The last time we checked in with Redfoo and Skyblu of LMFAO, they were getting their swag on at the Grammys gifting lounge. This was hardly our first run-in with the quirky electro-pop duo – we also caught them ping-pongin’ for charity, fist-pumpin’ with the boys of “Jersey Shore,” cookin’ up some snacks, and we even crashed their crib!
Since then, the boys went and dropped mega-hit “Party Rock Anthem” earlier this year, and they have blown up bigger than Redfoo’s afro! After the release of their third single off their Sorry for Party Rocking album, “Sexy and I Know It,” they seem to have single-handedly changed the face of hip-hop music – not to mention animal print pants! With their free-spirited style and not-taking-life-so-seriously attitude, LMFAO are true entertainers... It’s no wonder we’ve gotten them on camera so many times!
Of course, entertaining should come naturally for these guys; they are, after all, from prominent music stock. You see, Redfoo (born Stefan Gordy) is the son of legendary record producer and Motown Records founder, Berry Gordy. Skyblu (born Skyler Gordy) is Berry Gordy’s grandson. For those keeping score, that would make Redfoo Skyblu’s uncle. Taking the musical abilities already in theor blood and mixing it with other musical influences like Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and even the Black Eyed Peas, LMFAO has created a sound that is uniquely their own.
The duo has been most recently nominated for two American Music Awards – New Artist of the Year, and Pop or Rock Music: Favorite Band, Duo, or Group. Surely it’s only the beginning! With LMFAO in the house tonight, everybody’s gonna have a good time!
