Nikki Sixx Calls for Artists to Be Honest on Social Media
In a Facebook post written earlier today, Sixx stresses that he posts all of his own “Facebook,Twitter and Instagram stuff and always have.” He notes that “the whole point is to have a relationship with your fans that’s more than one dimensional.”
I don’t agree with artists who have other people always posting for them or posting the same thing across multiple account’s….Even though I misspell, I believe fans would rather have a relationship with me than my assistant. I also think its absurd when artists buy followers to make themselves look more popular than they really are. This isn’t a popularity contest…Rock n roll was never about being popular, its always been about being real.
Sixx recently chimed in on the Spotify controversy, writing on Facebook about streaming music’s “one-sided business model” that hurts artists. It’s a passionate post that attempts to clarify some of the confusing ins and outs of how streaming music services affect artists. But it also features misplaced apostrophes and other grammar no-nos that Internet trolls love to jump on. Sixx’s recent post most likely stemmed from online reaction to this.
