LMFAO will not apologize for party rocking—despite the fact that its new album is titled Sorry for Party Rocking.
The duo—of SkyBlu and Redfoo—are actually Skyler Gordy and Stefan Kendal Gordy, and if their last names ring a bell, then you are not far from the truth: Stefan is Motown Records’ founder Berry Gordy’s son, Skyler his nephew. The pair never exploited their family’s considerable music business clout, however, as their first album—2009’s Party Rock—was released via Black Eyed Peas’ frontman will.i.am’s record imprint on Interscope. The duo pumped out hedonistic party singles one after another, collaborating with the likes of Lil’ Jon one minute, guesting on a David Guetta hit the next.
So while its long-delayed Sorry for Party Rocking album is due out later this year, the group is planning on showcasing some of its new material by party rocking this year’s Bamboozle Festival, April 29th to May1st in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Before the group does that, however, SkyBlu sat down to answer PopMatters’ famed 20 Questions, where he reveals his desire to try every drug at Woodstock, the fact that The Notebook made him cry, and how in a perfect world, it’d just be him and 2Pac hittin’ up the Ritz . . .
