Skrillex Sets Hair on Fire <br />at Birthday Bash: Watch

150 Pop Stars' Real Names

SONNY JOHN MOORE (a.k.a. Skrillex)

Billboard cover star Sonny Moore, aka Skrillex, is just about as well known for his iconic side-swiped hairdo as he is for dropping the bass as one of the world's most buzzworthy DJs. But at his 25th L.A. birthday party Jan. 16, Moore's famous hair spent a few tenuous seconds on fire.

As Moore bent over to blow out the candles on his birthday cake, his lengthy black locks brushed against the candles, causing the DJ to recoil in sudden alarm. But he's fine and he'll live to wub wub another day, which is a good thing, since he recently told Billboard he has "too many songs" to know what to do with for 2013.

In case you were wondering what other stars like Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga would look like with Skrillex hair (albeit not ablaze) has that covered, too.
