AceShowbiz - Actress Megan Fox almost backed out of wearing her risque black gown to the 2021 Billboard Music Awards after enjoying a chat with God during a psychedelic experience in Costa Rica.
The "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" star turned heads on the red carpet as she posed in a barely-there Thierry Mugler dress at the ceremony back in May, when she accompanied her boyfriend, rapper/actor Machine Gun Kelly to the high-profile event.
However, Fox initially didn't feel comfortable showing so much skin as the couple had just returned from Central America, where they had got high on powerful hallucinogen ayahuasca.
"My stylist was like, 'We want you to wear this' and I was like, 'I was just talking to God in the jungle, I'm not ready to wear that,' " she recalled to InStyle magazine.
Fox eventually relented, thanks to a little added courage from a hit of Peruvian tobacco, which they had brought back from their travels.
"(I thought), 'F**k it, I'll just have some Peruvian tobacco, I'll wear this thing,' " she shared.
Machine Gun Kelly decided to take the tobacco with them to the ceremony, where he proceeded to perform a type of cleansing ritual on his girlfriend for everyone to see.
"He gets out (of the car) wearing this basically shirtless Jim Morrison, wild-a** Balmain super rockstar, whatever the f**k he's wearing," she said.
"He takes out this giant-a** - it looks like a blunt, it's not, it's Peruvian tobacco - and he's smoking it and then he's blowing it all over me to cleanse me. People must've been like, 'These f**king people are psycho (sic).' "
It wasn't just the tobacco and Fox's sexy outfit which drew headlines - they also weren't afraid to make out for the cameras, even with Kelly painting his tongue black to match his outlandish wardrobe.
The series of events leading up to the awards show appeared to bring Kelly luck as he emerged a double winner, taking home prizes for Top Rock Artist and Top Rock Album for "Tickets to My Downfall".
