Machine Gun Kelly is keeping it real.
On an episode of The Drew Barrymore Show that is set to air on Friday, Dec. 10, the 31-year-old rocker and actor and host Drew Barrymore had a candid chat about mental health, as he painted her nails with his newly released unisex UN/DN LAQR nail polish.
“I think I’m new to being vulnerable outside of songs, so it’s like, I see a lot of pictures of me and there’s like, smiles on them,” he said. “It’s just weird though because I didn’t feel good at all that day and I kind of am sick of smiling on days when I don’t feel like smiling. And I feel like this odd pressure because I don’t want, like, my fans to think that I’m taking something for granted.”
He continued, “So if, like, I accept an award and I’m like, super smiley but behind the scenes, I was really, there was like stuff going on, or I didn’t feel, I don’t know, like, a lot of what I do is for other people and I haven’t given myself the time to just accept that it’s OK to not be OK.”
