AceShowbiz - Machine Gun Kelly has sent the internet into a frenzy with his recent social media post. On Saturday, May 21, the "Bloody Valentine" shocked his online devotees after posting a naked behind-the-scenes photo from his new movie "Good Mourning".
The 32-year-old shared the said snap on his Instagram account. In the image, he was seen posing in his bathroom while covering up his private area with just a towel. The emcee also got his tattoos covered up with makeup.
In the accompaniment of the post, MGK said, "I did 5 whole sit-ups (and 200 blunts) to prep for my role in Good Mourning." The post, which also included photos of MGK and Mod Sun, has since garnered more than 800,000 likes.
Fans were quick to offer their two cents upon seeing the racy picture. "this first picture is the best thing I've ever seen," one person commented. Another added, "So hairless and smooothe. Like a punk rock Ken doll."
Others, meanwhile, were seemingly unimpressed by the photo. "COLSONNNN YOU CANT JUST POP UP BARLEY CLOTHED ON MY PHONE LIKE THIS! IM IN PUBLIC," one fan argued, with another suggesting, "i think it's time to delete ur account." A different user chimed in, "maybe u need a break from social media."
In "Good Mourning", MGK stars as London Clash, "a movie star who must choose between chasing his one true love or a once-in-a-lifetime movie role." His fiancee Megan Fox, meanwhile, plays his love interest in the flick.
When speaking about how he ended up writing the film, the "Bad Things" spitter told Extra earlier this month, "I wrote the movie for her because she was unknowingly the cause of the spiral. [Megan] sent me a text just like in the movie," he said. "[My character] spirals over a text that he doesn't really understand and he can't get a hold of her, and that was what was happening to me."
"I was, like, spiraling so hard. I needed somewhere else to go with it. I was like, 'I'm just gonna write a movie,' " MGK further recalled. Noting that he shared the script with Megan on her porch steps, he recounted, "She was like, 'This is what you were thinking the whole time?' "
