Victoria Azarenka is one of the greatest tennis players on the planet, so it's only fitting that she has an accomplished companion to share her success with.

In what might be the odd couple of the year—and we're only in January—Azarenka is currently dating one of the members of the music group LMFAO.

Stefan Kendal Gordy—or Redfoo, as most people know him by—is the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr.

If neither of those names ring a bell, maybe Redfoo's music will.  

He is one of the DJs in the band that produced the song "Party Rock Anthem." A sample of the song can be found here. While you might not know the song by name, chances are you've heard it someplace.

Now, I'm not here to pass judgement on the type of music Redfoo produces, and I will say that his group has been quite successful with their hit song. LMFAO has seen countless talk show appearances, awards shows and concerts to prove the band's success. There were very few radio stations you could listen to over the past year that weren't playing the LMFAO hit song.

What I do find strange is how a guy who wears thick, white-framed glasses, cow pants and vest—all while sporting a puffy hairstyle—can land a star like Azarenka. In fact, where would these two even cross paths?

Nevertheless, putting those thoughts aside, it appears the two are quite happy in their relationship.

Redfoo has been spotted with Azarenka at numerous events, most recently at both the U.S. Open last year and at the Australian Open in 2013, cheering his girlfriend on as she captured another Aussie Open crown.

While the two may be from completely opposite sides of the tracks as far as their respective careers are concerned, things seem to be going well for this young couple.

Oftentimes, we—myself included—get caught up in the differences between two people in a relationship. But that doesn't mean those two people aren't right for each other.

Because opposites attract, right?
