13-Year-Old Girl's Anti-Bullying Video Leads To Meeting With Nikki Sixx
According to Blabbermouth, a 13-year-old girl's dream came true Wednesday at the Minnesota State Fair when she got to meet Motley Crue/Sixx: A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx. Chloe McCarty made a video last fall in which she used Sixx: A.M.'s song "Skin" to reveal that she has a mental disorder called trichotillomania, which causes her to pull out her hair, and as a result, be bullied by her classmates. "Basically, it was just telling who I am, what my story was and making people feel like no matter who they are it's okay to be themselves," Chloe explained. Sixx was so moved after watching the video that he tweeted, "Chloe, I wanna meet you. You are a role model Your strength will give others hope .. THANK YOU." Sixx also arranged for a conference call with McCarty in December that also included his Sixx: A.M. bandmates. "They were thanking me but I was thanking them the whole time," McCarty told the Boston Herald. "I mean, it was their song." Chloe also got to meet Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and Nikki's "Sixx Sense" radio show co-host Kerri Kasem. Sixx tweeted after the meeting: "With the beautiful Chloe McCarty in St Paul." He also posted a picture of the two of them.
