LMFAO Breaks Up
Uncle-nephew electropop duo Redfoo, 37, and SkyBlu, 26, more popularly known as LMFAO, are shuffling no more. The "Sexy And I Know It" and "Party Rock Anthem" stars announced that they are splitting up amicably. "I feel like we've been doing this for so long, five or six years," Redfoo, who's been performing with SkyBlue since 2006, told News.com.au. "And we're kind of saying, well, let's just do what's natural and just kind of explore that, instead of forcing it all the time." Son of Motown founder Berry Gordy, Redfoo, real name Stefan Kendal Gordy, and SkyBlu, real name Skylar Gordy, made no allusions to a future reunion, simply stating that they were moving in "different directions."
Multi-talented Redfoo, who was spotted earlier this summer at the U.S. Open cheering on friend Victoria Azarenka, has been coaching tennis to clients like Ayaka Okuno — and even has plans to establish his own line of tennis apparel. But Redfoo will not be abandoning music altogether. In fact, his next project will have him supplying tunes for the New England Patriots. "I'm actually working on a song for them, because they asked me to write a song for their season," Redfoo revealed, although he maintains that he will stick to what he knows best. "All the music that I'm going to make is always going to be LMFAO-ish… I love all the topics that we talk about," Redfoo said. "I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music."
Although they're growing apart professionally, Redfoo and SkyBlu are still close personally. "I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crowds, but we're always family," Redfoo said. "He'll always be my nephew, I'll always be his uncle."
