Ahead of the publication of her book of poetry, Megan Fox sheds light on what this collection of work means to her.
Pretty Boys Are Poisonous: Poems Set to hit stores on November 7, Megan sat down with People to share her inspiration for the poems and why she believes writing is more cathartic than acting.
Consumables 4 the star revealed that the book will feature a combination of her personal experiences, while using symbolism and humor to highlight the “people secrets” she has been keeping.
“It comes from a lot of places,” Megan told People. “Some of it is literal, and other parts are names. Some poems contain an element similar to a Grimm’s fairy tale, while others serve the same purpose as memes in online culture .”
Megan said this book is “something women can relate to.” She’s been writing for a long time, and it felt freeing to let these feelings out.
“Acting doesn’t give me the opportunity to fully express myself the way writing does because I’m reading someone else’s words under someone else’s guidance. Poetry gives me the opportunity to experience catharsis through art .”
Her relationships, both past and present, have played an important role in her poetry. Megan explained the problems and difficulties that come with them.
“For most of us, it’s not a fairy tale,” said mother of three who is currently engaged to Machine Gun Kelly. “Relationships are not very pretty. They are ugly. Sometimes they are a war. But through injury comes an opportunity to grow and become a stronger, more whole version of yourself.”
But even though she is ready for the world to experience her written creativity, fans are only getting a taste of what she has to offer, and she is not afraid of how it will be received.
“I didn’t even bother to send most of what I wrote to my editor, because they were too graphic and too difficult for other people to read. “
“I’ve been in the public eye for a long time and my career has been a long witch hunt,” Megan said. “So weird? No. I expect a mixture of admiration and vitriol from the public.”
