitter user, plus my personal favourite: “I’m going to pretend you didn’t tweet this and go on with my night”. A particularly vocal group of bald cap conspiracists were also present for good measure.

To really bring home their twinning energy, MGK and Travis Barker showed off their matching “born with horns' tattoos on Instagram, to promote Machine Gun Kelly’s forthcoming album, called – you guessed it – Born With Horns.

They’re best friends, you guys. Happy for them.
