Best Celebrity Music Video Cameos Ever: Kylie Jenner and More
In May 2020, the Transformers actress turned heads with a steamy performance as the love interest in then-rumored boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly‘s “Bloody Valentine” video. The two nearly locked lips in the playful visual, all but confirming that sparks were flying between the two.
“Megan thinks MGK is a really cool guy,” an insider told Us Weekly exclusively at the time. “They have definitely hooked up and are seeing where things go.”
The pair met while filming Midnight in the Switchgrass and fueled relationship rumors following Fox’s split from her husband of nearly 10 years, Brian Austin Green. One month after the music video’s debut, a source confirmed that the New Girl alum and the rapper “are officially dating and referring to one another as boyfriend and girlfriend.”
While some music video cameos make a romantic impact, others cause controversy. Jenner strutted her stuff in the video for Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s NSFW single, “WAP,” but some fans weren’t too pleased with her featured moment.
“Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door,” one fan tweeted in August 2020 after watching the rappers’ video. “If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”
Despite the negativity surrounding the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star’s cameo, the Grammy winner stood her ground.
“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her f—kin ass off! Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense?” Cardi replied on Twitter. “The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your ass. … Not everything is about race.”
In another post, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper explained the reasoning behind Jenner’s surprising music video moment.
“Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister [Hennessy] and daughter [Kulture] so lovely at her kid [Stormi’s] bday party,” she tweeted, adding that other members of Jenner’s family have often given her “advice on certain things I ask for.”
