Skrillex struck up an unusual romance with British singer Ellie Goulding after approaching her online!
The dance music maestro has been dating Goulding since last year (2011) and has now revealed that he first got in touch with her via the web.
After receiving his email, Goulding and Skrillex began communicating over the phone- which lead to Ellie making a trip over to meet her man in America.
Skrillex told Rolling Stone, "(We first met) months and months ago. I sent her an email, like, 'I'm Skrillex. I don't know if you know who I am, but I love your s**t.' We started texting and talking on the phone. Just randomly, when she was in New York, she flew out to Memphis for a couple of days to see me."
In the interview, which was recorded before last month's (February) Grammy Awards, he also said, "We're not a public thing, but I want to take her to the Grammys and have a seat for her," adding, "I love her. She's my f**king girl. I definitely want to take her, but the red carpet can be weird."
English indie pop meets American dance? Too cute!
