Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx shared a tweet to target the press that misused his words about former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth’s response to his invitation to draw the fans’ attention.
As you may recall, Los Angeles Times recently released its fall preview, which consisted of exciting news about some artists’ upcoming projects. Nikki Sixx’s new memoir entitled ‘The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx’ was also featured in the article and was exciting news for Mötley Crüe fans.
In addition to the information about the book, the article included the information that David Lee Roth refused Mötley Crüe’s offer to join their Stadium Tour in 2022, saying that ‘I don’t open for bands that I influenced.’ Roth’s words, which were revealed by Nikki Sixx, stayed on the headlines for a while.
In his recent tweet, Sixx criticized the media for misusing his words to create clickbait headlines insinuating that Roth despises Mötley Crüe. He emphasized that he feels terrible for feeding these websites as their only aim is to rip off the fans and gain more money from the advertisements.
Sixx’s tweet read as follows:
“The media takes one sentence out of a new book and makes it a headline. Clickbait. I’ve come to despise bottom feeder press. Ripping off fans to sell advertisements…“
