Machine Gun Kelly and Pete Davidson Take a Lie Detector Test: Watch


Machine Gun Kelly and Pete Davidson endured the ultimate friendship test by taking a lie detector test for Vanity Fair.

The Dirt co-stars sat down and asked each other questions that ranged from Davidson’s Saturday Night Live skits (i.e. whether he is the funniest cast member) to Colson Baker’s (aka Kelly) rapping-slash-acting career. The duo’s bromance was on full display as they continuously reassured themselves that they “can’t tear us apart” with some scattered fist bumps throughout the entertaining video.

Baker was up first on the “hot seat,” laughing when Davidson asked if he was nervous, and if he was “worried he might incriminate” himself during the interview (“Absolutely,” he said).

Davidson then dove into asking some hard-hitting questions, such as if Baker thought that he could be a “good rapper” — to which the “Bad Things” rapper swiftly responded with, “No.”

However, he did concede when Davidson asked if he could come up with a freestyle in the moment.

Davidson and Baker both sighed and rolled his eyes when the comedian had to ask about BDE (big dick energy) from the prepared questions. Even so, Baker admitted that George Clooney and Rihanna have “more BDE” than Davidson. “This isn’t even fair, you gotta show people that could go the other way, these are obvious no’s,” Davidson added.

Then, when Davidson asked Baker if he foresees himself rapping into his 70’s, he shook his head and said to the camera, “That’s not it, and y’all know that’s not it.” “We don’t wanna be like some guys, just overstaying our welcome, being corny,” the rapper added.

When it was Davidson’s turn to go on the hot seat, Baker asked if John Mulaney — who he’s currently on a comedy tour with for their "Sundays with Pete & John” show — is his best friend, he admitted that he is. “But you are also my best friend, you can have two best friends,” Davidson explained.

Baker then asked about that time Davidson had dinner with Kanye West, Kid Cudi and Timothée Chalamet — with a group picture of the four making rounds on the internet shortly after. He said they “ate a bunch of rich people stuff” that he didn’t even know the names of, and that he ended up paying for the lavish dinner. “Who ordered the most expensive dish?” Baker asked.

“Kanye kept ordering the whole entire time,” he explained. “I didn’t know he was coming, and I already put my card down to pay ‘cause I thought it was just me and Cudi — and then Kanye showed up and then Chalamet showed up and I was like, ‘oh fuck.’ I had to book two more gigs in Ohio.”
