Machine Gun Kelly Talks Hooking Up in the Back of a Police Car & Which Drug He'd Never Do Again

Machine Gun Kelly is on the cover of GQ Hype‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag…

On hooking up in the back of a police car: “There was one time I got pulled over – I don’t have a driver’s licence, but I was driving a friend’s car – and I had a gun. Obviously I told them there was a gun in the car. They put me and my friend, who was this girl I was speaking to at the time, in the cop car and we hooked up in the back.”

On his near death experience: “So on 11 May 2013 I was walking across the street, freshly landed in Manchester. I was going to see if anyone had some weed. I do the one mistake that every foreign guy does: crossing the street looking the wrong way. This double-decker bus hit me so hard. My face was the first thing to get hit. All I remember is waking up and everyone screaming. I get up, my jeans are ripped. Everything is ripped. I go to the hospital and there’s nothing wrong. They did three MRIs, a CAT scan, all this stuff. The whole window of the double-decker was shattered. They were like, ‘There’s no way you got hit like that and there’s no internal bleeding or anything.’ But I was fine.”

On a drug he’d never do again: “Opana. It’s like heroin. We snorted it. It was so dark. I’d never recommend it to anybody. One: it’s absolutely addictive. Two: to be addicted and to want that feeling over and over again… I’m not a person who goes down and then has a rush of positivity to bring themselves back up. I’m the type of person who likes to listen to sad music when I’m sad. I love to wallow and just sink and sink, so that’s why I’ll never touch that one again.”
