Katie Couric and Skrilex make an EDM track

Posted on


Katie Couric can now add EDM producer to her résumé. The veteran journalist interviewed Skrillex in a segment for Yahoo News, and ended up fiddling around in the studio, where Skrillex showed her how he actually makes music. They even wrote a hook together about “maple syrup.”

In an extended interview, Skrillex also spoke about his collaboration with Justin Bieber and Diplo, why he wouldn’t perform at the Grammys and what it was like to get bullied as an emo kid.

They also swapped glasses.
