SINGAPORE: South Korean pop music sensation Psy admitted Saturday that he sometimes gets sick of his massive hit “Gangnam Style” but will continue performing the number that made him world-famous.
Speaking at a news conference in Singapore ahead of a free performance for fans, the 34-year-old — clad in a black suit and his trademark sunglasses — was modest about his fame and said he was just another person doing his job. “Sometimes, honestly, yes I get tired or I get sick of it because I got so many requests to teach them, you know, like average let me say 50 requests per city, per country,” said Psy, whose full name is Park Jae-Sang.
“I already taught the dance to so many people, so many times but still the dance makes me here, to make a press conference in Singapore, so of course sometimes I’m tired about it, but I got to do it, it’s my job,” he added. The video has so far notched up more than 860 million views, overtaking “Baby” by Canadian teen heart-throb Justin Bieber, on more than 807 million.
