Skrillex: Cruise Death Was Tragic for Everyone Onboard

EXCLUSIVE

Skrillex took a break from celebrating after the AMAs Sunday night ... and got very serious and emotional about the woman who went overboard during the Mad Decent Boat Party.

Skrillex was one of the headliners on the recent EDM cruise that had to return to port following the tragedy. Parts of the excursion were cancelled, and several performances were postponed.

As we reported ... many of the 3,000 fans who were onboard are pissed their trip was cut short -- and Skrillex addresses their concerns -- but the real takeaway is ... he's still torn up about the whole situation.
