Well, this is pretty disgusting.
He made headlines this past week after the first proposing to Megan Fox and getting engaged (and then sharing the moment on their social media accounts for the world to see), but Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, also raised some eyebrows when he claimed that he had designed Fox’ engagement ring in such a way that ‘it would hurt if she tries to take it off’ – because, in his words, ‘love is pain’ apparently.
However, while that is disturbing on so many levels on its own, it seems the 31-year-old is no stranger to saying completely inappropriate things about women – and, in fact, children.
Kelly came under fire earlier this week after a Fuse interview in which he made some disturbing comments about Kendall Jenner back when she was just 17 resurfaced.
A TikTok user posted the clip from 2014 where Kelly, who was 23 at the time, discussed his infatuation with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star – who was underage at the time of the interview.

“Who was your first celebrity crush?” a Fuse journalist asked at the time, to which the rapper replied,
“I don’t care who my first celebrity crush was ’cause right now it’s Kendall Jenner,” Kelly reveals, before continuing:
“God damn I’ve said that so many motherf–king times, I hope that I’m snagging that,” he said with a smile, before adding, “Don’t let me move to L.A. Oof, I’m finding her.”
When the interviewer asked: “Counting down the days until she’s 18?” Kelly answered,
“I’m not waiting til she’s 18, I’ll go now. I’m 23, dog, I’m not like a creepy age you know. I’m 23, she’s 17, and she’s a celebrity, there [is] no limits right there.”
The rapper then listed musicians who have allegedly dated underage girls in the past, including Robert Plant and Axl Rose, to clearly justify his sick comments.
“I don’t care. Say what you want, man,” he continued. “If Kendall Jenner was in your bedroom naked and you’re 50, you’re going.”
Rest assured, it did not take long for other TikTok users to comment and point out just how disturbing Kelly’s comments were.
“Why the hell would you say all of this out loud,” one person wrote.
Another added: “My mouth dropped lower and lower the more I kept watching.”
Picking up on one of the rapper’s comments, in particular, one TikTok user said: “‘And she’s a celebrity’ like that makes her not a child??”
Another one noted: “It’s the fact that he’s done research to back his argument, this isn’t the first time someone told him it’s not ok.”
