LMFAO member Redfoo has admitted he is unsure whether the duo will get back together, claiming that only "time will tell" if they reform.

The electropop pair revealed that they were going on a hiatus in September last year, although the band subsequently insisted that they weren't breaking up and their split was only temporary.

Speaking to Billboard, however, Redfoo said he was uncertain if he and bandmate Sky Blu would reconvene in the future. "I could easily say, 'Okay, sure, in the future we'll come back together.' But really, the most accurate way I can say that is that time will tell," he said. "It's not about just the music. It's easy to get in the studio and say 'Hey, you put a verse over here and we can just put a label on it and call it LMFAO.' That's easy - that's what we did the last album.

"You can hire producers and they tell you to insert a rap here and you put a sticker on it," he added. "That's easy to do. There's a dynamic between [Sky Blu and me] that has changed. There's a personal dynamic, and energy dynamic. I can't really speak for him, but I am very protective of that."

He also revealed that the relationship between he and his bandmate had changed, adding: "We didn't have to come together and do LMFAO, but we wanted to. It was like, 'We hang out every day. We're best friends every day. Instead of you trying to help me do my solo thing and I try to help you do your solo thing, why don't we just both do a thing together.'

"But now that isn't the case. We're not hanging out. So it doesn't make sense -- the dynamic has changed. Now we would have to fly to see each other; we used to live in the same house! The circumstances have changed. The popularity is different. The money situations are different."

At the time of their split, music fans took to NME's Facebook page to express their delight at the news. Cherry Amber Wiles wrote: "The world is now a better place", while a similarly gleeful Aimee Foote: wrote "this hasn't made my friday...THIS HAS MADE MY LIFE!:')" and William Knox said "Some faith in humanity has been restored...".

LMFAO have released two albums, 2009's 'Party Rock' and 2011's 'Sorry For Party Rocking'.
