Motley Crue Icon Drops Disturbing AIDS Bombshell


Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx discussed drugs and AIDS in a new Billboard magazine interview. A Motley Crue family member recently revealed what’s worse than heroin.

“I’ve been getting a lot of people saying, ‘It’s fantastic that you’re talking about this epidemic, but some of them need this. Some of us have chronic pain, and if you take it away from us, Nikki, we’re going to live in pain’,” explains Sixx. “That’s really not the message at all. We’re talking about the epidemic. We’re talking about the pharmaceutical companies. We’re talking about over-prescribing when they’re not needed.

That’s not been monitored strongly enough so that people who go in with a broken foot end up two years later strung out on Oxys or whatever they get. And then what do they do about that? They don’t know how to get out of that, and it’s a downward spiral.

You know where they go? They go to the street and buy junk. They buy smack, they buy Persian heroin, they shoot it up, they fucking overdose, they die, they get AIDS, they get Hep C. We want to bring awareness just to the conversation, but we’re not trying to erase pain medication.”

A Motley Crue icon recently made a sad car accident claim. U2 singer Bono and his RED charity are working with Shepard Fairey and several artists to paint AIDS awareness murals in Washington, London, New York, Berlin, Lyon, and Paris before the Global Fund Replenishment Conference.

“Street artists have been raising the alarm in the fight against AIDS since HIV appeared — from the streets of New York in the 1980s, and now in the next weeks in cities around the world with Paint (RED) Save Lives,” the U2 frontman said. “There has been a lot of progress, more than many experts predicted, but not enough yet to put the sirens to rest. Young women continue to bear the brunt of this disease and maddeningly, every week 6,000 of them are needlessly infected. I’d call that an emergency. (RED) is the color of emergency.”

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee’s wife Brittany Furlan recently called out a big name famous actor affair. A fan tweeted her, “I’ve gotten suckered into ‘the lifestyle’ by a couple different men I was in long term, committed relationships with and both times it completely destroyed the relationship and my trust. #NeverAgain #imwithyougirl.”

Brittany responded, “I’ve also experienced this and it’s a no go.” You can read Nikki Sixx’s full interview at Billboard.
