"I don't care if people hate me. I mean, I get it," the Grammy-winning DJ told Pitchfork. "When you were young, you were like, 'The Backstreet Boys are gay!'"
"All due respect to all those artists, but that's not what I do. I don't play on TV," said Skrillex. "My performances are different because you're captivated more by everything around you rather than just staring at something... It's not something you can capture on the Grammys."
The DJ, who recently began dating English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding, also said that he's not chasing fame, and explained that he left From First to Last after they got a major label deal because it wasn't the type of music he wanted to create.
"So it's funny to see [fame] happen again now. I don't want to be that," said Skrillex. "I'm just making music and hanging out with my friends and, if we're gonna do a show, we can make it special and bring robots out or something. It's a platform to do crazy, fun sh*t."
