Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly has opened up about his struggle with snagging women from the Big Apple and why despite good looks, New York ladies are not checking for him.
Acknowledging his lack of confidence, MGK said he is very particular when it comes to targeting possible flirting opportunities.
"New York women: so hot and I can't get any of them," MGK said in an interview. "None of them like me. Here in this office, that girl right there [gestures to an intern], she's pretty hot and hasn't looked at me once. Not once. No interest in me. If I go over there right now, or when she's on break, she's not going to talk to me. I don't know what the f*ck it is. Honestly, I look in the mirror and I'm not the greatest looking kid. But I feel like I can pull an 8. Maybe a 7. I don't approach a 9 in New York. I feel like 7 is do-able. But the 8s hate." (Complex)
Fellow Cleveland rapper Kid Cudi previously talked about the cultural differences between their hometown and New York City.
"Never," Cudi said about launching his own lines. "I'm a fan of fashion; I want to be the consumer. I know it's cliche for artists to have their own brand and sh*t, but that's too much stress. No colognes, no perfumes, and if I did, it'd probably be, like, eau de Egyptian musk...[In New York], people's style is expressed more through their personality than what's in at the time. You see all different styles in New York, and that's what made me want to stay here. I experienced more in the first six years I was here than I did the whole time I was in Cleveland. It's cool."

Outside of women chasing, MGK recently talked to SOHH about signing female fans' chests at concerts.
"You have to be a Rager, anyone can sign boobs, but you have to be a true Rager," MGK told SOHH. "I don't sign, actually, it's pretty funny, I don't sign any boobs unless I'm signing the nipple. That's actually a rule I have. Nah, dead serious. You can ask my road manager. He tells all the girls, 'He's not going to sign your boobs, he's going to sign your nipple though. We push the limits. This is the Motley Crue of hip-hop. That's what's going on right now. Spread the word. We card, too. We don't sign any 15 year-old boobies. I'll sign [a poster] but not their nipples. This is for the 18 and over year olds." (SOHH)
Earlier this month, Kelly announced his signing to Bad Boy Records.
"Today, I signed my first record deal," Kelly said in an announcement video. "See, this might be the first time a lot of you even heard the name Machine Gun Kelly. But to me, my team and my fans, it's been a long time coming. In just the past three years, me and my friends have gone from being able to share our dream with 15 people to living it in front of 15,000. See, I'm a 21 year-old kid from Cleveland, Ohio who truly started from the basement. And it wasn't even my basement. It was a studio that we built in my manager's mom's spot...I had a daughter on the way, dropped out of college and got fired from my fastfood job all when I was 18. So I was just like, 'F*ck it.' Drove nine hours to New York City and made history by becoming the first rapper to ever win an amateur night at the world famous Apollo Theater." (Machine Gun Kelly Announcement)
