Who was your celebrity crush in high school? I’ll go first: Aragorn and Legolas — sue me!! — which would have actually been middle school, but whatever. The crush endures, for me and Machine Gun Kelly both. Only difference is, MGK gets to date his celeb crush. Yes, this man has loved partner and “twin flame” Megan Fox since his teendom, a new GQ profile reveals.

According to the journalist and classmate to MGK when MGK was Colson Baker, Wesley Lowery, this man “was the teenager who got the Decepticons logo from Transformers tattooed on his arm and hung a poster of Megan Fox in his bedroom” — her GQ poster, in fact. Truly “some full-circle shit,” as the singer put it.

What’s more, “at least one classmate recalls him vowing he’d marry her one day.” And indeed, the sources were saying this spring that these two “plan to get engaged and married” because “they are very much in love and have a strong and intense relationship.” An understatement, considering that Fox views the couple as “two halves of the same soul” and that he wears her blood around his neck and that they have barfed together in hell (a bonding experience). They are very full-on with the PDA, this pair, and frankly, good for them. If I were able to make out with Legolas on the red carpet in full view of the cameras, I absolutely would. I don’t know about a UFC date with the horniest couple in Hollywood, however. That might be a bridge too far.

Good for Machine Gun Kelly, Dating His High-School Crush
