Pete Davidson, Travis Barker and Machine Gun Kelly. What do they have in common besides having tattoos and being friends? I could also say they’re all musicians, but Pete Davidson is a sketch comedy “rapper.” The closest to serious music was when he was engaged to Ariana Grande, and she wrote a song about him, quoting Pete Davidson. They all date extremely gorgeous women.
I guess referring to Kim and Kourtney Kardashian as well as Megan Fox as gorgeous is subjective. But there’s no denying how successful they have been in their careers. I may recognize all of these aforementioned people as celebrities, but I still wonder what these gorgeous, successful women see in these emo boys.
When Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly first dated around May 2020, after Fox’s divorce was finalized, I assumed it was some sort of social media ploy. MGK was releasing a new album, and she starred in the music video for Bloody Valentine, so they got a lot of media attention. I’ve been a fan of MGK for a relatively short time, considering he only really started making good music when he changed genres.
They made a lot of sense to me, like quite opposite in looks but the same weird energy. But then Kourtney Kardashian went public with Blink-182’s Travis Barker in December 2020. It seemed too much of a coincidence for me not to assume it wasn’t meant to cause a media circus. They would have been friends for so long, and it grew into something more over the years. If you know anything about Travis Barker, like MGK, he has the majority of his body covered in tattoos. MGK recently switched to emo-ish pop-punk, but Barker has been around since the early 2000s. Thought two emo boy-hot girl pairings were enough? Pity. I present to you Pete Davidson (of SNL fame) and Kim Kardashian. They reportedly started dating around December 2021, but you can see their interaction starting after Kim hosted SNL in October 2021. The media has to be involved in this one, right?
I’m not sure you follow the Kardashians, or more specifically, Kim and Kanye’s situation, but it’s almost too good not to address. I’ll give my opinion on all of this in the next few weeks, but for now, let’s stick to Pete Davidson.
Since their relationship just blossomed, there’s not much I can say. I find this very fortuitous, and I’m interested to see where it leads. With Travis and Kourtney engaged, alone with Megan and MGK, the obvious next step would be for Pete and Kim to do the same. Betting on another failed engagement for Pete? What about the likelihood of some sort of fight between Kanye and his possible husband number? Stay tuned. I know I will.
