PSY’s New Year Resolution, To End Gangnam Style

Will this be the end of Gangnam Style:

It’s arguably the biggest song of 2012, but the reign of “Gangnam Style” is coming to a close. Psy told MTV that he will be “ending” his smash hit tonight during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, capping a whirlwind year for the K-pop star, whose worldwide breakthrough came in the form of the signature pony dance in the “Gangnam Style” video. ”Being in Times Square on New Year’s Eve is already special – it’s the biggest stage in the universe – plus it’s my birthday, so, with all that, it may be the ending of ‘Gangnam Style,’” said Psy. “I mean, what better way to do it? It’s my biggest and most meaningful birthday.”  [Rolling Stone Magazine]

You can read the rest at the link, but if you read the whole thing PSY is not ending Gangnam Style he just wants to end it in America in order to set the stage for releasing another single.  For some reason I don’t think he will be releasing this single in America.

    He speaks English passably enough to hold interviews but he’ll have a harder time writing unawkward lyrics if all he tries is to translate his thoughts into English like some of the other songwriters have done. I’m glad he’s letting Gangnam Style move on but don’t sell out trying to top it.

    Enough with the complaints about PSY related articles already. The news is the news.

    He has a lot to say about Psy. Howard Stern Goofs on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 01/02/13

    Howard Stern was making fun of Ryan Seacrest who was “overpronuciating” Gangnam correctly as Koreans do. It’s America and it’s Gang-nam, the gang is like a gang of bloods or crips. He also questioned psy’s sexuality wondering whether he’s gay because of the clothes he wears. Oh and Psy now has an entourage but the director of Rockin New Years Eve kept cutting away at(according to Howard) the best part of the song.

    Remember all the macho guys wearing pink shirts in the 1980s?

    It’s not uncommon for straight male performers to wear colorful clothes. Remember Elvis Presley?

    Who really gives a crap. He looks like a pudgy cross dresser. His female dancers would be the only I watch during his lip synching performances. I just turn down the sound and crank up Metallica and its all good after that.
