Machine Gun Kelly has detailed the life-changing psychedelic trip that he underwent with Megan Fox.
The rapper, born Colson Baker, revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that taking ayahuasca in Costa Rica alongside his fiancee was 'one of the most important things that happened to me in my life'.
The musician recalled how he was one of 'about 20 people' to embark on the drug experience 'in the jungle'.
“You’re dieting, you’re not eating past 5pm or drinking water or anything and I was the last person to go up and take it.
“I remember watching everyone go up and take theirs, they had one cup and they get to me and the shaman says something to the translator and the translator goes, ‘she says you have a big shadow of darkness behind you, you need more’,” Baker explained, having drank four cups of the drug brew that day.
Although MGK had a seemingly amazing time on the drug, which is a blend of two plants, one of which contains dimethyltryptamine (DMT), Fox quite the opposite experience at the time.
The 31-year-old explained on the talk show: “I remember even going to the third night and Megan was like, ‘I can't, I can't do this. I can't go back'.”
He continued: “Her first night it was rainbows and unicorns. It was great. Her second night it was ‘I don't ever want to see that again’.”
Despite his partner being hesitant to continue the spiritual journey, Baker explained how they were 'exercising some things out of us that we needed to get rid of'.
“The plant was a medicine that really went inside, you could feel it working inside your body and even after you left it stayed there,” he said.
Ayahuasca, the drug which MGK and Fox both took, is a psychoactive tea that is thought to originate from the Amazon region, South America.
Traditionally, healers have used the product due to its supposed healing properties in the ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and chacruna shrub (Psychotria Viridis), which contains the hallucinogenic drug DMT.
Ayahuasca is only legal in Peru as part of a spiritual ceremony and is not supposed to be taken unsupervised.
