Machine Gun Kelly (real name Colson Baker) is very outspoken about his dislike for fame and the spotlight, so there's a bit of irony to be found in his relationship with Amber Rose.

The rapper and model started dating in April but have played it very cool, especially since Rose Instagrammed a photo of herself with her ex, Wiz Khalifa, calling him her "#ManCrushEverday." So this relationship could definitely come as a surprise to many.

MGK opened up about his growing relationship with the model in an interview with Hot 97 and how it all came to be. "Everything was completely natural," he said. "It wasn't anything I had expected or had planned or anything like that. You know when the universe throws something your way or things happen, I'm one of those people that goes with it, and I don't fight it."

But because of Rose's constant place in the spotlight and media, the "Invincible" rapper confessed that it can be very difficult for him to handle the pressures of dating her.

"I had no idea what came with [Rose's lifestyle]," he added. "I'd be lying if I didn't say that it's not like a struggle every day doubled with the fact that it is like one of the most anti-spotlight people ever and one of the most in-the-spotlight people ever."

Although he has worked hard to get to his level of success, MGK insisted that fame is overrated.

"You don't want this," he said.

But there could be some potential awkwardness between Rose's current flame and her former husband, as they collaborated on the song "Mind of a Stoner." She and Khalifa called it quits in September 2014 after she alleged that the "See You Again" rapper had cheated on her.

They share 2-year-old son Sebastian.
