Megan Fox is defending her decision to drink a "drop" of Machine Gun Kelly's blood.

During Wednesday's episode of Call Her Daddy, the 37-year-old actress reflected on her 2022 revelation that she drank MGK's blood as part of their engagement.

At the time, she said they "drank each other's blood," and she later told British Glamour that it was for "ritual purposes only."

Now, as Fox told Call Her Daddy's Alex Cooper this week, she believes "everything is a matter of what you're accustomed to or what is currently socially acceptable or normal."


After comparing drinking MGK's blood to children who became "blood brothers" in TV and film by putting drops of their blood together, Fox clarified the meaning of her and and her partner's gesture.

"That's not satanic, right? That's normal and that's cute and sweet. That's an innocent ... little bond between kids who love each other and they have a pure friendship," she said. "It's like that, except instead of rubbing your fingers together, the drop of blood goes in your mouth."

Fox then further defended their blood bonding by questioning others' sexual preferences involving different bodily fluids, which she said is "disgusting."

"So f--- you, you're so offended that I got a drop of Machine Gun Kelly's blood in my mouth," she said, in part, while joking about the topic. "... Honestly, though, it's a matter of perspective. What is so gross about what I did with my soulmate...?"

After defending drinking the blood of MGK (real name Colson Baker, 33), Fox brought up her own religious background, having grown up as a Pentecostal Christian, and explained that she has "never been part of a satanic ritual" and doesn't "know of any people who have been a part of a satanic ritual."

The Jennifer's Body actress also added that she is "not a satanist or any kind of an evil witch" and that ultimately, "anything is a ritual," as she referenced going to church and having a skincare routine as rituals. She also revealed that her partner didn't necessarily want her to clarify.

" 'It's so much cooler that people think we're this bizarre, ... that we're doing this kind of magical weird s--- in our basement,' " Fox recalled of what MGK told her. " 'Let them think that's going on.' "

On Instagram, Fox clarified that her comments on the podcast came with her own style of humor: "if you don’t understand sardonic or self deprecating humor and/or you have a compulsive need to vomit negativity onto others don’t bother watching this, you’re gonna be really lost and overstimulated."

Fox, who first met Kelly in 2020 while filming Midnight in the Switchgrass, also revealed during her latest interview that she finds MGK's new dramatic blackout tattoo to be "really elegant."

During her sit-down with Cooper, Fox explained that the musician had a "special story" behind his latest shocking tattoo. "But the relationship with the tattoos that he had was very conflicted emotionally, whatever they represented — and I don't actually know — but he didn't like to revisit those memories of some of the tattoos that he had and he wanted to get rid of them," Fox said.

"It's like an elevated version of all those tattoos that were pieced together," she added. "I think it's really elegant and it's kind of ahead of its time. I think in 10 years it'll be a trend."
