Redfoo has defended his adopted hometown of Sydney as he recounted being attacked by a stranger in an unprovoked attack.
A 21-year-old man has been charged after allegedly glassing The X Factor judge at a Sydney club overnight.
"All of a sudden I was talking to some girls, and bam, something hit me in the head," Redfoo told Sunrise on Thursday morning.
"I just want to identify his face, so if I see him again I can say ‘You’re that kinda dude, who does that sort of stuff’”.

Red Foo very lucky not to have been hit in the eye. Glassed while partying with friends at the Golden Sheaf hotel @7NewsSydney— Matthew Snelson (@matthewsnelson7) August 27, 2014
“He looked at me and taunted me and winked his eye, just to say ‘I got you’ or something”.
“This could have happened anywhere in the world – it’s not a reflection of Sydney Australia. This is just a case of an idiot in a club”.
“It’s not my fault everybody in the club is dancing to [my] single,” Redfoo joked, as he also suggested more venues use plastic cups.
Thanks everybody for all your love and support! In Australia to all over the world! ❤️— Redfoo (@RedFoo) August 28, 2014
The singer had been with friends in a private area of the Golden Sheaf Hotel in Double Bay, when the man approached him and allegedly smashed a glass over his head.
After speaking to witnesses police believe the attack, that happened just before 1am, was unprovoked.
Paramedics treated Redfoo for a one centimetre gash wound, but he wasn't taken to hospital.
He took to Twitter replying to shocked witnesses, saying "jealousy is a hell of a drug!"
A 21-year-old man was detained by police and later charged with malicious wounding.
The accused was released on conditional bail and has been ordered to front at Waverley Local Court next month.
Redfoo is the youngest son of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, who signed The Jackson Five in 1968.
