Machine Gun Kelly has made his ‘SNL’ debut! The singer performed his emotional track ‘Lonely’ and also rocked out with ‘My Ex’s Best Friend.’
Machine Gun Kelly, 30, was right at home on Saturday Night Live. The Texas native — née Colson Baker — made his debut on the long running NBC sketch series on Saturday, Jan, 30. He opened his first of two incredible performances with “My Ex’s Best Friend” feat. blackbear. Fans on Twitter quickly dubbed the SNL moment “a whole vibe,” and loved his live version. The star sported his signature pink for the playful performance, showing off a black and yellow manicure. Playing his guitar at the same time, MGK brought tons of energy to the upbeat performance as he showed off his vocals.
For his second performance, MGK performed song “Lonely” — one of his most emotional tacks off Tickets to My Downfall. Seated with his custom pink, black, and white guitar, the singer-songwriter gave his all into the performance as he rocked out with his band. I got in trouble/The first time my dad saw me/Dance with the devil,” he opened the track, which details his relationships with his late aunt and dad. His father passed away this past summer, and MGK has previously talked about how he lived with his aunt after his mom left him at just 9-years-old. “Lonely, lonely, even when the room is full/I’d trade it, trade it, I would trade it all for you,” he sings to them.
i remember when i was a kid watching @nbcsnl every weekend with my aunt and my dad,

MGK appeared in a hilarious promo alongside host John Krasinski, 41, earlier this week. The “Bloody Valentine” singer appeared to get some advice from The Office alum as well as long time cast member Heidi Gardner. Heidi put John on the spot as she said it was a “big week, huge week” at Studio 8H as John prepared to also make his SNL debut. “But no pressure though,” he laughed back, as Heidi retorted, “No, I’d say there’s tons of pressure. I mean, it’s the first show back, the first show of 2021 the first show since [Donald] Trump!” MGK then hilariously added, “She’s right, you better be funny.”

In another clip shared to Twitter to promote the episode, Heidi questioned Machine Gun Kelly about how, exactly, he decided on his stage name. “Hey I was wondering…how did you come up with the name Machine Gun Kelly?” she pondered. “Oh, my mother’s maiden name is Machine Gun,” MGK joked back. The name is actually a reference to prohibition era George Kelly Barnes (1895 – 1954), who earned his nickname from his favorite weapon. “I remember when I was a kid watching @nbcsnl every weekend with my aunt and my dad, since they aren’t here to see this moment, I’m going to perform the song I wrote for them on the show,” MGK tweeted ahead of the episode. “Hopefully, I’ll feel them there,” he also wrote.

Recently, fans thought the 30-year-old singer and his girlfriend of several months, Megan Fox, were engaged. The 34-year-old actress was spotted with a massive diamond ring on her left hand as she exited a car outside of NBC’s studios (where MGK would have been rehearsing for SNL), but she seemingly shut down the rumors with another cheeky post. The Transformers alum replaced the diamond with a signet ring reading “F— You” on Jan. 29. Notably, Megan just officially filed for divorce from her husband of over 10 years Brian Austin Green over Thanksgiving and it has yet to be finalized.
While the couple may not be engaged yet, sources previously spilled that the duo are more in love than ever. “MGK’s friends have never seen him like this before, he’s so in love with Megan and pretty much spends all his time with her,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “He says he wants to marry her and he wants her to have his baby, he talks about that very openly. Being with her has definitely tamed him, he’s laser focused on her and doing whatever he can to make her happy. It’s very sweet to see him so in love,” they added.
Emma Watson Meets Al Gore To Discuss Climate Change In Crop Top Made Of Recycled Fabrics
Emma Watson looked absolutely gorgeous wearing a tiny crop top made from recycled materials when she met with Al Gore to discuss climate change.
Emma Watson, 31, is not only super stylish, but she’s also eco-conscious and she proved that when she met with Al Gore to discuss climate change. For the occasion, Emma rocked a head-to-toe green floral Emilia Wickstead outfit that was made out of recycled yarn.
Emma’s top was a cropped cape that just covered her shoulders and ended at her chest, revealing her black bra underneath. She styled the shirt with a matching high-waisted midi skirt that put her toned abs and tiny waist on full display.
Emma posted about her outfit and thanked the designer, writing, “Thank you to the loveliest Emilia for making me this beautiful custom piece. It was handmade in London using leftover fabrics consisting of 62% recycled yarn that was locally sourced, woven, and printed in Italy. I will be wearing this a lot!!”
In another photo posted to Emma’s Instagram, she posed with Al as she smiled ear-to-ear. She captioned the picture, “‘Mother Nature is telling us what the truth is about this crisis. I mean, it’s crazy what’s going on. Every night on the TV news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation.’ — @algore.”
Emma has been on a roll lately with her upcycled outfits and just the other day she attended the Earthshot Prize ceremony in London on October 17, wearing a stunning white blouse with black trousers.
Emma’s white blouse featured tulle ruffle layers and was made from 10 recycled wedding dresses from Oxfam. The front of the shirt had a lace neckline with cut-out embroidery while the side had an asymmetrical hemline. Meanwhile, the entire back of the dress was cut out, revealing her bare skin.
‘Gossip Girl’ Fans Can’t Get Over How Penn Badgley’s ‘You’ Co-Star Looks Just Like Hilary Duff
Apparently Penn Badgley has a type! Twitter thinks his former ‘Gossip Girl’ lover, Hilary Duff, looks awfully similar to his ‘You’ wife, Victoria Pedretti.
Leave it to Twitter to come up with some wild Hollywood comparisons. In the week since You season 3 dropped on Netflix, fans have been tweeting that star Victoria Pedretti, 26, looks very similar to Hilary Duff, 34. And what makes this comparison even more noteworthy is that the two actresses have both been romantically involved on the small screen with none other than Penn Badgley, a.k.a Joe Goldberg in You, a.ka. Dan Humphrey in Gossip Girl. But let’s dive into these connections a little bit more, shall we?
So as any Gossip Girl fan knows, Penn, 34, rose to fame thanks to his performance in the hit teen drama. During season 3, he became romantically entangled with NYU beauty Olivia Burke, who is played by Hilary. The two had a brief, but memorable romance, which involved a threesome with Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Zhor). Hilary only played Olivia for six episodes before her storyline with Penn ended.
Now all these years later, Penn is back on the small screen as a psycho stalker-killer in Netflix’s hit You. Victoria was introduced in season 2 as Joe’s love interest, Love Quinn. The two develop a close bond (they’re both killers, after all!) and they get married and have a son once season 3 starts. Fans are now unapologetically comparing Victoria to Hilary in plenty of tweets, which is just hilarious considering their TV connection to Penn. Apparently this guy has a type when he’s at work!
You’re telling me Victoria Pedretti and Hilary Duff aren’t the same person?

