'New Thang' singer Redfoo believes many people in the music industry wanted his former band LMFAO to be a ''one-hit wonder''.
The 39-year-old singer was worried his breakthrough material was too ''new and radical'' when he and his musical partner Sky Blu started off in 2008.
Redfoo - real name Stefan Kendal Gordy - explained: ''They wanted us to be a one-hit-wonder. Sometimes when you are that new and radical. The industry says, 'Woah, no.'

He told BANG Showbiz: ''I crowd-surfed at a gig at a college and they stripped me butt naked. I had thin pants on, like Arabian pants. All I had was the elastic band left, they ripped everything off!''

Sad news for LMFAO fans: the group are going on hiatus! At least if the words of their 37 year-old co-founder Redfoo are to be believed. According to The Press Association, Redfood and his nephew and creative (we use that word loosely) partner Sky Blu are moving in "different directions" and, though they'll always hang out together, it's looking like the end of the road as far as their group goes.
"I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crowds" commented Redfoo. He added: "but we're always family. He'll always be my nephew, I'll always be his uncle." Continuing, the artist mused: "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."
Redfoo will instead be focusing on his solo work and said that he wouldn't be deviating too much from the style that's made him famous. "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," he said. "I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music."
