  • [2012-09-24]
  • “Gangnam Style” syndrome is spreading from the U.S. to other parts of the world like Europe and South America. BBC 1 Radio’s music program “Scott Mills” recently conducted a phone interview with Psy who is currently in Los Angeles on September 20th local time.
     
    Mills, the host of the show, congratulated Psy for his song “Gangnam Style” placing 11th on the Billboard Hot 100, saying the song was played all week in England. Psy replied, “it’s all thanks to you”. Meanwhile, to Mills’ comment saying “you’ve become a superstar,” Psy replied, “not yet. No one recognizes me when I take my sunglasses off,” bringing laughter to the studio.




    Mills asked Psy if he taught Justin Bieber the “horse dance” to which Psy said Bieber was on tour so he hasn’t met him yet, but talking to him on the phone he found out that Bieber already mastered the horse dance. So, Psy said he would wait and see how well Bieber does it the next time they meet. Meanwhile, Psy added that he taught the dance to Usher last week and he was great at it. Ahead of the phone interview, Scott Mills translated the lyrics to “Gangnam Style” and read it like a poem to soft music.

    Meanwhile, Swiss media “20 Minuten Online” also published an article evaluating why Psy is gaining so much popularity on September 20th while on the 17th the Polish TV channel TVN introduced the “Psy Phenomenon” in depth, with a clip of Polish citizens doing the horse dance.
     
    In South America, the Mexican daily, “Reforma” printed an article with the title “Slaves to His Style” on September 20th on the front cover of its “People” section.
     
    The U.S. media continued to spotlight Psy with the E!Online talk show, “Chealsea Lately” airing a parody of “Gangnam Style” with Psy and the show host in an office. [Yonhap]
