Machine Gun Kelly Desired Teen Sex with Kendall Jenner

Machine Gun Kelly & Kendall Jenner (17)

Stephanie Soteriou reported for Buzzfeed News that "Machine Gun Kelly’s Resurfaced Comments About Then-Underage Kendall Jenner Have Sparked Huge Backlash". 

Soteriou related that in an interview with Fuse in 2013, Kelly, then 23, shared that he was not willing to "wait" until Kendall, then 17, was of legal age (in California).
“I don't care who my first celebrity crush was because right now it's Kendall Jenner.”
“God damn I've said that so many motherfucking times, I hope that I'm snagging that. Don't let me move to LA. Oof, I'm finding her."

Fuse asked Kelly if he were “counting down the days” until Kendall was 18 (i.e., Barely Legal in L.A.) to which Kelly replied impatiently:
“I’m not waiting until she’s 18, I’ll go now. I’m 23, dog, I’m not like a creepy age, y’know what I’m saying? I’m 23, she’s 17, and she’s a celebrity. There’s no limits right there.”
In an attempt to justify his stance, Kelly related that Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant dated a 14-year-old and Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose dated a 16-year-old and that Rose even wrote a song about the age-gap affair. 
“Robert Plant, who is one of the greatest lead singers ever, dated a girl who was 14,” Machine Gun Kelly continued. “Axl Rose [pictured below] was one of the biggest badasses ever, dated a girl who was 16 and wrote a song on his first album about the girl that was 16.”
Jimmy Page (24) & Lori Maddux (14)

In reference to the lyrics, "One day soon you're gonna reach sixteen\Painted lady in the city of lies" on Led Zeppelin's "Sick Again", Robert Plant shared in Dave Lewis' The Complete Guide to the Music of Led Zeppelin that the lyrics were not inspired (solely) by Lori Maddux but that they were inspired by a number of nymphet groupies whom the band met during their 1972 US tour. 

And Slash wrote in Slash that Axl Rose had sex with 15-year-old Michelle in the loft before Michelle "freaked out intensely". In addition, per Mick Wall's Last of the Giants: The True Story of Guns N’ Roses, after Michelle freaked out she was: "A naked, underage girl running away from adult men [Slash and Rose] along one of the busiest streets in Los Angeles [...]"

Contrary to Soteriou's reporting, it appears that Kelly's comments didn't cause a "huge" backlash; however, there were some comments posted on social media that didn't condone Kelly's stance. 

But maybe what Kelly was trying to express is his frustration with the inconsistent age of consent laws in the US. For instance, the age of consent in Houston, TX, Kelly's hometown, like New York City, is 17; thus, Kendall would have been of legal age in that regard. (Note: The age of consent across the Hudson from Manhattan is 16.)

Kylie Jenner (17)

But, Kendall and the Kardashian clan may have agreed with Kelly, because Kylie, then 17, had an (illegal) age-gap sexual relationship with Tyga, then 25, which was was condoned, specifically, by Khloe Kardashian whom, per The Washington Post, opined:
"Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You’re not gonna say, 'Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?' and have her say, 'Having a slumber party at my girlfriend’s' or 'Going to prom.' That’s not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.”
In the end, (ultra) orthodox Jews and practicing Muslims would say that they're all putting the cart before the horse, because one will never know, but if Kelly, à la Elvis, would have asked for Kendall's hand in marriage, to Megan Fox's dismay, the Kardashian's may have planned a lavish age-gap wedding.
