LMFAO are an American electropop duo consisting of Redfoo (Stefan Kendal Gordy, born September 3, 1975) and SkyBlu (Skyler Austen Gordy, born August 23, 1986). Redfoo is SkyBlu's uncle, as Redfoo's father, music mogul Berry Gordy, is SkyBlu's grandfather. RedFoo and SkyBlu both grew up in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood Pacific Palisades, where they formed the group LMFAO in 2006. On September 21, 2012, the duo announced that they are on hiatus. The duo has said that its original name was Sexe Dude (read as 'Sexy Dudes') and that the two subsequently changed it at the advice of their grandmother. While 'LMFAO' is a common Internet slang abbreviation for 'Laughing My Fucking Ass Off', in this case it stands specifically for 'Laughing My Freaking Ass Off'. LMFAO began their career performing as part of the electro club scene in Los Angeles, which at the time featured DJ/producers like Steve Aoki and Adam Goldstein.
