Paris Jackson Explains Nikki Sixx And Tommy Lee’s Influence On Her
In her conversation with Allure, Michael Jackson’s daughter and musician Paris Jackson revealed that she bought her first red lipstick thanks to Mötley Crüe icons Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee. Jackson explained how the two musicians influenced the singer regarding her look.
As one of the most famous and legendary glam metal bands globally, Mötley Crüe members drew significant attention from music lovers and journalists with their androgynous styles and unique looks, including makeup, hair, and clothes, when they started to hit the rock stage in the ’80s. The band inspired that era’s fashion and the next generation of musicians who wanted to pursue successful careers like them.
Even though her musical approach is very different from Mötley Crüe, Paris Jackson is a Mötley Crüe fan, and the band members inspired her a lot throughout her life. The people who have been following Jackson for a long time know that she and her ex-boyfriend Michael Snoddy have matching tattoos. Paris has ‘Motley’ on her inner lip, and Snoddy has ‘Crue.’ Also, she supported the band in the premiere of their biopic ‘The Dirt.’
In her interview, Paris Jackson revealed that she decided to buy and wear red lipstick because she wanted to look like her favorite rock stars, Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx, famous for their red lips. Consequently, she chose KVD Beauty and has been using their lipsticks since then. So this collaboration between the singer and the brand was an excellent choice considering her history with its products.
Jackson stated in her interview that:
“I wanted to look like my favorite ’80s rock stars, Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx. All those cool dudes from the ’80s wore red lipstick. I wanted to be like them, and the first one I picked happened to be from KVD, and I stuck with it.”
Furthermore, Paris Jackson, the new face of KVD Beauty’s Tattoo Pencil, can team up with the brand to work on more products, and one of them will possibly be a Mötley Crüe-themed makeup set if they get the band members’ permission about it.
