He loves Patron and he came to party rock! ;)
Shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, everybody – that was exactly how the party started at Play Club @ The Roof during its grand launch featuring the one and only Sky Blu. Mr. Party President himself, was in town on 6th Nov, to give partygoers a night like no other. Known for some of his most massive hits with his uncle, Red Foo, during his LMFAO days, Sky Blu brought his dancers, DJ, and the Big Bad Crew along with him to Play Club @ The Roof.
From performing his most popular hits including “Shots”, “Party Rock Anthem”, “Sorry For Party Rocking”, and “Sexy & I Know It”, Sky Blu reassured fans that he is indeed the Party President with his massive energy and vibrant persona. Of course, before party rockin’, we sat down for a quick chat with the man himself to find out what he’s been up to and what he has planned for the next couple of months.
Hey Sky Blu! How are you? Is there anything in particular that you’re looking forward to at Play Club tonight?
Hello love, I’m good, thank you. Yourself? I’m looking forward to seeing all the people lose themselves, like I lose myself. I mean it’s only right that we both go there, you know what I’m sayin’? I’m excited to put on a show and be the excuse for people to let loose.
I’m good, thanks. I’m sure everyone is just as excited to party with you! You’ve had a phenomenal success with LMFAO. What would you say has been the highlight of your career so far?
The highlight of my career so far? Hmm…Probably playing Staples Center, which is one of the biggest sports arenas in my hometown. Before Foo and I even started LMFAO, we’ve always dreamed that we would sell out Staples Center on our own and we did. I mean we’ve had sold out shows around the world but that was very special because it was sold out, all our family members were there, and even the energy before the show was so dense and amazing. Everybody I knew was there and it was just WOW! It was a beautiful experience.
A dream come true, ey? Speaking of achievements, following the success of your very own solo album, what are you working on right now?
A dream come true indeed. I’m currently working on the biggest commercial project I’ve ever worked on in my life. It consists of many albums and it is an unbelievable expression of music, people are going to be able see every aspect and spectrum of Sky Blu. I think it’s going to be great, it’s going to be bad*ss, that’s all I can say! Haha.
Sweet! You’re known to be the Party President so what are the 3 things you would change if you were elected President of the world for just one day?
The first thing I would change is I would have music that was made with the intention of love and happiness to be played on the streets. I think that would lift up everyone’s spirits and make people happy. Nothing annoying, just amazing music as you walk down the streets, you know what I mean? Two, I would make it mandatory that we take care of the world and the environment. Finally, I would make sure that I would be president forever so that we can party everyday and every week is a holiday and there we go! Haha.
Haha. Now that we’re on the subject of parties, what is the weirdest thing you’ve ever experienced or seen during a party?
Oh you don’t want to know that.
But we do! Come on.
Haha okay okay. Here’s a good one. I was at a party and I was talking to these three girls and then a dude comes over, he says “Hey, my name is Bob” or some sh*t right, one of the girls then says “You look like a pornstar”. Here’s where it gets gnarly. You want me to continue? Let me put on my glasses first. Anyway, Bob says “Yeah I’m a pornstar. I’ll have sex with you right here”. She says “No, you won’t”. Next thing you know Bob picks her up, bends her over and they start having sex while continuing in the conversation that I was having with the other two ladies. So now, there’s people having sex and we’re all talking about everything. I was 19, at this grown up party so yeah. Haha.
Okay. Haha. Anyway, what does the rest of 2014 and the new year hold for you?
Hahaha you asked. Erm, I’m working on releasing a few records so 2015 will be the release of my single on New Year’s, following by a lot of music. Music that I am so honoured to be a part of. I am someone who that really views his music as art, I could care less about money, truly. I meditate a lot and it’s more important for me to feel happiness and joy than it is for the money, not saying that it would be a by product of what I do. I mean it’s nice but what I do is for the love, my music is my art. So now, people are going to see that side of me but I still party like a motherf*cker so it’s all good!
Like the true Party President you are ey! Haha
That’s right. I’m the Party President so it’s all good! ;)
