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.

    Kids really piss me off sometimes...bullying this girl like it's her fault. I don't get it. But it's so awesome she got to meet Nikki and was acknowledged for reaching out to others. As someone who struggles with mental illness, it's pretty inspirational to read articles like this.

    "..that she has a mental disorder called trichotillomania, which causes her to pull out her hair" Holy Crap! I sometimes feel like I could pull out all my hair, but it's just a figure of speech. That sh1t must be painful.

    Wow, that is awesome. I like Motley Crue's music, but I always thought they were a bunch of *****s in real life. This story alone has just made me respect Nikki Sixx a whole lot more and not just for his music now.

    The news video was poorly made, though, IMO, which is unfortunate because I was thinking about sharing this as an example with the class. I feel like in this video they focus too much on Nikki Sixx and not enough on the girl. Instead of opening the picture, I think it would have been a much better picture to have at the end. In my opinion the news story would have been ten times more effective if the first thirty seconds were about the girl's back story with being bullied, then the next thirty seconds are about how Nikk Sixx shows up on the scene to stick up for her and then they finish with the highly effective picture that really got me emotionally involved instead of throwing it out there first.
