Singer and rapper Machine Gun Kelly revealed what he thought of undergoing therapy to overcome his past drug addiction issues.
Machine Gun Kelly has been one of the most controversial musicians in the music world. His beef with Eminem reflected his personality and career. His relationship with actress Megan Fox seems to have calmed him a little more recently, and he seemed to have overcome some mental health issues.
During a recent interview, the 30-year-old musician explained how he took steps to recover from addiction and talked about the impact on his mental health.
Here’s what he said:
“Currently, my drug of choice is happiness and commitment to the art, rather than commitment to a vice that I believed made the art.
I had my first therapy session… That’s the first time I ever went, ‘Hey, I need to separate these two people’, which is Machine Gun Kelly and (my real name) Colson Baker. The dichotomy is too intense for me.”
He continued and said that undergoing therapy will have a positive impact on his own family. Stating that commitment to change is inspiring, MGK said that therapy’s effect will resonate in the universe and definitely in his family. He continued:
“The tools that I’ve been given to start with seem helpful, I think.
I’m still kind of ripping my hair out: ‘Why am I not changing overnight? How am I supposed to meditate for 10 minutes when I can’t even sit in my own brain for two minutes without distracting myself by doing something?’ That’s really hard. But the commitment to change is inspiring, and I think will reverberate through the universe and definitely through my family.”
