Machine Gun Kelly Had a Megan Fox Poster Hanging in His High School Bedroom

MGK says he lived out his teenage “dream” at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards in May, but not just because he took home awards for top rock artist and top rock album with his Billboard 200-topping LP Tickets to My Downfall. It’s because of who he had on his arm. “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 Lowery shortly after the awards show. “It has nothing to do with the award. 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...

The glitz, the glamour, the hair is so crazy, the outfits and the wings. We are going to be like creatures,” Edwards says in the video before thinking about how the glitz and glam might weigh on her throughout the shoot. “It’s just the start. We haven’t started filming yet. So ...

MK Unveils Flappy Bird-Style Web Game Based on New Song “Chemical”

MK‘s recent dance-pop single “Chemical” is the focal point of a new online game, Chemical Chase. The song’s bubbly harmonies found an unlikely mouthpiece in the official music video, which features a rugged, anthropomorphic Boxer singing along to every word and ear-flapping to the beat. The surreal face of the track has now made his reprise in Chemical Chase, a game in which players must strive to navigate the dog through a neon-washed cityscape. The game play is extremely similar to Flappy Bird, which many will recall was a game that suddenly vanished from the App Store and Google Play store near the height of its release in 2014. At the time, the game’s creator Dong Nguyen said he felt uneasy with his observations as to how addictive the game had become...
