LMFAO Is Splitting Up
The duo recently announced that they will be splitting, details inside!
LMFAO is a Uncle/Nephew duo, not sure if you knew that or not but yep Redfoo is SkyBlu's uncle. They said that they are splitting up because they wanted to pursue other interests...essentially the most generic reason ever for a musical group to break up. Come on guys!
Redfoo is currently working on his Tennis attire line, and he announced the hiatus (meaning there's a possibility of them getting back together!) he said “I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years,” Redfoo told news.com.au. “And we’re kind of like saying, well, let’s just do what’s natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time.”
Sounds like maybe they got to a point where party rocking just wasn't as much fun anymore. Redfoo said that he doesn't even know if he and Skyblu will get back together in the musical sense. Sad day for party rockers everywhere. Redfoo did also say he will be embarking on a solo career and he said “All the music that I’m going to make is always going to be LMFAO-ish, I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music.”
I can honestly say this is sad to hear! I think LMFAO get's a lot of flack for being just a "party" band but I think that's why they're so successful. They're one of those bands who I can just pop in their cd and instantly I'm in a good mood. They also make me want to dance. Well on the bright side who knows what the future has in store for both Redfoo and SkyBlu, maybe one day they will reunite. Until then I'm really excited to hear Redfoo's solo stuff.
