The 2009 cult film is about high school cheerleader Jennifer, who becomes possessed after being sacrificed to (very emo) Satan. Jennifer is of course played by Megan Fox, who happens to be Machine Gun Kelly’s fiancée.
During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden On Thursday (February 24), Machine Gun Kelly said, “People don’t know, I wrote my verse to Jennifer Check from Jennifer’s body. So it’s just a bit of a stretch that people haven’t understood. So if you listen to the verse again, it correlates to the movie.”
In case you’re wondering, Machine Gun Kelly’s verse is, “She’s got her makeup on by the mirror in her bedroom / Thigh-high fishnets and black boots / Nose pierced with cigarette scent Half dead, but she still looks so cute (Yeah) / She’s a freak in disguise / And she knows all the lyrics to the trap songs.”
He then sings, “Takes pictures with cherry red lipstick / Says she only dates niggas with a big (Mmm).”
Ok, does that make so much sense?
Elsewhere, Machine Gun Kelly has revealed that his upcoming wedding to Megan is on hold as they are unable to find a wedding venue that will see his “gothic” vision.
When asked if they had set a wedding date yet, he replied: “When they can build me, like, a red river with gothic… The location is difficult, I’m trying to find a place that matches my artistic art [vision].”
