Machine Gun Kelly Talks Dolce & Gabbana and Disabling Social Media With Megan Fox
Your last record was a huge success, but you also managed to become an actor and a model. When you think of yourself today, is it always a musician first?
Yes my guy. It could be encapsulated with “artist”. Also a bit of a crap starter, if we’re being honest.
It seems like everything – movies, music, fashion – is moving towards a more hybrid idea of entertainment, in general. You made a movie for your last album, and today you played some songs on a podium.
Yes, fashion and music have always gone hand in hand. I like when it’s authentic, and I hate when it’s fake, when it’s… stylish. I’ve been guilty of getting looks where I thought, “I would never wear that.” Emphasis on the “I”. Other people told me “you should wear this” and, you know, I did. But it’s necessary to develop your style, you have to figure out what you don’t like before you know what you’re doing.
What about fashion in general these days, what excites you?
Personally, I love what’s happening with fashion today, because it’s actually the opposite of something fake, people pushing themselves to look a certain way. I think a lot of people do it just to really express themselves. There’s so much personality, so much character in how people look, in their non-traditional hair colors, hairstyles, nails and tattoos. But you know you just QG, What do you think about it?
I completely agree with you.
I attended my first fashion show maybe eleven years ago, I attended a fashion show for the first time eight years ago. Just like with music, I’m very hesitant about people starting out and it’s their first year in music and they’re in the front row at the fashion show, dressed by the designers. It’s just like, are you a flash in the pan or are you for real? I never had a campaign, you know, before 2017, and I had been running for years before that. I studied a lot, in fashion. I have always been a student. I’ve probably been to a hundred fashion shows, soaking it all up. And not always in the front row!
