Megan Fox’s book “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous: Poems” has been published on Tuesday

American actress Megan Fox has opened up about love, betrayal and other aspects of her life through a book of collection of poems, “Pretty Boys Are Poisonous.”

These poems were written in an attempt to excise the illness that had taken root in me because of my silence. I’ve spent my entire life keeping the secrets of men, my body aches from carrying the weight of their sins,” Fox explained in a statement

My freedom lives in these pages, and I hope that my words can inspire others to take back their happiness and their identity by using their voice to illuminate what’s been buried, but not forgotten, in the darkness,” she explained further.

In the collection of poems, the 37-year-old hasn’t named anyone. But there are speculations that it’s about her equation with fiancé Machine Gun Kelly with whom she has suffered several highs and lows since coming together in 2020.

In an interaction with People, Fox talked about the inspiration behind the book and said, “It comes from a lot of places. Some of it is literal, while other parts are allegorical. Some poems contain a Grimm’s-fairy-tale-type element, and others serve the same purpose as memes in online culture.”

I’ve been in the public eye for a long time and my career has been one long witch hunt. So nervous? No,” said Fox.

“I expect a mixture of admiration and vitriol from the public,” she added.
