Machine Gun Kelly is happy to stay out of the limelight, though his budding romance with Amber Rose might make that hard to do.

In a new interview with Hot 97, the rapper opens up about the difficulties in dating someone as high-profile as the model. As someone who calls fame “wack,” Machine Gun Kelly says he understands why some people might judge him for dating someone who is constantly making headlines in the tabloids.

“Everything was completely natural,” he says of how their relationship came to be. “It wasn’t anything I had expected or had planned or anything like that. You know when the universe throws something your way or things happen, I’m one of those people that goes with it, and I don’t fight it.”

“I had no idea what came with that,” he continues about his girlfriend’s lifestyle. “I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it’s not like a struggle every day doubled with the fact that it is like one of the most anti-spotlight people ever and one of the most in-the-spotlight people ever.”

“It’s one of those things that makes you rethink the whole fame thing again.”

Romance rumors surrounding MGK, 25, and Rose, 31, first started swirling in April when the two were seen holding hands during a walk around New York City. The duo were also spotted packing PDA at an airport that same week when Kelly picked Rose up from her flight.

Kelly previously collaborated with Rose’s estranged husband, Wiz Khalifa, on the track “Mind of a Stoner.”
