Content warning: This post discusses suicide.

Machine Gun Kelly has given his life story the documentary treatment. Directed by Sam Cahill, “Life in Pink” – which premiered on June 28 – offers an in-depth look at the “Twin Flame” musician (born Colson Baker), tracing the dramatic highs and lows of his life and storied career. Hulu’s new documentary, billed as an “all-access pass,” shares MGK’s most intimate thoughts about “tackling noise from the outside world, stardom, fatherhood, and more,” per its synopsis.

Beyond his career, “Life in Pink” also takes a candid look at some of the biggest battles MGK has encountered in life – including death, drugs, childhood trauma, and a suicide attempt.

The trailer for the documentary was released on June 16 and was a two-and-a-half-minute clip that describes MGK as “this generation’s most polarising rockstar.” “My life wasn’t always like this,” he says at the top of the trailer. “I just don’t think anyone saw me coming.”

MGK serves as an executive producer for the doc, along with Diddy, Stephen Astephen, Andre Cisco, Ashleigh Veverka, and John Janick. “Life in Pink” features appearances from MGK’s soon-to-be wife, Megan Fox; friend Travis Barker; 12-year-old daughter, Casie Colson Baker; and late father.

“Life in Pink” comes on the heels of MGK’s real-life-inspired stoner comedy “Good Mourning,” created alongside Mod Sun, which premiered on May 20. The movie marked both artists’ screenwriting and directorial debuts. MGK is also starring in another film titled “Taurus,” which premiered at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival in June. Now, with “Life in Pink,” MGK has added another film credit to his résumé.
