GET TO KNOW NEW JUDGE REDFOO:
TENNIS ENTHUSIAST He loves tennis and is a regular at all the big tennis matches across the globe. He is in a relationship with No. 3 ranked Belarus tennis champ Victoria Azarenka. He steals tennis tips from her and loves watching her practice. He also coaches a junior tennis player in Las Vegas.
HIS NAME Redfoo explains how his rapper name came about ‘‘They used to call me foolish, like ‘You’re a damn fool’, so I thought I’d take that; and then I’ve got the red hair. My parents named me Stefan Gordy and MC Stefan Gordy didn’t sound too hard, and back then rapper names had to be hard, so I named myself Redfoo’’.
HIGH SCHOOL He went to junior high school with Black Eyed Peas star and musician will.i.am and music producer GoonRock. He teamed with his old school buddy GoonRock, who produced LMFAO’s first single Party Rock Anthem, which went to No. 1 in eight countries.
CLOTHING LABEL Redfoo and his LMFAO partner SkyBlu developed a clothing label called Party Rock Clothing. The line features signature bright colours and wacky prints on pieces such as t-shirts, jeans, underwear, swimsuits, shoes, accessories and sunglasses. Sold through their online store at partyrockclothing.com
GIGS POST LMFAO LMFAO split last year to pursue individual interests with Redfoo working on songs for rapper Pitbull’s album and remixing the track Live My Life for American hip-hop quartet Far East Movement. He also wrote and produced three songs for pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen’s second album Kiss.