On the screen, Penn clearly has a type. But his lover in real life is much different than either Victoria or Hilary, though not in a bad way! Penn married singer Domino Kirke, 37, in a super secret ceremony at a courthouse in Brooklyn, NY on February 27, 2017. When they tied the knot, Penn became a stepdad to Domino’s son Cassius, 12, whom she shares with ex Morgan O’Kane.
Penn and Domino later expanded their family when they welcomed their first child together, son James Badgley, in Aug. 2020. Penn has absolutely adored fatherhood, and he spends lots of time with his son. Except for when he’s killing as Joe Goldberg, of course.
Angelina Jolie In ‘Super Isolation’ After COVID-19 Exposure At ‘Eternals’ Premiere She Attended With Kids
Angelina Jolie brought along five of her six children to the Marvel event in Los Angeles, where she, along with several co-stars, were reportedly exposed to COVID.
Angelina Jolie, 46, was one of several people to reportedly be exposed to COVID-19 at Marvel’s Eternals premiere in Los Angeles on Oct. 18, according to Variety. The actress attended the star-studded event with five out of her six children — but now she is in “super isolation” along with co-stars Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan and Lauren Ridloff, as well as director Chloe Zhao. All five women had to miss the Elle’s “Women in Hollywood” event on Tuesday, where editor-in-chief Nina Garcia reportedly told the audience the the group was “just exposed, so to keep everyone safe those superheroes are now in super isolation.”
Disney also confirmed the possible exposures to Variety. A spokesperson said that while the premiere attendees have tested negative for COVID-19, the entire Eternals cast — which also includes Kit Harington, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani and more — will be “pivoting to virtual appearances rather than in-person events” to promote the new action film, which arrives in theaters on November 5.
It remains unclear how the cast members were exposed to COVID-19. It’s also unknown if guests at the event, including Angelina’s kids, are in isolation as well. The Maleficent star had brought along Maddox, 20, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, Vivienne, 13, and Knox, 13, to the big event. Only Pax, 17, did not attend the outing with his famous mother, who shares all six of the kids with ex Brad Pitt.
At the Eternals premiere, Angelina rocked a stunning, strapless brown draped Balmain Resort 2022 gown. She also wore a gold chin cuff that was fastened between the inside of her bottom lip and all the way around the bottom of her chin. She posed for many photos on the carpet with the five kids, as well as with her fellow castmates.
Angelina stars in the Marvel movie as Thena, a fierce warrior Eternal who can form any weapon out of cosmic energy. While the film isn’t out yet, reports have said that Harry Styles (!) appears as Eros — though this has yet to be confirmed by the heads of Marvel/Disney.
