Breaking news: LMFAO is not done party rocking.
After the group's label confirmed to E! News that LMFAO - aka the duo made up of Redfoo and SkyBlu -is going on an indefinite hiatus, SkyBlu has spoken up to set the record straight.
"Well, you know, first of all, we're not breaking up. I know that for sure. We're family and stuff, so it's always love," he said to MTV news. "It's interesting because somebody will say one thing [and] it's just like high school, then all of a sudden [it's] 'They're breaking up. They're fighting.' It kind of gets blown out of proportion, so we're definitely not breaking up."
Skyblu also announced the news on the duo's official Twitter page, posting, "We're not breaking up baby" with a link to the MTV article.
While they are not splitting up for good, SkyBlu does confirm that they are taking a hiatus from party rocking and will be focusing on separate projects for the time being.
"Well, you know, we've been working as LMFAO for so long, and you know we've been working on a lot of other projects as well. And so I feel like our creative paths, we need to kind of realize these projects we've been working on. And it'll free up our minds and stuff to be able to take on another LMFAO project because the next one we do it's got to be that like [an] amazing, amazing crazy album and stuff like that," he said. "It's kind of like, let us get our wind up, let us kind of show the world who we are as individuals and then we come together stronger than ever."
It was the play seen - and talked and tweeted about - 'round the world.
And in the wake of the inexplicable call made by the replacement refs on "Monday Night Football" that led to victory for the Seattle Seahawks over the Green Bay Packers, a statement was released to E! News on Tuesday that just might make things, if no less frustrating, definitely a bit more amusing.
It turns out that several of the substitute officials that the NFL recently hired were actually fired for poor officiating in the - wait for it - Lingerie Football League!
"Because of the LFL's perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game, but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field occurrences of incompetent officiating, we chose to part ways with a crew which apparently is now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials, but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations," LFL commissioner Mitchell Mortaza said.
During Monday night's game, two of the replacement refs made different calls on a game-ending Hail Mary pass in the end zone. One official ruled it a touchdown for the Seahawks while the other ruled it a touchback after the ball was intercepted by the Packers' defense.
"We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so," Mortaza added. "However, in light of the finale of 'Monday Night Football,' we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth about who is officiating these games."
Alicia Keys has been getting in touch with her spiritual side, headlining "MTV Crashes Manchester" in the city's cathedral, The Associated Press reports.
The 14-time Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter said performing in a place of worship was "a real honor" and added that there was "an energy there that's very different."
Alongside old favorites, Keys on Monday night treated the 1,000-strong U.K. crowd to songs from her highly anticipated new album "Girl on Fire," saying afterward that it was incredible to see people get into the new tracks.
Since releasing her debut album "Songs in A Minor" Keys has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. "Girl on Fire" is set for release Nov. 26.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have added a boy to their brood, the AP reports.
Publicist Leslie Sloane says the baby was born in Los Angeles. His name and details of the birth weren't released.
The couple also have a 3-year-old daughter, Charlotte. They celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this month.
Gellar and Prinze have co-starred in two "Scooby-Doo" films along with "I Know What You Did Last Summer."
Last year, the 35-year-old Gellar starred in the CW drama "Ringer." The 36-year-old Prinze had a role on the final season of Fox's "24."
Us Weekly first reported the birth.
A Texas judge has ordered DNA testing on a man who claims to be the brother of the late "The Jeffersons" star Sherman Hemsley, the AP reports.
Richard Thornton is challenging the validity of Hemsley's will, which names the actor's longtime manager, Flora Enchinton of El Paso, as sole beneficiary. Hemsley died of lung cancer July 24.
Judge Patricia Chew on Monday rescheduled the El Paso trial on Hemsley's estate to begin Oct. 31.
Thornton, of Philadelphia, sought the DNA testing and must provide results by Oct. 15. Hemsley was born in Philadelphia but had lived in El Paso for the past 20 years.
Court documents indicate Hemsley's estate is worth more than $50,000.
It's official: Sean Lowe is starring in the upcoming season of "The Bachelor," ABC tells People exclusively.
The Dallas businessman and entrepreneur won the hearts of fans across the country as he wooed North Carolina single mom Emily Maynard on "The Bachelorette" last season, landing in the final three. Maynard sent Lowe, the second runner-up, home as she'd fallen head over heels for Utah entrepreneur Jef Holm, accepting his marriage proposal.
"I was standing at that rose ceremony thinking I was going to marry her," Lowe told People last July of the heartbreaking moment when Maynard sent him home.
Tuesday's announcement comes after months of speculation, with casting rumors ranging from former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky's ex-fiance Roberto Martinez to Olympian Ryan Lochte.
On the possibility of being the next Bachelor, Lowe told People at the time, "I'm an open-minded optimist, and I believe the process can work. If I found my wife, it would be worth it."
Production is already under way for the 17th season of the reality dating show, which will begin airing in January. For more information on the contestants this season, visit ABC.com.
