How many of you know Berry Gordy's son and grandson have the current #1 song on the billboard hot 100?

Now I've heard LMFAO's songs before and the radio and clubs have been playing the hell out of "Party Rock Anthem" for the last couple months. It was only today that I found out the duo is made up of Stefan Kendal Gordy (Berry's 8th son) and Skyler Gordy (a grandson). Stefan goes by the alias of "Redfoo" and Skyler calls himself "SkyBlu". lol

They're signed to Interscope, which is owned by UMG. So far I don't know if Berry had any involvement in getting them signed/developed.

Here's the song for those of you who still haven't heard it lol

Lol. Thank you! He could never make a ''comeback'' because he doesn't have anything to come back to. He had one good song and we all know who made that song hot.

It's no surprise that you may not see a resemblance. Old man Gordy is also distantly related to late president Jimmy Carter.

I can't tell which ones the grandson and which ones the son. They both look old as hell!

DAMN!!!! The video started off so good. I was into it. Then the music started. I fled my own office in horror and disgust. If this is number one, then the industry deserves to die. RIP bitches.

Shit, now that you mention it I can definitely see it in the eyes of the taller guy.

I don't even have TV, but I've seen that video several times when I've been to other people's houses. So it must have been huge. I believe that Lauren Bennett chick is from one of those PCD sideprojects that flopped so bad with their first singles that the album never came out. The video has all these fun elements like the hairdos, the glasses and the robot, but she just doesn't really fit with the rest of it. I suppose it's important to have a sexbomb in your videos if you want to have a hit these days.

I think he'd fit in perfectly with all of the other crappy singers who have taken over the Hot 100.

Except for one thing: no one knows who the fuck he is either. lol And to be honest, I have never heard this LMFAO anyways.

maybe not direct involvement, but I kind of doubt it's a coincidence!
