The other day I thought this Lana Del Rey/”Hunger Games” video mashup was the greatest thing to happen to my online life (and let’s be honest, most of my life is spent online) since I discovered you could make a monkey face and a crab that walks in Google chat. But then this happened:
Dennis Haskins, AKA EFFING PRINCIPAL BELDING And Skrillex hang out.
Mr. Belding (er, Dennis Haskins, but he probably answers to “Belding”) and Skrillex were photographed breathing the same air in Las Vegas at party for club XS. Remote Control Blog’s Rebecca Brown (@Rebecca_NYC), who is the blessed soul who drew my attention to this Belding x Skrillex mashup, brought up a salient point: Do you think Mr. Belding thought Skrillex was Corey Feldman? I wonder how much Belding gets paid to show up to events, or if he just does it for free knowing how much joy people get out of saying, “OH MY GOD, THAT’S MR. BELDING!” It’s almost a sort of charity, in a way.
The Grammy Awards are this Sunday, and Skrillex, who was MTV’s EDM Artist of 2011, is nominated for five Grammys, including Best New Artist. He also just picked up two HIGHLY PRESTIGIOUS 2012 mtvU Woodie Award nominations for “Woodie of the Year” and “Performing Woodie” and sold out massive shows on the East and West Coast last month. But I bet meeting Mr. Belding was probably trumped all of that.
