Machine Gun Kelly Had a Cooking Disaster Trying to Impress Megan Fox

MGK can be described as a “Baker”, but that is just the name.

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly attend the 2022 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 15, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada.


From hip-hop to pop-punk, acting and now home cooking, Machine Gun Kelly likes to switch it up. His projects don’t always succeed, but he admits that.

The American artist stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night (Dec. 7) for a glimpse at his recent wins and losses.

First, the wins. MGK won favorite rock artist for second year straight at the 2022 American Music Awards last month, following the March release of Mainstream Sellout, his second-straight Billboard 200 chart leader.

In the losses column, MGK, born Colson Baker, shared a tale of his efforts to cook for his fiancee Megan Fox, who has some very specific dietary requirements. Baker tried to make gluten-free, vegan cinnamon rolls from scratch and called Michael B. Jordan for help.

To make a long story short, Fox claimed the goodies were fine. Baker disagreed and tossed them too early, much to the dismay of everyone else. He is a Baker by name only.

Baker’s late-night stint was in support of his starring role in Taurus, Tim Sutton’s feature-length drama that he describes as “semi-autobiographical.” Acting opposite Fox, Baker plays Cole, a character traumatized by incidents from the past but “he’s a good soul who wants to make the right choices.”

Baker shared with Kimmel his fourth grade bully nickname, “coleslaw” in a spirit of sharing.

MGK recently received his first Grammy nomination, earning a best rock album nod for Mainstream Sellout, he released the title cut for Taurus, and appears in the colorful campaign for Fox’s UN/DN LAQR nail brand.

Below is the late-night interview.
