10 things you didn’t know about Steve Aoki
Cake-throwing American house DJ and record producer speaks out Discuss this article
1 Angel, by Sarah McLachlan, is Aoki’s all-time favourite love song. No, we are not judging.
2 The last thing he does before sleeping at night is clean his rifle. That doesn’t worry us at all.
3 The one food he can’t live without is sushi (wonder how that happened).
4 He’s emotional. He cries when watching commercials that show animal cruelty with a Sarah McLachlan kind of song playing in the background.
5 He listens to Sarah McLachlan alone, in his room, while staring up at the ceiling. He gets caught too, sometimes. He admits it’s embarrassing.
6 Given a choice, he picks puppies over kittens. Cute.
7 His friends ask him to deejay at their house parties. The best one, according to him, was for Lindsay Lohan’s 21st birthday, back-to-back with DJ AM and Samantha Ronson.
8 He would be a scientist if he wasn’t a musician.
9 He graduated from the University of California with a degree in Feminist Studies and Sociology.
10 He dreams of featuring Sarah McLachlan in his music videos in the future. We didn’t see this one coming.By Shereen D’Souza
