Machine Gun Kelly opened up to Interview Magazine about going to therapy to beat his past drug abuse issues. The rapper explained how he is “taking steps” to look after himself. “Currently, my drug of choice is happiness and commitment to the art, rather than commitment to a vice that I believed made the art,” MGK said. When asked who inspired the change, MGK said that Travis Barker played a major part. “He’s lived it… It’s much different than a priest or something, where I’m like, ‘How can you relate to me…?’ With Travis, it’s like, ‘I know for a fact that you went through what I’m going through’,” he said.
