Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx Continues Feud with ‘Angry Midget’ Godsmack Singer
It’s been a few months since we’ve been treated to a flareup in the ongoing war of words between Motley Crue and Godsmack, but just when we were starting to worry that we’d have to sate our appetite for rocker feuds with the Van Halen/Chickenfoot and Axl/Slash beefs, Motley’s Nikki Sixx has made it clear that he still isn’t a fan of Godsmack’s Sully Erna.
“We’re looking for an angry midget for our Vegas shows and was thinking of using the singer from Godsmack,” Sixx tweeted Sunday, adding a new chapter to the series of hostile exchanges that started back in 2009, when Erna complained about his band’s treatment on the Crue Fest 2 tour and Sixx accused him of “crying like a bitch.”
Erna turned around and wrote a song called ‘Cryin’ Like a Bitch,’ which lambastes its subject for strutting “On by like a king / Telling everybody they know nothing” and sneers, “Long lived what you thought you were / Time ain’t on your side anymore.” Of course, it was written about Sixx; as Erna later put it, his mindset on the tour boiled down to “You know what?! If there’s gonna be some people that are gonna treat other people a certain way, then I’m gonna go out there every night and . . . make sure that we make you look old and fat, and go home with a nice big fat paycheck.”
So who knows? Maybe Sixx is offering a big fat paycheck for the “angry midget” position at its shows, and perhaps Erna can collect some quick extra cash. But we’d say it’s probably more likely that we’ll end up seeing yet another round unfold in the war of Godsmack and the Crue.
