From costars to besties! Machine Gun Kelly and Pete Davidson have often hyped each other up throughout their time in the spotlight. The friends, who initially met on the set of Wild ’N Out in 2017, told Coveteur two years later that they grew closer on the set of 2019’s The Dirt. “And then we became the bestest of the friends,” the Saturday Night Live star added in the May 2019 video.
During the same interview, Davidson admitted that he rapped “every single word” of Kelly’s “Breaking News” track when they first crossed paths. “Nah, Jeff Tremaine put me on the spot and was like, ‘Yeah, you’re a big fan?’ Yeah, I go, ‘Yeah.’ And then I just snapped off,” Davidson recalled.
“We met each other at Wild ‘N Out way back,” Kelly (real name Colson Baker) previously told Billboard in August 2018. “And then met each other years later when I was filming that Mötley Crüe movie, ’cause he’s in that Mötley Crüe movie. And then we were just stuck down there in New Orleans, and we were both just, like, super stoners. …[We] listened to the same music. … So that’s my boy.”
