More On: Machine Gun Kelly Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly Wear Pink To ‘Good Mourning’ Premiere Dodges Machine Gun Kelly PDA In Tense Red Carpet Video
Machine Gun Kelly says his new movie, “Good Mourning,” was inspired by what we thought was a breakup text from fiancée Megan Fox.
“I wrote the film for her because, without knowing it, she was the cause of the spiral. She texted me like in the movie,” the singer, who directs and stars in the comedy stoner, told Extra at the Los Angeles premiere this week.
“[My character] it spirals over text that he doesn’t really understand and can’t communicate with her, and that’s what was happening to me.”
MGK, 32, explained that he had “written so many songs” and used “all these other avenues” to deal with grief in the past, so he needed something different this time.
“It was, like, spiraling so hard. I needed another place to accompany him,” she recalled. “I was like, ‘I’m just going to write a movie.'”

“We were supposed to film for eight hours, it turned into like 16 hours because we couldn’t stop laughing,” he shared. “[Pete] I was improvising when I was at the editing station. I was like, ‘OK, we have to keep that, we have to keep that too.’ Everything she said was hilarious.”
During the interview, MGK was also asked if he and Fox, 35, would ever consider eloping like friends Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian. The two were married at One Love Chapel in Las Vegas last month, although the nuptials were not legally binding.
“I want to let, let the world see that as it comes,” MGK said of his own plans with Fox, sheepishly toying with any additional details.
