There sure has been a lot of ink spilled on Skrillex these last few months (yep—guilty as charged), and with his Rolling Stone cover story out recently, it’s been revealed that he grew up in a house of Scientologists—and, in his characteristically positive fashion, he says his experience with the church was all good.
