We all love a little something that reminds us of our nearest and dearest, but Machine Gun Kelly has really gone all out.  

Another day, another story about a rapper doing something bizarre. 

Earlier this month, it was announced that rapper Lil Uzi Vert had an enormous pink diamond pierced into his forehead. 

The new surface piercing is said to have cost him $24 million, or £17 million.

The rapper has been showing off his new face jewellery on Instagram. The jewellery is reported to be a 10-carat diamond.

Lil Uzi Vert’s face piercing really set the bar high for weird things rappers can do to make headlines. 

Could anything match this? 

Yes. Another rapper, Machine Gun Kelly, has only gone and announced that he possesses a droplet of his girlfriend’s blood. He wears her blood in a pendant around his neck. How romantic. 

The blood allegedly belongs to 34 year-old actress and model Megan Fox. Fox and Kelly announced their relationship in June last year. Clearly, once you hit the 8 month relationship milestone, you can begin to exchange bodily fluids…

Machine Gun Kelly announced the bewildering news on his Instagram by sharing an image of the pendant in question. 

The pendant is a circular ball with a glass interior which holds a drop of Megan Fox’s blood. Apparently. 

Machine Gun Kelly set the location of his instagram to ‘My Bloody Valentine’ which is a very nuanced reference. Not only does it relate to valentine’s day, it references his hit single with Travis Barker. Oh – it also references the fact that he owns a droplet of his valentine’s blood. Clever. 

His caption was simply: ‘i wear your blood around my neck 🔪🩸’. This is really romantic stuff.

Megan Fox also posted a valentine’s instagram post. Alongside pictures of her blood-owning-boyfriend, she wrote:

“There goes my heart/ manifest outside of my body/ draped in the towering silhouette of a most unusually handsome boy.

“Magical and haunted/ kinetic and tortured/ ethereal and dangerous/ cosmic lawless eternal creative genius/ the journey will likely be perilous/ but there is no destination without him.

“Happy valentine’s day rehab barbie.”

The romance just doesn’t stop.

Other Instances Of Blood Necklaces

Machine Gun Kelly did not set this bloody trend, however.

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s allegedly also wore eachothers blood around their necks.

In 2014, Thornton said that Jolie had purchased two lockets that  are “clear and you put a picture of your grannie in and wear it around your neck”.

Explaining what they put inside the lockets, Thornton said:  “We were apart a lot because she’s off making Tomb Raider and I’m making Monster’s Ball. She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter’s baby hair in one.

“Same thing. From that, we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks. And we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon.”

How delightful.
