LMFAO—Sexy and Their Dad Knows It
If you were near any club, radio, mp3 player, or I-turd that played cheesy , safe feux hip-hop last summer, you couldn’t escape LMFAO. This group, led by DJs Redfoo & SkyBlu (great names for Gatorade Ice flavors, not so much for rappers) lit up the charts with their overplayed single Party Rock Anthem. Even though the song sounded like a something that belongs in a Zumba fitness informerical, it put LMFAO on the map. Of course, DJs Redfoo (Stefan Kendal Gordy) & SkyBlu (Skyler Austen Gordy) probably would’ve gotten there anyway. Why? Possibly because of their biological relations to Berry Gordy. You know, Berry Gordy, the guy that FOUNDED MOTOWN RECORDS. I’m going out on a limb to say that LMFAO are not as talented as the Temptations or Supremes.
Also, this isn’t the first time it happened. Rockwell (born Kennedy William Gordy) scored a hit in 1984’s “Somebody’s Watching Me.” You know the awful song that was only made decent because Michael Freaking Jackson sang the slightly catchy chorus. Gee, I wonder how they got him to do that? Oh yeah, now I remember. His dad INVENTED MOTOWN!
If you didn’t already know, LMFAO comes from text lingo & means “Laughing My F-ing Ass Off.” Which the Gordy’s kids are doing, at the expense of all unknown (& actually talented) hip-hop groups, with no family connections.
