The stars aligned for rapper, actor and director Machine Gun Kelly, who was inspired by Star Wars when understanding his destiny as a multi-hyphenate star.
The 30-year-old sat down for an interview with Radio.com's DTS Sound Space on Sunday (March 7) and performed "Tickets to My Downfall," "Concert For Aliens," "My Ex's Best Friend," and "Bloody Valentine" from his Billboard 200 No. 1 album Tickets to My Downfall. He opened up about the moment he realized his path was multifaceted when he found himself idolizing and imitating movie characters and musicians.
"I realized when I would watch movies and go to school trying to be like characters in movies. That was when I realized I didn't have a solid foundation in my home life to follow after, so I was just idolizing whoever who was in my headphones or was in front of me in the TV or magazines," he said, specifically noting that it dawned on him that he'd have multiple paths "when I wanted to be a Jedi."
