Say What?! LMFAO Breaks Up?
Who’s sorry for Party Rocking now? I guess LMFAO is. Idiot twins Redfoo and Skyblu (okay they aren’t actually twins – Redfoo is actually Skyblu’s uncle -- but you get the point) have announced that their dancetastic duo is taking a break and will not be making music together for the foreseeable future. Redfoo told the Washington Post that he and SkyBlu were headed in "different directions" and didn’t know when the gruesome twosome would reunite. This just confirms my suspicions: families that party rock together, don’t always stay together.
What duo will delight us with funny glasses and ironic t-shirts? What sweet jams are dudes gonna fist pump and date rape chicks to now? What anthem will $30k millionaires get bottle service to? What will girls with ombre hair and too-tight bandage dresses booty pop to in da club? So many questions! So few answers!
Redfoo told the Post the reasoning behind the break, saying, "I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years. 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 there was some major trouble in paradise. LMFAO may have been around for five or six years but LMFAO has only been exceedingly and mind numbingly popular for about a year. Who takes a extended and possibly permanent break from an extremely successful (albeit terrible) group still in the height of popularity? Probably people who have major problems being around each other.
I wonder what's been going on with the "we look like we purchased every ironic item at Urban Outfitters and decided to wear it at the same time" uncle/nephew twosome to make them decide to take time apart? One can only guess: Too many Patron Silver shots, shots, shots went to their head? Too much party rocking? Were they not really in Miami (even though they said they were)? Was Redfoo sorry, but not sorry enough for party rocking? Was Skyblu still sexy but didn’t know it any more? Was it too weird for the party people around them to party rock with an uncle and nephew? Who knows?! Much like who shot JFK, the location of Jimmy Hoffa’s body and how those monoliths got to Stonehenge – we may never know the answer to another one of life’s great mysteries. Sigh.
Whatever the reason – this news makes me very sad. I mean these guys are the voice of a generation – a generation of Jerseylicious/trustfund/douchetastic/clubaholic idiots -- and must be remembered as the greatest super duo to ever wear Zubaz after 1995. I am going to go now and mourn properly by listening to Shots on repeat and crying myself to sleep. But I won't cry too much because there is some silver lining for LMFAO fans -- Redfoo told the Post he will is working on a solo album and it won't stray far from his past LMFAO hits.
Redfoo said, "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. I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music."
WOO HOO! LET'S ALL TAKE SOME SHOTS AND PARTY ROCK! AND LETS NOT BE SORRY FOR IT!
