During his time on The Drew Barrymore Show, Machine Gun Kelly opened up about his mental health. He told Barrymore that he’s new to being vulnerable and crediting his partner, Megan Fox, for it.
“I don’t want to come off like I’m cold or shy, but I’m just a little insular, and I’m just having an odd day,” Kelly said.
Drew Barrymore reminded Kelly that her show was created in a time where guests get to keep it really real and be honest.
He responded by saying he’s “new to being vulnerable outside of songs.”
“I see a lot of pictures of me and there’s smiles on them and it’s just weird though because I didn’t feel good at all that day,” he says. “I kind of am sick of smiling on days when I don’t feel like smiling, and I feel this odd pressure because I don’t want my fans to think that I’m taking something for granted.”
“A lot of what I do is for other people, and I haven’t given myself the time to just accept that it’s OK to not be OK.”
He unveiled that Fox has been helping him to conquer his demons.
