As Machine Gun Kelly’s first words to girlfriend Megan Fox continue their ascent among memes, fellow artists such as Miley Cyrus are getting in on the fun.
On Sunday (Oct. 17), the singer and former Disney star who recently covered Metallica spoofed MGK’s now immortal words in a set of photos online.
The images underscore how the headline-making relationship between the rapper-turned rocker Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, and Transformers actress Fox, continues to transfix the entertainment world, other celebrities included.
“I AM WEED,” Cyrus captioned two studio shots of her in a ruffled green dress and silver platform heels, a green heart emoji rounding out the Twitter post, as Billboard pointed out.
Indeed, according to a recent video with the pair, that phrase is what Kelly said to Fox when the two initially met, after the actress first observed that he smelled like marijuana.
MGK responded to Cyrus’ tweet, saying, “see, i’m not the only one.” Cyrus hit back, “We may actually be the same person. Have we ever been seen at the same place @ the same time? & yes that means Megan Fox is my gf too.”
Much like Kelly, Cyrus also started in another genre before making the switch to rock. Cyrus’ recent pics are part of a rebrand of her internet presence — a photo of her in the same dress is her current Twitter banner, and she’s shared similarly styled shots on the site. She released rock album Plastic Hearts in 2020, and a new one is expected soon.
Lest one think MGK and Fox weren’t always this trippy, recall the actress said in July that she psychologically “went to hell” during an ayahuasca-fueled drug trip with the singer.
Machine Gun Kelly will soon drop a new album called Born With Horns, another collaboration with blink-182 drummer Travis Barker after the successful Tickets to My Downfall. Kelly, Fox, Barker and several in their periphery recently got lampooned on SNL.
For the last month, Kelly’s drawn the ire of Slipknot fans after engaging in a spat with the metal band’s Corey Taylor. The outcome has found MGK facing polarized audiences at his recent shows.
