The nice thing about Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly is that we always know where they stand. They love love, and want to shout it from the rooftops, ok!
The couple – whose love story has sparked many a headline since they first met on the set of the film, Midnight in the Switchgrass, earlier this year – certainly have something special, just ask Megan Fox, who called their connection one of "mythic proportions". "[It's a] once in a lifetime thing."
"Loving him is like being in love with a tsunami or forest fire," Megan told Nylon. "The intensity of merging with him is just overwhelming, and the threat it poses is so powerful but so beautiful that you have no choice to surrender with reverence and with gratitude."
Fortunately for Megan, MGK appears to be very much on the same page. "Love is not what's being encouraged now," he said in the joint feature. "In fact, it's exactly the opposite: Everything now is isolation, dehumanization, separation. And fuck, dude, you have in your head that you're this rock star, with multiple women and all that… So finding someone that can take you out of the fast lane and make sure that you're safe, because at any minute you can crash—I love that it can evolve into that."
Megan Fox also asserted that she has "never" attempted to control MGK. "It's more that he looks to me to avoid his own self-destructive tendencies," she said. "And that's where I'm useful because on his own and left to his own devices I don't know how much interest he has in caring for himself."
Megan, who split with her husband and father of her three kids, Brian Austin Green, late last year, has previously called Machine Gun Kelly her "twin flame". (MGK meanwhile, has made mention of his love of Fox's.... feet.)
"Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time," she said during the couple's first joint interview on Lala Kent and Randall Emmett's podcast, Give Them Lala ... With Randall back in July. "So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away."
She continued: "I think it was the second day [of filming]. I asked him to come into my trailer for lunch, and I put him through all of this astrology stuff. I went deep right away. I knew before I even did his chart, I said to him, he has a Pisces moon. I could tell by his energy."
I don't know what a Pisces moon is but it sounds fun. All the best to Fox and Kelly. Long may they overshare.
